How do we know when the show's over, anyway?

EDITED: I forgot the link!

Michael Kinsley can kiss my ass.

Seriously. Chris Christie can't be President because he's fat? Really?

If Christie becomes the Republican nominee for President next year, I won't vote for him. But that will be because of the insane beliefs of the Republican party, not because of the girth of its nominee. That's it. For me, it's ideas and policy, not anything else.

To make it easy, here is a list of qualities that make zero difference in my weighing a person for their Presidential potential:

Fat
Thin
Black
White
Asian
Male
Female
Married
Single
Has kids
Has no kids
Gay
Straight
Catholic
Protestant
Jewish
Muslim
Confucian
Atheist
Mormon
Likes broccoli
Hates broccoli
Likes the Star Wars prequels
Hates the Star Wars prequels
Roots for the Bills
Roots for the Dolphins
Served in the military
Did not serve in the military
Worked in the private sector
Didn't work in the private sector
Has executive government experience
Has no executive government experience
Likes baseball
Likes football
Likes soccer
Likes dogs
Likes cats
Likes chinchillas

I could go on. In truth, I've never been a big fan of Michael Kinsley, and this certainly does not enhance my view of him. What a dumb-assed article. I hope Kinsley meant it as a joke, because if he didn't....

Even if he or she hates the Star Wars prequels? You MUST be a liberal!
