Chili-Dog-Wolfer-in-Chief..

One of the things about The Golden Pantload I adore is the way he and Moo-chelle adhere to the precepts that they seemingly want to mandate on us.

"Can't I just finish my chili dogs, sweetie?"

Just a few hours after the Wide Load FLOTUS issued another one of her food-nazi diets, The Chicago Jesus -- according to the London Daily Mail -- is pounding down the junk food like there's no tomorrow:

Yesterday she unveiled the USDA's new healthy-eating guide, which replaces the famous 'My Pyramid' with a plate divided into four nutritional quadrants: fruits, vegetables, grains and proteins.

But as her husband chowed down at the famous Rudy's Hot Dog with Toledo's mayor, the only sign of 'vegetables' appeared to be some fried onions.

He ordered the house speciality chili dog, which comes with mustard, onion, chili sauce and cheese, and topped it up with a bowl of chili and a portion of fries on
As he entered the restaurant, which claims to sell 8,000 dogs a week, he told the restaurant owners: 'These guys, whatever they want; I'm buying.'

And he teased one of the cooks, USA Today reports, telling the owners: 'She says she's worked here 30 years. That means she was under-age when you hired her.'

Both Mr Obama and his wife Michelle have made healthy eating a focal point of their time at the White House.

..he's buying? Betcha it's taxpayer money! In case you didn't know it, Sluggo and Broad Beam touted this new diet with a logo that they paid over two mil in developing the new logo which replaces the old USDA pyramid. According to an interesting post by Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air:

Wow, what a breakthrough! And if the food pyramid had any relevance to diet selection for Americans, it might even have been worth the two million dollars the USDA spent just to design the logo. Yes, that’s right, it cost taxpayers $2 million for someone to draw a circle, cut it into four quadrants, and then attach labels like FRUITS and VEGETABLES. The $2 million didn’t just go into the logo design, though. According to the New York Times, they spent part of that money doing focus-group testing on circles with two lines, and on a Web site, too — as if millions of people will thunder to it to plan their dinners.

Two Million? Wonder how many chili dogs that woulda bought?

I suspect that the First Family has been exempted from the Obama diet.

It's much the same way that Congress exempted itself from ObamaCare.

Mmmmmm. $2M worth of chili dogs. Even just the thought brings a big grin to my face.

Is it at all possible for you to make a post of any actual substance?

For instance five American soldiers were killed in Iraq yesterday... oh wait, Bush is going on a bike ride so that's okay, never mind.

The employment numbers are atrocious and many economists are sounding alarms... Obama's actually making mistakes there, plenty of ammo...

Well that would take thought so you'd best just stick with, ZOMG!!!! OBAMA EATING JUNK FOOD WHILE HIS WIFE SAYS THAT'S BAD!!!!! IMPEACH! IMPEACH!

Pretty much all you're capable of I suppose.

You do know that you can eat healthy and still have the occasional bit of junk food right? I think what the Obamas are saying is that you shouldn't eat junk food all the time. That balance is important. I'm pretty sure that's not a new message from the White House.

Also the science of nutrition has progressed so putting out the latest information is a good idea isn't it?

Or are you saying that people should remain uneducated about diet and that America's growing morbid obesity isn't a problem / should be ignored?

Thanks for sticking with me guys despite my prosaic blandishments.

Seems Sewage takes umbrage with the fact that in the few minutes away from my job and familial responsibilities, I bag on his hero, The Pantload, and his generously-caboosed FLOTUS because of the 357th instance of their screamingly insensitive hypocrisy.

This from a person whose sole apparent internet commentary effort is to lurk over here and express his righteous indignation.

Let's do this by the numbers, Sewage:

The tragic deaths in Iraq occurred *after* Bush's bike ride with the soldiers, so what's your point? By the way, what's The Chicago Jesus done for the troops lately except the obligatory POTUS photo-ops and -- oh, yes -- the time he made his world tour campaign vanity speech in Germany and declined to visit a military hospital, choosing instead to shoot hoops.

Or maybe you're thinking about last August when he hung out with a few NBA stars to shoot some hoops for the troops; another narcissistic endeavor by this jerk

The point about the junk food was this: the USDA spent two mil on a logo. Seems that the money could have been better spent.

Sure, it's o.k. to have junk food on occasion and, sure, diet's important. But Moo-chelle lecturing us on diet while dragging that enormous ass around the country and the world? And this clown has made a regular habit of slamming down cheeseburgers, hot dogs, etc. It seems that every time you turn around, he's walking into a DQ or fast food joint.

Revisiting my "capability", this is a really rich comment coming from a person who does no blog nor has any other presence on the internet save for the few grotty remarks you make here.

..so, how's life down there in the basement of your parents' house?

LL, if Sewage *does* get a blog, track him down for me..

Odie, I saw Carol's pic! Here's Scooter's BHN effort: it is stunning:

"However it doesn't matter what you're doing, be it video games, drumming or drugs you should always strive to bring excellence to whatever you do. I beat Mortal Kombat with one quarter, I can almost hold a beat after two years of learning and I rolled joints so tight Stephen Hawkings could have done a paper on the physics."

..you cannot be serious? I am having conversation with someone who thinks this this/these feats are the acme of his or her endeavors? How can, on one hand you excoriate me for a pedestrian effort and on the other say you just did it for kicks?

Sewage, enjoy your visits, comment if you like, but keep it relevant and keep it free from profanity.

Your last two diatribes are frankly boring harangues (as are you); more of same and the rest of your stuff gets deleted.

Don't like it? Go back to doing your own and getting "500 hits per day".
