Pot Calling the Kettle Fat?

By on Wednesday, February 23rd, 2011

To be filed under no he didn’t!: To reward her for raising awareness about childhood obesity and the general topic of Americans learning to feed themselves better, Rush Limbaugh, that icon of slender dignity (yes, that is to be read with a gallon of high-fructose corn-syrup laden sarcasm), called healthy-looking Michele Obama a fatty. Really. In a story on Salon, Limbaugh reportedly said during his Monday broadcast, “Our First Lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you.” Because that’s what women should aspire to: Swimsuit model status and dating self-centered baseball players. Right on, Limbaugh!
