Conservative radio host and sweaty nutjob Rush Limbaugh has had enough of this Michelle Obama character trying to make everyone eat healthy food. Especially considering she had the audacity to eat some ribs while on vacation! Limbaugh called Obama a hypocrite for advocating good nutrition yet indulging in sometimes foods at restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail, CO (she of Top Chef season seven fame). He also said: "The problem is -- and dare I say this -- it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice." Yep: Rush Limbaugh basically called the First Lady fat.
Said Limbaugh: "I'm trying to say that our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months." He just thinks she should show us that this whole healthy eating thing works. There's also an odd bit about kids who live in food desserts hanging around Orange Julius, trying to get free papaya juice?
Of course, conservatives are fond of saying Obama's healthy eating initiatives are very strict when in fact she advocates moderation. Sarah Palin once even made s'mores on her television show Sarah Palin's Alaska "in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert," and of course, who can forget Glenn Beck's war on friots. Wonder what Limbaugh would make of those those goddamn commie pinko salad bars.
