Beer baroness turned international crisis manager, Cindy McClown, suffered through a Dukakis moment while assessing civilian casualties in Georgia (“We are all Georgians”) on her sudden tour of the plucky little nation which recently tried to kick Russia in the groin.
TBRILISI, Georgia — Johnnie McClown‘s wife, Cindy, visited Georgian refugees Tuesday, and freely shared her favorite family recipes with them despite the fact they no longer had kitchens or the proper ingredients.
“There is a lot to do here and my job in all of this is to make sure that the international community does not forget what is going on here,” she said, as she handed out copies of her family’s favorite Farfalle Pasta with Turkey Sausage, Peas and Mushrooms recipe to perplexed refugees.
A moment later, McClown inadvertently demoralized the refugees by adding, “And more importantly, that we make sure to continue to bring light to the difficulties and the future difficulties [sic] that may occur particularly with a hard winter coming.”
McClown seemed extremely well briefed, stating before she left, “There’s a whole bunch of things going on right now, and as we [sic] begin to move refugees from point A to point B, or try to feed refugees who are stuck in pockets around the country, we’re [sic] now running into the issue of the blowing up of humanitarian vehicles that are trying to get to the refugees stuck in their pockets. So it’s a whole morass of problems now.”
Mrs. McClown appeared in a dazzling pink wrist brace, as she is still suffering from a supporter’s vicious handshake, which caused an undetermined amount of ligament damage last week. She’s such a trooper!
She reports back to McPOW Headquarters in Phoenix at 2330 hours Wednesday for her next international assessment assignment. She is not expected to assess any of the more than 4.2 million Iraqi refugees, or the estimated one million people currently stranded by monsoon flooding in Bihar in northern India, or the 31 million homeless from last year’s floods. So many refugees, so few of them worthy of a Cindy assessment.
This is the first time since the outbreak of war in Georgia that we can claim to be proud of the wife of an American politician who is running for President.
Meanwhile Michelle is in despair that she can’t seem to find just the right piano teacher for her children. How does she cope? Oh the horror!
Perhaps Mrs. Obama can get “Uncle Tom” to teach her children, I hear there are many such uncles in the democrat party.
