Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin: “Boobs” Who Hate Healthy Children

Moonbat-crazy Michele Bachman, a Teapublican Rep. from Minnesota, is shooting off her mouth yet again. The potential (but doomed) presidential candidate appeared with radical right-wing radio host Laura Ingraham on Tuesday’s show and feigned shock that First Lady Michelle Obama would once again advocate on behalf of healthy children. Apparently, Bachmann hates healthy children.

Recently, Michelle Obama continued her efforts to reduce childhood obesity by promoting breast feeding. Additionally, the IRS has just announced that the cost of nursing supplies that aide in the practice will be tax-deductible. The First Lady explained to reporters last week, “We also want to focus on the important touch points in a child’s life. And what we’re learning now is that early intervention is key. Breastfeeding. Kids who are breastfed longer have a lower tendency to be obese.” Her spokeswoman Kristina Schake added, “Breastfeeding is a very personal choice for every woman. We are trying to make it easier for those who choose to do it.”

Sounds reasonable doesn’t it? Ms. Obama would like to encourage mothers to breastfeed their children so that they can potentially cut into the child obesity epidemic and the children can then live healthier adult lives. Furthermore, she would like to make it easier (i.e. less costly) for mothers to continue the practice by means of providing tax relief equal to the cost of the required supplies. A win-win. Healthier children and tax relief! Sounds like a plan right out of the tax-cutting, family-values Tea Party handbook.

But wait! We have a dilemma here. Another Teapublican rule is that members must oppose anything and everything promoted by the Obama administration regardless of its merit. Michele Bachmann is the Tea Party champion when it comes to obstinence. If Barack Obama suddenly switched parties and became a Republican, Bachmann would become a Democrat. How else can you explain her shocking opposition to this proposed tax relief? In her typical over-the-top and nonsensical language, Bachmann said that the Obama breastfeeding initiative amounts to a “new definition [of] the nanny state.” She told Ingraham,

“This is very consistent with where the hard left is coming from. For them, government is the answer to every problem. I’ve given birth to five babies and I breast fed every single one of these babies.To think that government has to go out and buy my breast pump for my babies? You wanna talk about the nanny state, I think you just got a new definition.”

Fade in, the sound of crickets. Michelle Bachmann makes as much sense as Sarah Palin did when, on her reality TV show, the former ex-quitting half-term Governor of Alaska criticized the First Lady for advocating a healthy diet. Bachmann, Palin and their ilk are simply imbeciles. They fail to understand that when the government promotes a healthy life-style, it is not forcing or coercing members of the public to engage in one. When Predident John F. Kennedy famously said, “ask what you can do for your country”, he was not forcing America’s youth to seek government employment. Indeed, the government’s promotion of a healthy lifestyle is no different than the government’s issuance of storm preparation procedures prior to a hurricane. In these instances the government is simply looking out for the people’s best interests by suggesting (not commanding) a plan of action.

Michele Bachmann and Sarah Palin could each use a refresher course in junior-high civics.

Bonus: If you would like to read how Michele Bachmann was finally forced to admit that the Republican House has no ability to defund the new health care reform law after she lied all through election season that it could be defunded, click here.

Foxy

But they’re just a couple of hate-mongers
Foxy

Fox makes them feel at home
Do they have any charm? No!
But they’re on all the time, prime-time
Ooh, Foxy ladies

Foxy
Foxy

Palin, she’s just so spiteful and mean
Ooh, Foxy
She makes us wanna get up and scream
Foxy
And Michele Bachmann now
Has just lost her mind
They’re both just wasting all our precious time
But Fox thinks they’re fine, so fine
Foxy Ladies
They’re so dumb

Foxy
Foxy
Foxy
Foxy

Yeah, just listen to them drone
As they sound they’re alarms, Whoa
Fox says they are so fine, prime-time
Foxy ladies

They’re just dumb ladies
We’d love to forget ya
Foxy ladies
You’re both no good
Yeah, Foxy
You’re both so dumb
Foxy
Sour lemonade
You’re spreadin’ fear. Yikes
Night and day on Foxy
Foxy
Foxy ladies
Foxy ladies

  1. Twits, the two of them. And here we go again, abortion = evil, but the living, breathing children – no need to focus on them, right? Thanks to the government’s suggestion, we recently had an energy audit done on our home, and thanks to the INCENTIVES of tax credits and utility company rebates we installed new doors, a new oil burner, hot water heater, even HVAC. In addition to lower utility bills, the tax credits, rebates and discounts were in the neighborhood of $5000. No one forced us to do this, but had there not been a program offering credits and such, we probably would have lived with our creaky doors and furnace.

    Nothing like a financial benefit to fuel the power of suggestion

    • You know, I thought of the abortion issue when I read her quote about having 5 children and the nanny state.

      Not only did you benefit from the audit, but the contractors who did the installation, also, too.

  2. Thanks for the excellent comment and example of government being helpful.

  3. Billionaire Babies

    “This is very consistent with where the reactionary right is coming from. For them, tax cuts for the rich is the answer to every problem. While the Bush administration was running huge deficits, the very patriotic and self-reliant Koch Bros managed just fine- no whining at all! To think that the Supreme Court has to go out and make it easier for special interests to buy elections? You wanna talk about the nanny state, I think you just got a new definition.”

  4. Seems Palin caught flip flopping… As Gov she issued a proclamation declaring October 2007 Breastfeeding Awareness Month. Yeah but now that Mrs Obama supports the same thing, well flippety floppity flip. As Keith O always said: that woman is an idiot.
