It's all carrots, arugula and cauliflower.
Far be it from me to defend the odious Michelle, but I see nothing wrong with this (other than having a Polka band). The article doesn't say what the time of day for the party is, but if it's at a time when invitees might reasonably expect a real meal, it's good manners to tell them that's not the case.

Barack Obama will require you to dance. He is going to demand that you shake your booty. That you put down your snacks. That you come out of your mastication, that you move away from the buffet. That you push yourselves to be funkier. And that you imbibe. Barack will never allow you to go back to your seats as usual.

Maybe Mooch is on a fiscal diet--the "snacks" and "sips"---you'll get a Ritx cracker and a thimbleful of wine.Somehow I doubt it.
What I get from this is that lobbyists are probably paying for it. That's not allowed if it's a meal, but ”food or refreshments of a nominal value offered other than as a part of a meal" are exempt.http://www.democracy21.org/archives/issues/issueslobbying/correction-of-erroneous-interpretation-of-ethics-rules-that-ban-lobbyists-from-paying-for-meals-for-members-of-congress/
