NRO’s Andrew Johnson snags CNN’s Piers Morgan endorsing the idea of a nanny state in an interview last night with Christine Quinn, the Democratic candidate for New York Mayor.

During in interview, Morgan suggested that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s soda large soda ban was good for Americans.

“I think people need the nanny state occasionally, particularly on issues like smoking, drinking, guzzling sodas that are too big for them, eating 16 Big Macs a day,” Morgan insisted. “Whatever it may be, the reality is we all need a little bit of nannying about us.”
