In an earlier blog post about Obama’s secret doughnuts-for-votes program, I quoted Peter Rosenstein, a Clinton partisan, as saying Clinton’s D.C. operation “did not have a doughnut strategy.” Friday, the New York Times reported that in January, the Clinton campaign spent $1,200 at Dunkin Donuts.

Is it too much of a stretch to speculate that had Clinton not been so stingy with the fried dough, her campaign wouldn’t be in such dire straits? Where are these doughnuts going, if not to the polls? Anyone check the pockets of Mark Penn, above?
