Rush Limbaugh attacks Michelle Obama's diet

Rush Limbaugh turned Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign into fodder for a radio show diatribe today.

Limbaugh was reacting to a report from Colorado which mentioned that the first lady ate ribs at a restaurant during her skiing holiday there this Presidents Day weekend. He said this was evidence of Obama's hypocrisy around food.

"The problem is, and dare I say this, it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice. And then we hear that she's out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving."

According to the Vail Daily, Mrs. O went to Restaurant Kelly Liken in Vail Village on Saturday night, "dining on a pickled pumpkin salad with arugula and a braised ancho-chile short rib with hominy wild mushrooms and sauteed kale."

Limbaugh continued, "I'm trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you."
