Christie's Bridge to Nowhere

Jonathan Chait: "To this point, Chris Christie has treated the George Washington Bridge closure story as a joke, and national reporters have regarded it as a minor irritation. The public release of e-mails among his staff changes all that. The e-mails prove that Christie's loyalists closed the bridge deliberately as political retribution, not as a 'traffic study' as claimed. They display an almost comical venality bordering on outright sociopathy. And they will probably destroy Christie's chances in 2016."

Chris Cillizza: "Molehills can grow into mountains in politics. This is now a serious problem for Christie."
