I Just Had Some Bipartisan Ice Cream

August 24th, 2008 . by economistmom

New at Baskin-Robbins, just in time for the conventions (thanks to my BR-employed daughter, Allie, for calling my attention to it)…  Click on the photo for a closer view of the descriptions…

They’re both really good, even together in one dish.  Go try some and practice bipartisanship!

    I expect the McCain campaign to soon issue a strongly-worded statement, immediately supported by all McCain partisans, expressing outrage over the clear derogatory implications Baskin-Robbins is making:
    - “Crunch” meaning McCain will get “crunched” in the election.
    - Referring to the Republican party as “mixed nuts”
    - White chocolate as a clear implication that McCain is a racist.

    And the Obama campaign will soon issue a strongly-worded statement, immediately supported by all Obama partisans, expressing outrage over the clear derogatory implications Baskin-Robbins is making:
    - “Peanut-nougat” obviously intended to create a subliminial phonetic association with Obama as the “the-nut-new-guy”.
    - That Obama is “brittle”, but is supposedly shielded from harsh criticism because he is he is “chocolate-covered”

    And both sides will demand that Baskin-Robbins immediately cease this blatant partisanship!

    Allie,

    I was just kidding around. I was making fun of all the extreme partisanship out there (people being unreasonable and misinterpreting things and overreacting whenever they think someone has insulted the candidate they like).

    I just noticed that Allie had posted her comment (she didn’t tell me, and she’s out at a party now). She doesn’t think that anyone could joke around on her mom’s boring blog…
