Palin hasn't taken on Roth directly, but according to Judith Warner of the Times, she did show up with armloads of cookies to protest a supposed Pennsylvania "school cookie ban" (never mind that the district wasn't trying to ban the treats, and the school she visited was private anyway). Glenn Beck, meanwhile, claims the government's health initiatives show the Obamas believe "you're incapable of making decisions. . . . Left to your own devices, you're going to eat too much, you're going to be a big fat fatty." Unlike Beck, I'm generally a fan of Michelle Obama's "Let's Move" initiative, with its emphasis on exercise and improving access to healthy food. But I'm not keen on the idea of turning cookies into contraband.
