Team Obama serves the press cookies that Mitt Romney said, "came from the local 7-eleven, bakery, or whatever.“

I'm sure most of you will remember this moment of Willard's War on Cookies, aka CookieGate:

Yes, back in April, Just Like Us Mitt proved that he couldn't recognize a specially baked cookie if he tripped over one in the kitchen of one of his mansions.

He actually thought he was relating to Pennsylvania voters in that video, comparing a batch of cookies from a mom-and-pop store to those mass-produced for 7-Eleven stores:

“I’m not sure about these cookies. They don’t look like you made them,” Romney said to the woman sitting next to him “No, no. They came from the local 7-eleven, bakery, or whatever.

The comments quickly spread on Twitter, with some pointing to the remarks as an example of Romney being out of touch to the point of confusing 7-11 with a bakery.

At least he didn't call them "chocolate goodies."

Today, TPM caught this tweet:

Oh, snap.

I love TPM's line, "It’s not exactly the same as driving a campaign bus around a rival’s event and honking the horn." No, it's also not as infantile, unprofessional, annoying, loud, and pointless.

VIDEO ADDED: Mitt Romney's War on Cookies

VIDEO ADDED:

Willard Romney sat at a picnic table with "real people" (unlike his Etch A Sketch self) who he simply could not relate to at all. In fact, it makes one wonder if he's even sat at a picnic table before. Awkward much?

Ed Schultz devoted a segment of his show to Mitt's inability to appear human and, you know, connect:

Willard couldn't come up with a response to anything. "Mmhmm," "yeah," and "right" were his inept answers to the concerns and observations of the people in the video. Boyoboy, if that's not leadership, I don't know what is.

CNN reported on another Mitt Moment in which he thought he was relating to Pennsylvania voters, comparing a batch of cookies from a mom-and-pop store to 7-Eleven munchies:

"I'm not sure about these cookies. They don't look like you made them," Romney said to the woman sitting next to him "No, no. They came from the local 7-eleven, bakery, or whatever."

The comments quickly spread on Twitter, with some pointing to the remarks as an example of Romney being out of touch to the point of confusing 7-11 with a bakery.

Face palm.

As a result, a 57-year-old bakery decided to offer a 'CookieGate' special: Buy a dozen, get a half-dozen free.

Here's hoping they were the right height.

P.S. Re: The "War on Cookies" title... I kid the MittWit. I'm sure he supports cookies, as long as they're not baked by government chefs.
