THE New York Times reports today: “The pizza, it turns out, is political.” This is somewhat like saying, “The ocean, it turns out, is salty.” Pizza is political, social, economic, and philosophical. Pizza is everything.
According to a survey, Republicans, because of Herman Cain, like Godfather’s Pizza. Democrats don’t. (You can see the Godfathers Pizza Index here, which raises the question as to why there is no National Pizza Index, which might give us an idea of daily consumption throughout the nation.)
There is no serious political faction in this country challenging the Pizza Industrial Complex. It’s all one form or another of partisan pizza-ship.
