On the idiocy of soda bans

Weeeelllll I was all ready to go ahead and post a rant here about Mayor Bloomberg's bizarre proposal to ban large sugary drinks in New York City, but then the Red Cowboy alerted me to the fact that Jon Stewart had not only beaten me to the punch, but done a better job than I ever could have.

So, yeah... here's Stewart, owning it as usual. He would be next week's Quote of the Week recipient, but I just can't wait that long.

"Wow, wow, wow, Mayor Bloomberg, wow. I love this idea you have of banning sodas larger than 16 ounces. It combines the draconian government overreach people love with the probable lack of results they expect. WHAT ARE YOU DOING?"
- Jon Stewart
