Do you remember back in June of this year when the House Democrats conducted a sit-in to demand legislative action on gun violence? If my memory is correct, I don’t think anything came of it and they ended it after a day or so (though I could be wrong… honestly I can remember much about this other than what I’m about to talk about). There were a couple of stories in the media around this time like this one talking about the Senate Democrats bringing food to support their House Democrat friends. Go ahead and click on the link to see pictures of some of the food that came in… candy, pop-tarts, cookies, pizzas, soft drinks, donuts…
Think about this for a minute. Congressional Democrats… DEMOCRATS… D-E-M-O-C-R-A-T-S… and the food they chose were candy, pop-tarts, cookies, pizzas, soft drinks, donuts… not exactly known as “healthy food” (outside of my house). So, I don’t follow politics as closely as I probably should… but even I can tell you that the main “cause” (or at least one of the main causes) of our First Lady (Michelle Obama), who I believe is also a Democrat, is childhood obesity. Now, I grant you that her cause is CHILDHOOD obesity and the story I’m talking about is dealing with adults (who often act like children), but still. I mean, come on… a big part of her message is about eating healthy. So here are the Democrats in Congress, men and women in her own party, and they couldn’t last a day or two with just having healthy food?!?! Really?!?! If it had been Congressional Republicans doing it, I would have just assumed it was a friendly middle finger pointing at the White House, but the fact that it was Congressional Democrats blows my mind. Come on guys! And they TWEETED about it?! At least when Republicans back in the ‘80s were doing drugs, they didn’t tell the world about it. Why? Because they had enough respect for the White House that they weren’t going to crap all over Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No” campaign.
Thank you for letting me get that off my chest. I feel better now.
