So, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has been exonerated of any wrong doing in the matter of closing down bridge traffic lanes to flood Fort Lee, New Jersey with traffic. Why would anyone do such a thing? To punish the Mayor of Fort Lee for daring to back someone whose name wasn’t Chris Christie in the last election.

The Governor was cleared by an impeccable source. Himself. He says he didn’t do it. Well, to be fair, a lawyer he hired to say he didn’t do it, says he didn’t do it. So there you have it. The man is innocent.

I’d like to take this opportunity to apologize to Mr. Christie for thinking he was complicit in an ugly situation simply because all the evidence pointed to that being the truth.

Christie’s innocence has moved me to feel bad about how I look at a number of other people who all the evidence indicated were guilty. With that in mind, I also want to apologize to:

OJ Simpson – whose golf course based hunt for the killer of his ex-wife was put on hold because evidence caused him to be incarcerated for robbery.

Richard Nixon – whose time in office was cut short because pesky evidence made it look like he’d been involved in some skullduggery. He told us he wasn’t a crook. Why didn’t we believe him before it was too late?

Oscar Pistorius – While the famous South African paralympic athlete  is still currently a free man, that darned evidence makes him look like a murderer. He’s said he isn’t a murderer. Evidence is so silly.

But mostly, I want to apologize again to Governor Christie. I’m so glad that you hired someone to make it clear to me how wrong I was.
