They're calling it "Dijongate," and it's one of the most spectacular barometers of absolute deranged clinical insanity you're ever seen. Let's start with the video:
wherein you can hear one Barack Obama asking for mustard thusly:
"You got, like, a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that?"
Seriously, go back and watch the video again until you're convinced that those were his exact words. I'll wait, because this is important.
Now, let's see how NBC reported it:
"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."
At which point -- and I am not making this up -- the conspiratorial idiocy began.
And if you've managed to survive this far, well, the comments section here will give you the clearest window into the potential ugliness of the human psyche you're ever likely to see, without actually reading Patrick Ross.
P.S. Even the Star can't quite believe what's happening here.
P.P.S. Read the comments at Kate's place. Seriously. These people are what restraining orders and prescription pharmaceuticals were invented for.
AFTERSNARK: At what point will the residents of Dumbfuckistan start claiming that it was all a joke, just satire, and man, we leftards sure got suckered by that? You know it's coming.
