Good news, New Yorkers: Bloomberg says you have the right to get fat

You have his permission. Isn’t that magnanimous of him?

Here’s Bloomberg talking to scofflaw gun criminal David Gregory on Sunday. For some reason, Gregory is pretending to be a libertarian:

“If you want to eat a lot and get fat, you have a right to do it.” Just don’t get fat by drinking more than 16 ounces of soda at a time, I guess? Who the hell knows. I’m sick of trying to figure out how, or if, this food-fascist thinks.

You know, I don’t see Bloomberg posing for any fitness magazines. I really don’t want to know what’s going on under that suit, but the guy’s not exactly a walking billboard for his own policies. Maybe he should spend less time running his yap and more time just plain running. I recommend a short pier.
