Surviving A Two-Hour Press Conference

Nobody was buying the bullshit on display at Governor Christie's marathon press conference yesterday-- but thankfully, reporters (hilariously) passed the time on Twitter.  A small selection:

Mike Murphy: (@murphymike): I am chuckling at CC's implication that he may now lose his great faith in delegating and be cruelly forced to micromanage a bit...

Molly Ball (@mollyesque): As a reporter, I love Chris Christie. Unlike every other politician, he keeps saying different things the longer he talks.

Just Karl (@justkarl): If only Christie had actually driven a woman off the bridge, he'd be a hero to Democrats.

Jim Geraghty (@jimgeraghty): Let me be clear: I hired a bunch of callous vindictive psychopaths who never tell me anything.

Charles CW Cooke (@charlescwcooke) At least Christie hasn't ended his political career by doing something as inordinately stupid as drinking water during a televised speech.

Matt Yglesias (@mattyglesias): Time for someone at the NSA to leak all their info on this and unify our scandals.

Will Bunch (@will_bunch): "I am sad because I was betrayed" #RejectedGodfatherLines

Ann Coulter (@anncoulter): This is the longest press conference since Mark Sanford announced he was in love!

Erick Erickson (@ewerickson): How long until someone puts up one of those Hitler parodies of Christie finding out about the bridge?

David Corn (@davidcorndc): Christie releases statement: "The highway was jammed with broken heroes on a last chance power drive."

Roger Simon (@politicoroger): The Christie press conference may be the first one where they call a commercial time out.

David Weigel (@daveweigel): Did Christie accidentally fire the staffer who tells him when to end a press conference?

Josh Barro (@jbarro): Wait this press conference is ending? I had so many more questions.
