Corzine goes for fat jokes in gubernatorial campaign

posted at 12:15 pm on October 8, 2009 by Ed Morrissey

Maybe Jon Corzine can get Chris Rock to start managing his ad campaign in his desperate attempt to cling to office.  At least Rock would tell fat jokes with more humor than New Jersey’s governor, who decided to take a decidedly playground approach to criticizing his Republican opponent, Chris Christie.  Even the New York Times criticizes Corzine for his tactics:

It is about as subtle as a playground taunt: a television ad for Gov. Jon S. Corzine shows his challenger, Christopher J. Christie, stepping out of an S.U.V. in extreme slow motion, his extra girth moving, just as slowly, in several different directions at once.

In case viewers missed the point, a narrator snidely intones that Mr. Christie “threw his weight around” to avoid getting traffic tickets.

In the ugly New Jersey contest for governor, Mr. Corzine and Mr. Christie have traded all sorts of shots, over mothers and mammograms, loans and lying. But now, Mr. Corzine’s campaign is calling attention to his rival’s corpulence in increasingly overt ways.

Excuse me, but Jon Corzine hardly has the standing to allege preferential treatment when it comes to driving behavior.  Two and a half years ago, Corzine had state troopers drive him to a meeting with Don Imus at speeds exceeding 90 MPH.  Inevitably, the troopers crashed, underscoring the threat to public safety such travel creates.  Corzine could have killed other drivers on that road, the state troopers, or himself.

Oh, and let’s not forget that Corzine wasn’t bright enough to fasten his seatbelt during Mr. Governor’s Wild Ride.

But back to the fat jokes.  Corzine’s head is so fat … well, let’s not go there.

This has the definite whiff of desperation, which is odd, because public polls show Corzine climbing back into a statistical dead heat with Christie, who has not exactly set the world afire in the Garden State.  Monmouth University pollsters say that their surveys showed that people have a strong association between Christie and his weight.  Monmouth believes that Corzine’s campaign saw the data and decided to capitalize on the connection.

That’s the kind of decision-making one sees in playground bullies, but preferably not in public officials.  Jim Geraghty wonders when the “your momma” jokes will start.  Maybe Christie will take the Gene Hackman role in Heist in playing the dozens with Corzine:

Update: Jim says not to forget Corzine’s jokes about Italians and Jews.  It’s like a Dean Martin roast, only much less funny.

Daggett wouldn’t even call Corzine “corrupt”, it was pathetic.

I’m not sure that attack is a good idea. If we are to believe all the nay-sayers in this nanny state, most of us are obese. Corzine, then is insulting a large, pardon the pun, majority of us ordinary citizens.

His numbers seemed a little high to me last week. Hope Hewitt’s dismantling has an effect, along with Corzine’s fat-focused stupidity.

misslizzi on October 8, 2009 at 12:30 PM

Just because someone is fat doesn’t really mean anything.

Many “skinny” people have higher BP and cholesterol problems as a “fat” person.

Some people seriously need to focus on the person’s worth, not their girth.

Corzine is throwing everything at the wall to see if anything sticks. So far, the Christie = Bush attack has failed, the Christie Wants To Take Away Your Mammogram attack has failed, the Christie’s Brother Might Have Done Something Bad attack has failed, the Christie’s Aunt By Marriage Might Have Had A Relative In The Mob attack has failed. So by all means, let’s try the Christie Is Fat attack.

CORZINE = FAIL

If this state elects this man again, it’s going to force us to seriously consider selling and moving out of here. I can’t believe the people in my own state are so GD stupid. Excuse me, but I’ve seen enough of NJ dirty politics and the me, me, me, my entire life and I won’t take it any longer.

Corzine is a completely useless governor. I honestly cant think of one thing he has done, but he’s a dem.

Christie has a chance, but he needs to start hitting back hard…

Corzine is no Mr. Universe, so he really shouldn’t go there. Christie is doing a bad job of convincing NJ voters to vote for him–this should be a run away election. I’m not totally thrilled with Christie, but we need Corzine out of there.

PappyD61 on October 8, 2009 at 12:54 PM

Some recent study, as I recall, said that about 60% of all Americans are overweight and, based on my own anecdotal observations from numerous trips to NJ over the years, that number could be low.

In a close race like this one, alienating the fat vote could well prove counter-productive.

What the hell is Mr. Goldman Sachs thinking?

TXUS on October 8, 2009 at 12:54 PM

Corzine has lost some weight recently. However, he use to be quite the chubmeister himself.

Blake on October 8, 2009 at 12:56 PM

Corzine married his high school sweetheart who stuck with him through thick and thin, and who he dumped after 33 years of marriage so he could openly chase lobbiest nookie.

This election will be rigged. NJ is possibly an even greater political cesspool than Massachusetts.

If New Jersey reelects Corzine after the job he’s done as governor and the trashy, desperate campaign he’s run, the state deserves to collapse into bankruptcy.

Wow, I better get going. I married my high school sweetheart and we will have 36 years in next week. What was I thinking NOT dumping her.

Jeff from WI on October 8, 2009 at 1:14 PM

I guess their internal polls are worse than the public polls. Corzine has only led in one recent poll, although the race has tightened up. If New Jersey votes for Corzine, they deserve to be smited.

SouthernGent on October 8, 2009 at 1:17 PM

Mr. Corzine had made offensive remarks twice, the first time at an Italian restaurant in Newark several months ago, ”where Mr. Corzine was courting the support of six prominent Italian-Americans.”

Um… I’m about as Italian-American as it gets… why would I care what 6 other IA’s happen to think? Further, what makes them “prominent?”

Pelosi, Ferraro and Cuomo are 3 “prominent” IA’s and I don’t care what they think about the weather let alone public policy.

Now, Alyssa Milano? I’m VERY interested in her thoughts.

mankai on October 8, 2009 at 1:17 PM

Christie should do commercials standing next to Meghan Mc Cain to down play his weight.

Jeff from WI on October 8, 2009 at 1:19 PM

I think Pelosi needs to have a talk with Corzine about raising the tone of rhetoric on issues in NJ. Instead of implying he’s too fat, she should suggest that Corzine call him a Fat Nazi

smartsy on October 8, 2009 at 1:20 PM

That’s the kind of decision-making one sees in playground bullies

Isn’t that what politics in America is these days? A playground for bullies? Serious discussion and civil debate seem to get far less attention from the public than name-calling and bullying do. And as long as the public is buying this immature behavior, that’s what politicians will be selling.

Loxodonta on October 8, 2009 at 1:21 PM

I get the bad feeling that Corzine will be re-elected, even though the economy is in shambles there and he’s apparently a childish jerk. Seriously, where did this guy get his campaign strategies? Terry McCauliffe? Paul Begala? I’ll go with Paul Begala. He loves personal attacks.

Move over here to Bucks County, PA. We need a few more conservatives to help kick out our moron Congresscritter. You can commute almost anywhere in Jersey from here (my husband works in Trenton and it looks like I might be taking a job soon in Bridgewater or Bloomfield.) I’m telling everyone I know in Jersey to move over here. Taxes are lower and we still have a functioning Republican Party in Pennsylvania. Plus you’ll get to vote against Arlen Specter next year!

NathanG on October 8, 2009 at 1:29 PM

The White House. Seriously. That’s why he started his campaign with lame ads showing him and Obama together, and then using some bad Photoshops trying to put Christie together with George Bush. Those didn’t work, so they hve gotten nastier.

For those complaining that Christie hasn’t hit back hard enough, Corzine is outspending him 3-1. Christie doesn’t have millions of his own money to spend throwing sh– at the wall to see what sticks. It’s a testament to how far behind Corzine is that he still can’t pull ahead in this race after spending $16 million attacking Christie.

Christie will barely win, if Rasmussen Reports has it right. Christie is only THREE points ahead of Corzine. Pitiful. The Democrats in New Jersey can have him. What a joke. Even Republican Alaska kicked Ted Stevens out of office!

NathanG on October 8, 2009 at 1:35 PM

There’s a picture of Corzine and Biden hugging in the newspaper today. Biden says Corzine saved lots of NJ jobs. Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha….paper also says Corzine has spent $19 million of his own money on his re-election. For THIS job? I just got the real estate tax rebate that there was no money for earlier this year…suddenly, after a tax amnesty voila!! there’s the money!!! Three weeks before election. Ha Ha. If I could afford it, I’d send the GD money to Christie.

Loxodonta on October 8, 2009 at 1:42 PM

Okay, my ignorance is bliss, but still. That’s what I meant by the Ted Stevens comment. Alaska, to me, is a state dominated by Republicans, but they still voted out Ted Stevens, just barely. It speaks to who the more stubborn party loyalists are: the Dems! Anyway, Corzine should be voted out of office for this campaign strategy alone. How stupid and childish do you have to be to make fun of Christie’s weight. I can’t wait until November 3. Virginia and New Jersey Republicans/Conservatives need to vote in droves. Don’t let the goofy campaign strategies of Creigh Deeds and Jon Corzine convince them that the incumbents suck!

NathanG on October 8, 2009 at 1:45 PM

I know, it’s just doggone tacky to state factually that a person, who wants to be president of the US, palls around with home-grown American terrorists; actually more than palls around with Bombin Bill n Bernadine with fundraisers in there home etc.

If he wins in November, I’ve got to wonder how on earth he’s going to discuss transportation issues or any other real problem since he refuses to talk about anything but this paper.

If Republicans can’t win New Jersey after all the crap Corzine has done, we might as well just get rid of the NJ GOP and send the money somewhere it can do some good.

capejasmine on October 8, 2009 at 2:45 PM

public polls show Corzine climbing back into a statistical dead heat with Christie,

A statistical ‘dead heat’? Are you kidding me??
Bozo the Clown should be beating any dumbocrat by double digits right now. What is wrong with you people on the upper eastern seaboard?
It’s official, if Corzine wins. You people are insane!

Lanceman on October 8, 2009 at 2:46 PM

The problem with New Jersey is that it’s a combination of Chicago and Dukes of Hazzard. The urban northern part of the state is dominated by a plethora or corrupt big city machines while the more rural southern part is run by a bunch of crooked mayors and county bosses. Many of these crooked county bosses are RINO Republicans who won’t hesitate to support Democrats in order to keep the gravy train running. If Christie is only up by three points in the polls after all the crap Corzine has pulled then, my friends, Mr. Christie is toast. Especially since the independent in the race is going to pull votes away from him, not Corzine.

Sorry, but that’s the way I see it.

I would do anything to move out of NJ, but unfortunately, family obligations will keep me in this state forever. I am not Christie’s biggest fan, but another five minutes of Corzine is too much. We had BHO, Joey Plugs, and algore here, and now I hear that Slick Willy is on his way here too. Yikes. That’s why I spent four hours on the phones for Christie today.

I was five minutes behind him at the time of his crash on the Garden State Parkway.

margategop517 on October 9, 2009 at 12:34 AM

Corzine is scum…and the state is full of political scum. You would think after all those recent arrests of Democrats that people would kick them all out. Personally, I think the Independent/Daggett is a Dem plant to take votes away from Christie…if you look at the numbers in recent weeks that seems to be what is happening.

Hugh Hewitt is correct. Nice does not win in a political campaign. However, the rule is simple, if they start it let them have it and watch how fast they back down. Never be the one to start it.
