Yikes. Delicious. I was ready for another one but then I loosened my belt and thought better of it. That, of course, was before I stocked up on other baked goods before leaving.

Great balance in this candidate, successfully balancing the calm reassuring fortitude of the cheddar against the straight-talking, no-nonsense breath of reality brought by the thinly sliced pickles. What makes this candidate hard to beat in '08 is the bread. It's the bread, stupid. This stuff has more holes in it than the logic of the current administration's rush to war! And boy does butter fill those holes well. The crusty exterior should not discourage younger voters from exploring this candidates positions; I think they will be pleasantly surprised to find quite a bit of hip, softness inside.
