Sarah Palin Calls Out Michelle Obama With Apparent Breastfeeding Joke

by at . Comments

Sarah Palin has a way with words. That way is ... well, interesting.

Cracks and unnecessary side comments she made during an event last week, while harmless enough, continue to undermine her attempts to be taken seriously.


No matter how wise she might be about deficits, health care and foreign affairs, her speech to the Long Island Association will be best remembered for this line:

Love her or hate her, Sarah Palin is a quote machine.

Discussing the escalating price of gas and groceries, Palin reportedly said, "It's no wonder Michelle Obama is telling everybody you better breastfeed your baby - yeah, you better - because the price of milk is so high right now!"

Alright then.

Palin has called out Michelle Obama and her campaign to reduce child obesity many times before, so that's not newsworthy. Nor is that joke offensive at all

Just weird. Childhood obesity and the medical benefits of breastfeeding are serious topics, which she's made light of in her latest bid to chide the First Lady.

While not up there with Charlie Sheen quotes, this is one of Sarah's strangest.
