Let them eat Vicodin!

Tom Tomorrow listens to Rush Limbaugh's crackpot theory that the government is to blame for fattening up the nation's poor and UNICEF for starving African children:
With typically drug-addled logic, he uses a report showing an epidemic of obesity among the poor Ã¢â‚¬â€ which any rational individual would understand to be the result of high-fat, low-nutrition diets Ã¢â‚¬â€ to conclude that we are, as a society, giving too much to the poor. And from this premise, the drug-addled host then dismisses the problem of Ã¢â‚¬â€ wait for it Ã¢â‚¬â€ starvation in Africa.Rush on how UNICEF is starving the third world: "We didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t teach them how to fish. We gave them the fish. We didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t teach them how to slaughter the cow to get the butter. We gave them the butter. The real bloat here as we know is in government."
