Get the hell away from my Eggo, jerk…

Why Can\'t I Just Eat My Waffle?There’s no shortage of dumbassery in the wall-to-wall primary coverage, but Time’s Jay Newton-Small seems to have cut himself off an extra big slice regarding a not-really-worth-the-column-inches anecdote about Obama asking a reporter ‘Why can’t I just eat my waffle?’ in response to a reporter’s question about Jimmy Carter meeting with Hamas.

You see, because John McCain would not only not eat his waffle, he’d cut it into bite size chunks, pass it out to the reporters while delivering a series of Buster-iffic (Hey, brother!) backrubs to the press corps, Obama needs to understand that this country needs a leader whose Eggo is less important than Petey Podunk-Picayune/Dispatch’s diminished sense of propriety.

Interesting note: Did you know that ‘From my cold dead hands’ was originally the slogan of the National Waffle Association?
