Romney's having his fluffernutter and eating it too

Washington (CNN) - The caption could read: "A party ain't a party till Mitt Romney eats his fluffernutter cake."

On Tuesday, Romney had his cake – and ate it too – as he celebrated his birthday. Eldest son Tagg Romney put out pictures of his father, apparently in full office party mode, on the social media site Instagram.

In one picture, Romney smiled broadly as he donned a birthday party hat. Before him sat birthday cupcakes lighted with candles. A can of Diet Coke sat nearby, seemingly to wash it all down.

A second picture showed Romney eating a cupcake. Fluffernutter is a white bread sandwich containing peanut butter and marshmallow crème. Romney was known during the campaign for his penchant for peanut butter and honey sandwiches - but it is his birthday after all.

The former Republican presidential nominee turned 66. The son captioned the Instagram picture: "Happy 66th Dad. Can't beat a fluffernutter cupcake."

    /sigh

    you can't have a cake AND eat it.
    that's the whole reason for the expression, they are mutually exclusive.
    if he had a cake and he ate a cake, he'd have TWO cakes

    The fact that the media keeps his face in the news, is proof positive that it's been a slow news day. Borrring.

    Yeah, America dodged a bullet with this guy alright, and the bullet we got sits up in the White House and hit America right between the eyes. I'd rather take the dodged bullet than the one between the eyes.

    Now with no place in the political arena and after a sh-t boat load of money wasted on his abysmal campaign to be the leader of the free world, of which, tanked way before the votes were cast. But the "Big Joke News Media" still find him relevant, Why? :(

    I guess we need to go to the polls again and vote again to tell Willard again that we don't want him again?

    Why isn't Mitt on kolob or Nauvoo awaiting the polygamist Jesus Christ. I am sure rapist Joseph Smith is awaiting him with his 87 wives. Still can't find the 200 pound gold tablets ? Where is kolob in our galaxy ? Can nut case mormon Glenn Beck tell me ? Fox News must help with disinformation and yellow journalism. Help I can't find a mormon temple.
