The Chris Christie show

NJ governor's act gets dull and duller

The Chris Christie show

Chris Christie's latest YouTube moment finds the fading superstar of video vaudeville playing to the cheap seats yet again.

The governor's act, while ever louder, is also ever more tired/tireseome.

So much so that Dullsville may well be his next stop on the circuit.

After campaigning so memorably (and effectively) in 2009 against New Jersey's bipartisan budget-balancing tradition of "one-shot gimmicks," Christie is now juggling more of the same, simultaneously spinning tax-cut plates, and belligerently attacking anyone in the audience who dares question his magical math.

Once boffo box office, his show has soured into boorishness.

Get the hook!
