I've never seen a pundit attack a First Lady with such vitriol in my life. And to think Michelle Obama is taking up a cause that's as uncontroversial as can be. She's trying to protect our children from the hell that obesity can cause on their lives. Maybe he's afraid that she'll turn our children into radical Muslim sleeper agents if they try to eat healthier?
For the people who still can't stand the fact that someone with a darker hue and a non-Anglo name is in the White House, it must be frustrating, looking for something to denigrate the woman who married him. And yet, they persist.
What can be said about Michelle Obama? That she's a Harvard-educated lawyer, half of a parenting team that has produced, by all indications (since the Obamas have wisely gone to great lengths to protect their children's privacy) two well-behaved and adorable girls, and that she is leading an important mission against childhood obesity. Really, is there anything offensive in that personal resume? [See photos of first lady Michelle Obama.] Oh, but it seems there is, in the eyes of the Obama-haters and just the haters in general.
First, we have Rush Limbaugh, who, as Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank notes, bizarrely slams the first lady for daring to eat barbecue and for not looking like the picture of health she's seeking to promote. "Our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue," said Limbaugh, who, Milbank points out, is on the doughy side himself.
This is unfathomable and as you've probably noticed, the GOP< Tea Partiers and most of the media has been silent. Can you imagine if a Liberal commentator like say Al Franken had attacked Laura Bush over her concerns for better education and women's health? It would be on a 24/7 loop of indignity from the right. And rightly so I might add. Limbaugh is being more disgusting as usual and I think 'boycotts are in order this time around. Especially since he's a lying sack of sh*t.
The portly host called out Obama on his radio show Monday after it was reported she dined on 1,500 calorie-per-serving short ribs at the restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail, where the First Lady and her daughters were on a ski trip.
The lying jackass made it sound as though she'd eaten a full rack of sugary, greasy pork ribs at Tony Romas, not braised short ribs, ferchristsake. And, it turns out that the restaurant is involved in a schoolyard garden project so Limbaugh's entire thesis that she's a hypocrite is total bullshit too.
But I'm sure his racist, sexist listeners got a big old belly laugh out of it. There's nothing like dishonestly disparaging a black woman to make their day
Limbaugh might take heed to the message that our First Lady is spreading because he looks like he might explode right in his studio from one of his overheated rants after an especially haughty meal, don't you think?
His satanical exploits against Michael J Fox and stem cell research helped Claire McCaskill to win her seat against Jim Talent in the 2006 midterms.
I remember this story well because we were one of the first sites to break it and then watched it take off pretty quickly.
Rush: It's clearly an act. He's shaking and moving all around. It's the only time I've ever seen MJ Fox portray any of the symptoms of the disease he has.
He actually called Fox, (not FNC) shameless. This coming from a man who was caught carrying those little blue pills in a prescription, which could cause certain side effects, that wasn't in his own name. I did a lot of investigative reporting over that story: Limbaugh not charged, but the doctors might be in hot water
