John Kerry's "food and comfort" list


In response to our post titled "Dick Cheney, rock star," a reader named Russell e-mailed us John Kerry's "food and comfort" list, from his 2004 campaign. Russell claims that the list was sent to him by a friend who traveled with Kerry. Russell asks, "Can you imagine what our country would be like if this guy were President?" We're not quite sure where Russell is coming from (is he pro-Bush or pro-Kerry?), but we rather enjoy imagining what this country would be like with a broccoli-lover in charge.

Here's what else is on the list:

Breakfast –
Apple juice
Low fat strawberry or raspberry yogurt
Quaker oatmeal – plain (brown sugar or maple syrup on the side)
Sliced fruit plate
Wheat toast
Wheaties, Total or Special K with 2% milk

If someone is going to pick something up and bring it to him directly (so it doesn’t get cold):
Pancakes
Sausage or Bacon

Lunch / Dinner
Lighter fare:
Cobb Salads – balsamic vingraette AND ranch dressing on the side
Grilled Chicken / Grilled Tuna / Grilled Shrimp Caesar salads
Vegetable Beef / Beef Barley Soup / Chicken noodle
Note: JK hates celery.

NEVER order: Tomato based products, citrus OR sandwiches.

Also:
Meatloaf with mashed potatoes
Roasted Chicken
Filet mignon – medium
Grilled tuna, halibut or chicken with a starch and vegetables (veer away from heavy sauces)
Veggie stir fry with chicken or shrimp
Chinese food: Szechwan string beens, shrimp and broccoli

Snacks:
Fruit (JK likes bananas, apples, oranges, grapes)
Milano cookies
Chocolate chip cookies

Hold Rooms:
Hot water
Honey and Lemon

Beverages:
Bottled Water – Poland Springs, no Dasani or Evian
Apple Juice – Martinelli’s or Nantucket Nectar

Hotels:
Down Pillows (where possible)
Newspapers: NY Times, Washington Post, Local papers (early morning)

Bus:
Vitamin waters
Protein bars (Balance bars, yogurt peanut, almond brownie)
Boost (weight maintenance drinks – they look like milkshakes) – chocolate, strawberry
Whole grain bread (from bakery, organic)
Peanut Butter (Creamy, Skippy only)
Smuckers Raspberry preserves

Yep, he's a pussy ;-)

Our Bushie boy likes Tex-mex, cheeseburgers and peanut butter sandwiches. Now THAT's a man!

LOL. Hey, maybe the 2008 presidential debates should consist of food fights instead of the usual political rhetoric? The Republicans' soft, mushy burgers would be no match for the Democrats' rock-hard carrots. (Sexual innuendo unintended, but apropos.)
