Why should the drudgery of your day job running New Jersey or its largest city keep you from chasing your dream of being a sketch comedian? That’s only one of the questions posed by a recently released video starring Gov. Christie and Newark Mayor Cory Booker.
Paid for by the state Republican Party, the video was released at a legislative correspondents’ banquet last week and successfully promoted through social media. It shows Christie wondering if he could raise his profile (though one wonders how much higher it could get) by helping state police respond to emergencies. Suddenly, Booker appears and is dispatched to assist in several dramatic rescues — much as he actually did by leading a neighbor out of her burning house a few weeks ago.
