>Rush Limbaugh recently spouted on his show that Michelle Obama is a hypocrite due to her being photographed with a fatty meal. Ribs. Yum.
In all truthiness, I wouldn’t expect a man of Rush Limbaugh’s consistently largess stature to understand this, but one bad meal does not an entire diet make! Even whilst trying to lose weight I am not able to completely deny myself of my favorite foods, no matter how shitty they are for me, the exchange is I just have them very rarely. In Mrs. O’s case, she’s maintaining her weight. Even if she is preaching better overall diets for the youth of America, she can still indulge in some delicious, fall off the bone style ribs every once in a while, knowing full well that the rest of the food she eats will balance out the indulgence.
Now if I am totally off base here and the lovely Mrs. O is practicing the art of do as I say, not as I do and eating scrumdiddlyumptious ribs every night of the week, she is either:
A) Spending 50% of the day on the treadmill. Not exactly an ideal way to maintain one’s weight, but a tradeoff that does work for many in our society.
B) Has a plastic surgeon that visits the White House at least once weekly. (Not that she’s tracked as relentlessly as LiLo or anything, but let’s be realistic, a housecall situation is the most likely given that she would never be able to visit an ‘office’ type setup consistently without the press finding out what is conducted behind these doors!) And is never seen by the press. And would likely come into contact with at least a few people while on the never understaffed estate. And would have had to stay secret for all the time the Obama’s have been living there.
And this is all the realm of conspiracy theory since we all know damn well the woman eats moderately & healthy to maintain her weight.
All this says is that Rush Limbaugh is a fatty, (I’m one too, I can call him that!), who is grasping at straws on this woman to try to pick apart her message that we should try to be healthier as a nation (WE SHOULD!), and that the ability to default to healthy choices starts at a young age, (IT DOES!!).
Maybe someone should stop picking apart other’s food choices and chug a slimfast instead!
