Earlier we discovered that people at state fairs love frying anything, especially butter. While most have found the heart-stopping fair food repulsive, one brave American isn't afraid to voice her support for heart disease inducing food!
Sarah Palin couldn't be more "excited" to take eat fried butter and take a bite out of President Obama's debt ceiling plan in the process.
In preparation to resume her One Nation bus tour, she emailed her supporters to inform them she'd be making a stop at the Iowa State Fair and wrote:
"I'm excited to try some of that famous fried butter-on-a-stick, fried cheesecake-on-a-stick, fried Twinkies, etc. I'll enjoy [the fried food] in honor of those who'd rather make us just 'eat our peas.'"
The "peas" part is in reference to the President's speech about the debt crisis, in which he said:
"It's not going to get easier. It's going to get harder. So we might as well do it now: Pull off the Band-Aid, eat our peas."
We had no idea the government thought peas were THAT bad! LOL!
In fact, we don't think peas are no where near as dangerous to democracy as brussels sprouts! Ha!
Her remarks also mimic her unfavorable sentiments against Michelle Obama's anti-obesity campaign launched this past year.
We're sure this is another ploy to convince her supporters that she's just one of the "folks", but we really hope that Sarah realizes that people eating fried food regularly is one of the biggest contributions to America's unusually high obesity rate!
Contrary to Mrs. Palin's belief that big government is forcing Americans to eat their vegetables, we want the country to know it's okay to eat peas!
