It's OK, He's a Liberal
But the fact that he is obese is no reason for this kind of cartoon. How does this spark a thought process, other than cruel slapstick? How does this advance a political position? Danziger just shows me how small minded he really is here by going all in on the cheap shot. I am surely inspired to greater political thought by this cartoon. Not.
I thought being a liberal meant being tolerant and understanding, and defending people with physical differences. I'm just a knuckle dragging conservative, so I'll talk about someone being on the short bus or similar, but were I a liberal, as the narrative goes, I'd have to shut my mouth. No gay jokes, fat jokes, Obama's big ear jokes, or whatever.
But since Christie is self identified as a "R" he is fair game for a liberal editorial cartoonist, just because. I suspect I should just shut up and deal with it, because it's really not hypocrisy when it's a liberal doing it.
