New Jersey Governor and rising national GOP star Chris Christie has no doubt handled snide remarks from both political opponents  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 . 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.
