New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie showed a classroom of children today just who’s in charge in the Garden State. It’s not quite helping a cat down from the roof, but Newark Mayor Cory Booker can’t be everywhere. Besides, Booker probably would have captured the spider alive and found it a new home.

We don’t imagine Christie spends a lot of time worrying about what PETA thinks of him.

Update via Jeryl Bier:

Christie may not care what PETA thinks, but that doesn’t mean the group won’t go ahead and weigh in on his “thoughtless act.”
