    Best spin of the year. Chris Christie beat Jon Corzine because of his size. Cracks me up.

    Actually there might be something to this, although I doubt it's decided any elections. Don't we tend to have an image of the jolly fat Santa, as opposed to the skinny Grinch?

    I'd say if anything, the attitude displayed by "highlighting" Christie's size would have put off a lot of voters who love their doughnuts.

    Yes, the personal attacks backfired. But the people of NJ would have elected ANYONE but Corzine.

    I don't know. Maybe the prez should start packing on the pounds. People are losing trust. lol

    Don't know how they screwed that study up so bad. Check out the poll on the same page as the article and it's 60% no, size doesn't matter to 29%, yes it does.

    I think it's a crock.

    I felt the same way. Kinda like the study "all men watch porn" which interviewed 20 college kids. :lol:
