What do Gavin Newsom and Sarah Palin have in common? They both believe that parents are the deciders, at least when it comes to fattening their children on junk food.
Palin was recently in Pennsylvania accusing them of being a “Nanny State run amok.” Her solution: stuff the poor deprived children of Plumstead Christian School with her wholesome mamma bear cookies. Poor Palin didn’t realize that the private Christian school would be exempt from PA’s new public school nutrition rules, or that the new guidelines did not ban cookies.
Newsom, who moonlights as a purveyor of quality fine foods and liquor, recently vetoed a local San Francisco ordinance that would ban fast food outlets from giving away toys with their junk food, saying "Parents, not politicians, should decide what their children eat."Newsom also recently vetoed the San Francisco liquor tax which was supposed to help defray city expenditures on alcohol related injuries and illness. Ironically, Newsom has had both a history of alcoholism and corrupting minors.
