If Mark McGwire Grew Vegetables...

Is anything really “real” in the Obama administration?

We know his appointees don’t really pay their taxes. But then again, it only happened to 8 of them, so it may have been coincidence.

Doctors being given white coats to wear while on the front lawn of the White House.

Stimulus jobs that don’t exist, or are from non-existent congressional districts.

Promises to hold health care negotiations on CSPAN that evaporate into thin air.

Party crashers with fake invitations.

The teleprompter. Always by his side, the teleprompter.

Now, even the vegetables are fake.

The Jan. 3 “Iron Chef America” drew 7.6 million viewers was the highest-rated show in network history. In it, superstar chef Mario Batali teamed with Emeril Lagasse, and Bobby Flay with White House chef Cristeta Comerford to cook five dishes using the secret ingredient: produce from the White House garden.

Except for one thing: As first reported on AOL’s Politics Daily blog, the fruits and vegetables used on the show weren’t from the White House. They were stunt produce. Ringers.

At the beginning of the two-hour special, the chefs were shown picking sweet potatoes, broccoli, fennel and tomatillos from the White House garden. Then the chefs were seen walking into Kitchen Stadium, produce in hand. One problem: The show is filmed in New York City.


But now we are supposed to believe that the “savings” in Medicare to help pay for Obamacare is going to be real. Sure it is. The tooth fairy will deliver it, using Santa’s sleigh in the Christmas off-season.


  1. The Rock is delivering our healthcare?

  2. I just don't even know what to say about the state of our government. How anybody can look at the cast of characters in Congress, the cabinet and the White House (elected and appointed) and not want to either a) apply for citizenship in Luxembourg, b)find a militia to join, or c)actually start working to vote these cretins out of office for a change, is beyond me. The stuff our illustrious president and congressional leaders are doing is the kind of laughable where you start guffawing until you finally find yourself in the fetal position weeping uncontrollably as you relize these idiots are running our country!

  3. Czabe, it's even worse than that. Months ago, it was reported that the vegetables in the garden aren't even edible. The garden was fertilized in the Clinton era with sewage sludge that contaminated the area with lead and other toxic metal poisoning. All of the footage of Historic Michelle (everything about them is described as historic) is just kabuki theater.

    So let's summarize this administration:

    The stimulus doesn't stimulate.
    The transparency is opaque.
    The health care savings cost more money.
    The banned earmarks are ever present.
    Tax increases aren't confined to just the rich.

    It's clearly amateur hour at the White House and on Capital Hill. Time to take the country back.

  4. If the pubs win the Massachusetts senate seat, this will send a shiver down the dems spine and maybe they'll back off.

    How can Obama claim to be against Wall Street excess and banker bonuses and at the same Time keep Tim Geithner as Treasury Secretary?
