I absolutely love this.

First Lady Michelle Obama now wants people to drink plenty of water.

And Republicans are refusing.

I have to buy into a cruzo conspiracy theory here.

Republicans, or "Real Americans" TM, refuse to support ANYTHING the Obamas support.

So now, Republicans oppose not only health care and eating healthy -- but also drinking water.

This is a devious plot by the Obamas to reduce the average life expectancy of a typical Republican to just 17 years.

From where are you pulling your information about Republicans refusing? I don't see it in the link.

As a Californian, I could see some short-sighted folks' objecting to the Nestle connection. However, the bottles are made from recycled plastic and are recyclable themselves. They're also -- refillable with tap water! So perhaps a corollary campaign would be in order, encouraging people to refill.

Frankly, Aquafina and Dasani bottles hold up better for an infinite number of tap-water refills, while Nestle bottles are so flimsy, they even make terrible flower vases.

This was tongue in cheek....

check some of the comment sections on this story -- and other sites that carried it.

If the Obamas are for something -- the right is automatically against it.

Of course it was

"was tongue in cheek...." But the "right is automatically against it" part has become so natural for us it's de rigueur at this point.

Which brings to me another installment of The NYT Borowitz, and how frighteningly close he comes to the truth:

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Sen. John McCain (R-Arizona) was harshly critical today of President Obama’s nationally televised address about Syria this week, telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, “The President’s decision to think before attacking another country flies in the face of American foreign policy.”

“The United States of America has been involved in countless armed conflicts since this great nation was founded,” Mr. McCain said. “Many of those would never have happened if we’d stopped to think about them first. Sadly, the President seems not to have learned this lesson of history.”

Calling the President “an Ivy League law professor who never met a thought he didn’t like,” Mr. McCain said that he was urging Mr. Obama “to please take thinking off the table.”

“The stakes for America couldn’t be higher right now,” he said. “Our global reputation for rushing into war with no advance planning is hanging by a thread.”

Mr. McCain said that he is attempting to schedule a meeting in the Oval Office, where he plans to deliver a “strong and clear” message to Mr. Obama: “Mr. President, what you are doing is playing into the hands of the enemy. Thinking solves nothing.”

Maybe we would be all better off if republicans stopped drinking water.
