Dean Chambers’ Dumbest Prediction Yet

Dean Chambers clearly doesn’t learn lessons very well. Or maybe he just doesn’t care if he ends up being humiliated publicly as long as it earns him some attention. But after being thoroughly embarrassed by “unskewing” the polls and predicting a Romney landslide last year, he’s made his dumbest prediction yet: Chris Christie is going to run as a Democrat, because only as a Republican could he get elected as a fat man. Or something.

Chris Christie isn’t seriously working at losing weight because of health or vanity. He’s doing it because he very seriously want to be the next President of the United States. If he ran a Republican he could be overweight and get elected, like Taft or even others more recently. But to run as a Democrat, because Democrats are more vain about factors like that, he knows he need to slim down and look the part. Notice the liberal Hollywood will never cast a heavy guy as the president in the movies.

I’m predicting it today. Chris Christie is going to run for president in 2016 as a Democrat. Yes you read that right, Chris Christie will run for president in 2016 as a Democrat.

He can’t win the Republican nomination, no matter what, no matter how much support from the party insider he gets, and he’s not getting that, because the party insiders are lining up behind the candidacy of former Florida Governor, and rising RINO, Jeb Bush. And Christie can not run as a conservative alternative to the party establishment’s RINO candidate either. He has no where to go in the GOP for his national ambitions, and there is zero path to the GOP nomination for Chris Christie.

Oh, Dean. I hope you have the courage of your convictions. I think you should step up to the plate like Brad Marston did last year when he bet me $2500 that Herman Cain was going to win the Republican nomination. So how about it? $2500, me and you, and I promise to extract maximum public humiliation when I win.

    And money.

    There is huge amounts of easy money in feeding the fundie/Tea Party delusions back to them. And it is easy, just make stuff up as you go along. They aren’t going to notice or care than none of it ever happens.

    This is a group whose best idea is to sit around in a catatonic stupor, waiting for that happy day when a Sky Monster shows up, kills 7 billion people, and destroys the earth.

    Doesn’t that contradict the whole Hilary Clinton will inevitably be the Demcratic party presidential candidate thing widely believed (or so I gathered?) on both sides?

    For the record I think Hilary Clinton would be great and actually should’ve been the candidate back in 2008 and consequently be president today.

    I expect she will run and win in 2016 so hey, that’s my prediction for the record.

    “… whom I won’t bother to name because I can’t really think of any, and maybe there aren’t any, but you know – Taft, so my point is proven”.

    Well to be fair you have actually got to be alive to have any chance to be president. Chrstie was morbidly obese, I’d wager that he was given an ultimatum by his doctor hence the lap band surgery, which is not a decision to be taken lightly and normally results when other avenues for weight loss have been exhausted.

    While it wasn’t a movie, and it wasn’t becoming POTUS via election, on the TV series “West Wing” John Goodman played Glen Allen Walken, who became president via an exercise of the 25th Amendment. I think Dean Chambers sounds like he’s upset over being called fat himself.

    That said, the notion of Christie attempting a run as a Democrat isn’t completely inconceivable, merely unlikely.

    Dean Chambers: “Notice the liberal Hollywood will never cast a heavy guy as the president in the movies.”

    Sure — just like Hollywood refused to cast Victor Buono as Taft in Backstairs at the White House.

    Like William Conrad never got the starring role in Cannon (1971-76) or Sebastian Cabot was refused a role in Checkmate and Family Affair. John Rhys-Davies never got into Sliders or Shogun because of his weight. Think of all the other portly failures in Hollywood: Zero Mostel, Sidney Greenstreet, Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Laughton, Jackie Gleason, John Belushie… to name a few.

    Ah yes, only Republicans can see past shallow judgements and vote for someone who isn’t lean and fit. Why, I remember how Bill Clinton was elected only because he was famously svelte. Wasn’t the health-conscious delicacy, the Big Mac, his favorite food?

    Did Brad Marston pay up?

    To actually be fair, you really can’t tell anything about someone’s health by looking at their size.

    Anectote: I am ‘morbidly obese’ and have great numbers; blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol’s a bit high, but my doc isn’t worried about it. I have an uncle who has less than 20% body fat (AND can’t keep weight on very well), can walk four miles in the time many people jog it (recently retired mail carrier) and has congenitally high cholesterol such that he gets it checked quarterly and requires heavy statins, b/p meds and blood thinners. His father died of heart failure at 54 and one of his brothers died at 48. Who’s the healthier one?

    Know what? I wouldn’t even try to touch that question and I know myself really well and have known my uncle for thirty years.

    @7: Uh, you really should have stopped after the second paragraph with the Buono mention, because you strawmanned the hell out of Chambers’ argument with the third one (i.e. his argument was that doesn’t cast heavyset actors to portray the POTUS, not that that that they don’t cast heavyset actors in ANY part).

    A little Shakespeare anyone?

    Caesar: Let me have men about me that are fat;
    Sleek-headed men and such as sleep o’ nights:
    Yond Cassius has a lean and haungry look;
    He thinks too much: such men are dangerous

    ;) Dingo.

    “Notice the liberal Hollywood will never cast a heavy guy as the president in the movies.”
    What, like the positively anorexic John Goodman in the West Wing?
