Liberals and food

My liberal husband still hasn’t forgiven me for pointing out that the MSM deleted from it’s coverage Obama’s request for poupon at a burger joint, nor can he understand why I (and other conservatives) find the request both telling and amusing.  These things matter very deeply to the liberals.

Tom Elia points out that, just today, Maureen Dowd was all atwitter about the Obamas’ eating habits.  My response to Tom was that, with regard to the food thing, if you’ve read Jonah Goldberg’s Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Change, you’ll remember that fascists are obsessed with diets as a means of creating the perfect citizen for the perfect state.  His major example, of course, is the Nazis, with Hitler at the top of the food-control chain.  I am not saying Obama is a Nazi, but there’s no doubt that extreme liberalism feels a strong need to control people’s eating habits.
