Michele Obama, Smartest First Lady in History, Implores us to Drink More Water

Yes, Michele "Evita" Obama made a taxpayer-funded visit last Thursday coincidentally (or not coincidentally) to Watertown, Wisconsin, to claim that we all should drink more water:

WATERTOWN, Wis. (AP) -- First lady Michelle Obama led Wisconsin high school students in a toast to "the best drink in town" Thursday as she launched a campaign to encourage people to drink more water - something she said was the single best thing Americans could do to improve their health.
"Water is so basic, and because it is so plentiful, sometimes we just forget about it amid all the ads we watch on television and all the messages we receive every day about what to eat and drink," Mrs. Obama said. "The truth is, water just gets drowned out."
"Water just gets drowned out" get it? HaHa! Nice one Evita!

Just one thing Evita left out of her campaign about her assertion that drinking more water is the single best thing anyone can do to improve their health. It's not true:
"There really isn't data to support this," said Stanley Goldfarb, a professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. "I think, unfortunately, frankly, they're not basing this on really hard science. It's not a very scientific approach they've taken. ... To make it a major public health effort, I think I would say it's bizarre."
The science of drinking more water wasn't the only questionable thing Michele Obama asserted on her Watertown visit. Just like the leftist she is, she asserted that water is "free":
 So we saw firsthand that water is truly the original energy drink.  Plus, water is almost universally available.  You can find it anywhere, and it’s free.  You can find it in schools, in parks, shopping malls, even in your own kitchen sink
 Try this out: Run down to your city hall with this quote in your hand and tell them the first lady Michele "Evita" Obama said your water is free.  Or try not paying the taxes that support the water supply in your schools and parks. And does Michele honestly think that the mall's utility bill isn't built into the cost of their leases which is, in turn, passed on to the customer?

Bottom line here: Evita could find better things to do with her time than try to get us to drink more "free" water. Thanks Michele, but we're all perfectly capable of making our own decisions about how much water to drink (or not to drink).
