Leave it Rush Limbaugh to take Kraft Foods' delicious new Triple Oreo product and turn it into a strangely-worded, quasi-racial attack on President Obama.
The radio host is no stranger to making controversial comments, but this diatribe from Wednesday (August 17) was a doozy even by his lofty standards.
"Kraft Foods is going to launch a new Oreo ... It's a Triple Double Oreo. Well, what it's going to be here, it's actually a biracial cookie," he said, adding:
"You've got three chocolate wafers, and then you've got the white vanilla cream, the cream, and then there's a chocolate cream. The Triple Double Oreo."
"You wait, it isn't going to be long before it's called the Or-Bam-eo, or something. Well, it's a biracial cookie, here ... In the midst of all this talk of obesity."
"And, I mean, every time Michelle Obama goes out there and talks about healthful eating, the food industry responds with, 'Oh, yeah? Take this.'"
"And Kraft comes up with the Or-Bam-eo, the triple double-dipper."
Well, there you have it folks. Do you think Rush is using "Oreo" as a racist term for Obama, or just rambling? And how good does that cookie sound??! Discuss.
