New Jersey - (Ass Mess): Governor Jon Corzine warned George Bush today about his reckless disregard for seatbelt laws and reminded him that his own folly last month cost him broken arms, legs, ribs and a massively bruised ego after failing to adhere to the 'click-it or thicket' belt-up campaign.

"He knows we can always activate the tagging device around his ankle that registers alcohol usage. A possible tirade from Laura's usually enough to keep him docile."
