That’s… not a euphemism. The kids are smuggling pepper and salt into the schools, and selling it*.
Geez, guys, keep it down. What’s gonna happen if some other administrator – one with more slavish devotion to the ill-thought-out nutrition guidelines peddled by the Obama administration than good sense – sees this, and starts cracking down on the pepper suppliers? Will all those poor kids – whose plight, again, is solely the responsibility of the Democratic party – really thank you for letting the cat out of the bag?
During a hearing before the House Subcommittee on Early Childhood, Elementary, and Secondary Education, chaired by Rep. Todd Rokita (R., Ind.), a school administrator told Congress of the “unintended consequences” of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.
“Perhaps the most colorful example in my district is that students have been caught bringing–and even selling–salt, pepper, and sugar in school to add taste to perceived bland and tasteless cafeteria food,” said John S. Payne, the president of Blackford County School Board of Trustees in Hartford City, Indiana.

So, this goes out to the researchers trying to work out why there was a sudden and dramatic anti-Democratic surge in your 21 to 28 voting population, well, it’s because of stuff like this:
A chicken patty, small scoop of mashed potatoes and carton of milk aren’t enough to sustain a high school boy.
But under the school lunch regulations championed by First Lady Michelle Obama, that’s what Haskell High School served recently.
Haskell High School senior Darrel Bunch took a photo of one of his recent skimpy school lunches and sent it to Fox 23.
“It’s mostly the portions,” Bunch says. “Last year we started getting less food.”

Full disclosure: I feel awful today. Vaguely half-nauseous, having what we will gently call ‘digestive issues,’ generally logy and possibly congested: it seemed like an excellent time to take it easy. It would take a definite electoral disaster to pierce this fog of illness, in short.
And Michelle Obama delivered.

Not turning out to be a good week for proxies of the administration:
- Topeka: “First lady Michelle Obama is scrapping her plans to deliver a graduation speech for high school seniors in Topeka, Kan., after hundreds signed a petition in protest. Instead of delivering a graduation speech, Obama will speak before the school district the day before graduation, and will deliver remarks at a “Senior Recognition Day.”” (Via Instapundit)
- Oklahoma City: “Attorney General Eric Holder canceled an appearance before the Oklahoma City Police Department’s graduating cadet class Thursday amid angry protests over his scheduled visit.” (Via @warriorwoman91)

This was not particularly smart to do.
That’s it. She’s right and her husband is wrong. And he is going to find out precisely how wrong he was, just as soon as they semblance of privacy…
PS: As for the handshake… screw it, we should just declare victory in Cuba over SOMETHING and normalize. Because Fidel Castro is apparently just living to spite us at this point.
I couldn’t have come up with a better metaphor for this administration if I tried.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – In the famous White House kitchen garden, tomatoes are rotting on the vine. Herbs have gone to seed. And the sweet potatoes – a favorite of President Barack Obama – have become worm food.
It’s another impact of the government shutdown, one that only the fox and the many squirrels that live on the White House grounds could love. Continue reading White House kitchen garden, like all unfunded agitprop exercises, now going to seed.
They’re STILL using this ad? Swear to God, it just popped up on my sidebar:
I mean, I figured that when it first came out that this rather… unfortunate… ad would last just as long as it took for somebody to realize that somebody screwed up. Rampantly. But here it is, exposed in all of its glory. That said ad is still running shows that it has impressive staying power, in its way… but now I’m wondering whether the Obama campaign is kind of hoping that somebody on the Right will decide not to handle this with care, and a delicate touch.
Not to pound the point home, but if that’s true then it’s no way to treat a First Lady.
No. Really. That’s what she said.
“Join Michelle and tell Barack you’re in.”
“Are you in?”

You know, a couple of days ago RedState reported on a quote-unquote ‘grassroots’ organization that was planning to picket a developer’s house in opposition to Wal-Mart.. If that sounds familiar, that’s because you’re remembering the 500 epic heroes of SEIU who gathered together last year to terrify a fourteen-year-old kid as part of their unionization drive. Are these the same types? Probably: if we’ve learned anything over the last two years, it’s that the Left doesn’t have the first clue of how to run a functional, legitimate populist movement. That’s half of the resentment of the Left towards the Tea Party, right there*.
Still, let it never be said of me that I’m not willing to help out fake activists: so if they’re looking for a too-outspoken private citizen to scare, I got one for them. She’s not just a Wal-Mart ally and supporter. She’s a stay-at-home mom with two kids – girls, so that should be extra exciting for a certain sort of “protester” – so they’ll have an audience for their anti-Wal-Mart fear-mongering.Her first name is Michelle, and her home address is One-Six-Zero-Zero Pennsylvania Avenue:
