Obama’s Corndog Fiasco Equals Woe for Midwest Democrats

Hogs Butte, IA (GlossyNews) — On the campaign trail with Norbert B. Snortwhistle. In a giant miscue that could cost Democrats even more Congressional seats this November, President Obama revealed he is “no big fan” of corn dogs, a favored food in the Midwest.

“I eat a lot of chili burgers back in D.C.” the President said at a fundraiser near Des Moines. “But corn dogs, no thanks.”

Stunned Democrats on Capitol Hill clamored for a White House Corn Dog Summit, but administration officials downplayed the President’s remarks.

“Like many Americans, the President enjoys a good corn dog from time to time,” said Press Secretary Robert Gibbs. “Additionally, the President recently reminisced about bowling, an activity corn dog lovers seem to enjoy.”

But Republicans jumped on the President’s gaffe, while desperate Democratic candidates in the Midwest scrambled to distance themselves.

“The American people are tired of elected leaders who sip Chardonnay and nibble on crackers,” said GOP House leader John Boehner. “It’s time for a mouthful of pork rinds.”

“I eat corn dogs and I drink beer and believe me I need your help,” pleaded a local candidate at a dusty county fair. “Barack Obama is not running in Hogs Butte, Iowa.”
