From reader Lisa H. comes this disturbing exchange between former drug addict turned Travel Channel’s No Reservations chain-smoking, alcohol-sodden host Anthony Bourdain and no-talent rock star has-been Ted Nugent on the so-called obesity epidemic. All the old tired cliches are there, as well as the most recent trend of inflating obesity with national security. It seems that not only does Bourdain have no reservations, he also has no class and no knowledge of all the physiological and environmental variables that play a role in why we weigh what we do. And Ted Nugent? Well, I have absolutely zero expectations for a conservative and misogynistic homophobe who, when he’s not attacking his fellow man, makes a sport of hunting and killing defenseless animals. I don’t recommend watching the video even if you have a high threshold level for ignorant jackasses who exhibit zero compassion or empathy for other human beings.
I try to maintain a high level of professionalism on this site because I think taking the high road is what distinguishes me from people like these jerks, but my title pretty much sums up my feelings on the matter.
