What's wrong with Spaghetti-Os?

Jonah Goldberg receives an insulting e-mail, and I'm puzzled by one of the insults.

You're so stupid you must eat with a rubber spoon. Otherwise, you'd stab yourself accidentally when inhaling your Spaghetti-O's.

What's wrong with Spaghetti-Os? They're not my favorite, but the kids like them. I prefer the mini-ravioli myself. But on a cold day and you're looking for quick, cheap food, Spaghetti-Os are not the worst choice.

I didn't realize canned spaghetti was an ideological identifier and somehow insulting if served to a liberal. After all, it's not like Franco-American had to kill any dolphins to make it.
