The weighty issue of our time: Chris Christie...

This morning, there were a few e-mails objecting to my portrayal of Gov. Chris Christie as a doughnut aficionado. Several people asserted that I would never draw a Democrat like that, or that I was making fun of him because he’s overweight. Both of those statements aren’t true, and furthermore, if you examine the cartoon, it’s not about whether Christie is fat or not. It’s about whether he fantasizes about being president.
