Cute but fairly obvious satire from Andy Borowitz:
The Mitt Romney Gaffe Express pulled into a new station today, leaving its conductor’s hopes of proving himself to be a nimble statesman in tatters.
Mr. Romney’s troubles began in a meeting with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to whom he presented gifts of a HoneyBaked ham and a wheel of cheddar cheese.
(Doesn’t the authentic-sounding lede sentence kind of undermine the joke? I would have gone with indirection, e.g., “Mitt Romney worked quickly and decisvely to repair his tattered diplomatic credentials Sunday, presenting Benjamin Netanyahu with a a HoneyBaked ham and a wheel of cheddar cheese. ” That would have reinforced Mitt’s alleged cluelessness. I’m just saying…)
