Fighting Fat

Blue State Republican over at Mike Huckabee President 2008 has an interesting pair of links comparing the cost of the Iraq War to the cost of obesity. As I mentioned Friday, Governor Mike Huckabee lost 110 pounds and is campaigning for healthy diets and exercise.

BSR's post links to House Budget Committe documents showing the Iraq war's cost is $6 billion a month, and to Centers for Disease Control figures that showobesity costs America $9.75 billion a month. (Blue State Republican)
