Rush Limbaugh, pioneer of inane babble, has accused the left, the government and the United Nations of exacerbating the obesity epidemic in America by attempting to feed the hungry. Limbaugh, in a trail of thought Magellan couldn’t have navigated, used as his inspiration a recent study which noted the prevalence of obesity-related health problems in poor communities.
LIMBAUGH: I think you might then say that the obesity crisis could be the fault of government, liberal government. Food stamps, all those—you know, I’m gonna tell you people a story. I—just, well, the government, you could say, is killing these people because we know obesity kills, and the government’s killing the poor. The Bush administration is killing the poor with too much food.
