I know, you are shocked....absolutely flabbergasted.
Anyway, here are the Wasilla Grifter's latest set of gaffes. (USA Today 12/21/10)
In her TLC show Sarah Palin's Alaska, the former GOP vice presidential nominee is seen opening cupboards in search of chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers, asking "Where are the s'mores ingredients?"
"This is in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert," Palin said.
Palin has not been shy expressing her views on the first lady's initiative. In an interview with conservative radio host Laura Ingraham, Palin said Obama "is telling us she cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat."
Here are some facts about the medical consequences of obesity from WebMD.
The health problems associated with obesity are numerous. Obesity is not just a cosmetic problem. It's a health hazard. Someone who is 40% overweight is twice as likely to die prematurely as is an average-weight person. This is because obesity has been linked to several serious medical conditions, including:
* Heart disease and stroke.
* High blood pressure.
* Gallbladder disease and gallstones.
* Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea (when a person stops breathing for a short time during sleep) and asthma.
The morbid irony of this is that Palin's irresponsible babbling could actually help the Democratic Party in the long run if her sheeple take it seriously. Democrats and Independents don't listen to her at all. So, the only people whose behavior might be influenced by the egomanical Ms. Palin are rightist Republicans.
If enough other Goppers join her in this babblethon, they could lower the life expectancies of Republicans. The other obnoxious rightist Ann (Althouse), has joined in. So have Faux News, NewsBusters, and the bizarrely named Weasel Zippers.
There already is a stereotype in our society of Republicans being morbidly obese. If Republicans go out of their way to live up to that stereotype, it will be the undoing of many of them.
