Michelle Obama is pouting! Oh my, what should be done?
She is reportedly pouting and not vigorously campaigning for Democrats because a number of prominent members of her own party have not supported her omniscient, heavenly-revealed dietary-knowledge of what is best for all school children to eat.
Gasp! Say it isn’t so Democrats. Say it isn’t so New York Times.
…despite the nail-biting closeness of state contests to decide which party will control the Senate, Michelle Obama has been largely absent from the campaign trail so far.
she…believes some Senate Democrats have been insufficiently supportive of her own efforts to end childhood obesity.
She was particularly angered when 11 Democrats from potato-growing states signed a letter by Republicans opposing the administration’s exclusion of white potatoes from the foods that beneficiaries of the Women, Infants and Children program can buy.
—New York Times Article
Oh, cringe ye Democrats! You potato-heads are in big trouble. Queen Moochelle has declared all things potato off-limits for school-student lunches. Instead of “Let them eat cake.” It’s, “Let all students avoid the horrid white potato and let them eat carrots wrapped in raw spinach leaves.”
Here’s the list of the dietary-know-nothing miscreants who signed the letter opposing the administration’s exclusion of white potatoes in government-financed lunches:
Republicans: Susan Collins (Maine), John Cornyn (Texas), Mike Crapo (Idaho), Deb Fischer (Nebraska), John Hoeven (North Dakota), Mike Johanns (Nebraska), Ron Johnson (Wisconsin), Jerry Moran (Kansas), James Risch (Idaho)
Democrats: Mark Udall (Colorado), Tammy Baldwin (Wisconsin), Michael Bennet (Colorado), Maria Cantwell (Washington), Heidi Heitkamp (North Dakota), Carl Levin (Michigan), Jeff Merkley (Oregon), Patty Murray (Washington), Charles Schumer (New York), Debbie Stabenow (Michigan)
Independent: Angus King (Maine)

Gasp! Say it isn’t so Mark Udall. Say it isn’t so Carl Levin. Say it isn’t so Patty Murray. Say it isn’t so Chuck Schumer.
Double-Gasp!! Some of the very king-pins of the inner-core of Democrat/Progressivism have fallen into abject progressive-heresy. The shame of it: Disobeying her Poutship!
No one should be surprised at this latest Moochelle pout. Displaying arrogance and then pouting, when they don’t get their way, seems to be a family trait for the current White House occupants. But after all, it is unthinkably treasonous for the Obama-sycophants not to obey the royal couple they have empowered with the high self-calling to “fundamentally change America.”
Progressives easily convince themselves that they totally know best how each and every single American should manage each and every single aspect of their life, down to the tiniest detail.
That’s why we need more and bigger government—in order to continue to attempt progressive-utopian-missions-impossible; in order to continue to steal from future generations and redistribute their wealth before they are even born; and in order to demonstrate our genuine progressive bona fides: Increase our efforts to waste trillions of present-day hard-earned tax-payer dollars on failing, bureaucratic, socialistic schemes such as Obamacare.
And if someone disagrees, especially a Senate Democrat—heavens!—just happens to disagree with an omniscient-pronouncement from reigning Progressive-royalty, then that person must be punished, severely: “Off with their campaign-support.”
If there is anything that a self-worshiping-Progressive cannot stand it is to be contradicted or disagreed with on ANY of their mandatory pronouncements—and all of their pronouncements are mandatory.
Half a lunch, half a lunch,
Half a lunch onward,
into the cafeteria, hungry
Strode the student hundreds.
“Forward to a salad Bowl!
No meat and potatoes!” they’re told.
Into the cafeteria, hungry
Strode the student hundreds.
