This is why I love The WonketteIs Obama going paranoid? Hummm, so I did a Google search with a time frame between 1/1/1980 and 1/1/2008 and ....... nothing!!! Soooo, did Bill Clinton, either Bush or Reagan have food tasters? I could not find out.
But we do know that Obama had the bolts of the rifles the soldiers were caring in the parade had been removed. It sure sounds like Obama is ...... paranoid!!!
LOBSTER SALAD SUMMIT 3:45 PM MARCH 15, 2013
SEQUESTER ELIMINATES POSITION OF WHITE HOUSE TASTER, PRESIDENT TO STARVE.
Our working theory now (one that we researched and put about as much thought into as the Daily Caller does in most of their reporting) is that the food taster was furloughed alongside the myriad of other government workers thanks to this idiotic sequester. As a result the President will be unable to eat for at least one to three days a week, which will put him in good company with the 600,000 people being cut from the WIC program and will face the joys of hunger pangs in order to appease the deficit gods
Oh well. Avoiding diarrhea from second-hand lobster salad is probably a good idea in the long run.
