There’s just no stopping Mama Obama. The first lady has successfully wangled her way into school cafeterias, but that wasn’t enough. Now she’s praising textbook publishers for “swapping out cupcakes for apples in math problems.”
According to the “Let’s Move!” blog entitled “Cookies 2 Carrots,” the White House “celebrated a group of educational publishers on their development of voluntary guidance to incorporate health information into textbooks and other learning materials.”
Who would have thought that the positive impact of portraying Christopher Columbus as an ambassador of atrocities against indigenous peoples could be upstaged by eliminating cupcakes? Thus, in the American public school system, carrots, LGBT sensitivity, free birth control, and Obama chants are in, while cupcakes, couch potatoes, prayer, and patriotism are out.
