The Republican National Committee (RNC) yesterday sent President Barack Obama a cake for his birthday, and inscribed on it, “You Didn’t Bake This,” a reference to the President’s comments that success is mutually attained.
Of course, the President didn’t bake that cake — obviously — and in stating the obvious, the RNC both endorsed the President’s vision, and proved themselves, well, ignorant in the humor department.
When you twist someone’s words to make them mean something they didn’t say or mean, and then you re-use them in another context that supports their original meaning, well, the joke’s on you.
“But the Democrats sent the cake back,” The Hill reported:
“This is typical of Mitt Romney’s approach to the middle class,” DNC spokeswoman Melanie Roussell told The Hill. “He wants to ‘Let them eat cake!’ while robbing them blind. We sent the cake back to the RNC, along with a copy of the Tax Center’s report on Mitt Romney’s tax plan.”
