Progressive's Buffet: “American Grown” Bullshit


Michelle Obama Writes ‘American Grown’ - NYTimes.com [Except that, of course, she didn't. As we learn late in the "review:"]
"Mrs. Obama had lots of help writing her book. In addition to Lyric Winik, a Washington writer ...,” there are White House staff members connected to the garden and kitchen and those who have stories to tell about the gardens they have started in their cities and towns. There is also a section on the importance of physical activity, including a photograph showing Mrs. Obama doing her record 142 hula hoop revolutions on the South Lawn.

Look on the bright side. At least there's not a DVD with a video of her swirling the hula hoop 142 times. (Also not a "record" that is remotely close to the record of "Aaron Hibbs from Columbus, Ohio ... at 74 hours and 54 minutes.")

Your Say

I'm assuming that the First Klingon laid the hula hoop to rest on her enormous ass cheeks and would just grind a little 142 times and call it good.

Very clever to put that basket of veggies in front of her hips...

Are those vegetables from teh toxic garden?

(Making a big production with fanfare for doing something that many people do anyway is so typical of the far left. BTW - I do not garden because it is a lot of work and there is Kroger one mile away.)

Ah yes, the toxic garden. When I first heard about it—fertilized with sewage, thus considered unfit for human consumption—I thought, That's a shame. They should dig out that dirt and replace it with fresh fertilizer... that would take at least a truck... oh, bad idea.

See, the bit there is where I realize it's a bad idea BEFORE suggesting it everywhere, and not after the shock and horror of people saying "You wanted to drive a truck of fertilizer up to the White House?"

Don't say it's a good idea. 'Cause really, that would just be nasty.

Mrs. Obama doing her record 142 hula hoop revolutions...

The record is for the number of unsuccessful attempts to get the hoop down past her hips.
