The criticism against Gov. Jon Corzine suggesting the portly candidate Chris Christie is fat seems a little misplaced, when you consider the wacky shots at Obama. Remember:
According to Fox News & WSJ: Forget arrogance, Barack Obama is just too skinny to be president. The Wall Street Journal reported that the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee may be turning off voters by refusing to chow down at every pit stop on the campaign trail. The newspaper notes that 66 percent of the voting-age population is overweight — while 32 percent fits the definition of obese — and that could be hurting Obama. “He’s too new … and he needs to put some meat on his bones,” Diana Koenig, 42, a housewife in Corpus Christi, Texas. "I won't vote for any beanpole guy," another Clinton supporter wrote last week on a Yahoo politics message board.
McCain’s campaign has already used the senator’s healthy livingagainst him, linking his “celebrity” to his diet. “Only celebrities like Barack Obama go to the gym three times a day, demand ‘MET-RX chocolate broasted-peanut protein bars and bottles of a hard-to-find organic brew — Black Forest Berry Honest Tea’ and worry about the price of arugula.” McCain campaign manager Rick Davis wrote.
