Barack Obama Elitist Salad Watch: This Morning, I Bought Arugula—at Walmart!

What is this world coming to?

Today, while shopping at Walmart, I found ARUGULA being sold in the fresh produce section.

And it was labeled ORGANIC (see shocking image).

And it was in RECYCLABLE packaging.

Is Walmart becoming an elitist, un-American store?

Or is it that I was just shopping in the un-American part of Walmart?

ANYWAY, I bought some.

It was obviously un-American of me to do so, but I was curious.

And I must confess it: ARUGULA is pretty good.

I liked it!

I feel like Sam-I-Am.

Sam Walton-I-Am!

I hope Walmart sells more elitist, un-American products in the future.

And I hope that America elects that ARUGULA eating elitist intellectual, Barack Obama, the next president.

I know it’s un-American to hope so.

But after giving ARUGULA a try, it makes me want to give OBAMA a try too.
