Obama Beats McCain! (As Barbecue Guest, That Is)

Ah, American media. I will never long for things to post while there's an election on the horizon.

With serious issues like gas prices, the housing market, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and the economy here at home all weighing on peoples' minds, hard hitting journalists want to know... which candidate would you rather break beef with at your holiday barbecue?

The results shouldn't come as much of a shock. Men are split while women prefer Obama. Whites want McCain while minorities would invite the senator from Chicago. Youngsters? Obama, 'natch, while AARP members are strictly rockin' it with McCain.

Frankly, I don't think I want either one at my house. I think they'd say anything to get the Hungover Gourmet "bump" and the Secret Service guys would eat all the pulled pork.

Can't I just invite Clinton? Bill, that is.

Did you catch the one photo of some person at a state fair carving Barack Obama's bust out of butter? It was a Barack O-butter O-bust!

This neither confirms nor denies whom I support, but will say that I'd rather have Obama than McCain over for BBQ. McCain just seems too, well, crotchety and angry. Surely Obama picked SOMETHING up foodwise in those few years in that school in Indonesia! Besides, it'd be an excuse to make a big pile of nasi goreng.

Ooooh, I just got some ideas for my sister's BBQ/housewarming tomorrow!
