Big surprise! Obama gets the downtown loft vote

November 4, 2008 |  2:45 pm

If the vote for President can be judged by small, silly things, then the availability of free soda at one downtown pizza restaurant is a good omen for Barack Obama.

Pitfire Pizza is giving away free soda to anyone who voted. They can choose Obama cola or McCain cola. But in this tally, the runaway favorite is Obama cola, which is disappearing off the shelf. McCain cola piles up untouched.

How bad is McCain cola doing? They are tearing off his labels to make them "independents."
