Corzine mocks Christie's waistline. Will other fatso politicians weigh in?

In their increasingly nip-and-tuck race for Governor of New Jersey, incumbent Jon Corzine, running behind, has taken to thinly veiled mockery of his opponent, Chris Christie, for being, er, a bit on the tubby side. As you can see in the picture above, Christie does have a lot of weight to throw around. But what about all the other fatsos who have made it in politics without having to give up pizza and donuts or knock themselves out running, jogging, biking, or clearing brush? Will they leap (or at least step up) to Christie's defense?

For starters, this guy could chip in some heavyweight advice about wielding power -- and some tips on good cardiologists, too!

Barney Frank always has something to say.

John Murtha is one porker who knows how to deliver pork.

Chris Dodd is further living proof that Irish politicians can out-eat and out-drink all comers.

Then, there's Big Albert.

And the current Secretary of State for minor third-world countries may not pack heft in her portfolio, but......

Then, there is His Rotundness himself, New York's Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who makes Christie look like a marathon runner.

Got any favorite fatso politicians? Post a comment with a link.


  1. What about Teddy Kennedy? He got to be the size of a whale before he died.

  2. Hey, Congressman Nadler has *lost* weight - he used to look like a pink Jabba the Hutt.

    Are you restricting this to only living politicians? Tip O' Neill was pretty huge...

    And are people who have to use scooters off limits, 'cause I think Robert Byrd is pretty, um, substantial.
