Listen up, all you fat people: you are unqualified to be president. No, I don’t care what your resume says.

September 30, 2011

It’s not me saying it. It’s Michael Kinsley:

Look, I’m sorry, but New Jersey Governor Chris Christie cannot be president: He is just too fat.

And Eugene Robinson:

Christie’s problem with weight ceased being a private matter when he stepped into the public arena — and it’s not something you can fail to notice.

And President Obama himself:

In an interview this evening with a local NBC affiliate in Orlando, President Obama claimed that America has “gotten a little soft.”

Oh, Obama wasn’t talking about Christie? Oh. Sorry. But theres still

Well Joel Siegel:

Nor is Christie just “slightly overweight.” So there is no delicate way to ask this: Is Chris Christie too fat to win?

So. See? Fat people need not apply.

But please vote for our side anyway, because, y’know, we really care about what you think. Donut?
