But Michelle Obama decided to make it her purpose in life (figures) but according to this Washington Post article her visit to the farmer's market resembled nothing less than a Queen's passing to honor the peasants.
Cowbells were rung. Somebody put a lei of marigolds around Obama's neck. The first lady picked up a straw basket and headed for the "Farm at Sunnyside" tent, where she loaded up with organic Asian pears, cherry tomatoes, multicolored potatoes, free-range eggs and, yes, two bunches of Tuscan kale. She left the produce with an aide, who paid the cashier as Obama made her way back to the limousine.Plus she left a huge carbon footprint. Gotta love those limosine liberals.
