CNN's Piers Morgan: Does Chris Christie have any skeletons in his closet?

Last night, CNN's Piers Morgan interviewed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, briefly mentioning the Anthony Weiner scandals and asking the Governor if he had any skeletons in the closet.

“Part of the thing of being a Catholic is you confess the sins. Obviously in light of Weiner-gate, Schwarzenegger-gate, and so on, is there anything you want to get off your chest?” Morgan asked.

Christie responded, “You know, listen, any confessions I need to make, I'll make to my wife and to my priest, not on CNN to you, pal.”

Other highlights:

When asked whether he would take a heliocopter to his son's baseball game again, Christie said, “I probably would. But I'd pay for it.”

Favorite Bruce Springsteen song: “Thunder Road.”

On Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook: “I believe in the power of the individual to create great wealth and great opportunity in this country. I look at somebody like Mark Zuckerberg, who I've gotten to know over time here in New Jersey, who, you know, from his dorm room at Harvard has created a worldwide phenomenon. Only in America could that happen.”
