Aaaand That Just Happened

Earlier this week Sarah Palin was on Laura Ingraham’s radio show and once again she was not making sense.

“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. And I know 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.”

Hold the phone, are we talking about the same government here? Perhaps Mrs. Palin doesn’t realize that it’s our very own government who subsidizes the non-nutritious junk food way more than healthy fruits and vegetables. Or that so many of our government officials in the USDA also have held major appointments at some of the largest agribusinesses in the country. Or that it’s the same government who chooses to our children frozen pizza for breakfast. Oh, my. I’m going to stop now.

    Why does she continue to make stupid attacks? I mean, there are legitimate issues she could talk about, but complaining that our First Lady cares about what our kids eat?
    I’ve got to side with Michelle on this one, and it’s not even close.
