The iron logic of the great nanny state

Nanny FLOTUS Michelle Obama has spoken and she agrees our greatest national security threat is obesity.

On a related front, nanny NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg is battling drinks larger than 16 ounces.

And under Barack Obama’s incredible nanny-like leadership, more Americans than ever, 46 million, are receiving food stamps and the Administration wants even more to go on the dole sign up for this important safety net program.

See if you can tease out the disconnect in the great nanny state’s iron logic. I think it’s how it manages to hit the intersection of irony, cluelessness, hypocrisy, and I-know-what’s-good-for-you elitism, that is, do as I say and not as I do; pay as I say and not as I pay.

About Professor Mockumental

I enjoy almost all forms of parody, buffoonery, and general high-jinks. Satire has shown itself to be an essential societal need; I therefore humbly offer my services in such a manner. I enjoy mocking the usual suspects at the New York Times (Charles Blows, Moron Dowd, and the earth is flat guy) and Washington Post (Dana Milkbag, E.D. Dijon, and David Ignoramus). There are many others as well, but sadly, there are always too many targets and too little time.
