Romney campaign orders fried chicken for lunch amid ‘Sesame Street’ furor


In an apparent escalation in the war of words between the Obama and Romney campaigns over whether PBS should continue to receive government funding, the Washington Free Beacon has obtained an exclusive photo of the Romney campaign’s staff lunch today.

The Romney campaign ordered lunch from the popular and tasty fried chicken chain Popeye’s Chicken and Biscuits, delivered to the campaign headquarters in both spicy and mild varieties.

A campaign source declined to say on the record whether the poultry chow-down was an official response to a widely panned Obama campaign ad featuring the Sesame Street character Big Bird.
