On Thursday, Limbaugh confessed he didn't give a tin shit about eating right:
"I'm gonna tell you the truth, folks, I don't pay attention to any of this health stuff."
But Friday, just 24 hours after confessing his own ignorance, Limbaugh lambasted "Moochelle's" lack of qualifications on nutrition:
But again, I have to ask a question. And I may be the only one with the guts to publicly ask it. Who made her the expert? Don't give me this first lady business. So what? Being first lady means that she is qualified to design a school lunch menu for the whole country? What experience? What's the resume say that her experience track record in this field is? She's got two girls? That's right, she's got two girls and a garden, that's all you need. That's right, okay, and she's first lady. She's the wife of Barack. So Barack knows more than anybody about the health care industry. Barack knows more than anybody about coal. He knows more than anybody about energy. He knows more than anybody about taxes. He knows more than anybody about creating jobs.
These people don't know diddly-squat. They are the least qualified that you could find who are otherwise educated to be in charge of anything. I know they won elections, or he did, but seriously, why is she in charge? I know first ladies have to do things and they've gotta be altruistic or charitable or, you know, like learning to read or don't do drugs or whatever, but seriously, what are her qualifications?
We've got kids all over the country claiming they hate the menu; they're not eating it; they're going home hungry. Okay, so her arms are toned and she knows about exercise. Do you think Michelle is hungry? Do you think her kids are hungry? Hell, no, and hell, no twice. Say what it is. No way her kids are hungry and no way she's hungry, right? But if you're Michelle Obama and if you are convinced the country has a morbid obesity problem among the youths, isn't the point that they should be hungry? Sorry, folks, you can't go on a diet without being hungry. There hasn't been one made, unless they can give you some speed to suppress the appetite. A little Ritalin here, a little Adderall, you never know, nice little side effect. But outside of that there's not a diet that does that.
If you're gonna lose weight, if you're morbidly obese you're gonna have to face the consequence you're gonna be hungry. But we don't want the little children to suffer. But, anyway, that's not what this is about. This is Michelle, she knows better than anybody else about healthy foods 'cause she has a garden. Big whoop. You know, the proof's in the pudding. When her husband gets the chance to eat the way he wants to eat, what does he do? He heads to these Five Guys burger places and gorges on triple decker cheeseburgers and fries and he takes heads of state with him. He doesn't care. They probably got him eating berries and twigs and leaves and everything, too, and he's probably starving. That may be one of the problems.
Let's be honest, Rush. What is it that REALLY bothers you about Michelle Obama's attempt to tackle the rampant obesity problem that has Americans driving scooters in Walmart?
I believe I've narrowed it down to several things--just not quite sure about the order.
1) She's a woman
2) She's black
3) She's a Democrat
4) She's right (as in correct)
5) You weigh around a triple C note and dine on deep fried foie gras on a stick three times a day and would prefer not to look in the mirror.
