Michelle Obama goes shopping for "certified organic Tuscan kale"

The Washington Post has this:

Let's say you're preparing dinner and you realize with dismay that you don't have any certified organic Tuscan kale. What to do?

Here's how Michelle Obama handled this very predicament Thursday afternoon:

The Secret Service and the D.C. police brought in three dozen vehicles and shut down H Street, Vermont Avenue, two lanes of I Street and an entrance to the McPherson Square Metro station. They swept the area, in front of the Department of Veterans Affairs, with bomb-sniffing dogs and installed magnetometers in the middle of the street, put up barricades to keep pedestrians out, and took positions with binoculars atop trucks. Though the produce stand was only a block or so from the White House, the first lady hopped into her armored limousine and pulled into the market amid the wail of sirens.

Then, and only then, could Obama purchase her leafy greens. "Now it's time to buy some food," she told several hundred people who came to watch. "Let's shop!" . . . .

Et tu, WaPo?

Their elitist behavior is so egregious that even the Post had to say something.

Ain't that just so precious...a little run over to the farmer's market for some organic veggies...just like every little hausfrau with 24 people on staff...

We aren't Zimbabwe yet, but I can see Michelle importing lobsters for Barack's birthday. Nothing is too good for our Obamas, and we should celebrate their presence in our lives everyday.

And what did that cost the taxpayers? I bet Obama could have insured all the legitimate uninsured with that cost.
