Is it possible for New York city Mayor Michael Bloomberg to be considered both a fascist and a national laughingstock? We're about to find out:
So the ban doesn't apply to fruit juice and milkshakes -- which are so loaded with sugar they're not any different than soft drinks in how they contribute to obesity -- nor does it apply to alcoholic beverages. Good to know this is both an unprecedented and arbitrary prohibition.
Prediction: The first presidential candidate out of the gate condemning Bloomberg will probably reap a fair amount of positive media coverage, to say nothing of making inroads with voters. I didn't think anything would make Mountain Dew A.M. seem appetizing, but now it tastes like freedom.
