My good friend the Political Prof cites John Sides’ post at The Monkey Cage blog:
Change in support for Godfather’s Pizza, by political affiliation. Everything is political.
Here are some things I should note: I don’t care for Herman Cain and would not vote for him. I don’t like the sexual harassment charges that have been made public recently, I don’t think he has anywhere near the sort of experience I’d like to see in someone running for President, and I disagree with virtually everything he says (most recently, that he thinks the U.S. ought to torture people and that he doesn’t need to know anything about foreign policy). I have not yet formed an opinion on whether or not he is a good Gospel singer.
That said, I ate Godfather’s Pizza for the first time in my life last weekend, at a little get-together to which my whole family was invited. It was awful (the food, not the get-together): greasier than any other “fast food” pizza place and also somehow unsatisfying. I could have eaten four or five pieces and still not felt full, just unwell. And this was just plain cheese. Suffice it to say I won’t be ordering it on my own.
But is that because I’m a Democrat? Well, that certainly accounts for why I don’t care for Cain. But does it also make me somehow predisposed to dislike his pizza? I’m not convinced, at least not in my idiosyncratic case, as it never occurred to me to eat Godfather’s Pizza before Herman Cain began his improbable run and I’ve now confirmed my suspicions about both of their quality.
So, a hearty “No, thank you!” to both Herman Cain and Godfather’s Pizza.
