[digg-reddit-me]Ms. Clinton lost the endorsement battle for the famous New York chain “home of the $3.50 ‘Recession Special’ (two franks and a 14-ounce drink)”, Gray’s Papaya.
The prominent chain instead endorsed Mr. Obama with large signs on all of its prominent stores in Manhattan. Mr. Gray, who is 71, tried to downplay the significance of his endorsement: “I am often wrong, unfortunately. I think I’m going to be right this time, though.”
I used to pass a Gray’s Papaya on the way to work every day – but upon switching jobs, I no longer do.
So now, we add to the unlikely endorsements Mr. Obama has managed to garner – the Teamsters, Louis Farrakhan, David Duke, Bill Clinton in 2004, every newspaper in the country except the New York Times – and Gray’s Papaya.
