Wholly Foods

Hi-Ho, The Derry-O

When Michelle Obama didn't have any certified organic Tuscan kale on Thursday afternoon...

"The Secret Service and the D.C. police brought in three dozen vehicles and shut down H Street, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I Street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station. They swept the area, in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs, with bomb-sniffing dogs and installed magnetometers in the middle of the street, put up barricades to keep pedestrians out, and took positions with binoculars atop trucks. Though the produce stand was only a block or so from the White House, the first lady hopped into her armored limousine and pulled into the market amid the wail of sirens."

Meanwhile the rest of America tightens their belts and pulls in the purse strings because BO's policies are wrecking our economy.

A diminishing tide lowers all boats except for those of the elites. They'll still get their certified organic Tuscan kale and Kobe beef. Why? Because they can.

Let the unwashed masses eat macaroni and cheese from a mix.

Damn, I hate when I run out of certified organic Tuscan kale. I mean what else can you serve with Kobe beef?

In the menawhile we are bieng told to conserve energy. Where's Algore

Steve Harkonnen said...

Spoiled bitch.

Ananda girl said...

Wow, I'd like to shop with her at Christmas... no waiting in line, crowds or santas ringing bells.

cube said...

Lee: Yeah, the really cheap one.

Jan: There's Maine lobster, but that's so seasonal ;-)

Chuck: algore's carbon buttprint is only marginally smaller than the current inhabitants of the WH.

cube said...

Steve Harkonnen: The trashiness of the nouveau riche can be quite outlandish.

Ananda Girl: Way to find the bright side ;-)

Don't let the armpit hair sway your opinion of mrs. leader. She has many duties and probably didn't have time to shave the pits.


cube said...

Wouldn't it have been cheaper to have some white house staffer go pick up the required veggies? Sure, but that wouldn't have provided the photo op fix MO needs every now and then.

cube said...

Lee: I'm not touching MO's armpit hair issue for various reasons... EWWWW being the main one.

Z said...

she needs an interpretor for the deaf to go SHOPPING?
And, MAN, has she taken to the lush life quickly.
Cube, before I clicked on the link, I thought you'd written that little bit 'tongue in cheek'...IMAGINE if Mrs Bush had taken this much people/cars/, etc. to go to a nearby market????????

MO is going to have a hard time going back to the life of a commoner in 2012.

Always On Watch said...

What an incredible and gaudy display of elitism on the part of MO!

As one local to the DC area, I heard about the effect on traffic for the rest of the afternoon and evening. Sheesh!

cube said...

Z: They certainly know how to live well on our dime. Nothing's too good for them.

Laura Bush would've been crucified in the press for doing something like this. Remember the flap over Nancy Reagan's new china for the WH?

Brooke: Yeah, the unwashed masses
need to get out of the way of her highness.

RightKlik: From your keyboard to God's ear.

AOW: Very declasse, like when she wore $600 sneakers to a homeless shelter. And they were uglier than OJ's Bruno Magli shoes!
