Remember when they confiscated forks and knives at the White House Correspondents' Dinner?

You don't? That's because they didn't.

In fact, I searched high and low for examples like yesterday's bizarre incident where a group of Latino government officials were required to surrender their forks and knives.

“It’s very important that you use your utensils as soon as possible,” National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials board member Raquel Regalado told about 1000 delegates at the group’s annual conference.

Regalado hurried the diners to finish up their salads and pre-cut chicken breasts, saying that the Secret Service required that there be no knives at the tables and that the forks be rounded up before Obama entered the room.

As a wry commenter observed, maybe the president fears shivs in particular.

For those Hispanics already sickened by the president's incessant pandering, this kind of treatment can't come as much of a surprise.

Because I'd certainly trust any group in this country with forks and knives more than journalists.
