A lot of people think Barack Obama was elected because of his policies on the economy, health care, and the war, but there was one other thing that helped: Pie, naturally.
Obama was the most outspoken candidate in regards to his love of pie. And if you don’t think it was a strategic political move, think again.
Everyone love’s pie. It’s like saying “I really like puppies and kittens”. People identify with pie & Obama was a master at using his love of pie to his advantage.
Below is one of his speeches about pie, and Jimmy Kimmel also had a nice bit about it during the election, “Barack Obama’s Pie of the Month Club“.
Thanks to my brother Paul for pointing this out to me.
