Fatty Country demands Fatty President...

...at least that's the vibe you get from reading this Wall Street Journal article, which insinuates that Barack Obama might be too fit to be elected President.



The article quotes a couple Clinton supporters who claim, "He's too new ... and he needs to put some meat on his bones", and "I won't vote for any beanpole guy".

But it's not just Joe and Jane six-pack who feel this way, Arthur English, a political-science professor at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock claims that putting on the pounds and eating crappy food, "says: 'He's just like one of us".

Haven't we learned our lesson? We don't want a president who is "one of us", because then one of us could be president, and that's just the dumbest thing I've ever heard. I want a president who can lift a small car and then run ten miles. I want a president who can set an example for how we should eat in this country. A little Arugula isn't going to hurt you people! Drinking organic tea and and skipping the fast food isn't going to plunge this nation into a depression.

But no, let's vote for the guy who can't stop stuffing his face with candy bars and doughnuts, that would be the American thing to do.

I'm so with you! I want a president who is smarter than me, better than me and fitter than me.

I read that article, too, and was totally appalled. How can someone eating healthily be a bad thing??
