Can Matthews Offer Better Insight than a Fifth-Grader?

New Jersey Governor and rising national GOP star Chris Christie has no doubt handled snide remarks from both political opponents [1] and the media with considerable grace regarding his weight.  Perhaps his greatest asset is the ability to take personal responsibility for this health with a strong dose of self-deprecating humor [2]. It truly is sad, however, to hear prime-time MSNBC Commentator Chris Matthews childishly deride Christie based on weight alone. Bear in mind, this is not an incident where a hot microphone was involved, allowing for a half-hearted apology. Americans deserve a more honest and respectful debate from the media, be it network or cable.
