It’s Official: House Republicans Declare Pizza a Vegetable

Official Portrait of President Ronald Reagan

Thanks to House Republicans, pizza is now a vegetable. That’s right: House Republicans voted this week to classify tomato sauce as a vegetable when it’s served on pizza to America’s school children. It’s enough to warm Herman Cain’s heart.

In their latest attempt to block everything suggested by President Obama, Republicans have chosen to ignore the childhood obesity epidemic and undermine the President’s initiative on physical fitness and healthy eating.

I love a good slice of pizza, but this is just ridiculous. Could restoring Ronald Reagan’s declaration that ketchup is a vegetable be next?

Herman Cain on Pizza, Muslims, and What Frightens Him

Herman Cain, Presidential Candidate

Herman Cain is really busy these days, but the former Godfather’s CEO apparently always has time for pizza.

Continuing his un­or­tho­dox campaign route, Cain sat down with GQ magazine for a pizza party. Here’s a look at Cain’s deepest thoughts on pizza (and other things).

  1. Cain thinks veggie pizza is sissy pizza. (“A manly man don’t want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza.”)
  2. Pizzas have no party. (“If it’s great pizza, it transcends party affiliation, just like a good idea—like 9-9-9.”)
  3. Cain says a Muslim told him that “a majority of Muslims share the extremist views.”
  4. If Michele Bachmann were an ice cream, she would be Tutti-frutti. (“I know I’m going to get in trouble!” he says.)
  5. The prospect of a Rick Perry Presidency frightens him. (“You don’t only have to be commander and chief, you have to be communicator in chief.)
