Sarah Palin Rips Michelle Obama, Decries First Lady's Efforts to Curb Childhood Obesity

by at . Comments

Sigh. Sarah Palin is back in the news again.

For whatever reason, the ex-Alaska Governor took First Lady Michelle Obama and her efforts to improve childhood nutrition to task on Laura Ingraham's radio show.

We know conservatives believe in smaller government, and there are strong cases to be made for that philosophy. Attacking Michelle's nutrition initiative, though?

Sarah Palin is not a fan of Michelle Obama's anti-obesity efforts.

Of the First Lady, Palin told Ingraham that "I think she has got a different worldview and she is not hesitant at all to share what her worldview is."

As for Sarah Palin's worldview, no one can make sense of it, but she does use big words like "exceptionalism" in the rant against Michelle below:

"She encapsulated what her view of America is, I believe, unless she has evolved and things have changed in the last two years, but she said it on the campaign trail twice that it was the first time that she had been proud of her country when finally people were paying attention to Barack Obama."

"I think that's appalling. We can think of this infinite number of reasons to be proud of American exceptionalism and it baffles me that anybody would have that view and then allow that view to bleed over into policy."

"Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. 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."

"I'm going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician's wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back, and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track."

Yes ... the government needs to "get off our back" for this silly "anti-obesity thing." Why encourage health when we can be as fat as we want! Freedom rules!

Aside from making it seem like nutrition is just some interest of Michelle, not a legitimate health issue that influences a host of others, should we do nothing?

Can't you encourage people to make smarter choices that benefit themselves and the public health system as a whole? How is that an evil federal takeover?

Choose your side:


As a Fox correspondent part of Palin's job is to criticize Mrs. Obama. Obviously outside of manufacturing something (their standard operating procedure) this is the best she can do. I say let conservatives children get fat, play with guns, have unprotected anal sex (to remain virgins and not get pregnant)if that's what their parents want. That's one way to thin the herd.


Also quit talking mess about Bristol for being an unwed mother. At least she takes care of her kid and didn't abort, and her mom has been there for her through it all. There are lots of people who have pre-marital sex and it is not right according to the Bible but neither is judging others on what they do. No one sin is greater than another, except for taking one's own life.


I agree with nobody. We can sit here & gripe all day and what have we accomplished? Nothing. And as for the dummy who made the comment about her "retarded kid" you should be ashamed. I bet that "retarded kid" will grow up to be more respectful than you and more respected than you. Everyone should tend to their own business and this world would probably be a better place. The people in political positions were put there by us so let them do their job. Nobody in any political position has ever had 100% support on all of their decisions and they never will and that is normal.


What is really disturbing is that 30% to 40% of the American people would actually vote for this know nothing reality star. You Betcha!


For once, the majority of Americans are in agreement that Sarah Palin is an idiot and we want her to just go away! Please.


I wish her retarded son would get a hold of her "God given" assault weapons and blow her ass away!


With Bristol being an unwed teen mother and FAT and getting FATTER, Sarah ought to be embarrassed and SHUT UP!


@Lauren: I'm sorry, I must be mistaken - What office does Sarah Palin hold again?
I know it's hard to believe, but being on Fox News does not technically make one a politician.


@pak31... Would you prefer she be a "healthy" size 0? Bristol looked awfully healthly to me on DWTS. Not Hollywood healthy. Real girl healthy.


@Frank.... Ummmmmmm Obama is a POLITICIAN as is Palin. You are a Neanderthal. And if that is the best comment you can make to support your unsupportable position, I guess it speaks for itself.
