Cake or Pie

Today Senator Obama bought cake, Pound Cake, for some folks in a diner.

Kinda cool.
I love pound cake.
Paid for it with his own money, no campaign staffer running behind him to deal with that and on a bill of $26 he left a $10 in the tip cup.
I think you can tell a whole lot about a person by how they tip...or don't.

Of course it also got me thinking what is more elitist?
Pie or cake.
Will Chris Matthews deride his decision to treat those people to cake rather then pie?
Josh would say pie, but he thinks everything is better with pie.
I think Pound Cake is pretty working class.
What about you?

On teh otehr hand, PIE rocks: blackberry, esp., another specailty of Ma Janey's back in the day.

Tiramisu is elitist, doncha think?

Everything IS better with pie...but the pound cake can really be stretched to feed the masses.
