Rush Limbaugh vs. Michelle Obama in Food Fight

By February 28, 2011

Follow me on:

Barack & Michelle ObamaYou just have to wonder if there are any mirrors at Rush Limbaugh's palace.

The right-wing radio host has been attack First Lady Michelle Obama over her weight, of all things.

"Our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue," he said on his radio show. "Or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."

Umm... OK...

At least he sounds slender.

And it's not just Rush -- there have been some incredible bizarre attacks on the first lady over what should be uncontroversial issues.

Sarah Palin took her to task for advocating a better diet.

Michele Bachmann went after her for advocating breast feeding.

And personally, I think that Michelle Obama's 5'11" height is an insult to we shorter people.

Of course, this weird battle has made for some weirder headlines -- including one of my favorites this week at Fark.com :

Interesting! I hope that everyone’s Sunday was great and I hope that they have a great week and another great weekend like the other weekends that have occurred. I also hope that they enjoyed the recent holidays that we’ve had. I’m sorry that I didn’t say anything about this,but it slipped my mind.
