Mitt Romney Orders a Sub but at Least It Wasn’t a Cheesesteak with Swiss

While much has been made of Mitt Romney ordering a meatball SUB at Wawa this weekend (oh the humanity), we were taken back to 2003 when then Presidential hopeful John Kerry butchered his cheesesteak order at Pat’s Steaks. Here’s Craig LaBan’s 0-bell take on that ordering gaffe.

Swiss cheese, as any local knows, is not an option. The Massachusetts Democrat may as well have asked for cave-aged Appenzeller. But even when Kerry was given a proper cheesesteak hoagie, he made matters worse by delicately nibbling at it as if it were tea toast.

    Romney ordered a meatball hoagie with pickles and sweet peppers. Pickles?

    This is a great post, Foobooz. Keep up the good work!

    I’m confused by your post foobooz. This seems to focus more on a democratic candidate with picture and all, as opposed to Mitt. Shouldn’t the picture or at least a video, be of him?! Geeze we’ve had elections since 2003. Philly mag is obviously run by republicans. The amount of gaffes he made about Wawa was just hilarious. What do you want from an effete plutocrat who was born with a silver spoon in his orifice and has no concept of life among the proletariat and bourgeoisie who are the true salt of the earth that produce the wealth of our country. You were the last to publish this story and were also the only site to leave a picture and video if mitt out. Pathetic

    Hey at least he didn’t call it a hero.

    Or a grinder, as Bobby Flay referred to the Paesano.
