Most people understand that children are overweight when their (or any adult is, for that matter) out of balance between food intake and physical exertion. Maybe we should emphasize the idea that you get “fit” by being “fit” in practice and thought. Dean is one of those, unfortunately, misguided (heh) people with medical degrees who emphasize lack of fitness as process to reward. The problem is, the reward goes to the ideology of lack of fitness and those who maintain those with lack of fitness and not to the idea of fitness itself. -S- August 2, 2005 typo: (^^), should be: “…are overweight when they are…out of balance…” arb August 2, 2005 Perhaps Dean meant to invoke the hypothetical oath. Christopher Meisenzahl August 2, 2005 They will attack him on anything. It’s really become despicable. Every time you think they’ve hit rock bottom, they surprise you.

The Lonewacko Blog August 3, 2005 Howard Dean is about to embarass himself on Sunday. I don’t expect too many people to pay attention because of the subject, but maybe that will change. mesablue August 3, 2005 Especially stupid in light of the large increase in education funding.
