Back in 2012 Jeffrey Golberg went to a Bruce Springsteen concert with Chris Christie and reported on the Governor's pathetic whining.

Despite heroic efforts by Christie, Springsteen, who is still a New Jersey resident, will not talk to him. They've met twice - €”once on an airplane in 1999, and then at the 2010 ceremony inducting Danny DeVito into the New Jersey Hall of Fame, where they exchanged only formal pleasantries. (Christie does say that Springsteen was very kind to his children.) At concerts, even concerts in club-size venues like €”the Stone Pony, in Asbury Park, Springsteen won'€™t acknowledge the governor. When Christie leaves a Springsteen concert in a large arena, his state troopers move him to his motorcade through loading docks. He walks within feet of the stage, and of the dressing rooms. he'€™s never been invited to say hello. On occasion, he'€™ll make a public plea to Springsteen, as he did earlier this spring, when Christie asked him to play at a new casino in Atlantic City. "€œHe says he'€™s for the revitalization of the Jersey Shore, so this seems obvious," Christie told me. I asked him if he's received a response to his request. "No, we got nothing back from them,"€ he said unhappily, "€œnot even a '€˜Fuck you.'"€
Well, The Boss went on Jimmy Fallon's show last night and gave the Governer the "Fuck you" he's been longing for.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
