Eat This Election

By Karl Klockars in Food on Nov 4, 2008 7:20PM

With the wall-to-wall coverage of Obamapalooza this afternoon and evening, there's going to be a few million of us that will be sitting at home, glued to the television results and plastered on cheap wine. So we thought perhaps some of us would be hosting friends and enjoying the political spectacle of the End of the American Presidential Election Season (until tomorrow). And since the Trib completely ballsed up their hip-to-be-square party planning piece a couple days ago, it falls to us to lend a hand.

For your 2008 Partisan Presidential Political Potluck Pollster Pextravaganza, we offer the following menu items, chock full of bad puns, plays on words, cheap gags, and 32 mentions of Joe the Plumber per minute - almost like the election season itself. Full menu after the jump - your suggestions are always appreciated.
