News Roundup for 1/20/11

Michelle Obama takes another life

-Headline of the day-
"Safety Group Accidentally Touches Off Accusations That Michelle Obama Is Killing Pedestrians."

Michelle Obama wants you to get up off your fat ass -- and die.

At least, that's how the rightwing blogosphere is framing a report by the Governors Highway Safety Association that pedestrian deaths had risen slightly last year. "A focus on liveable communities, or 'get moving' health and fitness programs may increase walking and pedestrian-vehicle conflicts," the report says. It doesn't say a damned thing about Michelle Obama.

Still, The Daily Caller, a "news blog" set up by former rightwing bow tie addict Tucker Carlson, posted the headline, "Highway safety spokesperson blames pedestrian deaths on Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity campaign." After it was pointed out that this was complete bullshit, DC added a question mark to the headline. Needless to say, this isn't any better, since the only people asking the question are DC and the nuts who take it seriously.

"That makes it seems like we're blaming Michelle Obama's program," GHSA executive director Barbara Harsha told TPM. "That's ridiculous."

Yes, it is ridiculous. But that's the rightwing blogosphere for you. (Talking Points Memo)
