The Obama Diet — Not Just Arugula

The “people’s ticket” ordered a little snack from room service at the Waldorf, as the N.Y. Post’s page Six reports:

While he was at a meeting at the Waldorf-Astoria at 4 p.m. Wednesday, Michelle Obama called room service and ordered lobster hors d’oeuvres, two whole steamed lobsters, Iranian caviar and champagne, a tipster told Page Six.

I’d guess the bill for that snack came in at around $350. Iranian caviar ain’t cheap — even if you negotiate for it yourself. What the hell . . . Your campaign contributions (soon to be your tax dollars) at work.

Does anyone else remember Gerald Ford toasting his own English Muffins in the family quarters of the White House? Michelle’s style is a little more Leona Helmsley, who’s ad campaign featured a picture of herself in one of her hotels, with the slogan, “a hotel fit for a Queen.”  Can you do that at the White House?
