Former Fat Person Mike Huckabee Doesn’t Think Michelle Obama Is a Dessert Tyrant

In the warped reality in which Sarah Palin resides, when Michelle Obama says that children should not eat dessert every day because they are all obese and will grow up to get the diabetus, this really means that America "should not have dessert" and that she doesn't "trust parents to make decisions for their own children." Mike Huckabee is actually an expert on eating dessert — he used to be 300 pounds — and said yesterday that Palin is just wrong.

With all due respect to my colleague and friend Sarah Palin I thinks she's misunderstood what Michelle Obama is trying to do. Michelle Obama is not trying to tell people what to eat or not trying to force the government's desires on people. But she's stating the obvious, that we do have an obesity crisis in this country, and if you don't believe it, I always tell people, walk into any third grade class, and look around, and then go back pick up your third grade school class picture if you're an adult, look at that picture and tell me what you see that looks starkly different than what you see today in the third grade. It will shock you.

Good idea, Mike Huckabee! Spending some time in a third-grade classroom would be especially educational for Palin.
