While striving to give the appearance of connecting with regular folk, Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, awkwardly began to articulate his amazement over using a touchscreen to order ingredients for a sandwich.
Fox News will assuredly report on touchscreen-gate for weeks, just as they did with the President using…mustard. After the breaking news that Obama — just a month or so into his Presidency — had the unmitigated gall to put mustard on his hamburger, Limbaugh, Beck, et al, had virtual orgasms over the ‘scandal’. The blogosphere buzzed with the Obama’s eeeeeevil use of mustard.
Laura Ingraham asked: “What kind of man orders a cheeseburger without ketchup but Dijon mustard?” Certainly impeachment proceedings were conjured up in their partisan minds — after all, the only conclusion one could come to after the President publicly used mustard is that Obama is a traitor to America.
I’m sure the ‘fair and balanced’ cable news station will be all over this — what kind of man orders ingredients for his sandwich using a touchscreen? Egads man, it’s just not done.
I take it that Mitt has never been to Burger King or ordered a Big Mac, where orders are placed using touchscreens.
This is basically a non-story, but the hypocrisy from right wing media outlets is amusing.
