Husband’s lament: Chris Christie is chunky and Corzine’s ugly

We just got this rather interesting letter about the gubernatorial election:
The Folly of Playing the Weight Card
Every time my wife sees Chris Christie in a Corzine commercial, she tells ME to lose weight. Corzine should worry about a Chubby Hubby voter backlash. The upcoming election is neither a beauty contest nor a driving competition, and both candidates would fail at either event.
Christie is chunky, but the balding, bespectacled Corzine looks like the dour, pitch-fork-wielding farmer in Grant Wood’s painting, American Gothic.
Christie apparently forgets to register his car and can’t read street signs. Corzine only recently learned to operate a seat belt.
Both Corzine’s and Christie’s commercials demonstrate complete ignorance of what New Jerseyans want in these lean times: (1)some stout-hearted men and women who will let us have our cake and eat it too; and (2) a law that prohibits any Governor from operating or riding in a motor vehicle during his term in office.
