Today’s outrage: Romney said something insulting about cookies or something

posted at 4:36 pm on April 19, 2012 by Allahpundit

The bad news: It’s only mid-April and not only are we averaging one new outrageous outrage per day, they’re getting progressively dumber. This one will be hard to beat but stay tuned tomorrow. The good news: The more of these point-and-sputter fiascos there are, the more coverage there is of the political “outrage” industry and the savvier voters become about tuning it out as manufactured crapola. I’m seeing many more meta-stories lately in political media about the contrived nonsense involved in pushing “I’m offended” narratives and sustaining them for electoral advantage. That’s all to the good. The more the public dismisses them as campaign-orchestrated ploys, the less incentive there is to engage in them in the first place.

But in the meantime, here’s the outrage du jour. Says Jim Geraghty, “Man, it’s just going to be dogs and cookies in the news until Israel and Iran go to war, huh?”

Romney met with local residents Tuesday at an outdoor roundtable event at the Bethel Park Community Center. He guessed that a plate of cookies set on the table was from “a local 7-Eleven bakery or whatever.”

As it turns out, the treats were from Bethel Bakery, a longtime South Hills staple known for its signature pastries, cookies and cakes.

“When I heard it, I thought, ‘Oh, my goodness. This guy has no idea how beloved this institution is that provided these cookies,’” said bakery owner and president John Walsh. “We wanted him to be welcomed with the best in the burgh, and he had no idea.”…

“We had a customer on Facebook say, ‘Maybe he’s just used to eating cookies with diamonds in them,’” said Walsh.

Click the image below to watch the clip and you’ll see that Romney’s clearly teasing about the cookies. Even the bakery’s spokeswoman seems to be treating it as a big joke, which makes this a rare Daily Outrage where even the “victim” isn’t pretend-outraged. Otherwise, though, it’s predictable in all particulars: The Democrats are feigning disapproval, conservatives have hijacked the relevant Twitter hashtag and are having fun rubbing liberals’ faces in it, and everyone even tangentially related to the story is looking to capitalize. It’s almost a meta-outrage in itself: No one’s actually offended but everyone knows what to do in these situations, so they’re doing it.

Exit question: Is the Daily Outrage process self-perpetuating? The reason I think campaigns push idiocy like this is because voters are overwhelmed with news in multiple formats. You never know what’ll make it through that wall of information and into their voting consciousness so you’ve got to push everything you have, no matter how minor and moronic. No one will remember this story tomorrow but maybe the attention paid to it will subtly color a few swing voters’ impressions of Mitt. The goal isn’t to convince anyone that Romney hates small business or mom-and-pop bakeries or whatever but rather to convince them in broad terms that Romney’s a jerk, with that conclusion hopefully influencing their assessment of Mitt in various ways going forward. (That’s the strategy behind their obsession with Seamus the dog too, needless to say.) Problem is, the more of these kerfuffles there are, the more they add to the volume of news dumped on voters, which means campaigns feel even more pressure to kitchen-sink their opponents with every dumb, possibly damaging story available. Politics in the age of new media — catch the fever!

Cindy Munford on April 19, 2012 at 4:40 PM

Again, flailing against nonexistent “outrage” here. I’m not seeing anyone being outraged. They’re making fun of Romney because he doesn’t know where the damn cookies came from.

Pretty soon I’m gonna lose my cookies with all the mindless blather the Dims can drum up.

Why should he know where the cookies came from?

I have to imagine most people just tune this garbage out, especially this early in the campaign. I’m a political junkie and even I’m starting to burn out on this.

changer1701 on April 19, 2012 at 4:45 PM

This is hilarious. Seriously hilarious. I’m sure if he says it’s a beautiful day, Axelrod will tell us he just insulted yesterday. THIS is precisely the kind of excess those who don’t pay attention will notice. Keep ‘em coming.

At least it wasn’t schnouzer-doodles he was insulting.

Portia46 on April 19, 2012 at 4:45 PM

Since when is knowing anything about cookies, the eating kind, a presidential run requirement?

Schadenfreude on April 19, 2012 at 4:45 PM

This stuff in a vacuum is stupid. But it builds a narrative when they turn up over and over. I like to fire people. I put my dog on the rood. I don’t like local bakeries. My wife has 2 Cadillacs.

George Bush got hammered for looking at his watch during a debate and the supermarket scanner thing. Didn’t matter how stupid the “controversies” were, they stuck because they built upon the meme that Bush was an out of touch president who didn’t care about the common man.

All these little tidbits on Romney could have the same effect painting him as an aloof billionaire.

angryed on April 19, 2012 at 4:46 PM

And Michelle Bachmann mentioned Obama and tar baby in the same sentence as well… then again, she’s not in contention any more for the presidency.

Never-the-less, liberals will be outraged!

Someone here just said someone is an aloof billionaire. The person he is referring to is a millionaire. That’s the problem with libs, they don’t know the difference between billions and millions and they are fine racking up trillions.

Huh? I certainly didn’t give Newt any crap over that. He bought his wife expensive jewelry and paid for it out of his own pocket in full. I thought it was a non-story then and I feel the same way now.

Now the Greek cruise was inexplicable however since it occurred during a period when the dude should’ve been out campaigning.

Doughboy on April 19, 2012 at 4:55 PM

It’s almost as if he could recognize a homebaked cookie if he saw one. I wonder why if he’s such a rich fat cat? Maybe that slacker never-worked-a-day-in-her-life Ann had something to do with it.

Wrong.
Looks like Mitt was right.

“There are bakeries dedicated just to delivering and making fresh baked goods every day, 365 days a year, for 7-Eleven stores. So we were very amused, because he got it right.” Chabris added that, to show Romney what he’s missing, 7-Eleven is even going to “send some [cookies] to his campaign headquarters in Boston so he can try them out.”

New theme for Romney’s campaign: Grow up, People! We’re $16 trillion and rising in debt and these morons are talking about dogs in carriers on cars and cookie source insensitivity. Campaign by paper cuts? Anything to avoid the elephants in the room. Debt, deficits, unemployment, the housing bubble, F&F and now Hookergate in the Secret Service, to name a few. How about a series on the size of 16 trillion, powers of 10, comparable measures, such as the number of meters in a a light year. And how about the stupidity of expecting a tax on millionaires to pay it off?

The kinds of people who travel on vacation across country with their families, in cars, where they have to buy their own gas. Maybe cars with specially made carriers on top for the family pet.

You know what kind of people think Seven-Eleven doesn’t sell cookies and that you can only buy cookies at special bakeries?

The kind of people who travel by jet for family vacation and have someone else buying the gas. – Separate jet for the dog that they havent eaten yet.

I wonder what cookie would make the best dessert after a meal of dogmeat.

Lmao. Doggie biscuits.

I had no idea that this was even a topic of discussion until I saw this thread…so chances are most Americans are just as unaware.

Normal people do not bother with stuff like this.

I agree, Romney IS outrageous as a GOP nominee.

New ad for Romney. Romney picks up cookies, smiles takes a large bite and says, “I just love the taste of these cookies, but I sure wont woof them all down” while leaning down and petting his doggy.

I’ve never in my life heard of a convenience store selling cookies- what planet does this guy live on? Do you really become this disconnected from the real world when you make a certain amt of money?

Oh the irony.

Let me guess: you buy all your groceries at Whole Foods and you’ve never entered a convenience store in your life. Am I right? Be honest!

I don’t have kids either and have never watch that program. But it is a name of ‘cookie monster’ I have heard of. I was just trying to make a point of the endless everyone needs to say something in these ever lasting issues of non-issues?

BTW all our convenience stores around here has cookies for sale and I have gotten them. They are pre-packaged, but actually good. But I live in TX and we are SO outta touch here don’t you know?
