And they're all pointless today. You know why? Because here in greater Chicagoland, we've got cookies. That's right - cookies.
The Sun-Times reports that Northbrook-based Max & Benny's have been offering Obama and McCain cookies since July and according to manager/owner Ben Schlan, the $4.95 cookies with Obama's visage have been outselling McCain's from 20-to-1. No word on how the damn things actually taste (insert obvious chocolate/vanilla joke here), but the Veepcookies will be on sale starting today, and the thought of chowing down on Sarah Palin is probably appealing to a lot of people. (Insert obvious moose/barracuda joke here.)
