Bad Dairy Day for Hillary: lost Wisconsin and Ben & Jerry by Sybil Sage

After weathering the news that the founders of Ben & Jerry's are endorsing Barack Obama and offering two "ObamaMobiles" that will be giving away scoops of "Cherries for Change" ice cream to sweeten his Vermont campaign, Hillary had to contend with losing Wisconsin. It's conceivable that among the issues being debated by her reportedly split campaign staff is whether or not to approach Haagen-Dazs and ask them to come up with a pro-Hillary flavor. This may be challenging as "Pistachio Pant Suit" and "Nutty Hubby" might not have wide appeal.

With endorsements being announced almost daily and Mc Cain emerging as the likely Republican candidate, I'm hoping Westland-Hallmark, the meat company best known for prodding and poking terminally ill cows before slaughtering and selling the meat to the National School Lunch Program, will endorse John Mc Cain once they're done recalling 143 million pounds of beef.
