The Moral Equivalent of Brussels Sprouts

Even as a judge rules large chunks of ObamaCare unconstitutional, Michelle Obama — of course — pulls out the moral equivalent of war canard to defend her hectoring and puritanical war on obesity:

“Military leaders … tell us that when more than one in four young people are unqualified for military service because of their weight,” the first lady says in the prepared remarks, “childhood obesity isn’t just a public health threat, it’s not just an economic threat, it’s a national security threat as well.”

Freud called it displacement.
