Oh, he'll eat the apple, but it has to be the right kind.
From a Friend of a Friend (a friend of ours):
An aide to Obama - who was in NYC last night - was sent on a mission: Find and buy Obama GALA APPLES.
Apparently, it's the only type he'll eat.
What? The rest are not good enough for him?
What a snob.
Oh, by the way, Wiki says:
Gala apples are small and are usually red with a portion being greenish or yellow-green, vertically striped. Gala apples are fairly resistant to bruising and are sweet, grainy, with a mild flavor and a thinner skin than most apples. They are also considered to be a very soft eating apple due to their lack of crispiness, well-suited for denture wearers.
Does the Messiah wear dentures?
