Late Night: Sarah Palin Says Stay Fat, America, and Free!

Thus spake Sarah Palin:

And the lard shall set them free!

Michelle Obama has made eating healthier and ending childhood obesity her WH issues. To that end there’s a website Let’s Move which has been joined by the Partnership for a Healthier America:

Now, the Partnership for a Healthier America will support the First Lady’s cause by encouraging, tracking, and communicating commitments to healthier lifestyles from partner organizations – commitments that align with the Partnership for a Healthier America’s priorities….The Partnership for a Healthier America will fill a unique niche among childhood obesity initiatives across the United States. As a partner to the First Lady’s campaign, the Partnership will work alongside the federal government to build target industry specific solutions to fighting obesity that can be measured and tracked. Rather than award grants, engage in policy discussions or develop programmatic activities, the Partnership will concentrate on mobilizing leadership from across sectors and at every level to take action that can have a significant impact on organizational goals.

To on-the-go Mrs. Palin–who is blessed to be able to fill up her family up on clean, healthy Alaska protein like salmon, elk, moose shot with her own gun–Let’ is just more government interference. In a cat fest, Palin told Laura Ingraham how she really felt about the First Lady and her concept of healthy kids:

Take her anti-obesity thing that she is on. She is on this kick, right. What she is telling us is she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat. And I know I’m going to be again criticized for bringing this up, but instead of a government thinking that they need to take over and make decisions for us according to some politician or politician’s wife priorities, just leave us alone, get off our back and allow us as individuals to exercise our own God-given rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track.
I agree with her:
Allow us as individuals to exercise our rights to make our own decisions and then our country gets back on the right track. [I left out “God-given,” cuz some people don’t believe in God and some people have pantheons]
Those rights include the right to eat, drink, make merry and love as we please. Since Sarah wants the government out of our kitchens, let’s keep ’em out of our bedrooms too! And our living rooms! And our backyards!
I want to drink raw milk!
