The AP reports on Mike Huckabee's speech to Southern governors:   

"Today we hear a lot about the war on terror, how we need to fight it," said Huckabee, who lost 110 pounds several years ago when he was governor of Arkansas. "Let me ask this question: Who's going to fight it in the future if we're a generation so sick that we don't have the capacity to show up for work?"

... "We keep talking about the war on terror _ who's going to fight it if we don't have enough people who are healthy enough to show up and pick up a backpack?"

Maybe he can start a govt program to fix fat kids ...
