Gov. Christie’s Bridge to Nowhere...

Gov. Chris Christie’s news conference Thursday reminded me of the latest version of Richard Nixon’s 1952 “Checkers” speech. For those of you not immersed in political trivia, that was when the then-GOP vice presidential nominee took to the airwaves to refute charges he used a secret slush fund provided by campaign donors. “Checkers” was the name of Nixon’s dog, a gift from one of those donors.
