Question by Countess Jodhaa Bai: Did “journalist” Matt Drudge cross the line by calling female politicians “fatties”?

Discussing President Obama’s yet-to-be named healthcare czar on KFYI’s “Barry Young Show,” Matt Drudge lashed out at D.C. lawmakers, but not for any of the usual reasons. Instead, he went with a playground favorite: calling Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and other lawmakers “fatties.”

“I want to see who he appoints as his heath czar and what their blood pressure count is, and their weight. Because DC is full of a bunch of fatties. Have you seen them? Have you seen them in the Senate? Barbara Mikulski? Have you seen some of these fatties? Who are lecturing us about health?”

He may have a valid point, but is this really the way to get it across?
The valid point is, it will seem hypocritical to have representatives who are medically considered obese heading the health care reform program.
