I Will Crush My Opponents

Our guest colloquists are Baba Wawa and a comically overweight governor.

Walters: There are people who say that you couldn’t be president because you’re so heavy. What do you say to that?

Christie: That’s ridiculous, I mean, that’s ridiculous. I mean I don’t know what the basis for that is.

Walters: I think they’re worried about your health.

Christie: Well, I’ve done this job pretty well and I think people watched me for the last couple weeks and during Hurricane Sandy doing 18-hour days and getting right back up the next day and still being just as effective so I don’t really think that would be a problem.

Please note that while The Management is not above Inappropriate Shits & Giggles over Body Issues, The Management also thinks that Waddles was by far the most effective speaker at the Republican Convention. Mock him at your risk.

Barbara Walters Asks Chris Christie If He’s Too Fat To Be President [BuzzFeed, via Political Wire]

“Your governor’s so fat, when he sits around the house, he sits around the house!”

Am I on to something here, nojo?

It’s a double-wide trailer. Hi di ho. Yes, he is a good speaker, but does he not have a reputation as a union-hating mean fuck?

@mellbell: Dodger wins!

@Dodgerblue: Oh, he’s an asshole, all right. But he’s not like the other assholes, who can easily be dismissed as preaching to the Wingnut Choir. He’s able to sound reasonable, which is what makes him dangerous.

@nojo: Also, he was smart enough not to want to be on the ticket with Mitts.

The president cannot be fat or bald. To be either demonstrates human frailty which is not acceptable. Unlike stupidity or ignorance.

He’s very smart and very dangerous. We can only hope that the US hasn’t reach the tipping point with morbid obesity where the average reaction moves from revulsion to “hey, he’s just like me!”
Luckily, we’re pretty shallow. We haven’t had a really unattractive president since Carter, and even he was thin.

@Mistress Cynica: Jimmy? The hair! The teeth!

The last elected Ugly Preznident was Nixon.

@nojo: The hair and especially the teeth were part of the problem. Bless his heart.

@Mistress Cynica: I vaguely recall Pat Oliphant drawing him as a sunflower.

It’s a lot like running Honey Boo Boo for president – fat is so far down the list of problems it isn’t even relevant.
