Conservative Web Site’s Comic Displays Michelle Obama As Fat & Angry

Michelle Obama‘s has been working hard on building a healthy America through her Let’s Move campaign. No matter what political preference you have, this is something that should be commended across the board.

Unless you are conservative Web site and Republican propaganda machine BigGovernment.com.

The site has decided to poke fun at the Obama’s and the First Lady’s efforts by creating a cartoon that depicts Michelle as an overweight, burger-loving, angry individual. While most cartoons usually takes a part of an individual and over-accentuate it, BigGovernment just completely re-wrote who Michelle Obama is.

Rather than champion a movement for a healthier America, the far right have decided to malign her entire approach by creating a childish cartoon that completely skews her character by making this about the government controlling our lives. It’s no surprise that Andrew Breitbart—the blogger who published the heavily edited Shirley Sherrod footage—is the mastermind behind the cartoon. He’s all about destroying characters and molding them into his own vision of what Democrats are.

“Michelle Obama’s work on nutrition issues has gone beyond the normal First Lady advocacy into the realm of shaping national policy, so, on this issue, I think she is fair game for criticism,” he said.

Never mind the fact that America houses the most obese people in the entire world, right? Obesity is clearly not healthy. But conservatives are more intrigued with the concept of disagreeing with Democrats—specifically, the Obamas.

What are your thoughts on the cartoon? Are we overreacting?
