File under: What if Bush did it?

Hey! Did you hear that when George Bush was president he flew a pizza guy 860 miles to Washington just to make pizza for him? Oh, wait...sorry. That was Barack Obama. Just yesterday.
Chris Sommers, 33, jetted into Washington from St Louis, Missouri, on Thursday with a suitcase of dough, cheese and pans to to prepare food for the Obamas and their staff.
Yes, the same president who's so in tune with the suffering of Americans in these uncertain economic times and who's so concerned about carbon emissions and their impact on the climate flew a guy 1,710 miles round trip to come to the White House to make fucking pizza.

A Yahoo News search on this only turns up amusing articles about how a guy from Chicago prefers pizza from St. Louis.

Via AoSHQ.

Update: Apparently, Sommers flew to Washington at his own (restaurant's) expense, is a poster child for environmental consciousness, yada-yada. That's not the point. Or at least it's not mine, which is why this is filed under "What if Bush did it?".
