Mitt Romney Endorses Meat Loaf

RomneyBoth presidential candidates have received celebrity endorsements during their campaigns and now Republican candidate Mitt Romney has made an endorsement of his own; for the dinnertime delight, Meat Loaf.

Romney made the endorsement at a rally in Ohio. When asked by a reporter what his favorite meal was, he said, “I like meat loaf. Not only is it delicious but the cattle industry employs tens of thousands of Americans. I love America so obviously I also love meat loaf.”

After Romney’s endorsement, Democratic contender President Barack Obama was asked what food he endorses. He told reporters, “I agree with my wife Michelle that nutrition is vitally important for kids growing up today. So any fruit or vegetable gets my nod of approval.”

Obama’s endorsement received lots of support from parents and teachers and Mitt Romney’s meaty dish was criticized for increasing obesity in America. When reporters asked Romney if he still endorses meat loaf, he said, “I’ve never endorsed meat loaf. It’s not only full of fat but it also has a rather bland taste. If I had to endorse a food, it would definitely be either carrots or broccoli. Not meat loaf. I’ve always hated meat loaf.” Romney gained a slight lead in the polls after his heartfelt endorsement of the healthy snack.
