“It’s an amazing world” is the semi-diplomatic response Christie gave when asked by Jimmy Fallon if Palin could be president. You get the feeling that he thinks it would be ridiculous, but didn’t want to say it. I also chuckled at his explanation for why he didn’t want to be President: “why would I want a less powerful job than the one I have now?” Interesting point of view…
Still the real fun of this video is to watch him respond to Fallon for his joking dig at New Jersey. Some have said he was imitating Joe Pesci inGoodfellas, but I was reminded more of De Niro in Meet the Parents. The joke in Parents was how scary De Niro’s character was with his CIA background and DeNiro’s natural ability to communicate menace. And to Christie’s credit, he did a good job doing a similar thing.
Well, either that or we will find Jimmy Fallon’s body floating in the East River.
