In a recent speech at Plumstead Christian School in Plumstead Township, PA Sarah Palin criticized the Pennsylvania’s board of education’s work to fight childhood obesity. She bashed the board’s plans to limit the number of sugary foods given to children in school at snack time, calling the proposed guidelines “a nanny state run amok.” Some are calling the incident Palin’s “cookiegate.”
“I look at Pennsylvania and I think of sweets – I think of Hershey. Then I think, how dare they ban sweets from school here,” said Palin. “I wanted these kids to bring home the idea to their parents for discussion,” she continued. “Who should be making the decisions what you eat, school choice and everything else? Should it be government or should it be the parents? It should be the parents.”
Joe Biden is the most recent candidate whose medical records have been made public. The Obama/Biden campaign released his records this week, indicating that Joe Biden is in good health. The 65-year old Senator is currently on an aspirin regimen to manage an irregular heart rhythm, found just more than two years ago. He does not have heart disease. He also takes Flomax to manage an enlarged prostate (no signs of cancer), allergy medicine and Zocor to lower his cholesterol. The report states that he has not had another brain aneurysm since the two in the late-80s.
