"If you think Michelle Obama is after your freedom because she merely suggests that our kids should exercise more and eat a little broccoli with their lard, you don't deserve a place in the free market of ideas, you belong at the cheesecake factory. She's not Stalin because she notices your kids sweat Mountain Dew. Now, this is bigger than America's ass. I know that's hard to believe so indulge me. This is about the Teabaggers fundamental misunderstanding of the difference between freedom, and the freedom to never be told anything. Like avoid food served in a bucket...

It's just a tradition that First Ladies get to pick some mundane up until now non-controversial cause to promote. Lady Bird Johnson beautifying America, Barbara Bush had literacy. Betty Ford's was no hard liquor before 10 AM. Our last First Lady Laura Bush worked tirelessly against illiteracy, so between her efforts and her husband's, it was a tie. Hillary Clinton did pioneering work in looking the other way...

Now when I look at a Moon Pie, I just see sugar and trans fats, not my constitutional freedoms, but Sarah Palin recently brought sugar cookies to a school as a protest against the government telling the school what to eat, which of course, it wasn't doing. Sean Hannity warned that we'd soon be paying fines for eating salt, which isn't a problem for Hannity who mostly eats boogers.

When did the right wing become Joe Pesci over every little thing? You sayin' I use too much salt? What am I salty to you? fark you, I use too much salt. Here take some salt right down your throat. I mean 40 years ago when Lady Bird Johnson suggested we plant wild flowers to beautify the highways, the reaction was it sounds like a neat idea, not don't tell me what I can plant, biatch. Matt Drudge promoted a story saying pedestrian deaths were way up because The Evil One, Michelle Obama had encouraged people to walk more.....directly into traffic. Those were her exact words. Walk into traffic.

Now I'm not saying the right objects to Mrs. Obama's efforts because the Teabaggers are stupid, or because they're hysterical, or because they hate black people, though all of that is true, but what does it say about America that even a First Lady's suggestion has to be controversial? Especially when she picked one no one could disagree with. Maybe we should our kids outside to play? Well, you know who else liked to send people places? Hitler.

I mean Rush Limbaugh makes a crack about this every week, because who better to get your health advice from than a drug addicted fat man. Rush, I have proof that no one in the government is forcing you to eat right and exercise. YOU!"

Don't Troll Me Bro!: For years I've been asking people butthurt about the First Lady's initiatives to state where she says that you can never have dessert, or eat a big meal on occasion. Of course nobody has ever been able to, because that's not what she's advocating. Listen, right-wingers, building strawmen might feel good at the time because you can knock them right over, but it really has a negative impact on your actual debate skills. It's not good for you in the long run. Of course, it seems that's a lot of what modern "conservatism" in America is about, so there's that.


So wait, are you telling me that a steady diet of strawmen and fallacious arguments will make one's debating skills flabby, ineffective, and unattractive? That they may be good as a "sometimes" talking point, but one should generally adhere to the solid foundations of a good, square presentation and consideration of facts to keep one's ability to debate in lean, fighting trim?

All very well and good to know, I guess, but you know, there are people in this country whose dialogue skills are weak, emaciated... frankly, they're starving for a proper argument, but they're so used to the fact-free fluff that they get from their usual sources that they're critically malinformed.

It's true what they say: the foundations to healthy thinking habits start young.

Guess what, fatties: you are not obligated to eat every last crumb on your plate, even at a high-profile event. So even though the menu may top out at 3000 calories, you don't actually have to consume more than you want to. Also, some people eat 3000 calorie meals every now and then and do just fine, because they actually go out and move their bodies every once in a while.

In short, fark you WT, and for everyone else:

  She has come under fire for the high-calorie counts of some of the state dinners she's hosted at the White House, but other nutritionists have given her a pass, saying indulging on special occasions is perfectly fine. Inaugurations, which come every four years, are about as special as occasions get.

Patient: The Washington Times

Symptoms: Complaining about what 0bama and his wife ate at the inauguration ball, calling apple pie "luxurious", needlessly mentioning that the committee that decided the menu was chaired by a democrat, making a ridiculous claim about pizza chains having to list thousands of combinations of ingredients without citing any source

Butthurt Doctor's Diagnosis: Buttdevastated. No known cure.

I'm reposting this image because, damn, that deserves to be posted twice. That woman is in her late 40s, raised two kids, has been quite successful professionally, and looks like that. Barack knows how to pick 'em. I'm nearly two decades her junior and I'd be proud to hit that. Even if she was just some chick I met in a bar.

I fail to see how this could be bad. It'd be like a rich vanilla custard plus the sour cream tang. Although it would've been kinda cool if they'd served the pie old school with a slice of cheddar.

I'd rather see what the day-to-day calorie counts are for White House meals are when there's no fancy-shmancy dinners going on. Say what you want about the Obamas (or the Bushes before them), life in the White House didn't make them fat.

Hell, I want to see what Bill Clinton's been eating (obvious joke goes here).
