Food Harpie Caught Ordering Cheeseburger and Fries

One of Michelle Obama's adopted pet causes is harping at the food industry to offer healthier eating alternatives.  Alternatives to, you know, cheeseburgers and fries. Ha! Gotcha!

At least its good old fashioned American fare. She is a food critic with a problem - talks the talk but eats fast food. Cheers. FernStAlbert

I am the last to support the Democrats, especially an Obama, but seriously? She orders a cheeseburger and gets crucified? Sheesh. 80% of the time be good, 20% do what you want. It is the families living on fast food that we need to be concerned with. Let's not blow this out of proportion folks!

sounds like the liberals, trying to make a scandal out of something that isn't.
let's not stoop to their level.

I have to agree on this one - Michelle Obama shouldn't be called a hypocrite over this. Like was noted by Greg - she preaches moderation but showed that one can indulge now and again. Of course if the fries are made from fresh potatoes and fried in canola then they are not unhealthy - just a little fattening.

I would have hoped that the story read that she had a vegetarian cheeseburger. The cheeseburger and and fries doesn't have to be unhealthy.

In any case that is unfair that she is called a hypocrite over this.

She is a busy body hypocrite, just like all know-it-alls. It’s a pattern you see over and over again. She’s not getting the well deserved mocking and ridiculing for what’s going into her pie hole, it’s for what’s coming out.

Someone tell me, why do we need to be concerned that some “families are living on fast food”? Supposedly!

“Sheesh” is right. We need to mind are own business.

Heh. Interesting. The more seemingly innocuous the post, the more comments it gets.

I've really got no problem with celebrities like M.O. promoting healthy eating, as long as it stays simple advocacy and/or education (learning the food groups in grade school) and carefully avoids coersion. Unfortunately, often when these advocacy "nudges" prove insufficient, M.O. and her close illiberal pals, the nanny state food nazis, resort to "shoves" - banning "junk" foods, dictating food choices and attacking restaurant chains.

And there's no such thing as "junk" food. All food, including cheeseburgers, fries, Cheesies, Coke and icecream have a legitimate place in a healthy diet. There are only junk diets. And the state should butt out of people's diet choices unless they can stick to simple advocacy (which they probably can't).

So, there's nothing inconsistent about M.O. eating a cheeseburg with fries and advocating healthy eating. But unless she's careful to point out that it's fine for everyone to do the same (and I don't believe she has), she sends a mixed message and sets herself up for being labeled a hypocrite.

Oh look everyone!!

It’s none other than “real liberal” trash talking black people and calling himself “real conservative”.

You can always tell when they’re “disguised liberals” when they attempt to con you by pleading for your trust. Honest people don’t do that.

And don’t take my word for it.

Do you really think that Honest Freds Used Car Emporium is named that because they’re…..

Do you really think that Gaagles motto of Don’t Be Evil is because they’re not…..
