Let Him Eat Cake
Q: You have been described as having very little appetite for frivolity. Do you have any guilty pleasures?
A: I run a lot every morning.
Q:That sounds neither guilty nor pleasurable.
A: But I do it so I can indulge in the guilty pleasure of eating birthday cake.
Q: Every day?
A: Most days, with ice cream. Early on, when my wife and I were dating, we went to the grocery store, and I told her that sometimes I just buy birthday cakes, and I eat them. And she said: “Really? I do, too.”
Q: Even if it’s not somebody’s birthday?
A: Yes. She went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up a white birthday cake.
So besides being a small-thinking would-be traitor and theocrat, Sen. Tom ‘Mr. Postman’ Cotton is also psychosexually arrested at about first grade birthday parties?
