Red Cheese Vs. Blue Cheese: Obama Wins Edible Poll
You probably thought eating cheese was an innocent affair, but it turns out you might be inadvertently showing your political cards in this particular tasting experience. Cheese specialist Lisa Hviding is offering a red cheese and a blue cheese to customers at the Park Hyatt in DC as a rough edible poll. We say taste them both to keep them confused. NPR has the story:
Options for Democrats: a blue cheese called Ewe's Blue and a cow's milk cheese from Lazy Lady Farm in Vermont named Barick Obama. (It's aged four to six weeks and has a "soft elastic body," according to the farm's website.) And for Romney supporters: Red Hawk, procured from Cowgirl Creamery, a washed rind cheese that has a reddish-orange tint to its rind.
So, who's ahead? "Ewe's Blue might be the most popular at this point," says Hviding. Lest we take this too seriously, she says, so far, most guests seem to be choosing on the basis of their taste buds, not necessarily their politics.
