Awesome: Huckabee Supports *F E D E R A L * Ban On All Smoking In Public Places

New York City has its own Nurse Mike, and he isn't all that popular with Republicans.

I guess the GOP is mulling their need for a Nurse Mike in the White House.

This causes me to wonder: Is Huckabee willing to throw the idea of limited government out the window any time there is a plausible (or even not so plausible) public health argument for doing so? What does it mean when he says it is the government's "responsibliity" to create a "culture of health," and that there should be federal legislation pushing employers encourage healthier lifestyles among their employees?

This excessively personal style of his rankles me. Oh yes, I know he wants to help me. He really cares about my health.

It's nice and all, but here's the deal, Nurse Mike H: If I want a fucking full-time health monitor I'll fucking get married, all right?

Instead of a Culture of Health, how about we instead work towards a Culture of Shut Up And Leave Me Alone?

Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Y'all got on this boat for different reasons, but y'all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything, I know this - they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, ten? They'll swing back to the belief that they can make people... better. And I do not hold to that. So no more runnin'. I aim to misbehave.

Via Hot Air.
