If you follow politics closely then you know liberals don’t have a sense of humor. Just look at the flack Jon Lovitz received recently for having the audacity to break ranks and add Obama jokes to his stand-up. So when I read that the Republican National Committee sent Obama a birthday cake Saturday for his 51st birthday with the message “you did not bake this” written on the cake I literally laughed out loud!
The Huffington Post reported:
The Republican National Committee mocked President Barack Obama on Friday, sending a cake to the Democratic National Committee with a backhanded message commemorating Obama’s upcoming birthday.
“You didn’t bake this,” reads text on the cake, which is vanilla with vanilla frosting, according to Yahoo! News. It’s a reference to Obama’s “you didn’t build that” remark last month, which he made while talking about the need to maintain investments in domestic infrastructure for the good of businesses.
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help,” Obama said. “There was a great teacher somewhere in your life. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.“
There is not many things better that razzing pretentious liberals and then sitting back and watching them feign outrage and/or deliver a lesson in sensitivity and tone. I have been saying for almost a month since Obama said to business owners “You Did Not Build That” that this reveal is a winner and I am well pleased that the RNC and Romney show no signs of letting up.
UPDATE 5:35 p.m – DNC spokeswoman Melanie Roussell has responded to the Obama “You Did Not Bake This” birthday cake, attempting to draw a parallel between it and GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s politics.
“This is typical of Mitt Romney’s approach to the middle class,” she said. “He wants to ‘Let them eat cake!’
Aha, the Marie Antoinette out of touch class warfare meme. What was I saying about liberals and their inability to take a joke? It’s like clockwork, just took a full day for them to “cook” this one up.
