Before heading to an Obama campaign volunteer office in Virginia today, Vice President Joe Biden stopped to buy pizza for supporters. He gave one of the three boxes (supposedly 8 lbs. each) he purchased to the press pool towing around with him. And he did it with typical Biden flair.
From a pool report by the Los Angeles Times' Michael Memoli:
Speaking to the pool after struggling to fit the pie in the van: "Guys, I didn't plan on the box being that big. I don't know how you are going to do that."
In a bit of a wistful farewell at the end of the campaign, [Biden] refers to many local food stops in the past few months. "I keep eating the stuff and you guys never get to have any. So thanks-thanks guys. I tell ya- you know- it's like you know: you go on a vacation and you come home and bring your kid a sweatshirt. 'Is that all there is a sweatshirt?' (Points to the pizza box sitting in the van) All you get this time is a pizza- What the hell."
