We wouldn’t be doing our due diligence if we didn’t bring you at least one bizarre food story from CPAC. Last year, it was Sarah Palin invoking the Big Gulp to make a statement about Bloomberg or nanny states or something. This time around, Paul Ryan ganked a story about how a poor kid said he didn’t want government subsidized lunch, but rather his own lunch in a brown paper bag from home, so that he would know he was loved. Attention, deficient parents: sending your kids to school with brown paper bags will clear up any and all mommy/daddy issues!
Anyway, the story was from a book, not a real life anecdote told to him as a politician, and, as it turns out, both the kid in the story and the author of the book advocate for subsidized school lunches, but you know what? It’s a lot more fun to watch Jon Stewart poke holes in the story. Check out his coverage from The Daily Show below.
