The Cookie Monster: Sarah Palin Tackles the Issue of Sweets in Schools
Maybe after her new show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, is over, the former governor and VP candidate can get a show on the Food Network. Because there's every indication that Palin will be tacking food next. Or rather the government's policies on food.
"Who should be making the decisions what you eat and school choice and everything else?" Palin asked students at a Pennsylvania school recently. It was not, one hopes, a class on public speaking. Palin had arrived bearing cookies, a "gesture intended to show her disapproval of a state proposal to limit the sweets served in public schools," reports Bloomberg Businessweek. So while Michelle Obama is busy campaigning against childhood obesity, Palin is demonstrating that we all have the constitutional right, it seems, to bear guns, shoot wolves and eat cookies at school. Awesome.
