UPDATE: The second quote below (with references to swimsuit models and Alex Rodriguez) is not from the Congressman, as I first reported, but from Rush Limbaugh.
Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (pictured above) was reportedly overheard saying of Michelle Obama:
She lectures us on eating right while she has a large posterior herself
And Rush Limbaugh put it like this earlier this year:
The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn’t look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice…I’m trying to say that 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.
So, basically the “problem” is that she is an actual human being and not emaciated or like a photoshopped alien. Being an insanely hot human woman like the unqualifiedly glamorous and gorgeous Michelle Obama is just not good enough, so she must have a “bad diet”. She needs a “good diet” like anorexia or bulimia.
She needs to stop bulking up with all that vigorous exercise. She needs to stop having babies or go back in time and have never had her kids. Or change her genes. And stop aging. You know, lest her body ever changes from that of a 21 year old childless Scandinavian model.
In a nation filled with eating disorders and body hatred, we get people like this ignorant Congressman, who himself looks like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man (pictured below), in power bashing a brilliant, buff, and beautiful woman like Michelle Obama for having the gall to combat childhood obesity.
