Oh, you didn't hear? Fat people are incapable of holding important political positions because clearly they're going to be too busy shoving donuts down their throats and expanding their muffin top to get shit done. And forget about fixing America's "obesity problem" with these fatties in office because people will take one look at their rolls, and say, "Well, I'll be damned. That important person is fat, so I'm going to be fat too!"
People actually believe in this crap. And by "people," I mean one misguided whacko who was, for some reason I can't begin to fathom, invited onto Fox News to criticize President Obama's Surgeon General nominee, Dr. Regina Benjamin, for being too fat for the job.
Misguided Whacko begins by saying, "This is going to anger a lot of your female audience." I'm sorry, I just have to say this: NO SHIT! (Note his t-shirt. I bet he gets a lot of ladies by sporting that classy attire at bars).
"Would you then want the head of the Fed Reserve to be a guy in a cardboard box who lives underneath the highway because because he understands the plight of poor people and he understands how to make money work?" (So... being overweight... equals... living in a... box...? I don't get it).
"She has shown not that she was born this way, not that she woke up one day and was obese; she has shown through being lazy and making poor food choices that she is obese." (Oh damn! I had no idea this guy was Regina Benjamin's doctor!)
I'm gonna go puke all over Fox News now.
