This afternoon I was walking out of the Village Market in Yachats with a couple of packaged Pizzaís and a woman stopped me and asked ďare those kind on sale today? I love their thin crust.Ē
Sadly I told her they werenít but I got them anyway because I was meeting some people from Seal Rock to go to a party in Waldport later. The Pizzaís I got are thin crusted and you can eat them without feeling stuffed which isnít the case with the heavy duty thick curst Pizza. Thatís like eating a whole loaf of bread instead of a sandwich. I got to thinking about thin versus thick crust and couldnít help but think of the political climate these days which is kind of like a Political Pizza. Some of it is great, like a tiny bite of thin crusted goodness while some of it is way too thick crusted, heavy and filling. However, with Pizza people have a choice and when you go to a Pizza Parlor there are many options to choose from. The only problem there is is what choices to make. It depends on who youíre getting the Pizza for. If itís just you more than likely you will get just what you want. But if there are several people going there are bound to be different tastes so some negotiations will be necessary to please everyone. It could be a large combination Pizza, or several small ones, or half and half Pizzas. Often what happens is that everyone tries a bite of all the Pizzas and offers their opinion on how good or bad it is. Now with Political Pizza there are fewer choices to choose from. Currently there is only one choice for todayís Political Pizza; itís who is going to be the next President and Vice President. All four candidates are in place and thatís the big news. Naturally there are multitude of programs and opinions that are in the mix but the main ingredients in the Political Pizza are the faces weíve grown accustomed to seeing on a daily basis. There are differences in the approaches the candidates and their political parties are taking that will make a difference in who will win the election but for me itís all about the crust on the Pizza. Iím trying to watch my waistline as well as my health so Iím going to have to stick with the Political Pizza that is satisfying, healthy and just gives you what you need without all the extra sauce and the bloated feeling from just too much Pizza dough.
I love Pizza and am looking forward to taking this current Political Pizza out of the oven and hopefully it will be the perfect Political Pizza for all of us, so no matter if youíre for thin crust or thick curst, donít forget to vote!
