Conservative pundits have been smearing Michelle Obama with aplomb this past week. First there was Andrew Breitbart's Big Government blog, which called the first lady fat in a political cartoon. Then Michele Bachmann picked a fight over breast-feeding, of all things. Now? Back to the "fat" thing, apparently.
Rush Limbaugh took time out of his Monday broadcast to let his listeners know:
Our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.
This in response to Obama's high-profile initiative to rein in obesity in America -- to get people to eat "cardboard and tofu," as he put it. What's more, Rush did a little bit of calorie counting.
Michelle My Belle, minus the husband, took the kids out to Vail on a ski vacation, and they were spotted eating and they were feasting on ribs, ribs that were 1,575 calories per serving with 141 grams of fat per serving.
