Because the Obamas weren’t getting quite enough media coverage, they’ve decided to also take over the Food Network:

First Lady Michelle Obama has challenged Iron chefs Mario Batali and Emeril Lagasse to a Super Chef Battle at the White House. The Iron Chef stars will be pitted against White House executive chef Cristeta Comerford, and Bobby Flay. The two-hour special will premier Sunday January 3rd, 2010 at 8pm. In true Farm-to-Table style, the challenge will involve creating a meal for America with the White House Kitchen’s local produce.

The show has already been recorded. An insider tells me that the cooking went well… until the meal was served and the president bowed to the King Crab and tried to borrow money from the Peking Duck.

Is it a Freudian Slip when Emeril Lagasse refers to President Obama as “the Chairman”? I got kind of a creepy Mao vibe there — it’s either that or Emeril thinks Sinatra still hangs out at the White House:

    It's too bad the Clinton administration didn't think of this first. They could have had a blast with bubba and his cheeseburger addiction.

    I would have paid to see bubba try to control himself while being in the same room with Giada de Laurentiis and her constant cleavage.

    Mama mia. That's a spicy meatball.

    Is there not one damn program I can watch that does not directly refer to Obama? Good grief – I am going to have to start watching "Turn The Tub Around" karaoke channel 24/7 just to get away from these people! Ugh!

    Does Giada have cankles? I think Bill likes the hefty bottom girls so Giada might be safe.
