The Audacity of Pie

The Greatest. Orator. Evah! discusses his decision making process with regard to . . . pie.

“We decided to stop at a diner because I was hungry and I decided I wanted some pie (1). Pie (2). That’s what I wanted.”

At which point, as usual, someone in the crowd listening offered some pie of their own.

“You make pie(3)?” Obama asked? “What kind of pie (4) you make? Sweet potato pie (5)? I like sweet potato pie (6). I’m thinking of having a sweet potato pie (7) here in Philadelphia? Because I’ve heard a lot of people are saying they can make sweet potato pie (8). I’ll put it up against my mother in laws sweet potato pie (9). Alright, you give up? Nah. You. So anyway they did not have sweet potato pie (10) in South OH. So I had coconut cream pie (11). The governor of OH he had lemon meringue pie (12). So we ordered our pie (13)and I decide that I’m going to take a picture with the wait staff.”

It was at this point that he had matched his record. Had he stopped here, it certainly would have been impressive…yet not historic. I would like to say the crowd stood silent waiting to see if he would break the record, thrilled to say they witnessed someone reach pie immortality. But the truth is, they might have been silent out of concern. How much pie can one person take? Nevertheless, the record was within reach. And Obama continued:

“Just as we were finished taking the picture and the owner comes out, with our pie (14). So I take my pie (15).”

What cracks me up about this quote isn't so much the multitudinous references to something as ridiculous as pie, but how Obama has to make eating pie into such a BOLD display of LEADERSHIP.

Check out the first paragraph:

"We decided....I decided...I'm the one who wanted pie!"

The second paragraph:

"I decide I'm going to take a picture with the wait staff."

The final paragragh:

"I take my pie."

You know what these decisive acts of clear, focused leadership will translate to tomorrow?

Obama's entire resume of executive experience.

Pie you can believe in. Obama 2008!

UPDATE: Michelle Obama likes her some pie too. Her favorite kind? Yours.

"The truth is, in order to get things like universal health care and a revamped education system, then someone is going to have to give up a piece of their pie so that someone else can have more."

Hope and Change and Pie! Without the pie. Or the hope of having any.
