Spitzer: NY schools to monitor kids' weight

Hat tip to Van Helsing at Moonbattery for an illustration of his blog's namesake:
Offering a taste of what his constituents have let themselves in for by electing him, Governor Eliot Spitzer has announced that New York will be the "healthiest state." This will be accomplished in part by requiring that body mass index be monitored in schools.

The objective is "shifting focus to the prevention of disease," according to Spitzer. You're not against the prevention of disease, are you? Good, then you won't mind your taxes shooting up to pay educrats to keep track of how much your kids weigh.

So far there are no plans in New York to install two-way telescreens in all homes to ensure that citizens perform morning calisthenics.

Um, I don't know how to break this to you, Gov. Moonbat, but being fat is every American's God-given right. Hell, considering that you're pals with Jerrold Nadler (D-NY), you may wanna back off of that idea, at least for fear of alienating the poor guy.

You voted for him, live with it.

"Leave my Twinkies alone, Spitzer...or get in mah belly!"
