Some silly summer let's-pretend Presidential voting:
  • Family Circle's Cookie Cook-Off: Laura Bush's Oatmeal-Chocolate Chunk cookies versus Teresa Heinz Kerry's Pumpkin Spice cookies.
  • Bobblelection 2004: baseball fans in seven states got to pick which free bobblehead candidate they wanted.
The cookie contest ended August 1; results will be announced in the November issue. Although Family Circle claims tasters have been evenly divided between the cookies, Heinz Kerry recently disavowed "her" recipe:
Somebody at my office gave that recipe out and, in fact, I think somebody really made it on purpose to give a nasty recipe. I never made pumpkin cookies; I don't like pumpkin spice cookies.
Probaby not a good quote from the camp that's trying to disavow the flip-flopping meme.

Bush won the Bobblelection four states to three (Kerry edged out Bush in Minnesota: 51-49%). On the open market, the Kerry doll is more expensive than Bush so voters should have picked him as the freebie. That is, assuming they act rationally.
