Eating His Way To Freedom

This was pointed out to me from a faithful ally of the Royal Court. It is too funny:

Last weekend Barack Obama once again revealed his anti-Americanism when he told a crowd, "We can't drive our SUVs and, you know, eat as much as we want and keep our homes on, you know, 72 degrees all the time, whether we're living in the desert or we're living in the tundra, and then just expect every other country is going to say OK." Hey, maybe Barack can speak for the Muslims who won't eat as much as they want. But Milwaukee Journal Sentinel columnist Patrick McIlheran is sick of you arugula-scarfing elites telling him and his family what to eat. And his trip to some Jewish restaurant in New York proves he's right, somehow!
The best part? It's not even a local blogger who wrote it. The National Patrick McIlheran Appreciation Day has truly gone national!

You can read the rest of the post here. Also read through the comments. Apparently, the native New Yorkers are too impressed with McIlheran's enthusiasm. Two of my favorites:

(yawn) call me when this dude chokes down 50 McRib sammiches for freedom.

"So, we figured, if we're overpaying for dinner, why not do it for something we can't get at home? We marched the kids into a kosher restaurant. And indeed, the prices looked high."

um, after a simple google search, I came up with multiple kosher restaurants in the Milwaukee metro area, not including "kosher-style" delis.

conclusion: Patrick McIlheran is an anti-Milwaukeesemite

You gotta love it. New York Style Whallah!
