William Jacobson of Cornell University Law School Is a Real Trip...

Let me go out on a limb and say that the clinical legal education teaching provided by this guy is likely to be highly, highly subpar:

William A. Jacobson: MSNBC Hides Obama’s Dijon Mustard (aka Dijongate): Andrea Mitchell (does she have nothing else to do?) reported that Obama ordered a burger and mustard. Sounds like it had that “real guy kind of quality.” Mitchell even noted that Obama left a $5 tip in the tip jar. But she didn’t mention… [that] Obama said. “Do you have spicy mustard? I’ll take that.” Actually, the quote was “you got a spicy mustard or something like that, or a Dijon mustard, something like that”…. Obama ordered his burger with DIJON MUSTARD! Bet he had to seek John Kerry’s counsel on that…..

UPDATE: An official name: Dijongate… smells like a scandal to me.

UPDATE No. 2: The cover-up is getting deeper. Here is an MSNBC website version of the video in which they cut off the audio just before the mention of Dijon mustard. The Hell Burger theme of the coverage doesn’t sound so tough when it’s topped off with Grey Poupon

UPDATE No. 3: There may be addictive behavior involved. Here is one of Obama’s favorite lunch recipes…. Tuna, Grey Poupon mustard, Mayonnaise, Chopped gherkins. And here is the video proof. The One loves his Grey Poupon….

UPDATE No. 4: He ordered a cheddar cheese burger with Dijon Mustard on his first flight on Air Force One, and the mainstream media didn’t cover it….

UPDATE No. 5: The conspiracy of silence on Obama’s allegience to Dijon Mustard goes way back. Remember, it’s the cover-up, not the crime….

UPDATE No. 6: Dijongate is spreading like … well, you know. Ed Morrissey is on the case….

Now I happen to agree with the President. American mustard is crap, and the spicy stuff is better. But this didn’t fit with the narrative of two wild’n'crazy guys going out for a couple of burgers. So they edited the offending condiment out of the report. To give a more flattering soft focus. Shameless shills, the lot of them. They should be ashamed, except, y’know, they’re shameless…
