Time magazine features our newly re-elected Governor Chris Christie on the latest cover, but some are calling it offensive.

The cover features a darkened profile shot of Christie, mouth open, with the caption 'The Elephant in the Room - How Chris Christie Can win Over the G.O.P.'


Now, I know the elephant is the Republican party symbol...but...it also seems to be a clear dig at the Gov's weight.

I'm not so much offended by it, it's more that I just think it's annoying.

It's no real secret that I'm a fan of his, but even knowing that there are many who dislike him, he still seems like a political force to be reckoned with either way.

More importantly, when it comes to politics, it would be nice if everyone could stick to legitimate facts and issues, and stop with immature name-calling. Are fat jokes really necessary? Does that help anyone accomplish anything?

Yes, Chris Christie is fat. He knows it. I know it. We all know it. And we should all recognize that it has nothing to do with his ability (or dis-ability, depending on your stance) to run our state or maybe one day, the country.

Can we move on now, please?
