MICHELLE O. HEADED BACK TO 'SESAME STREET': First Lady to again plug healthy eating and gardening.
EURWEB ^ | 30 September 2009 | eurweb

Posted on 09/30/2009 9:29:01 AM PDT by conservativeauditor

The First Lady will help kick off the 40th year of "Sesame Street" with an appearance on the Nov. 10 season premiere, PBS announced Tuesday.

Michelle Obama will bring with her a message touting the importance of planting gardens and healthy eating. She'll teach children how to plant tomato, cucumber and lettuce seeds as part of the show's new two-year science initiative called "My World is Green & Growing."

"All these seeds need to grow are sun, soil and water. If you eat these healthy foods, you're going to grow up to be big and strong, like me," Obama tells the residents of Sesame Street. "I know you're going to like these vegetables, because in addition to being healthy, they really taste great!"

Will she give the kids sample vegetables from her garden—the one which has been labeled as having unsafe amount of lead in the soil? “But it’s Organic Lead!”

The way for the First Lady to do this is to quietly establish a kitchen garden on the White House grounds, and to maintain it and turn it into a good example of what people can do in their own yards. Then after a couple of years, people can notice that vegetable gardening is a hobby of the First Lady, and there can be stories done about the garden, and how productive it is and how much enjoyment it provides along with the vegetables.

In this way, the First Lady can be an example to others and have a great effect.

Instead, we get a phony-baloney garden that is used as a prop on the first day and promptly forgotten, only to be pulled out of mothballs from time to time when a quick poll-enhancing photo-op is required.

Healthy eating for thee, but not for me -- I'll remember this little appearance the next time I get the rundown of the 0bama meal from the restaurant, the load of sodium, fat content, the dessert she allows her children to ingest, etc.

I am no food-nazi, frankly, I don't care what anyone eats, that's your business and not mine. But I hate hypocrisy, it makes me crazy-nuts.

We have a lot of newbies linking to their own sites just for hits - quite often when a brand new member starts posting articles they either fall into the afore mentioned catagory or are retreads. I apologize if you are legit

Is there some food rule that says you can't like vegetables, as well as burgers and fries?

While I'm no Michelle Obama fan, it seems to take derangement to a new level when you criticize her for helping kids plant a few seeds.

funny, when I watched it as a tyke I seem to remember Oscar the Grouch as being fuzzier. And not as black.

yup, there you go. That’s what liberal science is all about: Darwinism and environmentalism

When my oldest was little, she watched Sesame Street. I personally liked Oscar and also The Count. I was sad to learn that the libs ran the place, figured indoctrination was a sure bet at some point, and haven’t seen it since.

The constant harrassment for “green” everything is getting tedious. Most conservation that is needed is common sense, doesn’t require constant warnings by Hollywood types and in TV shows for kids. I am sure Sesame Street is green all the way.
