Juicegate: Day Two

Suicide orange juice attacking the World Trade Center

Media Matters breaks the story that is almost too hot to handle:

On Hardball, while remarking on Sen. Barack Obama's reported request for orange juice after being offered coffee at an Indiana diner, David Shuster asserted: "[I]t's just one of those sort of weird things. You know, when the owner of the diner says, 'Here, have some coffee,' you say, 'Yes, thank you,' and, 'Oh, can I also please have some orange juice, in addition to this?' You don't just say, 'No, I'll take orange juice,' and then turn away and start shaking hands." Host Chris Matthews agreed, "You don't ask for a substitute on the menu."

Why won't Barack Hussein Obama drink coffee? You know what they call people who don't drink coffee? Mormons, that's what! Now let's dig a little deeper. Our crack WNDU team is on the case:

Obama has breakfast at Sunrise Cafe
South Bend, IN

Barack Obama is not just hungry for votes. Before leaving South Bend Thursday morning, Obama made a surprise stop at the Sunrise Café.

The Illinois senator dropped in for a quick glass of orange juice and impromptu meet-and-greet with customers.

Obama sat at a booth with a steelworker whose plant was shut down, and a woman whose factory was moved to Mexico.

The customers and restaurant workers were all excited to see the presidential candidate.

“It was exciting he shook hands with everybody, introduced himself sat down and talked with people about what was going on. It was nice, got autographs, pictures,” said Jill Hunt.

In a show of generosity, Obama even broke out his money clip and picked up a diner's tab.

You know what it's called when people who have money buy stuff for people who don't? Communism, that's what.

I expect this kind of idiocy from Tweety, but what the heck has happened to Shuster? Maybe he got too much attention during the Valerie Plame thing (which he covered admirably). Too much air time = swollen head?

He had such potential. I hate to see him fall into MoDo-style idiocy.

Well, and I hear he can't bowl for shit. Which is proof that he's an elitist nancy.
