Why Gov. Christie’s heft is a plus (no pun intended)…

Christie’s girth has “baked-in” benefit

“In Christie’s case, there is a sort of “everyman” quality that we subliminally associate with hefty guys. From Chris Farley to Kevin James to Jonah Hill, we often find fat fellas to be funny, likeable, non-threatening — and probably more trustworthy. Christie’s girth hurts him in many ways — but it also has this baked-in benefit.” — Just one of a few play on words in a column by Matt Lewis for The Week on why Gov. Chris Christie’s waistline will be a large problem for him should he run for Prez in 2016. Read the story here.
