Hot dogs, fish sticks, and juice boxes
NBC’s regular news reported Obama’s order as follows: ""I’m going to have a basic cheddar cheese burger, medium well, with mustard," Obama said. "Do you have spicy mustard? I’ll take that."
Actually, the quote was "you got a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that" (at 0.55 of the unedited video below without Mitchell’s talkover).
Obama ordered his burger with DIJON MUSTARD! Bet he had to seek John Kerry’s counsel on that.
Jesus. Between this and their obsession with arugula I sometimes wonder if we’re actually talking about four year-old children who make "icky" faces when confronted with something new to the menu. What makes this worse is that Jacobson is Professor of Law at Cornell Law School and therefore, we assume, an adult or at least an adult-sized human. How embarrassing for his wife when they attend faculty dinners and she has to bring along chicken strips and ranch dressing so he’ll have something to eat. Hopefully she has drawn the line, no matter how fussy he gets, over bringing a baggie of Cheerios for him to nibble on during cocktail hour.
