"Who cares, I mean, seriously. I'm on the cover of Time magazine, you know?" said Christie in response to Chris Wallace's question about the triple-entendre headline of that publication's recent cover story about him. (In case you missed it: The title was "The Elephant in the Room," because Christie is a Republican, impossible to ignore, and ... you get it.) "It is certainly not the first weight joke that has been thrown my way over the course of the last four years," he added. And, like it or not, it certainly will not be the last.
