The Acorn Doesn’t Fall Far From the Christmas Tree

White House’s Acorn Cookies Surprises Republican Lawmaker
Article: Fox News

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.

The chocolate cookies shaped like an acorn were quite a hit with Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa.

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

President Obama worked with the community organizing group ACORN in the mid-90s. But now ACORN faces a host of allegations related to voter fraud in the 2008 election and has been weakened by an undercover expose that shows employees offering tax advice to a couple posing as a pimp and prostitute.

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 ACORN.

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-Mich., 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, a reference to Clinton’s denial of the Lewinsky scandal . “But from the man who wrote ‘The Audacity of Hope,’ we were served the very redefinition of the word ‘audacity.'”

      Just another way to spit in the face of the American people.

      I’m going to make turd-shaped cookies and bring ’em to an Obama-bash. I hear they don’t even check you out before you can enter an Obama par-tay…
