• Conservatives Blame Obama for Taking Away Twinkies

    On hearing the news that Hostess Brands Inc., the maker of Twinkies and Wonder Bread, is shutting down operations — ostensibly due to an inability to resolve a bakers' strike — many Americans waxed nostalgic about pastries they hadn't eaten in years. Which may hint at the real reason why the business went down.

    But more than a few Americans are directing their ire at something other than the free market…

    Guys, to modify a line that the Romney campaign won't be needing anymore: you didn't eat that. That's why the business is liquidating.

    As for the president, I think a former stoner is more than a little appreciative of all that Hostess has done for America. He's not the culprit here. If I were to imagine a conspiracy at work, I'd picture New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg slowly stroking a cat, confiscated over-sized cups of soda by his side and an evil smile on his face as he reads this morning's news.
