Michael Moore is Fat

That's an argument put forth by ex-fattie Mike Huckabee as to why health care is so expensive in the USA.
"Frankly, Michael Moore is an example of why the health care system costs so much in this country. He clearly is one of the reasons that we have a very expensive system. I know that from my own personal experience," said Huckabee, who lost more than 110 pounds and became an avid runner after he was diagnosed with diabetes.
"Sicko" producer Meghan O'Hara asks:
"I wonder what the good governor would say to the French, who drink more, smoke more, eat more cheese and still live longer than us despite paying less for health care?"
I haven't seen "Sicko" yet because it has not yet been screened in Lake Placid or Tupper Lake. I had to go to Plattsburgh to see Fahrenheit 9/11. But from all accounts it is an eye-opener.

Evidently, Dr. Sanjay Gupta was on CNN the other day misrepresenting several things presented in Sicko. Michael Moore has posted the misrepresentations and the corrections on his website. Other facts presented in the movie are verified here. Moore also took the "bearded one" Wolfe Blitzer to task here.
