The good news: The obesity cavalry has been called in.

The bad news: They broke the backs of their horses.

From the Detroit News:

Rachael Ray, the peppy television cooking queen, met with Sen. Debbie Stabenow, D-Lansing, this afternoon to chat about child nutrition and obesity.

The stop at the Michigan senator’s office came on a tightly scheduled nutrition-themed tour of Capitol Hill, during which Ray — who rose to fame through heavy backing by TV mogul Oprah Winfrey — was slated to meet with other influential female lawmakers, including Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y.

I’ve met Debbie Stabenow, and trust me, she’s in no position to be making decisions on how other people should lose weight. Frankly I’m not surprised that Jupiter is missing one of its belts, because I think I saw Debbie using it to hold her pants up.

If Stabenow’s doing anything to fight obesity, it’s that she’s devouring everything in sight so there isn’t any left for the rest of us.

And Rachael Ray? She’s not at “obese” but she looks like she’s a plate of pasta primavera, a handful of marshmallows and a mild bout of depression away from getting there.

It seems like it was only yesterday that Rachael Ray was peddling “crack for kids” as the celebrity spokesperson for Dunkin Donuts. Wait, it was only yesterday. Oh well, Michelle Obama was on the Board of a snack food company, so I guess it’s alright.

As soon as Debbie and Rachael have an anti-obesity plan in place they’ll run everything by Michael Moore (or slowly walk it by him anyway) just to make sure he’s on board with the methodology.

    Debbie Stabenow looks alot like Mrs. Doubtfire, Doug. I hope Ms. Ray brought a plate full of meatball "Sammies" for her meeting along with a gallon of EVOO !

    I canceled my subscription to Rachel Ray's magazine after she promoted Blowhole Gore and his movie, An Incontinent Truth on her show.
    I do regret comparing her ass to those of the poor desperate polar bears in my email to the publisher.

    As we continue to grapple with Obesity, a question that is not getting too much attention is the role Alternative systems of medicine like Ayurveda can play in controlling / curing obesity. A system based on Nature can not be all that bad :-)

    Call me a chubby-chaser, but I'd be lying if I told you I wouldn't do Rachel Ray.
