It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, for Chris Christie. New Jersey is hosting the Super Bowl, so the Governor is in demand to rub elbows with the rich and famous. On the other hand - his staff, campaign manager, and ex-best friends are under subpoenas that are due to the Legislature on Monday. Have a nice weekend, Gov.
Oh, the humanity. Today was meant to be Chris Christie’s Super Bowl party, literally. Instead, the Hindenburg, engulfed by flames, is crashing right before our eyes.

After a scathing New York Times article appeared about Bridgegate and Christie was implicated by his old pal David Wildstein, the Governor appeared at an event for radio personality Howard Stern's birthday. He schmoozed and left early without answering questions from reporters.

“You made it across the bridge?” howled one heckler as the problem-plagued Christie — in a navy Windbreaker and black scarf — sat impassively on the stage at Broadway and W. 43rd St.
~ New York Daily News
Super Bowl week was supposed to be another victory lap for Christie on his road to the White House. Instead it has turned into public booing and blink, and you’ll miss him public appearances. Christie’s approval ratings have plummeted both nationally and in New Jersey. The governor is now trailing Hillary Clinton by 12 points in the hypothetical head to head 2016 matchup.

Also on Saturday, February 1, 2014:
Christie's Office released an email about David Wildstein and the New York Times article that implied knowledge of the George Washington Bridge closure.

Oh no! David Wildstein was “publicly accused by hishigh school social studies teacher of deceptive behavior.” So Christie tells the truth!
— Harold Itzkowitz (@HaroldItz) February 2, 2014
Christie is now claiming that this Wildstein guy is such a horrible person but yet, Christie hired him for a 6-figure job position! C'mon!

Christie rages at Wildstein, rips NYT "sloppy reporting." And confirms just how OVER his presidential prospects are. http://t.co/hfjaDIxANB

Christie's defense: I (and everyone) always knew Wildstein is "deceptive" & "tumultuous." That's why... I appointed him to a powerful post!

Isn't it a bit weird that Chris Christie keeps bragging that he was a BMOC in high school & Wildstein wasn't? Or just pathetic? #GloryDays

One thing that is really smart is creating jobs for "tumultuous" people who are "not productive." http://t.co/PDWl2RAzXn
