This is a phenomenon I certainly did not foresee: a fascination with the food Obama eats.
That’s right, you heard me: the food Obama eats. Apparently, any time Obama is reported to partake of a certain dish at a certain restaurant, the place is inundated with customers who think nothing of waiting between two and four hours for a chance to dine at the place where their idol so recently supped.
Remember that Chicago pizza Obama so craved back in April? Chris Sommers, owner of the pizza place involved, says that the publicity that unsued “has been our own private stimulus package.”
And now, inevitably, there’s a blog devoted to the all-important—and apparently tres popular—topic of whatever it is that the Obamas decide to ingest into their fabulous gullets. “Obama Foodorama” Blogger Eddie Gehman Kohan states that the day after the Obamas visited trendy restaurant Blue Hill on that New York date night of theirs, her blog got—are you ready?—”millions of hits.”
Clearly, I’m in the wrong blog niche.
