Chris Christie Makes All Fat Angry Men Look Bad

I can empathize with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. I also have too much tonnage around my middle, and I have been known to have moments that make the Incredible Hulk look serene, but the good Governor needs to chill a bitl.  From this New York Daily News article,
Chris Christie called a Navy veteran an "idiot" at a New Jersey town hall meeting Thursday after they locked horns over the governor’s plan to merge two public universities.
The veteran, William Brown, a law school student at Rutgers-Camden, was speaking out against the governor's plan to merge his school with Rowan University when he became the target of a signature Christie rant.
The article continues,

Eventually, Brown was escorted from the meeting by police.
"Let me tell you something, after you graduate from law school, you conduct yourself like that in a courtroom, your rear end is going to be thrown in jail, idiot," Christie shouted as Brown was led away.
He then turned to the mostly sympathetic crowd and added, "You know, I tried to be patient with the guy. Every time I tried to answer, he started yelling over me again. Damn, man, I'm governor, could you just shut up for a second?"
The attitude "Damn, man, I'm the governor" works in South Dakota when a Governor wants to push through anti-teacher legislation, but the phrase shouldn't be used to insult a former Navy SEAL  Even in South Dakota, it sounds a lot like a the starting quarterback who just got caught cheating on test and then asks the teacher "Do you know who I am?

I really would like to look Governor Christie in the eye and say "Damn, man you're making all of us fat guys look bad."
