Romney distributes beef jerky to reporters, one of whom gets ‘jerky envy’

Minutes later, Romney returned again, this time carrying a large bag of beef jerky that he said he had personally received from jerky guru Jack Link.

"Here you go," Romney said, as he handed out gigantic sticks of beef—identified as Jack Link's "Sasquatch" size. Reaching into the bag as he approached Sam Youngman, a Reuters reporter, he pulled out a miniature "All American Beef and Cheese" pack—about half the size of the pieces of jerky he had doled out to other reporters. Glancing at the package and then at Youngman, Romney laughed.

"OOH, sorry," Romney said, letting out a "ha ha ha."

Reporters laughed and exchanged glances. Had the Republican presidential nominee just made a "size" joke?

A moment later, Romney returned, handing Youngman a bigger stick from the bag. "Thanks governor," Youngman replied. "I had jerky envy."

Romney burst out laughing and returned to his seat.

Was it halal? If not, Baraq is going to blame Romney for the next wave of Islamist riots around the globe.

Or ROMNEY BRIBING PRESS FOR GOOD COVERAGE WITH BEEF JERKY.

Which will allow Obama “cover” to run their own ad saying so by quoting/referring to the press headline and article.

He could send her a lamb vindaloo and it would be more Indian than her.

If I'd known they were that cheap I'd've thrown a few strips at them myself.

I've noticed that the reporter named Holly Bailey tends to write positive Romney pieces.

Interesting....

Let’s hope that her boss hasn’t, or she’ll be out of a job.

However, Eric Holder didn’t seem to get the joke. His investigative task force discovered that the jerky Romney was freely handing out was made from 100 percent Angus beef. Angus cattle, as you know, are black in color.

Towns in Michigan and Wisconsin are burning tonight, and the right wing extremist jerky maker has been placed in protective custody by sheriff’s officers working under the auspices of the Justice Department, which has launched a probe into the racist history of the meat snack maker.

If you’re going to hand out jerky to reporters be sure to hand out that chicken jerky from China. Save the American stuff for your friends.
