An amusing spook lifted somewhat from Seinfeld, with Governor Christie lamenting Cory Booker heroics with a Newman-esque “Booker!” whenever Booker looks good. This was presented at the New Jersey Press Association Legislative Correspondents Club Show.
The web video plays off of Democratic Newark Mayor Cory Booker, who is a vocal supporter of President Obama, and his recent displays of heroism, and features him swooping in to save the day while Christie stands idly by — from providing Bruce Springsteen with a guitar when his goes missing to fixing a flat tire for Christie, who curses Booker’s heroic antics each time, gritting his teeth as he says “Booker…”
But things turn brighter for Christie at the end of the video when Booker pretends to field a call from Mitt Romney asking him to consider a spot on his ticket. The Newark mayor tries to turn down the offer and Christie quickly intervenes.
“Governor, Governor Romney, yes, yes, that was me running into the fire. Yes, I do shovel snow as well. Yes, you’re very persuasive. But I’m not a number two guy. I’m not background singer. Mitt, sir, with all due respect, I know you need a big…” Booker says on the phone to Romney.
“Excuse me mayor,” Christie says. “I got this.”
“Christie…” Booker says.
Naturally, some viewers on YouTube are incapable of seeing the humor:
Can’t wait for this fat useless fuck to keel over.
