Cookie Cutting (by guest blogger Julia)
Hopefully the Orlando NAACP chief who recently switched to the GOP doesn’t go through what Maryland Lt. Governor Michael Steele went through when he was running for the Lt. Governor position in 2002: his Democratic opponent’s supporters came to a debate with boxes of Oreo cookies, and reportedly started pelting them at the black Republican candidate. The message, of course, being that real black people can only be Democrats.
But if it does happen again, Republicans should know that Oreo is keeping up with the times. They developed a new cookie called White Fudge. Because if you can’t be black and be a Republican, then you can’t be white and be a Democrat, or else you’re acting black. Let the pelting ensue.
