People eat food when they see Barack Obama. This is unlike all other instances of human existence ever.
The real problem here is that we're getting past the "Obama's shallow but popular stage" to the "local news does dumb interviews with people" stage. I understand that the last person who was excited to see John McCain was that guy he owed money to a few years back, but really, this is just sad now. I do appreciate the fact that John McCain's pop culture references have moved up to the early 90s now - maybe one day soon he can work in a Matrix reference!
