Sarah Palin's Alaska

Sarah Palin took a shot at Michelle Obama on her Sunday reality show, Sarah Palin’s Alaska.

Sarah PalinSarah Palin took a shot at first lady Michelle Obama's efforts to improve nutrition and decrease obesity in our schools.

During Palin's reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, the former Alaska governor makes s'mores and remarks that the treat is "in honor of Michelle Obama, who said the other day we should not have dessert."

This is reportedly not the first time that Palin has dissed Michelle's campaign to prevent kids from eating fattening foods. She told talk radio host Laura Ingraham that "the first lady cannot trust parents to make decisions for their own children, for their own families in what we should eat."

She also delivered cookies to a school in Pennsylvania and said in her speech: "Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents."

Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" program encourages parents to educate their kids on the importance of diet and exercise and promotes healthy alternatives to desserts. Statistics have shown that one in three American children are overweight.

Whose side are you on? Team Palin or Team Obama?

I cannot express enough how much Sarah Palin sickens me. I wish she would take her s'mores and stick them up her rear-end!!!!!

Palin has borrowed a page from the Michele Bachmann's "Book of Paranoia", seeing phantom government boogeymen in America's pantries and freezers. But it's certainly a relief to know that she will battle Michelle Obama to protect the rights of children to acquire Type II diabetes by the age of 30.

Everyone should look at their own personal life and your family values. Overweight children are the PARENTS fault! Not McDonalds, Wendy’s or some other fast food franchise! You stop at fast food on the way to work, you stop on the way home from work, because you’re too lazy or don’t wish to fix your children a good wholesome meal. You let your children sit in front of the television, watching DVD movies, playing Xbox or some other game and eat food, instead of teaching them about life or school! You blame everyone else for your child’s failure, except yourself. You are their parents, STOP blaming everyone else for your own problems. GROW UP! You should not even have had children unless you plan to take charge of their young lives! Teach them, explain to them, the way they should understand life. Stop listening to the media, take control of your children and your own life!

Silly Sarah! She just doesn't grasp concepts and carries grudges and goes out of the way to knock people. Look at her continuous negative comments about President Obama, Levi Johnston and Joe McGinniss. She just can't let something go--and we certainly don't want someone like that in higher office. Now let's look at her own family: Bristol has certainly packed on the pounds and needs to lose some weight and exercise more. Piper is eating something sweet every week--and seems to make fun of her mom at every chance. Both Willow and Piper are chunky and would not be called trim. I think the entire Palin family would benefit from some advise from a nutritionist-- probably get them some mental health help, too. Apparently both Bristol and Sarah have gone to a plastic surgeon at least twice before--liposuction and breast enhancement (Sarah) and liposuction and breast reduction (Bristol) isn't what is recommended to take care of obesity problems.

I started laughing. I agree with Palin. I don't like this thing MO is on. Most ofthe kids I see overweight are hispanic kids primarily. Most American kids are not OE as these kids. I know from first hand knowledge - working for a nonprofit agency buying back to school clothes for kids. The illegals are the fatest. Ten year olds wearing size 22-24 was amoung the worst. Parents should be the deciding factor on kids diet and lets fact it the parents to most obese kids don't care what they put in their mouth and in fact keep telling them to eat more and more. I have seen it.

Amazing. She doesn't seem to grasp that Michelle didn't say to not have dessert, but to show moderation. Yes, parents should make the decisions and many do. How many are properly informed on how to make those decisions? Stop and think about how many kids are raised on soda/cola instead of simple water or milk? How many parents understand that it isn't healthy to have pre-processed, salty, sugary food for every meal?

If Sarah Palin doesn't understand that we have a eating problem in this country then how can she think she can run it? Parents should make decisions for their family but their not and somebody needs to address it or the medical bills will never stop increasing. Thank you Michelle for bringing to the front a problem some people think doesn't exist.
