Chris Christie's a bit of a fatso.
Regardless of whether you like him, agree with him politically, or hate his guts, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is a bit on the husky side. At a stunning 5-foot-11 and upwards of 285 pounds, Christie's bod resembles that of "Vito" from "The Sopranos" -- sans the appeal to burly bikers -- which is essentially what California Governor Jerry Brown pointed out over the weekend while challenging the outspoken Republican to a foot race.

Brown, who Christie bashed in his address at the Republican National Convention last week by basically calling him old, acknowledged his advanced years during a speech at the United Food and Commercial Workers Local 770 on Friday. He then threw in a little humble brag about how he's pretty much the fastest 74-year-old governor in America.

"There's nothing wrong with being a little retread. Not as much hair, I've slowed down a little bit," Brown said. "But I have to tell you, I ran three miles in 29 minutes two nights ago. And I hereby challenge Governor Christie to a three-mile race, a push-up contest and a chin-up
contest. Whatever he wants to bet, I have no doubt of the outcome."

The challenge obviously is in reference to Christie's being a fatso -- and Brown is right: there is no doubt in the outcome.

It's unclear whether Christie will accept the challenge. If he does, however, the Voice's own political foot-race bookmakers are putting Christie's odds at 5,000/1 -- and that's being generous.

Any takers?
