It’s Groundhog Day, again in Trenton. And this year is no different as the news media eagerly awaited whether Governor Chris Christie would see his shadow, as he emerged from the State House.
“This is a very exciting time of year. The Occupy Trenton folks have made it through a cold winter. The State Street lobbyists are in full bloom,”‘observed Jeff Tittel, Executive Director or the Sierra Club. “It is a very clear day right now, and we should be able to see the Governor emerging from his meetings very soon.”
Then the special announcement came, as Christie appeared on State Street, after an early morning meeting with his cabinet.
“At 8:45am, on February 2nd, 2012, Governor Christie emerged from the gold-domed Capitol building on State Street. And the Governor did see his shadow, and we will have six more weeks of his yelling at public employees.”
The governor did get started early this year, by calling Assemblyman Reed Gusciora “numbnuts”. “From the governor’s early activity, we should have been able to predict the results for the next six weeks,” added Tittel.
