Political differences begin with breakfast

I just read an article that explains the difference between the Obama campaign and the McCain campaign in terms of what they serve for breakfast on the campaign trail:
What's the big difference between the two campaigns?"

I'd have to say it's the food. John McCain's campaign serves macho Republican meals. There are cooked breakfasts, chunks of dead animals on sticks and coffee that tastes like coffee. ...

On Mr Obama's plane, by contrast, the breakfasts are designed to keep scribblers lean and liberal. There are little plastic pots of cereal, no doubt rich in vitamins and fibre. There are little tubs of chopped fruit. There are cups of "coffee" that have clearly never met a coffee bean.

The cereal and the fruit I can understand. But what is the point of being a latte-drinking, sushi-eating, Volvo-driving progressive if you can't get a decent cup of coffee?

Hmmm.... I'm disappointed to hear about the plastic tubs and the coffee.

I wonder if the animals on sticks include moose? Sorry... couldn't resist. Feel free not to post my comment. ;-)
