Barack and Joe in Kokomo?
Blog Guy, recently you revealed that you work as President Barack Obama’s Junk Food Advance Dude, helping him find the best high-cholesterol foods in the country. I don’t get it. He’s the president. Can’t he order any food he wants?
Oh, he tried that, but he quickly found out most carry-out places won’t deliver to Air Force One. It’s better if he just picks the stuff up himself.
Okay. I just saw photos of Obama and Vice President Joe Biden buying doughnuts at some bakery in Indiana. Now, you can’t possibly know every good bakery in…
Let me stop you right there. I grew up in Indiana. I KNOW my Midwestern pastry.
A few months ago I decided Obama should try the apple fritters at the Gingerbread House Bakery, in Kokomo.
I described them to him in great detail, and I said, “But Mr. President, can we get you there?” Then he grinned and replied with his famous catch phrase, “Yes we can.”
Then what happened?
Well, fast-forward through a massive auto industry government intervention, billions of dollars, revitalized factories in Kokomo, and voila! Suddenly, Obama is picking out doughnuts just where I wanted him to be.
Wow! So to the casual observer it looked like he just happened to stop in for a treat, but behind the scenes….
Now you’re catching on. The best Junk Food Advance Dudes make it all look so natural.
