Chris Christie does “Evolution of Dad Dancing”

Christie Causes Traffic Again: This time, it’s Internet traffic. A video of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie doing the “evolution of dad dancing” on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon is a popular one today, with Christie doing such moves as the “We Won the Game” and the “This Garbage Can Isn’t Too Full Yet, I Can Do It Tomorrow Morning.”

Iraq Breakdown Continues: As ISIS jihadists marched on Baghdad, President Barack Obama is weighing military intervention, saying on Thursday “I don’t rule out anything” as far as military action. Strangely, if the U.S. gets involved in the fight, it will fight alongside Iran, which has sent fighters to Baghdad to defend the city.

Bowe Bergdahl is Home: Bergdahl is back in the U.S., but not in Idaho. He’ll stay at a hospital in San Antonio, probably for months, as he undergoes physical and psychological rehabilitation. Bergdahl is still in the Army, and after his rehab, he might rejoin his unit in Alaska – though that’s unlikely.

Priests Shot in Phoenix: Police are clueless as to why someone walked into a church in downtown Phoenix on Wednesday and attacked two priests. The Rev. Kenneth Walker died, and the Rev. Joseph Terra was in the hospital, but it is unknown if he was also shot. News reports describe the Mother of Mercy Mission as being in a “gritty” part of downtown Phoenix.

O’Toole Will Get Easy Confirmation: Seattle Mayor Ed Murray’s pick for police chief, former Boston police commissioner Kathleen O’Toole, has locked up at least five City Council votes for confirmation after a committee approved her on Thursday. That’s really all the votes she needs to get confirmation from the full council when they vote on June 23.

Only One Guy Wants Cantor Job: All candidates except California U.S. Rep. Kevin McCarthy have backed out of a race to replace Virginia U.S. Rep. Eric Cantor to become House Majority Leader. On Tuesday, Cantor lost a primary to Tea Party candidate David Brat, and on Wednesday announced he would step down from the House leadership position by the end of July.
