The first piece of news from this Obama-Romney lunch psuedo-event appears to be the decision by a stereotypically bearded man yelling something at Mitt Romney.
You could argue that this is karma for the Romney campaign's strange (and abandoned mid-autumn) habit of sending its bus toward Obama events, where it could circle and honk its horn. But it still seems cruel.
UPDATE: The second piece of psuedo-news is that Romney was served white turkey chili, which is funny, because "white" and "turkey" have certain connotations. We probably should have taken this week off, right?
