"Santorum: We Don’t Need Food Stamps Because Obesity Rates Are So High."
Good news, everyone; Rick Santorum has noticed that the problem of hunger in America has gone away!
Where'd it go? Who knows. But he doesn't see any hunger around anywhere. See, Rick's -- oh, let's go ahead and call it "reasoning" -- works this way: we've got a lot of people on food stamps and there are overweight people. The end. So it's safe to cut funding for food stamps.
"If hunger is a problem in America, then why do we have an obesity problem among the people who we say have a hunger program?" Rick asks.
Fair question, fair question... I'm sorry, no it's not. It's a stupid question. Not everyone receiving food stamps is overweight, for one. For another, being overweight doesn't mean you're eating right. Need me to draw you picture? Here you go:
Rick probably doesn't know it, being a fabulously well-to-do former Senator, but cheap food is shitty food. And shitty food makes you gain weight. People don't have a weight problem because they're eating too healthy, you know. It's mostly because they eat junk. I always say that if all you can afford for dinner is a 99 cent mac and cheese dinner and a can of Orange Faygo, you're going to put on weight. It's almost unavoidable.
But that's what you call yer "facts and logic."
Rick Santorum doesn't do facts and logic. (ThinkProgress)

"Bolling Apologizes To 'Froggy,' Challenges Him To Debate."
Remember how Fox idiot Eric Bolling accused the muppets of being commies? Now he wants to debate Kermit. Kermit is a puppet. He isn't real. Apparently, some people haven't figured that out.
And, no. He didn't really apologize.
Proof positive Fox is the channel for complete morons. (Media Matters)
