Well, we fight back by downing 64-ounces of Diet Coke in a single sitting, that's what.
New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg has proposed banning the sale of large sodas and sugary drinks at all venues in New York City.
Yeah, Bloomberg is serious about the obesity problem in America and he wants New York to lead the way in fighting it.
Public Enemy No. 1: Big Gulp.
Well, this is America, Bloomberg. We have the freedom to be as obese as we want to be. So what if we're a nation of fat slobs. We're free fat slobs.
“New York City is not about wringing your hands; it’s about doing something,” he said in the New York Times. “I think that’s what the public wants the mayor to do.”
Is Bloomberg a do-gooder Democrat? Or a pro-government Commie?
What in the world is going on?
Well, I like Bloomberg. He's pro gay marriage, pro gun control and sensible on immigration.
He's one of the few Republicans I could vote for. Of course, he couldn't win any Republican primary outside of New York. Actually, Bloomberg is now an independent after being a Republican and before that, a Democrat. Every lineup needs a switch-hitter.
Enough of obesity and Big Gulps, let's talk about the economy and the "job creators."
Check out this story on "How the 'job creators' really spend their money."
Okay, that's enough on the economy.
Let's get back to the birther movement.
The Mitt-wit's new BFF, The Donald, went on an epic rant recently about Obama's birth certificate. Yes, he did this last year, too, but this is an election year.
Here's how "The Colbert Report" saw it.
Stay tuned, this birther story isn't going anywhere.
