‘Free Pizza for McCain Sign’ Promotion Ends, Obama Sign Would Have Been More Apropos

At Salvatore’s Pizza in Warren, Michigan (near Detroit), if you turned in a McCain/Palin yard sign, you got a free pizza. Not any more.

The problem was that some people, as surprising as this may seem, were stealing McCain signs out of peoples’ yards so they could get the free pizza.

The symbolism would have been much richer if the owner, Diana, had people turn in Obama signs for free pizza. After all, which candidate best represents getting something for practically nothing? She also should have had people turn in an Obama/Biden yard sign for a “free” pizza and just charged it to somebody who makes over $250,000 a year. “That’s not pepperoni socialism, that’s opportunity with extra cheese!”

The owner said part of the reason for the promotion and support for Obama was that “health care is killing us.” Quite the statement from somebody who believed she was helping health care by giving away free steaming piles of grease and fat.


“Good evening, Senator. Will that be cash, check or yard sign?”
