A shmear of tofu
Forget about Governor Benson’s by now notorious decision to leave the Republican convention in New York City a day before President Bush’s acceptance speech – he was reported as being “bored,” at least when it came to some of the festivities.
F&J may have a little different spin on the whole affair, and an article in the Concord Monitor holds a clue:
“The governor drove in from said Holiday Inn early yesterday morning, grabbing a wheat bagel with tofu spread on the way. He arrived a few minutes late to a delegation breakfast where he and former mayor Rudolph Giuliani were to speak …” wrote reporter Lisa Wangsness.
A wheat bagel with tofu spread? In New York City? Maybe he was asked to leave the Big Apple – before he ordered a pastrami sandwich with mayo.
