Cynical, Hypocritical -- or Just Stupid?

I just can't figure it out: on the same day that tens of thousands of low-income Missouri adults lose Medicaid coverage and all Missouri adult Medicaid recipients lose dental coverage, Governor Matt Blunt issues a press release entitled "Governor Encourages Participation in Shape Up Missouri."

The best quote from the press release:
"We need to get serious about staying healthy," Governor Matt Blunt said.


By the way, in case you were wondering, the "City in the Best Shape" is Manchester MO.
