POLITICS IN THE 21ST CENTURY: Is Regina Benjamin too fat to be surgeon general? “From her photos, it appears that Dr. Benjamin will need a generous size 18 military uniform. The anti-fat brigade, who have argued about her BMI and whether or not the term obese applies, wonder if a country plagued by obesity should have an above average-weight woman speaking to public health. For me the answer is a resounding yes. This country is full of above-average weight women and children struggling for dignity as well as to lose weight.” She’ll be a role model for the oppressed! [Fine for the “above-average weight women and children,” but what about the fat men? — ed. They’ll always have Michael Moore.]
