lol your fat skinny

That's the image that accompanies a Wall Street Journal article positing that Obama may be "too fit to be president" because the Fatty McFattersons of America won't want to vote for him.
[I]n a nation in which 66% of the voting-age population is overweight and 32% is obese, could Sen. Obama's skinniness be a liability? Despite his visits to waffle houses, ice-cream parlors and greasy-spoon diners around the country, his slim physique just might have some Americans wondering whether he is truly like them.
I don't even know what to say, aside from mentioning the brain-breaking irony that Bill Clinton and Al Gore were, of course, regularly implied to be disgusting lard-buckets. I'm in agreement with Brad, who deems this pile of dogwank beyond fucking parody.

Oh, and in case you foolishly thought that this wasn't another opportunity to suggest that Clinton supporters: A) won't support Obama; and B) are fat old bitter slags, boy, were you wrong!
"He's too new ... and he needs to put some meat on his bones," says Diana Koenig, 42, a housewife in Corpus Christi, Texas, who says she voted for Sen. Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primary.

"I won't vote for any beanpole guy," another Clinton supporter wrote last week on a Yahoo politics message board.
For whatever it's worth, this fat bitch has never, even in passing, considered Obama's thinness a reason to not vote for him.

And…I can't believe I even had to write that sentence.
