NYTimes: Fat=Republican?

So, I was reading the Times piece about the McCain-supporting couple in Park Slope this morning, and I thought, Couldn't they at least pick a couple who looked like a New York couple? Do they have to be fat hicks? Can't you show us some Republicans who don't look like the stereotype? There must be some reasonably good looking, non-obese Republicans in New York!?

And then the gray lady outdoes herself, also in today's paper, they give us this by Olivia Judson: "Weighing the Vote: Could obesity in a pregnant woman influence the eventual political outlook of her child?"
