Sarah Palin, Teamsters applaud overturn of Bloomberg’s soda ban

The invalidation of Nanny Bloomberg’s ban on sugary drinks larger than 16 oz. has drawn applause from both ends of the political spectrum. Sarah Palin was happy to have the government kept out of New York’s kitchens (in this case, at least), but she wasn’t alone. The Teamsters also cheered the striking down of the “job killing ban.”

It’s not surprising that a ban on 17 oz. sodas would manage to bring together just about everyone, regardless of politics. What sort of person would support this kind of ridiculous government overreach in the first place?

      And Mika Bimboski of Morning Schmoe read Palin’s Tweet in an exaggerated silly voice! Palin still lives rent-free in their heads.

    Of course Piers gives his idiotic opinion SMH. This is a small victory towards government overreach

    Piers is an assclown, he used to at least have some reason but anymore he just takes the opposite side of whatever conservatives want.

    • Dan Thorpe

      Not just conservatives, people with common sense. Its the people’s responsibility to care for their own health not government. Anyone that wants government to pass laws like this want to take no personal responsibilty.

        I should have just said he sides with liberals on everything, my apologies

    OK. I think I have finally found something that people from all over the political spectrum, left and right alike, can come to a consensus on:

    If the only person who agrees with you is Piers Morgan and if you’ve drawn ideological ire from such disparate opponents as Palin and the teamsters, your legislative efforts have become so insane you are no longer fit for public service.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      Teamsters’ movitation is the alcohol and soft drink distributors cutting jobs if the ban went into effect.

      • Darth_Venomous

        That may be. But, despite our differences with them, that rationale is also very valid. In this economy, the last thing we need is Nanny Bloomers regulating jobs out of existence.

    Let’s start by restricting food stamps usage to fruit, vegetables,meat and dairy. Then we can start talking about what people can spend their own earned money on.

  • Finrod Felagund

    How long before the rabid anti-Palin trolls find something to kvetch about here?

  • John (it true me am)

    You know you’re on the wrong side of history when Piers Morgan is your only supporter.

    • TheOriginalDonald

      I apologize for hiring Piers Morgan over Trace Adkins-Donald Trump

    Nanny Bloomberg ignored the term limits in place in New York City, when he ran for a third term as mayor. Why should we expect him to care about or adhere to the decision of this judge?

  • QBallBrazil

    *sigh* You know Piers, honestly we heard your type of B.S. in 1776 & 1812. Call me crazy, but do you really think it’s going fly in 2013?

    Piers Morgan, the village idiot who likes to argue dead arguments…because 200 years later it’s “progressive” and “liberal”.

  • Jim

    Thanks for the input, Piers Morgan! Don’t forget to buzz off!

  • ceyanne

    Well Piers, no one is stopping you from limiting yourself to 16 oz. or less. Have at it. But no one needs the gov’t to do that for them.

  • oneword

    Piers Morgan is still a Jerk.

    Show us just where in the job description for “mayor” it says anything at all about regulating the diet of the citizenry, Piers. You Limey freakin’ idoit.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    SEIG HEIL IN YOUR FACE, HERR BLOOMBERG! I hope this Judge, Milton Tingley, runs against you for mayor, WINS BY A LANDSLIDE, and undoes all of your stupid Nanny-State laws, rules and Regulations! Jawamax 8<{D} Then Maybe I can go back (affordably) and visit my Cousin, who's disabled!

  • Renny

    Piers Morgan is a colossal idiot.

  • Leroy Whitby

    Damn, Piers Morgan is a stone cold freak. Killing babies is good for him, protecting a family with a gun is bad, and sodas need to be “controlled.” Fascist knob polisher.

    Really, Piers? You don’t know what the function of a mayor is in the United States? Go back to not-so-merrie olde, please.

    Hopefully the general population will realize from issues like banning super-sized sodas that the government has and always will over-reach and we, the voters and the media, are responsible for keeping the government in-check and in their place as servants to the public.

    Piers Morgan is always on the wrong side of common sense. Sarah Palin, on the other hand, is always on the right side.
