Tough Cookies

Mitt Romney had another one of his what planet are you from moments yesterday in the Keystone State. (I love state nicknames and fling them about with abandon whenever I get the chance.)He was handed some cookies made by a local baker and, well, insulted the baked goods:

I don’t know about your neck of the woods but in mine 7-Elevens don’t bake cookies. It is, however, noteworthy that Mitt has actually heard of 7-Eleven. What’s next? Mocking Stuckey’s pecan logs? Actually those are kinda scary and eminently mockable since they look like turds…

Weird Mitt has violated rule number one of the campaign trail: if someone hands you food, pretend that it’s yummy or as the Mittster himself might say delightful. The good news is that the Bethel Bakery’s business is booming post Romney weirdness. I bet you $10K that If this had been anyone else but Weird Mitt nobody would have noticed…

Stay tuned for another episode in the continuing adventures of Weird Mitt and the little people…

    That’s the number one rule of ANYTHING. When someone gives you a gift, even if it’s a hideous light-up reindeer sweater, you SAY THANK YOU AND PRETEND TO LOVE IT. Because it is a GIFT.
    Manners, people. Jesus. Was he raised by wolves?

    There’s a marketing campaign in this: “Mitt hates `em… so they’ve got to be good.”

    I’m a little surprised that the SS lets Mitt eat anything that hasn’t been thoroughly cleared.
    And what about the slur to 7-11?

    @A: Yeah, you right. I’ll never forget the time one of my father’s Greek-Greek relatives gave my folks a kangaroo paw corkscrew. My mom’s eyes bugged out but she still smiled and was gracious. I, on the other hand, had to stifle a guffaw.

    Sounds like you deserve 10Gees just for being honest.
