How can you tell the story of Mitt Romney's frugality? Tell it with a pizza. How do you commemorate the death of Osama bin Laden? Deliver pizza to firefighters, as Romney did Tuesday with Rudy Giuliani tagging along. How do taunt President Obama's reelection campaign? Send them your leftover pizza. There is a jumbo slice for every point Mitt Romney could possibly hope to score.
According to Reuters' Sam Youngman, the sight of Romney carrying these pizzas prompted one onlooker to quip, "Just don't put 'em on the roof of the car." (Timing!)
If pizza delivery lacks a certain solemnity you might expect when noting the death of bin Laden, the whole reason we've been at war for more than 10 years, you have to understand that pizza is a medium Romney is comfortable with. Last May, when Romney visited Chicago, he ate some deep-dish pizza and then delivered the leftover slices to Obama's headquarters. This was apparently an in-your-face bit of campaign trash talk.
