I don't know about Kansas City, or the other BBQ Capitals in the USA, but no candidate for a State-wide office in Kentucky, who really plans to win would not include some footage of the candidate at the Moonlite BBQ
in his TV Ads...preferably with a cup of "Burgoo" in his hand ! AND he would be talking to all the 'Joe-The Plumber' stereotypes they could round up for the clip.
And on this side of the river one congressional district in Indiana has the Rep. Challenger Candidate using footage of the Dem. Incumbent eating Chinese food with Chopsticks while on a visit to China, as an example of the misplaced loyalties of the guy currently in office. This doesn't translate well in my description, but the TV ADs make the Congressman look like a Lobbyist for the Chinese Government. I guess the other guy should have a KFC leg in his hand ???
It also strikes my funny bone that the clips being used in Offense and Defense before the election will be 'trophies' on the walls of the various restaurants AFTER the person WINS !!! Seldom do we see a follow-up wall record of a losing candidate !! I haven't seen a restaurant with a Photo of a "Loser" from a major political election in all of my RF travels.
