Fallon, Springsteen rip Christie

Late-night host Jimmy Fallon and rock icon Bruce Springsteen took to the stage Tuesday night to mock New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's (R) ongoing bridge scandal.

The duo parodied Springsteen's "Born to Run" on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" to poke fun at Christie for September's George Washington Bridge lane closures, which have been a political headache for the governor for more than a week.

Dressed in sleeveless denim shirts and red bandanas, Fallon and Springsteen growled and crooned to a cheering audience, "In the day we sweated out on the streets, stuck in traffic on the GWB. // They shut down the tollbooths of glory ’cuz we didn’t endorse Christie. // “Maybe this Bridgegate was just payback, it was a b——slap to the state Democrats. // We got to get out while we can. // We’re stuck in Gov. Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, N.J., traffic jam."

The Boss continued to rib Christie over the next verse, "Governor let me in, I want to be your friend, there’ll be no partisan divisions. // Let me wrap your legs ’round your mighty ribs, relieve your stressful condition,” he sang.

“Man I really gotta take a leak, but I can’t // I’m stuck in Gov. Chris Christie’s Fort Lee, N.J., traffic jam."
