which is totally freaky, right?
But I found myself nodding in agreement when she said that Boehner has been sobbing like a baby in a way that would never work for a female Speaker.
And then there's the cookie thing.
You know, she's been saying that the government needs to stay out of our kitchens and cafeterias and complaining that newly signed child nutrition legislation means we're living in a nanny state where parents can't bring cookies to school. Her characterization of the legislation is totally wrong and stupid, but I am with her on the cookie thing. Sometimes, kids should have cookies. I say this because Ben and jack went to a preschool holiday party for Jack's class, and they brought super cute snowman and santa frosted sugar cookies. That were never served at the party. Ben found them boxed up on the back of the stove and got one for Jack, who was asking if he could eat them and share them with his friends. WTF? And it's not like these people were food purists-- they gave the kids HFCS-laden fruity Cheerios, and they offered HFCS-filled Aunt Jemima syrup for the pancakes and had non-organic blueberries. All things I wouldn't normally feed my kids but also wouldn't shun if brought to a party I was hosting.
Cookies? At a party? Way out of line, I guess.
Here's Jack dressed up for the big day:
