America needs Rich White Potatoes.... not gay spuds.

"Where in the Constitution does it say the fed. government should regulate potatoes in school lunches? It doesn't."

OK... so I catched-the-ball over at
Tengrain's place... which is a pretty cool spot for humor, snark, neat visual thingees and what-nots.  But anyways... it seems that .....there is a

"The USDA wants to limit the amount of white potatoes used in subsidized lunches for cheap, tasty and unhealthy foods like salty tater-tots, french fries, and "potato bars," meaning baked potatoes stuffed with cheese, sour cream, butter, maybe some chocolate, and so on. It's part of a crackdown on excessive starch, and under the proposal, "school cafeterias would have to limit starchy vegetables such as potatoes, corn, peas and lima beans to a total of one cup per week for lunch,"  I got that from Gawker.

Well shit&whiskers!!!  For one thing... this could be good... iffen it gets old Michele to actually read the Constitution.  And it seems like a good thing for me, too, cause I really like spuds, and gosh... the SCOTUS has just ruled that not only are spuds a really terrific veggie &stuff... they have just as much rights to run campaign ads as corporations, lobbyists, the Koch Bros. and broccoli.  Wowzers..... I am soooooo glad good Michele will defend the good old White Potato....  le
mmee see here.... spuds=good..... gays=bad

On gay marriage: “This is probably the biggest issue that will impact our state and our nation in the last, at least, thirty years. I am not understating that.” — Senator Michele Bachmann
 "I don't know where they're going to get all this money because we're running out of rich people in this country." -Rep. Michele Bachmann

hmmmmm   rich people good, poor people bad...... and we are running out of rich people

I really am glad Bachmann just wants to get things straight (not gay) and is really concerned about veggies (not crackers).  I'm sorry ms Bachmann..... but listening to you.... just sounds like sour cream.

*.... psst, you gonna eat all those fries, or can I have some.  just asking.

Isn't she just like a bowl full of fruity tooties?? Forgive me for I do not know what I'm saying, I'm sleep deprived...

Senator Bachmann?? That is scary sounding, almost as scary as President Bachmann! YIKES!! What is going on in our once great nation? Nobody on the Right is smarter than a 5th grader!

Soylent green is....potatoes!

I think it would be a good thing if the country ran out of rich people even faster.

Just remember ketchup is considered a veggie by this lot.
So what's next lawn clipping as a side dish? That way they could get rid of the yard waste. A win win situation for the schools.

Don't see why the evil socialist USDA is picking on potatoes, we fry everything down here in Redneckland and it does not hurt us, now our heart disease rate is so high its in orbit with the shuttle but all those folks who die are going straight to heaven so that's a winner.

what's the difference between a potato and michele batshit bachmann? michele batshit bachmann is only half-baked!

Sue... it is very apparent that Bachmann does not KNOW what she is saying... it is what makes her so,ah, entertaining.

Randall... it is??? but is it mashed or fried?

Susan... yupperz... but where would we go with them? Maybe they can live with the polar bears on Hudson Bay.

Demuer... lawn clipping salad! what a great idea...with turf builder + dressing... boy, I bet Michele wishes she had thought of that!

Dear Bum... youse guys fry grits too? Heart Disease rate? Is that just the poly-ticians, or NAXcar fans, too?

Nonnie... personally, I think the really difference is that some spuds have personalities. hehehe

If Bachmann had potatoes for brains it would be an improvement. As far as limiting potatoes in school lunches, I get it about limiting fried potatoes, but potatoes don't have to be fried.

Wait until the potato lobbyists from Maine, Idaho and elsewhere get through with this.

SW... I guess the idea was to serve more green veggies and get away from too may fries and processed spuds.... but the crazies are trying to call it a war on potatos. sheesh.
