Who Pulls Their Cheese off Their Pizza? Mitt Romney

Quick Bites Adam Kuban 6 comments

20111130-romney.jpgIn a new e-book about the 2012 presidential campaign released by Politico there are apparently no disturbing revelations about GOP candidate Mitt Romney — except one. The Huffington Post reports: "Romney apparently pulls the cheese off his pizza and the skin off his fried chicken, and he subsists most of the time on turkey breast, rice and broccoli." More

Bloomberg's Pizza Money

Adam Kuban Post a comment

From the Washington Post: The bulk of Bloomberg's spending has gone into television, radio and Web advertising, it said.But some of the money has trickled down to recession-hit small businesses, including Goodfellas Brick Over Pizza on Staten Island and in the Bronx. The Bloomberg campaign has so far forked over $8,892 for pizza at Goodfellas alone. [Hat tip to Will F.]... More

Where the Obamas Eat Pizza

Adam Kuban 1 comment

From the New York Times: A good place to experience Hyde Park’s cross-cultural vibe is 57th Street. There are tweedy academics rummaging through the dusty shelves at 57th Street Books (No. 1301; 773-684-1300; semcoop.booksense.com), and dapper African-American families sharing deep-dish pizzas at Medici on 57th (No. 1327; 773-667-7394; www.medici57.com). Indeed, Malia and Sasha Obama have held pizza parties at this popular Italian restaurant; just refer to the menu, where new “Obama Eats Here” T-shirts are on sale for $18.... More

No More CPK for Michelle Obama

Quick Bites Adam Kuban 2 comments

"Mrs. Obama, a creature of the South Side and of habit, has spent nearly every Saturday for the past 10 years with the same two friends and their collective brood of children, lately at a local California Pizza Kitchen where the group hashes over their weeks together. Now all of that must change." [New York Times]... More

Domino's Analyzes Republican, Democratic Pizza Habits

Chain Pizza Adam Kuban 15 comments

Atlantic blogger Marc Armbinder finds some political research the folks at Domino's have done: Republicans Spend more per order than other consumersThey rely on credit cards to pay more than other consumersThey tend to order two large pizzas at a time, and they're usually specialty pizzasThey are more likely to order online, and more likely to pick up their orders Democrats Rely on delivery more than RepublicansPay cash more than other consumersLike more variety with their orders, opting for side items, chicken and beverages more than Republicans...

YTMND: McCainy Love Pizza

Adam Kuban Post a comment

This is one of the most bizarre submissions to make-your-own-meme site YTMND: McCainy Love Pizzas! The creator has used one of McCain's crazy faces and mashed it up with Ween's unreleased Pizza Hut Jingle "Where'd the Cheese Go?" (Warning: If you're at work, turn down your volume and/or put on headphones.)... More

Your Pizza, Your Pol

Frozen Pizza Adam Kuban 7 comments

Yesterday, the New York Times ran a story about "microtargeting," the practice of using purchase data to predict who you might vote for. The paper built profiles of Clinton, McCain, and Obama supporters. In the data were the types of pizza you were likely to buy as a back of each candidate. Hillary Clinton: Amy's Whole Wheat frozen pizza [supporter food profile] John McCain: DiGiorno Stuffed Crust pizza [supporter food profile] Barack Obama: Wolfgang Puck All Natural frozen pizza [supporter food profile] I have a weird thing for Tontino's/Jeno's frozen pizzas. Who the hell am I supposed to vote for?... More

McCain Visits Brooklyn Pizzeria, Gives Tax Refund to Counterman

Quick Bites Adam Kuban Post a comment

The Republican presidential candidate buys a $3 slice, pays with a double sawback, and tells the clerk to keep the change. OK. Maybe it really wasn't a tax refund, but whatevs. He dropped in on Verrazano Pizza in Bay Ridge: 9102 Fourth Avenue, Brooklyn NY 11209. [Tip o' the hat to Mark H.!]... More

Did Eliot Spitzer's Choice of Favorite Pizza Foretell His Error in Judgment?

Adam Kuban 2 comments

His choice of an upstate New York pizza chain, Cam's, however good it may be, clearly demonstrates a serious lack in pizza judgment. He's not into Gotham's pies? Say wha? More

The Political Observations of a Rapping Pizza Slice

This is a couple months old, but I didn't see it until yesterday. And I'm sure you'll see how it's relevant today. A rapping pizza slice on the dynastic nature of the Bush-Clinton-Bush years.

I try to keep things at Slice apolitical. After all, even the slimiest of Republicans and the skeeviest of Democrats enjoys good pizza. But this is an important election, and I figure all you homeslices reading the site could use some guidance as to whom the best pizza candidate might be among the front-runners in each party's nomination race....

Did the Politics of Pizza Sink Romney's Iowa Bid?

This info has been out there since late last month, but it's yet another reason why Mitt Romney may not have carried Iowa in the Republican caucus last night. The man must have alienated the pizza partisans in the Hawkeye State:... More

Spitzer to NYC Pizza: Drop Dead

Adam Kuban Post a comment

The New York Daily News is following gubernatorial Eliot Spitzer as he makes campaign stops: Spitzer's tour bus rolled on for the second day of its post-Buffalo statewide sojourn. The News' Celeste Katz reports that Spitzer flipped a pancake at a breakfast at a firehouse in Fayetteville - then proclaimed Cam's New York pizza in Watertown the state's best.For that slight heresy (has Spitzer ever been to Brooklyn's Di Fara Pizza or Grimaldi's?), he deserved what awaited him in Rome, when he listened to concerns of local farmers. Spitzer is in danger of alienating the Slice vote with such talk.... More

What Kind of Pie Do They Mean?

seltzerboy Post a comment

Today's Boston Globe is examining the lesser-known qualities of contenders for the Democratic nomination for president next year: "Like the candidate, Gephardt's campaign lacks bells and whistles. There is none of the innovation or razzle-dazzle of Dean's campaign. That's unless you count The Great Gephardt Iowa Pie Challenge link on his campaign website. There, visitors are invited to 'tell Dick where you think he should go for his next slice?of pie.' "The subject earns snickers from journalists, but the locals, like a standing-room-only crowd at Mabe's Pizza in Decorah, smile when Gephardt, who has been known to make three pie stops...
