One of the most amusing, and distressing, elements of this election cycle has to do with food. Taking the dictum “you are what you eat” to its most absurd, some leading pundits have criticized Obama for daring to be healthy.
At a time when America is in an “obesity crisis,” critics have said Obama is elitist for daring to eat “green vegetables” instead of processed food. He has been called “out of touch” for trying to stay in shape during a grueling election cycle.
Eat junk, Obama. Be American.
