There will be no Richard Simmons bashing. Why, you ask? I refer you to The Corner, 5/13/2003 “RICHARD SIMMONS, FREE-MARKET HERO!”: “This is from Richard Simmons, the fitness guru, on CNN earlier today, about HHS efforts to get fast-food change to, in the words of Tommy Thompson, ‘diversify’ by providing more than oreos…and fries: “People have been frying foods since Jesus was on this planet, and there is always going to be greasy, fried, salty, sugary food. It is up to the individual to walk in and say, I don’t want those fries today. I have 40 pounds to lose. It is not the fault of the fast food people, and anyone who’s trying to sue the fast food places needs a therapist, not an attorney. You have to make your own decisions. That’s what the freedom in America is all about.”
Stuttaford, I say let’s take this guy out for a drink–he’s thinking more like us than the GOP HHS.
