Acorn Cookies?! The White House Is Nuts

Ob. Nox. Ious.

Any fan of Cookie Monster on Sesame Street knows that “C” is for cookie.

But at the Obama White House, “A” may be for acorn. As in acorn cookies served at Monday’s annual Christmas party.

Chocolate cookies shaped like an acorn were quite a hit with Rep. Steve King (R-IA).

ACORN is a is community organizing group that helps low-income families with housing and economic assistance. President Obama worked with ACORN in the mid-nineties. But now ACORN faces a host of allegations related to voter fraud in the 2008 election.

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 of ACORN.

“I didn’t expect to see such stark symbolism,” King said in an e-mail.

King pocketed several of the acorn cookies at the White House soiree and even stowed a few at home in his freezer. King even delivered a real acorn to House Judiciary Committee John Conyers (D-MI) in an effort to launch a dialogue about the organization’s legal woes.

“Bill Clinton redefined a two and a three-letter word,” King said. “But from the man who wrote The Audacity of Hope, we were served the very redefinition of the word ‘audacity.’”
The fact that the symbol of the D party is an ass is unfortunately, due to their behavior, never far from my mind.
