New Jersey governor Chris Christie's weight has been the topic of several op-eds recently, all asking whether Christie is "too fat" to run for president. These stories have apparently touched a raw nerve with many on the right, who are claiming that it is "unfair" to bring up a candidate's weight. It is nothing but hypocritical for the right to have made fun of candidates' looks for YEARS, ignoring politics in favor of these cheap jabs, only to become angry when a VALID question about a candidate's weight is raised. Some of the insults lobbed at Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Ruth Bader Ginsberg and Michelle Obama have included weight jabs, insults about their age lines, the size of their nose, their ankles, etc. Nancy Pelosi's haircut or age doesn't stop her from doing her job. Hillary's ankles don't get in the way of her carrying out her duties. Michelle Obama's looks and weight have no bearing on anything at all, since she is not an elected politician. Ms. Ginsburg's nose does not hinder her from dispensing justice (not to mention the fact that this type of attack borders on anti-semitism.) On the contrary, Christie's weight may be a real hindrance in carrying out the duties of the stressful office he may now be seeking.
