So, his typical lunch comes from either McDonald’s or Popeye’s.
He binges on Big Macs or ribs, and desperately tries to hide it from his wife, who’s an ardent vegetarian [aren’t they all].
He weighs close to 350 lbs.
In short, he’s a big fat guy…whose probably miserable – telling you how to eat.
Welcome to the world of New York City Councilman Leroy Comrie, the portly pol who seeks a ban on McDonald’s Happy Meals – because he thinks the cute little prizes that accompany the food causes bad eating habits.
As opposed to say, human weakness.
Now, I’m not going to knock this guy for his weight, or for being a hypocrite.
Because, in a way he’s not.
I mean, it’s not like he’s hiding his flab. Well – he can’t – but I’m sure he’s aware that by attacking McDonald’s, he’s going to look foolish.
And he does.
But there’s a weirder psychology going on here: a transference of blame to an undeserved target, as camouflage for avoiding one’s own personal responsibility for your predicament.
See, when it comes to Democrats like Comrie, it can never be your fault. Whether it’s your diet, or any part of your lifestyle – you’re never to blame.
It’s always someone or something else – preferably an evil corporation like McDonald’s, whose creepy face-painted mascot clearly puts a gun to your head to get you to eat its burgers…
Their awesome, awesome burgers.
[and don’t get me started on the fries]
See – that’s the thing about Comrie.
He knows why he’s fat: Ronald’s food tastes so damn good, and he can’t fight it.
But when looking in the mirror, Comrie sees the end result of his weakness – and takes it out on a toy.
So, who’s the real clown here?
And if you disagree with me, you’re probably a vegetarian.
Father Jonathan Morris!
