Pardon Us, Mr. President
Some of you are probably Obama-burgered out. But we had to report on this new tidbit on Dijon-gate. You know how Sean Hannity totally dissed the Prez’s codiment choice last week, implying the decision to put grey poupon on a burger was as commie/unAmerican as Nikita Khruschev?
Well watch out Hannity, Kraft foods totally has the Prez’s back! TOTALLY! They’ve issued the following press release that we just had to feature for the delight or disgust of ESers everywhere:
May 8, 2009
The Honorable Barack H. Obama
President of the United States
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20006
Dear Mr. President:
We applaud you, Mr. President, for exercising your freedom of taste when recently ordering a burger with Dijon mustard. We’re always happy to see people use Dijon mustard to add flair and flavor to their favorite foods. The right to choose condiments freely is quintessentially American and embodies the spirit of our democracy.
So we urge you to respond to “Dijon-gate” by issuing a “pardon” to any American who has ever been criticized for putting a liberal spread of Dijon mustard on a burger or a conservative dollop on a ham & cheese sandwich. These “Pardon Me for Loving Dijon” proclamations will empower the millions of Dijon mustard-loving Americans to ask for their favorite condiment with pride.
The GREY POUPON Team

Let’s put it to the people: Is yellow mustard more inherently American than Grey Poupon? Discuss!
