    The Last Straw! or, The Last Gingerbread House

    White House Pastry Chef resigns.


    White House losing pastry chef Bill Yosses in June

    Yosses has said he was dubbed "The Crust Master" by President Barack Obama, who had a weakness for just about any fruit pie the chef turned out. Last Thanksgiving, for example, the Obama family and guests had their choice of six varieties of Yosses' pies — huckleberry, pecan, chocolate cream, sweet potato, banana cream or coconut cream.

    At Christmas, the roughly 300-pound gingerbread White House painstakingly crafted by Yosses was a holiday tour highlight.

    Yosses said Mrs. Obama, who leads a nationwide effort to reduce childhood obesity, stoked his interest in the link between food and health. After she became first lady in 2009, his instructions were to make smaller, more healthful desserts.

    It's unfortunate that we've come to have to advocate such a joyless eating experience, but that's just the state of things, I suppose. If we were to increase physical activity as a whole we could mitigate much of the damage bad food contributes.

    This is news? What's next, are we going to get a story on how one of the white house janitors,grounds keepers or some other employee left?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why not news? You could have read it, and moved on, but you bit the bait, now you're in.

    I thought maybe some cons would jump on this story and say something like "well you know, everybody hates Obama, and they're jumping ship like a bunch of rats".

    Cons already dissed Obama for a number of things, like they're Putin leg humpers or something.

    A pastry chef leaving is not simply not a big deal.Its not a actual government position.

    There are some die hard Obama bashers, not really any different than when Bush was president and all the die hard Bush bashers did the same thing.

    This does piss me off when they do this ****. I know fox has been running with the "Putin just punked Obama so Obama better do something mantra. Its as though they want another conflict or war or at least want America to spend billions of dollars to make Russia sorry. So **** Russia, **** the Ukraine, they can eat a dick for a all I care.American does not need to make every country its bitch or get involved in the affairs of every country. When Bush was president I do not remember conservatives giving a rats ass what the world thought of us.

    Michelle just left a SSM couple with one less income. The Obamas really do hate Gays!

    Don't even get me started on the guy in the copy room.
    He touched her over her bra and underpants, she says, and guided her hand to touch him over his underwear
