New Obama Landmark In Chicago Demonstrates Unbelievable Irony

A marker has been placed at the site of where Barack Obama and Michelle Obama had their first kiss in 1989 in Hyde Park. Irony to follow.

The Chicago Tribune reports,

She was an attorney at a big Chicago law firm. He was a Harvard Law student who landed a job there as a summer associate. He was immediately smitten. She wasn’t so sure. But he won her over, and the couple sealed their budding romance with a kiss at the Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Hyde Park.

A quote from President Obama, taken from an interview published in “O, The Oprah Magazine” in February 2007, is inscribed beneath an embedded photo of the couple.

“On our first date, I treated her to the finest ice cream Baskin-Robbins had to offer, our dinner table doubling as the curb. I kissed her, and it tasted like chocolate.”

The marker is a 3,000 pound granite boulder that took two and a half years to make and bears a black plaque with a picture of the Obamas about to kiss on it over a black background and gold embossed edges and raised lettering.

You were waiting on the irony…

“As an independent company with new owners committed to providing the resources needed to support its growth plan, we believe Dunkin’ Brands is ideally situated to execute its strategy across the Dunkin’ Donuts, Togo’s and Baskin-Robbins brands and geographies,” the consortium members said in a statement.

Granted, Mitt Romney was not there at the time of the acquisition of Baskin-Robbins. Nevertheless, there is incredible irony in this little fairy tale.
