The White House Serves Acorn Cookies

From Fox News:

Rep. Steve King brandishes an acorn cookie served at the White House annual Christmas party, Monday, Dec. 7, 2009.

White House’s Acorn Cookies Surprises Republican Lawmaker

December 09, 2009

Any fan of Cookie Monster on Sesame Street knows that "C" is for cookie.

But at the Obama White House, "A" may be for acorn — as in acorn cookies served at Monday’s annual Christmas party.

The chocolate cookies shaped like an acorn were quite a hit with Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

"I didn’t expect to see such stark symbolism," King said in an e-mail…

The irony of the White House dishing out acorn-shaped chocolate cookies seemed a little, well, "nutty" to King. The Iowa Republican is one of the loudest voices calling for Congress to investigate ACORN.

King pocketed several of the acorn cookies at the White House soiree and even stowed a few at home in his freezer. King even delivered a real acorn to House Judiciary Committee John Conyers, D-Mich., in an effort to launch a dialogue about the organization’s legal woes.

"Bill Clinton redefined a two and a three-letter word," King said, a reference to Clinton’s denial of the Lewinsky scandal . "But from the man who wrote ‘The Audacity of Hope,’ we were served the very redefinition of the word ‘audacity.’"

At the very best this shows the White House to have a tin ear.

But we suspect it was meant to be ‘in your face.’

They don’t tend to be too subtle in Chicago.

    A very subtle “horse’s head in the bed”!

  2. proreason says:

    Is that chocolate on the Acorn?

    Yes Steve. Subtlety is not the Obamistration”s long suity.

    What do you expect from a community butt puppet?

    The Obamas are simply PURE GHETTO.

    The Audacity of this DOPE!

    It’s Obama’s message he’s still a dog. Noticed he repeats any behavior he receives criticism for, whether it be cash for clunkers to handing out 1 trillion.

    I read that car buyers that took 4,300 cash for their clunker, will have to enclose it as income on their taxes.

    May I say one thing?

    I don’t get it.

    I never in my life had or thought of having or making a cookie in the shape of an acorn or from an acorn.

    And besides, where is that little loop that goes around the acorn in the ACORN logo.

    Stupid and poorly done.

    Maybe it was a six year old’s idea.

    What flavor were they? Look a little like a turd.

    So .. ACORN and o-blah-blah give US the finger (with their little cookies).

    This collection of trash is disgusting beyond limits!!!

    Bet, ACORN sold WH $25 dollar a piece cookies. Like to see the food bill. If they were to send Christmas or American patriotic themed cookies to the troops, the troops would have to toss them for safety reasons.
