TOAST-O-METER

PoliBlog: The Toast-O-Meter (First Issue of 2004!) is now up. The Other Seven continue to look rather toasty, so much so that speculation on the Vice-Loaf has commenced.

TOAST-O-METER

Steven Taylor has updated his weekly comparison of the various Democratic contenders and various bread products. Given Americans are switching to the Atkins diet and thus eschewing carbohydrate-laden foodstuffs such as bread, this is particularly apt.

He also notes, via Stephen Bainbridge and The Economist that Gephardt is fast becoming the ABD candidate. Frankly, if someone doesn’t have the stick-to-itiveness required to finish his dissertation, he has no business being president.

TOAST-O-METER

PoliBlog has activated it for this year’s class of Democratic wannabes. He rates all the candidates for the degree to which they resemble the breakfast bread in question. The most obviously toasty:

Kucinich: burnt toast with overly sweet syrup on it. (However, if we all get together and think about unburning the toast, no doubt that will make us all feel better).

Sharpton: burnt nut bread.

Braun: the crumbs in the bottom of the toaster.

Bob Graham: Doesn’t matter, he’s out of the race. But he did have toast for breakfast, and dutifully noted the fact in his journal.
