So where ARE the lefties Smoking Nazis????
If Barak had been a white republican, just the fact that he smokes would have done him in with the left. Don’t I recall the dems going nuts when they heard Arnold smokes?
....some Democrats are trying to shut down the [smoking ]tent.
Critics view it as a monument to an unhealthy habit.
“It’s quite obnoxious,” said Assemblyman Juan Vargas, D-San Diego, whose office overlooks the tent and courtyard.
Vargas is carrying legislation that would force the tent to be folded. The bill passed its second committee Wednesday, winning the votes of all the Democrats on the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
“A cigar is simply a cigarette on steroids. It’s just as bad. It causes cancer,” said Vargas, who said he has never been in the tent. “I do think the example he sets is a poor one.”
Last year, anti-smoking activists protested the tent outside the Capitol, carrying photographs of well-known smokers who have died and a headstone labeled “Your Name Here.”
