|Sixteen million American children live in poverty. Many go hungry.|
Republicans see a family of 4 on SNAP receiving a handout from the government of $668/mo., or $5.56/day each, and recoil in outrage. "What the hell! Our fossil fuel industry only receives upwards of $52 billion a year, and that has to support the whole damned industry!"

One of the things that irks Republicans the most is Michelle Obama's eat healthy program. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) demands to know, "Who's she to tell us how to eat?! Look at her big butt." Clinically obese, Sensenbrenner objects to the First Lady's initiative on two counts: (1) he's not about to give up beer and brats, and (2) he's trying to pass a "nutrition reform" bill that will make "eating healthy" impossible for 16 million American kids.
