Pelosi joins FLOTUS to attack dastardly white potatoes; isn’t that a little racist?

The Obama administration may not be ready to intervene in Iraq, Syria, Nigeria or Ukraine, but it sure is ready to butt in on the daily eating habits of America’s women and children.

The latest bombing run was a mean-spirited harangue by Rep. Nancy Pelosi – that fount of eternal wisdom – on those churlish fiendish Republicans, who want to allow more white potatoes to be purchased by low-income ladies on the Women, Infants and Children program.

The omniscient House Minority Leader scolded the GOP Friday, for living in the Dark Ages and serving as lackeys of “special interests,” in a rant aired on C-SPAN.

Referring to the Agricultural Appropriations bill, Pelosi said, “Republicans are going after the nutrition for pregnant women and children, the WIC Program, mandating that it include more white potatoes. You know – talking about food, vegetables, whole grains and the rest – and they have an amendment that says more white potatoes than nutritionists recommend.” Zounds, how dastardly!

After getting warmed up, she advanced with her nuclear armament. “These assaults on essential nutritional standards are really hard to explain to anybody, but we know they reject science, they ignore cold hard facts and evidence, betray the best interest of America’s families while they protect special interests, so we have to do what is right…”

Indeed, those Republicans are Neanderthals.

Dems can’t even get a Flag Day picture right: ‘Celebration’ turns into mockery instead

Pelosi’s bombast followed on the heels of an OpEd piece by Michelle Obama in the New York Times on May 29, which lambasted the GOP for allowing white potatoes on WIC benefits, because they “increase childhood obesity.”

Obama wrote that “Congress is trying ‘to override science.’ The problem is that many women and children already consume enough potatoes and not enough of the nutrient-dense fruits and vegetables they need.”

Never one to wallow in self-righteousness, it couldn’t be that kids like spuds more than broccoli. She continued in the Times, “This is unacceptable. It’s unacceptable to me not just as First Lady but also as a mother.”

Moreover, she said that “Congress shouldn’t even have the authority to decide what foods schools are serving. Experts should make those rules.”

Yes, like climate change, another closed science. From a lady who said she was never proud to be an American until her husband was elected president.

How lucky is America to have Nancy and Michelle as guiding lights! Republicans are just a bunch of potato-heads anyway.

    Yep she wants more unelected people steppingvtelling what to do and how to live. … hmmm the irish and the UK did fine with mostly spuds and carrots for veggies plus MEAT! Hmmm. Potato Carrots n Cabbage use less WATER. And provide more then just vitamins but carbs all in one. Your broccoli and other veggies they promote Can Not be grown in every state like potatoes, carrots, n cabbage. They require more land and more resources. Sense they are seasonal, that forces more IMPORTS from their FREE TRADE partners….. so we get veggies with shorter shelf life and from places with weaker standards. Your food should change with the seasons…. local foods help you fight off alergens. Food from foreign countries also import bugs from other countries, sickness, and alergens many dont have resistance to fight off.

    Welcome to NWO, once the TPP and European free trade is passed. The USA will have lost everything to the UN who will dictate our FOOD, economy, trade, healthcare, LABOR, education, and take away our rights as they see fit.

    This woman is a lunatic. Why not go after Monsanto for spraying so many pesticides and dangerous chemicals on ALL vegetable. I’m betting cancer from their chemicals kill more people than a freakin potato. Then again, I’m still waiting to make new friends while in the waiting room in hospitals due to Obamacare.

    Where the way ahead is charted by the scouts who tread it first, it becomes easier for the rest of us who may not be so adventurous.

    The loons are all free to talk their crap in Washington but out here in the real world people eat what they like and don’t need anyone to tell us what to eat!

      I would like to tell Moochelle what to eat. How does that bumper sticker go eat @#@# and die.

  6. Beeotchstewie says:

    For God’s sake don’t ask for redskin potatoes. Is it just me or is all this racist PC crap getting way out of hand. Here is the solution. Use Yukon Gold potatoes, not white or red, there are even some with blue flesh as well. I hate people who want to make a racial issue out of everything.

  7. Parker Orfield says:

    It’s because I’m white isn’t it?
