What’s Coke’s new slogan, “Open happiness”?

As the health care “debate” plunges headlong into delusion, this piece in the NYT Mag, as well as a reader comment today, raises the following question:

As wingers bear down with a blanket and vicious “just say no” to reform, is it fair game to challenge them over lifestyle issues — particular, for (overtaxing the medical system by) being (irresponsibly) overweight?

(And yeah, that guy in the other Grassley townhall picture on The BAG yesterday also jumps out.)
