Mitt Romney finally clinched the GOP nomination Tuesday night, and his wife Ann's speech was heartfelt, if stiff.
But really, the only thing worth noting from Day 1 of the Republican National Convention is that Chris Christie, Republican governor of New Jersey, appeared during his keynote speech to be at his heaviest weight since bursting onto the national political scene several years ago -- and members of the media were less than compassionate.
The GOP star is no stranger to fat jokes, however, and played it cool, as usual:
Introduced to the Michigan delegation at the convention Tuesday morning by a woman from a restaurant trade group, Christie could not resist.
"Did she just ask if I'm aware of the restaurant industry? Seriously?" Christie deadpanned. "Yes, I am mildly aware of the restaurant industry, in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Connecticut. Yeah, the entire region!"
