Well, it seems that Michele Bachmann has added another flub to her long list of flubs. What did she do, you ask, that so irked Iowa voters? Did she say that gay persons were dropped on their heads as babies? Did she admit that President Obama is a Christian? Did she cast aspersions on Jonnie Marbles’s aim?
No, she did something far more egregious: Michele Bachmann ate breakfast at the wrong diner!
Joe Kimball reports at MinnPost that Bachmann spurned a long-standing tradition tradition when, instead of breaking her fast at the Hamburg Inn, she chose to eat at the Bluebird Diner in Iowa City.
Shocking, I know!
You see, every presidential candidate eats at the Hamburg — that’s just how it goes. Reagan did, Clinton did, and dozens of others have as well.
To add to Iowans’ horror, the Hamburg Inn is an old-school, wood-paneled greasy spoon that serves up good ol’ eggs and hasbrowns — I presume it gets its foodstuffs from the back of a Sysco truck. Whereas the Bluebird Diner is, wait for it, a hipster joint that advertises it’s locally-sourced food.
