After his term as Governor of New Jersey is over, it would be fun to see Chris Christie on the Let’s Make a Deal. I see it going like this:
Wayne Brady: Governor, you can have the $261 million dollars, or you can have 20% of what’s behind Curtain #3!
Chris Christie: That’s a real New Jersey Comebackl!
Wayne Brady: Are you sure? Everyone else turned the deal down.
Chris Christie: I’ll make the deal!
Wayne Brady: Sorry, you’ve gotten 20% of nothing. I wonder what else you could have done with $261 million dollars.
It would be funny, if that wasn’t the actual deal Chris Christie negotiated with the Revel Casino, 20% of future profits in exchange for $261 million now. Analysts expect Revel to declare bankruptcy soon, leaving New Jersey with 20% of nothing:
The $17.5 million that Revel generated from its slot machines and table games was just a tad better than the $14.9 million it made in June – but still significantly below the $25 million to $30 million that Wall Street projected it needs to stay solvent and pay its bonds.
The next episode will feature Xanadu.
