The White House operatives - slim, willowy men with a problem with ladies - also put out ads that targetted Christie’s weight. This, in a state that delights in oodles of pasta and pizza, Viennese tables, and all-you-can-eat family-style Chinese restaurants. When finally perturbed reporters asked Corzine about this obsession, he brilliantly replied: “Well, I’m bald. They can attack me for that.” Christie ignored this political advice and went on to win.
Yup-—elections can turn on little things like that.
Christie’s putdown on the weight issue was great-—told Corzine to “man-up”....stop w/ the corny stuff-—and just say he was “fat.”
