Sensenbrenner was expressing an understandable irritation with Michelle Obama, but he picked the wrong angle. The most prominent negative feature of Mrs. Obama (other than being Mrs. Obama) is her ego. She should not be telling us how to eat - not because of her appearance, but because of her holier-than-thou, Michelle-knows-best, I'm-the-important-president's-wife-so-you-should-listen-to-me reason. Michelle Obama embodies Big Government: she is the typical ruling class elite making rules and "suggestions" for the rest of us on every detail of our lives without our consent.
