We can keep coming up with movie characters. (Cheese etiquette is a big deal in Philly. If you're running for office you better not fuck it up. Go to Pat's and order Wiz or Wiz without . . . that's it)

Bobby Moynihan as Chris Christie

But more than that, he ordered American without (a cheesesteak with American cheese and no onions), which is just him coming to Philadelphia and trying to shove Wisconsin down our throats. Also, the founder of Geno's is a notorious racist so naturally he went there first. And then going to Pat's afterwards was clearly him playing both sides of the aisle. And then he left the food on the table when he left, which, like, they don't have a waitstaff to pick up after you.
How is this a news story? You guys are desperate for any anti-republican "news".

I think the picture actually helps Walker showing how juvenile the signs are and he just doesn't give a shit.

Bob - Growing up near Philly, Whenever a candidate makes a cheesesteak pilgrimage its big news. Ordering the right way shows the candidate is in tune with the local culture. American cheese isn't a big deal, in fact that's the most common and best tasting. When John Kerry wanted Swiss in 2004 there was a big uproar, because it played to the narrative that he was aloof and only wanted the finest for himself.

It just seems like every election cycle there are several of these insipid food-mishap stories. "Holy hell can you believe candidate x asked for ketchup on his Chicago hot dog!!!!!"

the republicans have enough self inflicted damage without people needing to scrutinize their eating habits too (except for Christie).

I do like the signs though, and Walker is a turd.

The thing i remember most about John Kerry in 2004 was he kept pretending he wasn't some elitist and tried to appeal to the "average guy". For instance, hunting geese, throwing the football around with John "2 Americas'" Edwards, etc.

It's no big deal though, we know that ALL politicians lie to some extent

 
with the obvious exception of Bernie Sanders, who NEVER lies EVER

I'm not desperate for anything, but I like any story about Philadelphia because I have an excuse for tangentially talking about myself without seeming narcissistic.

All three times I've been to Philadelphia I've ordered an American with. I feel lucky to have not started an international incident. Next time I'll get the provolone. Anything but cheez whiz.

Cheesesteaks look really gross to me. I'm glad I'm not running for president.

They are delicious. I used to work in a pizza/hoagie shop as a teen. The best were our Chicken Cheesesteak varieties.

Chicken Parm
Buffalo Chicken
Chicken Florentine

A good cheesesteak shouldn't be drowning in cheese and should have a good roll. As long as it has those things going for it, it will be delicious and not gross.

Remember the good old days when George HW Bush had to pretend to like pork ribs?
