Sarah Palin Fights The Cookie War

Yesterday, Sarah Palin brought cookies to an appearance at Plumstead Christian School. No, she wasn’t trying to bribe the kids for votes if she runs in 2012. She was protesting big government. “I heard that there’s a debate going on in Pennsylvania over whether public schools were going to ban sweets,” she explained, referring to a set of nutrition guidelines the Pennsylvania Board of Education is considering for school parties. Only, she got the details wrong—what the Board is actually debating is encouraging parents to offer only one sweet per kid at parties and include fruits and vegetables as well. “I wanted these kids to bring home the idea to their parents for discussion. Who should be deciding what I eat? Should it be government or should it be parents? It should be the parents.” Just to drive the point home, Palin also tweeted, “I’ll intro kids 2 beauty of laissez-faire via serving them cookies amidst school cookie ban debate; Nanny state run amok!”

Please don’t let cookies be the new tea. [CNN, MSNBC]
