(Newser) – Michelle Obama needs to stick to lettuce salads, according to Rush Limbaugh. The radio host labeled the first lady a hypocrite yesterday for promoting healthy eating and then having short ribs for dinner while on vacation in Colorado, the New York Daily News reports. "The problem is—and dare I say this—it doesn't look like Michelle Obama follows her own nutritionary, dietary advice," Limbaugh told radio listeners. "And then we hear that she's out eating ribs at 1,500 calories a serving with 141 grams of fat per serving."

He seems to imply that she could stand to lose a few: "I'm trying to say that our first lady does not project the image of women that you might see on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue or of a woman Alex Rodriguez might date every six months or what have you." Then he flat-out called her "a hypocrite." Limbaugh continues, "Leaders are supposed to be leaders. If we are supposed to go out and eat nothing, if we are supposed to eat roots, berries, and tree bark, show us how." Click here for Sarah Palin's issues with Michelle.
