Barack's Got My Back

Posted by Patrick Alan Coleman on Tue, Jan 6, 2009 at 10:31 AM

Whatever happens over the next four to eight years, I know that Barack Obama will keep the food critics in his heart. Why? Because he's done a little food criticism himself, and on the Tee Vee no less! A forgotten 2001 episode of a Chicago cable access program entitled Check Please features then Senator Barack Obama speaking with blissful reserve about the beautiful, drowse inducing powers of the johnny cake.

Turns out that Barack and I share a dining philosophy: "What I'm looking for is food that tastes good, for a good price."

It's good to know that there's a serious eater in the White House. Maybe I can finally get that leg up from the government that I've been hoping for.

Props to Babble Sauce and Best Week Ever
