Why are Mike Hendricks' kids porkers?

If you believe him, the choices his kids make are the fault of everyone in the universe except him and his kids:

Only don’t blame the schools alone. Let’s not forget that Congress, state legislatures and the anti-tax lobby also share blame.

Yeah. The anti-tax lobby. THAT's why your kids are fat. SUURRREE it is.

Update: In an email, Mike Hendricks rightfully points out that earlier in the article he says "We parents are often lousy role models. Somebody buys those Ultimate Double Whoppers." I honestly did not see that on my initial read-through. While I regret the error, it does sound more like a cop-out than a legitimate taking of the blame on oneself. It sounds too much like the old "I'm incompetent; you shouldn't expect any better of me" defense the Clintons used so much in the 90's.
