Barackomania extends to the food industry:
BURLINGTON, Vt. - The founders of Ben & Jerry's endorsedon Monday, and lent his Vermont campaign two "ObamaMobiles" that will tour the state and give away scoops of "Cherries for Change" ice cream.
"If there was ever a need for real change, and if there ever was a candidate to inspire us and make that happen, it's now," said Ben Cohen.
Added Jerry Greenfield: "Barack is showing that when you lead with your values and follow what you have inside that good things will happen."
Echoing Obama, Greenfield said he and Cohen succeeded when they opened their30 years ago in Burlington by doing things differently, instead of copying the "tired ways" of doing business.
"What we saw is that when you want real change it's not a marketing slogan. You have to do things differently. And that is not going to be done by someone who's been involved in the system for years and years," Greenfield said. "It needs to come from inside and Barack Obama has it."
Now this is kinda tough for me because I absolutely love Ben & Jerry's ice cream, but nice guy that I am, I won't hold the founders endorsement of Barack against their product. Besides, considering all the loons living in Vermont, I wouldn't be surprised if almost all of its residents were supporting the most liberal senator in Congress for President.
