Another big, fat hypocrite…

Hypocrisy: A feigning to be what one is not or to believe what one does not.  Defines this councilman perfectly…

Via NY Post: Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-Queens) stood shoulder-to-shoulder with McDonald’s execs yesterday at the chain’s outpost in Cambria Heights, Queens, to tout the latest version of the Happy Meal, which comes with apple slices, fewer fries and less calories.  The portly politician, whose wife said he weighs around 335 pounds, said the move by McDonald’s to slim down the Happy Meal means his threat to ban fast-food joints from giving out toys in children’s meals worked.

“You know, it was never an absolute ban. It was more of an encouragement for people to do better,” Comrie said.  “McDonald’s is taking the lead, but we have other service restaurants that we’re still looking at.”
Earlier this year, Comrie proposed banning toys in all kids’ meals with more than 500 calories.  “If they are visibly and nutritionally doing better, then there’s no need for the legislation,” Comrie said yesterday.
An old Happy Meal with a burger and Coke came in at 590 calories, but the new Happy Meal has 490 calories — and even less if milk is substituted for soda.
But Comrie said he’ll still push hearings to keep the debate going about toys.

Speaking of miles, if Leroy will run five miles to a Baskin-Robins, Barack Obama will give him a free dish of ice cream that he actually paid for himself. Barack Obama will be playing golf that day, but a cut out of him will be next to the ice… Read more »

Other politicans want to be like San Fransissy’s (Yes I CAN call it that, I was born and raised there) Mayor {and Nancy Pelosi’s nephew} Gavin Newsome. As I was growing up in S.F. Pelosi, Alioto, Moscone, Feinstein and a host of other politicans (some now lifelong political (tax) blood suckers) ruined S.F. by pandering to their special interest groups, and then did the same to California with their (because they know whats better for us than we do) legislating (which is total B.S.). Now the same political leaches are at the forefront of ruining this nation. The ever controlling… Read more »
