Chris Christie has taken a lot of grief over Bridgegate, his treatment of New Jersey teachers, and allegedly putting his political ambitions ahead of his duties as New Jersey governor.
But let’s put our priorities in order. A lot of local people say Christie crossed the line in Philadelphia Sunday night.
The New York Daily News reported that Christie watched the Dallas Cowboys defeat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-27 in a private suite with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones at Lincoln Financial Field. Christie has admitted to being a Cowboys fan for years, but one Eagles fan called it “an impeachable offense.”
Former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell described Christie’s support of Dallas as “pathetic,” and “a basic inferiority complex.” “If you are a Jerseyite or a Pennsylvanian and you're rooting for the Cowboys, it means you're not secure in yourself and you wanted to root for a team in your youth that was a constant winner,” Rendell said in a radio interview last week, according to NJ.com.
