There is more than ample evidence of the immature kindergarten level* to which political discourse has sunk, but this ludicrous stab mines untapped contemptible depths of sheer stupidity:
Dr. Regina M. Benjamin, Obama’s pick for the next surgeon general, was hailed as a MacArthur Grant genius who had championed the poor at a medical clinic she set up in Katrina-ravaged Alabama.
But the full-figured African-American nominee is also under fire for being overweight in a nation where 34 percent of all Americans aged 20 and over are obese.
Critics and supporters across the blogsphere have commented on photos of Benjamin’s round cheeks, saying she sends the wrong message as the public face of America’s health initiatives. Source
* With apologies to actual kindergarteners, who aren’t old enough yet to know any better.
