Jim Treacher at the Daily Caller had a find that is pretty funny, considering Team Obama has spent the last several weeks knocking Mitt Romney for once driving with a dog on the roof of the car. In the book Dreams from My Father, Obama revealed that as young boy in Indonesia he totally one-upped Romney:
“With Lolo, I learned how to eat small green chill peppers raw with dinner (plenty of rice), and, away from the dinner table, I was introduced to dog meat (tough), snake meat (tougher), and roasted grasshopper (crunchy),” the president wrote. “Like many Indonesians, Lolo followed a brand of Islam that could make room for the remnants of more ancient animist and Hindu faiths. He explained that a man took on the powers of whatever he ate: One day soon, he promised, he would bring home a piece of tiger meat for us to share.”
Mmm, mmm, mmm!
And of course the fact that the right is having some fun with this story is causing some on the left to accuse conservatives of inventing a “Muslim dog eater” meme, but they’re the once who invented the meme because nobody ever said anything about that. Project much?
In closing, it was probably a bad time for Joe Biden to say this about Obama: “This guy means it, he feels it, he tastes it.”
