Mr. Cain, Veggie Pizza Is Not "Sissy"
By Michelle Maskaly on November 14, 2011
Dear Mr. Cain,
Forget your politics, your abrupt way of dealing with journalists or even the alleged sex scandal that is putting a wrinkle in your campaign. You, made a major error in your interview with GQ magazine -- you called a veggie pizza "sissy."
"A manly man don't want it piled high with vegetables! He would call that a sissy pizza," you told GQ.
I wonder what all the manly vegetarian, and vegan, men around the world, like President Billl Clinton, Tobey Maguire, Forest Whitaker, Josh Hartnett or Jared Leto, would say about this?
Godather's Pizza, where you used to be the chief executive, even offers a veggie lovers pizza, featuring mushrooms, tomatoes, onions, black olives, green peppers, and mozzarella cheese.
But, since it's not manly enough, then maybe vegetarian males should stop ording it?
Or, maybe you just haven't had really good veggie pizza. I would be more than happy to cook some of my vegetarian favorites, like my Spinach Pizza with Tomatoes and Garlic, Grilled Eggplant Pizza, or if you like it hot, I could whip up my Poblano Pizza.
There's lots of interesting headlines that are written about you, but this one might play out as the most interesting, especially since in a brilliant social media move, the Washington Post brought it to the attention of PETA.
