It’s on. The Newark mayor took a swipe at New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg’s nanny statism Saturday, tweeting that he had offered Newark kids their choice of large sugary drinks. They had a choice? The horror!

Shorter Cory Booker: size matters. Especially when it comes to sweet, sweet sugary goodness.

Now that he’s dead to the Obama administration, Booker is free to say what’s on his mind. We’d like a supersize portion of that, please.
