Sarah Palin mocks Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign

Sarah Palin mocks Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign on reality show with jab about dessert

Sarah Palin has repeatedly taken aim at Michelle Obama's efforts to fight childhood obesity.

Arias/AP; O'Boyle/AP Sarah Palin has repeatedly taken aim at Michelle Obama's efforts to fight childhood obesity.

 

She's all for cutting flabby government, but Sarah Palin wants Michelle Obama to butt out of keeping kids from getting fat.

The moose-munching Tea Party darling is picking a fight with the First Lady - over dessert.

"Where are the s'mores ingredients?" the sharp-elbowed hockey mom growled in Sunday's episode of her outdoorsy TLC show "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

"This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert," Palin said mockingly as she rummaged through her kitchen cupboards for graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate.

The former vice presidential candidate was apparently referring to a speech in which Michelle Obama did not quite put a ban on sweet treats.

"As I tell my kids, dessert is not a right," Obama told the NAACP in July, touting her "Let's Move" campaign to combat childhood obesity.

While Obama's program does not explicitly tell parents to avoid dessert, it suggests cutting back on sugar.

It was the second time in a month Palin has bashed the First Lady's calorie-curbing movement.

"What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat," the ex-Alaska governor told radio host Laura Ingraham last month.

"Instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician's or politician's wife's priorities, just leave us alone . . . "

The White House declined to comment on Palin's barbs, or her appetite for s'mores.

Studies show that one in three American children is overweight or obese, increasing their risk of developing life-altering illnesses like diabetes.

The First Lady's "Let's Move" program encourages families and schools to adopt a healthy approach to activity and nutrition.

Obama has led by example. She has planted a vegetable garden at the White House, and last month she led kids in an exercise class at a Police Athletic League center in Harlem.

In her efforts, Obama has not been holier than thou, admitting to having a soft spot for at least one dessert.

"One of the reasons I talk about pie and burgers is because if you tell people they can never have the stuff they love, they'll shut down," she told Ladies' Home Journal in August. "What is life without the things you love to eat? For me it's pie."

Comments:
First the liberals removed "dangerous" playground equipment from school playgrounds (i.e. monkey bars, seesaws merry-go-rounds). Then they banned games such as tag and dodgeball and chase, Now that our kids have gained weight from lack of activity, the liberals want to regulate what our kids eat.

What is wrong with this picture?
I saw Sarah Palin's comment on her TV show. It was so quick that you could easily miss it. I actually thought to myself, did I hear that right? That's how quickly it came and went.

But apparently her one-second comment about dessert is one of the most compelling and important news stories of the day. At least according to the mainstream media.

Isn't this just pathetic? The news coverage I mean, not Sarah Palin's comment. Of course Palin is right about dessert not being any of Michelle Obama's business, but to see her little comment be the basis of nationwide news stories demonstrates how unhinged the liberal left-wing nuts in this country have become.

It's delightful that Sarah Palin makes these people so wacky. Pure delight.
Sarah Palin is a joke but that's her right as an American.
Why pick on dessert when many breakfast foods ... the grab and run kind ... are high sugar refined carbs? Or did that sugary stuff fall off Michelle's radar? Michelle might have been better served to sponsor an education program about benefits of fruits, vegetables and proteins in a balanced diet.
@RJOh: A joke? I think you're confusing her light-hearted attitude with policy. She's no joke.
Maybe the problem lies in the high fructose corn syrup and aspartame they insist putting into everything.
@ Rick .... Don't forget canola oil. They used a fantastic marketing campaign selling it to us.
I am offend as a Black woman to the likes of this dumb a$$ hillbilly to even speak to the First Lady in this manner. She doesn't stand a chance against Michelle Obama. She is JOKE! and the worst kind an idiot. Only the Repuppyian in her words"limp" licking their lips over this Moose,Deer shooting female. Where is the respect for the Presidency and the title: First Lady, envy will get you nowhere.
