Most Republican senators choose to speak at a post office opening, a county GOP fish fry, or the local Rotary club pancake breakfast. Meanwhile, the junior senator from Kentucky is hanging out at Howard University, Detroit and now the University of California at Berkeley.
Delivering a rare speech for a Republican at this bastion of liberalism, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday was given multiple standing ovations by the left-wing audience after railing against government surveillance and warning the students: “Your right to privacy is under assault.”
School children aren’t the only ones recoiling from Michelle Obama’s healthy food initiatives. White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses has resigned, with the New York Times claiming that Michelle is “partly to blame.”
An accomplished New York chef, Yosses was originally hired by Laura Bush to make his famed sugar art, fruit soufflés and cookie plates. But when Michelle took over, she instructed the dessert master to make healthier treats and smaller portions. She also strictly reduced the number of desserts served to the first family.
According to the Times, Yosses replaced butter with fruit purées, replaced sugar with honey and agave, and replaced modern flour with whole grain and heirloom versions.
