Even in something as benign as a Christmas party, the White House simply cannot manage to stay away from the stupid.
Most Christmas cookies are shaped like angels, wreaths, snowmen, Christmas trees, and other holiday items. But Fox News reported that at Monday’s annual Christmas party, the White House served cookies shaped like acorns.
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.
Whether inadvertent or deliberate, this is just bizarre. If inadvertent, it reinforces the impression that this administration is appallingly tone-deaf on even the appearance of propriety, particularly in matters of protocol.
And if deliberate, it’s an unprecedented slap in the face to the entire nation, and an ill-considered support and flaunting of an organization that appears to be riddled with corruption.
This administration is rapidly becoming the unfunny punchline to a bad joke. And it’s nobody’s fault but their own.
