New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie apologized, fired those responsible, held a nearly two-hour news conference to answer reporters' questions and even traveled to Fort Lee to personally apologize to the mayor for tying up traffic on the George Washington Bridge in September with a "traffic study" later revealed to be an apparent act of political retaliation.

So why won't the scandal go away? You can blame Bruce Springsteen.

I'm not sure which is worse for Christie: Becoming a late-night punchline or having his favorite musician be the one to do it.
