White House beer, no pretzels

Given that “We Lie” is apparently going to be the Rmoney campaign’s slogan, it’s probably not surprising that the usual bogus bake-off between the womenfolk has been ratcheted up a notch. Mrs. Cleaver actually staged a photo op in her kitchen as she whipped up a batch of Welsh cakes (not sure where she hid the help). And then she was brazen enough to hand them out to the gullible stenographers on the plane. I didn’t know you could buy Christmas cookie tins at Costco in August.

One more and I’ll get to the meat, but I have to steal from the best political blogger working this election. Why ever would it be that the presidential candidate has a real “up from hardship” tale to tell about his dad that ends with power, riches and fame, while a token supporter has to admit his immigrant dad “lived and died as a banquet bartender”? Even though he undoubtedly made a mean mojito?
