I wonder when Christie will have a heart attack.  There is a reason you don't see lots of fat politicians.  Look how grey any president is after a few years as president, imagine the stress.  A fat person in that position is doomed.

Call it a character flaw, but I have a hard time taking any morbidly obese fatass seriously.

Christie said Mariano had no right to comment unless she examined him and knew his health history.

Translation:  "It's glandular!"

Actually one of those really only became fat after he was no longer a politician.

And the other guy was a lifer who was able to naturally "grow" into his role.  I suspect would would have seen health issues from Teddy if he ever occupied the big chair though.  Lot more stress as a president than as a long time Sentator in one of the safest seats in the nation.

I have no love for Fat Boy, but he's right...

Does obesity cause a number of conditions and diseases that can cause death? Yes. I'm sure Christie and his actual Doctor are well aware of that.

But a Doctor thousands of miles away, who has never examined Christie, saying he's going to die in office in an interview is irresponsible and most likely just looking for a little attention.

So people don't know that Taft was so fat he got stuck in the WH bathtub?  That Grover Cleveland's nickname was "Big Steve"?

We've had some mighty fat dudes in office

Let me know when Christie shows up for an interview like this:

Or when a news show tours the governor's mansion and shows his bathtub.

No argument there... The guy's a blowhard and seems to enjoy engaging in a bit of bullying himself.

"Human calzone" is a novel and amusing insult to me.
 
2013-02-07 09:50:58 AM
I think a doctor who has never examined someone saying they may die in office is a bit much, but there is some truth in what she's saying. Maybe she should have said "the presidency takes a toll on anyone's health and obesity can lead to all sorts of health problems." To come right out and say he might die in office seems a step too far. On the other hand, Christie should have said something like "A doctor making claims about someone's health when they have never examined that person is clearly irresponsible. This is a non-issue. Next question." To blow up about it only ensures the media will be talking about it for the next week. Much like posting a picture of a cheap skate's receipt at Applebees, everyone comes out looking silly in this one

Is a calzone the one with the sauce on the inside or is that a stromboli? Does it have to have ricotta? I mean, what's the difference?

Does this mean we can shut up about the 2000 election, then?

The reason there are fewer fat politicians than one might expect is that politics is a rich man's game...and there are fewer fat rich people than in the general population, too.

There's still lots of fat guys making it to or near the top. Off the top of my head:

Bill Clinton
Tip O'Neill
Newt Gingrich
Charlie Rangel
Mike Huckabee
Haley Barbour

Women in politics have it worse, though. When Hillary took the Secretary of State job and her senate seat became available, there were actually people who muttered that Kirsten Gillibrand's weight was going to be a problem. I mean, just look at those disgusting cottage cheese knees.

Calzone has sauce inside, stromboli has no sauce. otherwise they are the same thing

I believe a calzone is an actual Italian dish made with round dough folded in half while a stomboli is an American bastardization made with square dough rolled into a log.

I could be wrong but I don't really care. I enjoy stuffing my mouth hole with either one.

The cognitive dissonance there is especially weird, since what has got them all riled up about Michelle in the first place is that she's trying to make kids eat healthier, exercise more, and weigh less. "MY KID HAS A RIGHT TO BE A FATASS, YOU... UH, FATASS."
 
2013-02-07 09:59:02 AM
isn't there a pill that can fix this? I mean, I've tried everything except diet and exercise and nothing seems to work.

calzone has the sauce built in, and nothing has to have ricotta except a cannoli.

Hey, if republicans want to start liquefying turduckens and injecting them directly into their veins to stick it to the gub'mint, fine by me. But Christie could use a little bit of restrain and discipline in his personal life. It will only help his political one. This dude was skinny when he was young; he's just let himself go, and that's not an endearing quality for someone aiming for the White House.
 
2013-02-07 10:03:27 AM
Guy is 50 years old. Tubby or not, him dying in office is a statistical anomaly.

Was that doctor ever as worried about all the comparatively ancient old guys that keeps running for president? McCain, Biden, Kerry, Gingrich (fat AND old, a twofer!)...

2013-02-07 10:15:02 AM
the guy is obviously morbidly obese...that's a problem you can't help but notice.

when it comes down to it, Christie has made a choice that having a good diet and getting daily exercise is less desirable than walking around with all that extra weight every day of his life.

that's just a piss poor life decision...sure people make bad choices all the time, his is just impossible to miss and that's going to be an issue if you want to stand on the national stage, it just is, get used to it.


/that said, maybe this doctor would have been wise to withhold this speculation.

I think the important thing here is that you found an example in this non-story of why you're oppressed.
 
2013-02-07 10:33:24 AM
It's wildly unprofessional for a doctor to make comments about a person they've never examined.  So, yeah, she should probably can it.
