NJ Pol Calls Out Opponent For Lardassedness


Desperate New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine has finally played the "fat" card in his re-election campaign, running an ad that accuses tubby challenger Chris Christie of "throwing his weight around." I'm not sure how Christie can respond in kind to this one; there's no subtle phrase that one can use to suggest that one's opponent "looks like a Jew."

Christie could always retort with an attack on Corzine's unfortunate hairline…

How 'bout: "Corzine was one of those 'blood-sucking squidmonsters' at Goldman Sachs."

Fasten your seatbelt, Governor Corzine.

TOO SOON. (Not.)

You'd think anything driving-related would be avoided by Corzine, but OK!

I am appalled that we've reached a point in this country where people just assume that the act of insinuating your opponent is a money-grubbing Elder of Zion has any sort of racist component. It is obviously about the SUBSTANCE of the ISSUES.

I never knew who Christie was until suddenly he had a 20 point lead in the race and Corzine was written off for dead. I saw footage of Christie and thought "Isn't he too fat to get elected?" I think I even posted that here. Henry Hyde, Newt Gingrich and other safe district politicians (plus losers who inherit a political office like Mike Huckabee) can be lardasses, but if you're trying to win an election in the Northeast, I think you have to be within the zone of acceptable BMI. And Christie just looks like Charlie Weiss out there (kind of ridiculous).

I'm guessing the NJ Dems couldn't clear the rights to use clips from Goodfellas. Still, they're missing every chance they get to call him Johnny Roastbeef.

Christie's a bigg'un. They carted him around my home town's Labor Day Parade in the bed of a pickup–no lie. Corzine, on the other hand, sweated it out and walked the parade.
