The passage from “Dreams From My Father” in which Obama admitted HE ATE A DOG also mentioned that he had eaten snake meat, as well as grasshoppers. Both would fit any American’s definition of “exotic food,” yet nobody has made a big deal out of them.
What’s shocking about Obama isn’t that he ate exotic foods but that he ATE A DOG. In America, dogs and cats are pets, not provisions. Frum’s apparent ignorance of this is enough to make us wonder if he’s some sort of alien from another country.
