It started out innocently enough as just another $30,000 trip to the local ice parlor but when confronted by a number of choices the president deferred his flavor selection to congress where his dessert became bogged-down in committee due to partisan wrangling. GOP lawmakers preferred a more aggressive flavor such as Bear Claw while the democrats said the current political climate called for French Vanilla. White House communications director David Axelrod said the president was committed to making a decision but it was too soon in the ice cream purchasing decision process to endorse such tangy flavors as sherbert. Sen. Ted Kennedy’s office released a statement calling on the president to bring back a pint of Rum Raisin.
Homosexual rights advocacy groups said that, while they were heartened by the president’s willingness to explore his numerous options in fudge flavors the distinct lack of rainbow sprinkles was cause for concern due to the message it sent to the balance of American society about where the president stood on gay rights issues.
