Asked by Parade magazine, “What do you hope to accomplish in your second term?” First Lady Michelle Obama said she wants to “impact the nature of food in grocery stores” with the aim of cutting sugar, fat and salt.
Are the Marie Antoinette jokes even jokes now?
Laura Bush quaintly focused on literacy. Michelle Obama is pathologically obsessed with the food in other people’s mouths.
The good news is that lovers of sugar, fat, salt and having a job that allows them to buy food with these things in them, have a fairly clear choice in this election. And those who are obsessed with regimenting and controlling what other people eat also have a choice. At least until Bloomberg run for office in 2016 on the “No Labels Anywhere Except on Food” ticket.
We can either have an administration that will make it possible for people to afford to buy the food that they want to eat or we can elect an administration that will make sure that everyone has less money and less filling food.
