Abandoning Hope For Post-It Notes On The Fridge, Michael Kinsley Now Sending Coded Messages To His Tubby Wife In The Newspapers

Look, I’m sorry, but New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie cannot be president: He is just too fat. Maybe, if he runs for president and we get to know him, we will overlook this awkward issue because we are so impressed with the way he stands up to teachers’ unions. But we shouldn’t overlook it — unless he goes on a diet and shows he can stick to it. That’s not a very liberal attitude. It’s discriminatory. It’s patronizing. It’s coercive. What business is it of ours whether Christie weighs too much (and who gets to define “too much”)? Why should we even care, as long as we like his policies? These points will all be made by political commentators if word goes out to the vast right-wing conspiracy that it’s time to get behind Christie. Let me save you the trouble, boys and girls. I can write that column myself: “Liberals, who embrace diversity of all other kinds — who demand quotas for transgender kindergarten teachers in public schools — these selfsame liberals have the unmitigated gall to encourage discrimination against a truly oppressed group: people of weight.” (BangorDailyNews)
