Chris Christie, you doth protest too much: After complaining once before that the Jersey Shore's band of rowdy guidos and guidettes were not actually New Jersey residents, he's harped on it once again. At a Lincoln Park, New Jersey, town hall meeting Christie complained that New York governor Andrew Cuomo should "take them back. We don't want them."

He then gave the audience a Snooki geography lesson. "Remember, Snooki is from Poughkeepsie and the Situation is from Staten Island. That's not New Jersey," Christie said. Also not New Jersey: Italy, where the entire rollicking cast will head next season. Buona sera, Italianos.
