Food fight

July 24, 2008

If you still haven’t decided between McCain and Obama, here’s just the thing that will probably tip it for you:

As far as we could determine, McCain is a regular-guy diner-out, happy to follow Arizona custom with a Tex-Mex combo platter but also loyal to the modestly adventurous gourmet food available near his ranch north of Phoenix. The Obamas’ favorite spot for a night out in Chicago is the alta cocina Mexican restaurant Topolobampo, said Michelle Obama spokeswoman Katie McCormick Lelyveld.

Chicagoans know Topolobampo as the quieter, slightly classier sister restaurant of Frontera Grill, both owned by award-winning chef Rick Bayless. Sun-Times restaurant critic Pat Bruno has praised its “creativity and quality.”

Sadly, no help for me, as neither candidate was revealed to be a “chili dog for breakfast” kind of guy. So they both have a weakness for Mexican food, huh? Hmmmn.

    Weakness for mexican food could mean a “weakness” for an illegal alien across the border plan as well.
    As for me?
    Cold pizza for breakfast…with or without coffee…any day.
    (as long as the upper GI tract holds up)

    We’ve now had 8 years of “chili-dog for breakfast” presidents, between Billy and the Current Occupant… and I hope our next president emulates neither of those responsibility duckers … I don’t want a president who has a so-called “common touch” – I want a responsible, smart one

    OK, but don’t make your decision based on “arugula”.

    The reporters covering Obama don’t seem to know it, and I doubt Barry himself does, but I bet the grandparents that named him would have known: Arugula was called “rocquette” a quarter century ago, and half a century ago, it was called rocket.

    It’s not a fancy french green. It’s all-american, and was originally harvested where it was growing wild. They called it “rocket” because it would shoot up so fast in the spring. The “rebranding” of this plant is all marketing.
