McCain Fails To See Why We Like Cinnamon Toast Crunch

Denver, CO – As the election grows closer, and with Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama making headlines with his choice of running mate, John McCain is trying to make his presence known.

Senator McCain has been speaking in front of small groups with the intent of influencing voters within local communities. During one of these question and answer sessions, McCain was truly stumped.

Sources say that this time wasn’t like the economics question (to which he responded “I don’t know much about economics”); the Republican presidential hopeful was practically speechless.

“Senator McCain,” shouted a member of the crowd, “Can you see what makes Cinnamon Toast Crunch so good?”

“Umm, excuse me?” McCain stammered and replied with a slack jawed silence. At that point the candidate was presented with a bowl of the popular cereal and the question was repeated.

“Is it experience and a strong military record?” Asked McCain, the crowd remained silent in response. “Is it…um…because it isn’t culturally threatening?” The crowd just stared as the candidate panicked. “I don’t know!!!” shouted Senator McCain. “I don’t trust its’ judgment, I think it’s Muslim, not that there is anything wrong with that, I’m just saying.”

Reportedly, the crowd left the auditorium, disappointed with Senator McCain’s response.

Within hours, Senator Barack Obama received news of the faux pas and quickly issued a public statement. The statement was short and simple.

“Swirls of real cinnamon and sugar in every bite.”
