Reid turns nose up at Papa Johnís Pizza
The Hill ^ | 1/14/2009 | Betsy Rothstein

Posted on 01/19/2009 5:54:19 AM PST by markomalley

Papa John’s Pizza is celebrating its 25th anniversary, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid couldn’t care less.

During an interview with The Hill last week, Reid (D-Nev.) stopped mid-sentence to check his BlackBerry for what could have been a very important e-mail.

A message from Rahm Emanuel? A breaking development on the Senate floor? Not quite.

“Help Us Celebrate Our 25th Anniversary With a $0.25 Pizza!” read the e-mail from Papa John’s.

Reid snapped, “Purchase a pizza for a quarter? I don’t like pizza, and I especially don’t like Papa John’s Pizza!”

Reid then tried to get back to the question at hand, but his pizza rant threw him off.

After a moment, Reid asked, “Where were we?”

Tish Muldoon, a spokeswoman for Papa John’s, said that the majority leader must have previously ordered from Papa John’s or opted in for company e-mails, because the restaurant chain does not send out spam.

Regardless, Muldoon said, “We would love to become his favorite pizza. The next time, if he wants, the pizza is on us.”

I'm not a fan of Papa John's, but if Harry Reid doesn't like it, they've got to be doing SOMETHING right.

What a stupid thing for a poitician to do. It shows the lack of diplomacy and class. I can’t believe the bunch of nitwits we have leading this country.

I'll take a free one if you're just giving them away.

What a coincidence.

Reid does not like Papa John’s pizza.

And I loathe Harry Reid.

Ain’t life strange?

I’m wondering if a disgruntled former employee signed him up to get calls from Papa Johns. LOL

I suspect that his tastes in food run more to green Jell-O salads and funeral (Tator Tots) casseroles. ;>}

hey fugetaboutit.

youse guys can’t get good pizza from a chain!

you can only get good pizza from parlors in NY, and only in the outer boroughs, and in the close in suburbs. Most of Manhattan is one crappy RAYs or another with the exception of Mulberry St.
