Vilsack & The Cookie Monster

Former Mount Pleasant, Iowa Mayor/former State Senator/former Iowa Governor and current US Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack is featured in a Politico video — with Sesame Street's Cookie Monster.  Vilsack wisely declines to name the Sesame Street character he thinks most closely resembles President Obama. In one short section of the video, it looks like former Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack was on the scene with her husband.

UPDATE:  Kudos to The Cedar Rapids Gazette's Todd Dorman over at his 24/7 Dorman blog for catching an Onion article about Vilsack.

  1. Cookie Monster hasn’t been the same since he became politically and nutritionally correct and changed his tune from “C Is For Cookie” to “A Cookie Is A Sometimes Thing.” I mean, broccoli? C’mon!
