Can the Daily Caller get any dumber than this?

Who knows, maybe Tucker Carlson's insightful operation will soon top this effort. But for now, this piece by Alex Pappas suggesting Obama, a grown man, is a hypocrite because he eats food while his wife crusades against childhood obesity, may go down as one of the dumbest things ever.

And no, I'm not exaggerating about the simplistically dumb premise of the article. See for yourself:

Michelle Obama has a fat list of 70 ways to promote healthy eating, but keeping her husband's fingers off the hot wings apparently isn't one of them.

That's because President Obama, in western New York to talk to folks about the economy and hold a town hall meeting, made a quick pit stop around lunchtime to the legendary Duff's Famous Wings in Cheektowaga, NY. to chomp down on five regular, and five extra spicy, Buffalo wings.

Behold the front-page Daily Caller headline for the article:

Hungry, hungry hypocrite
The Daily Caller posted an article accusing the president of being a hypocrite because he eats food. Specifically, because he ate chicken for lunch on Thursday. Like I said, I'm not sure Carlson's crew can top that in terms of sheer idiocy. But if they do, I'll let everyone know.
