In addition to being New Jersey’s brash, outspoken governor and lover of ice cream, Chris Christie is a noted Bruce Springsteen enthusiast. I’d bet good money he’s spent a few hundred hours posting away on Backstreets and downloading bootlegs on the taxypayers’ dime. In fact, he recently took some time out of his schedule to curate a list of his 10 favorite Springsteen songs for Esquire. He’s got some great picks on there — specifically, “Prove It All Night”, “Kitty’s Back”, and “Because the Night” — but no “Jungleland”? That should be enough to disqualify him from any future Presidential ambitions.
