Sarah Palin had the exact recipe for pouring scorn on Mrs. Barry’s nanny-state nonsense: she made s’mores and said “This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert.”
Mean Michelle’s crusade, er, hajj, is to get us all to eat right and not be fat. In this, she is worse than an idiot: she is a would-be dictator, because it is only a matter of time before federal funding to schools will depend on the nutritional virtue of their lunch menus. Virtue, at least, as seen by the see-all, know-all Eye in the White House.
Advice from one who majored in African-American studies on a topic as complex as nutrition and obesity is not just useless. It is insulting. Given her husband’s lack of success in just about all important things, perhaps Michelle could just keep her mouth shut.
Wait, John, are you suggesting that Obamacare is not a success? I’m not just suggesting, I’m insisting that this is true. No, Obamacare is not a success, it’s a heinous expansion of state power for its own sake, passed in total secrecy and which no elected official had read before it was passed. In just the latest example of unintended but predictable consequences, the Democrat Party House Organ, sometimes called the Washington Post, had a story on the front page headlined “Health plans for high-risk patients attracting fewer, costing more than expected.” Do tell.
NRO summarizes the gratuitous dietary advice from the First Nanny thusly:
If the Obama administration should happen to win the wars (and keep the won wars won) and balance the budget, head off the looming fiscal crisis, and present the American people with the head of Osama bin Laden, perhaps at that time it can get back to us about the broccoli.
In short, Michelle and Barry: don’t sweat the small stuff before you’ve taken care of any big stuff.
As for Sarah, she may be unelectable, but she’ll surely give a lot of pompous Democrat politicians heart attacks.
