'Traffic Jam': A Playlist for Chris Christie & The Cast of Bridgegate

Posted: Updated:

"I am who I am, but I am not a bully," New Jersey Governor Chris Christie declared Thursday during his epic, Springsteen concert-length press conference. Strangely enough, I am also who I am -- most of us are, come to think of it -- and in my personal experience growing up in the Garden State, non-bullies rarely have to loudly identify themselves as such. So to distinguish myself as much as possible from the similarly named former Port Authority executive David Wildstein, here is my playlist for Christie, Wildstein, Bridget Anne Kelly and the entire cast of the no doubt forthcoming musical comedy Bridgegate.
