Damn You Greedy Teachers

Some lavish lifestyles enjoyed by some government employees is enough to make you cringe:
Gov. Chris Christie arrived at his son's baseball game this afternoon aboard a State Police helicopter.

Right before the lineup cards were being exchanged on the field, a noise from above distracted the spectators as the 55-foot long helicopter buzzed over trees in left field, circled the outfield and landed in an adjacent football field. Christie disembarked from the helicopter and got into a black car with tinted windows that drove him about a 100 yards to the baseball field.

During the 5th inning, Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie got into the car, rode back to the helicopter and left the game. During a pitching change, play was stopped for a couple of minutes while the helicopter took off.
I understand that a governor might need to use a helicopter now and then but when you're telling teachers, firefighters and police officers that they're greedy leaches on the system... what an asshole.

    Ship of State anyone?

  5. @Kari, well you're close, because during the last congress I almost started a "Douche Caucus" ranking, for the centrist Dems and Republicans but I never got around to it.

    Maybe I'll do it this year, since there will always be douchebags in the senate to rank
