Here’s the punch line

Dear Editor:
Here’s what Chris Christie said: “I, Chris Christie, elected Governor of the State of New Jersey, do solemnly promise and swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of New Jersey and that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same and to the governments established in the United States and in this State under the authority of the people [and that] I will diligently, faithfully, impartially, justly, and to the best of my knowledge and ability execute the said office in conformity with the powers delegated to me and that I will to the utmost of my skill and ability promote the peace and prosperity and maintain the lawful rights of the said State, so help me God.”
Here’s what it means: Nothing.
