- Food « Use the Best Ingredients
The former CEO of Godfather's
Pizza ought to know something about pizza. In an April 27, 2011
interview with Democracy in Action, exploratory presidential candidate
Herman Cain talked about how he brought the company back from near
bankruptcy and offered other observations on quick service food:
I got back to basics. They
had made the operations too complex, they had made the marketing too
complex, they had added too many things to the menu. We got back
to basics. And that was eliminating three different varieties of
crust that we had, and getting back to the basic Godfather's Pizza
crust, make sure we put those top quality Godfather's Pizza
ingredients. And when you simplify your menu, you simplify your
operations and you make it easier for people to make the pizza right
every time. We got back to basics. I called it focus,
focus, focus. That was the key.
And I'm going to apply that
same principle as President of the United States. We've gotten
away from the Constitution, we've gotten away from limited
government. How about let's go back to limited government; the
same approach. more

Punsters have had
some fun with Cain's candidacy as these comments from

A pizza mogul running for president? I never
sausage a thing!
TheGreat Gazoo promoted by onebadclam
There's mush room for him in the GOP tent, but he'll
be peppered with questions.
Cheeses! What a bad pun.
@Pickled: He'll never raise enough dough to
win. I predict he'll last 30 minutes or less in the primaries.
