(Newser) – Chris Christie may have just hit bottom: The New Jersey governor is such a huge fan of Bruce Springsteen that he actually wept when the Boss hugged him. But last night, hours after Christie's State of the State speech, Springsteen joined Jimmy Fallon on Late Night to bash the guv, in song, over his George Washington Bridge traffic scandal. "Governor Chris Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey, Traffic Jam," set to the tune of "Born to Run," included lyrics like: "They shut down the tollbooths of glory 'cause we didn't endorse Chris Christie" and "You're killing the working man/who's stuck in Governor Christie's Fort Lee, New Jersey, traffic jam." As of 2012, Christie had been to 129 Bruce Springsteen concerts, the New Jersey Star-Ledger notes.

And it begins... This is the part tubby was waiting for... No publicity is bad publicity... So called "celebrities" will take over now to keep him in the public's eye... He's having White House wetdreams...

In response, Gov. Christie's staff immediately shut down Tenth Avenue, E Street, and Thunder Road. The only way to get anywhere is to take the Backstreets.
