Defying expectations, Gov. Mitt Romney pulled off a huge victory in last night's presidential debate, delivering a performance that might be attributable to his pre-debate meal choice (or, depending on your politics, his willingness to lie like a rug.) While the double-carb order provoked skepticism from the Twitterati, who wondered whether he was running for office or a personal best in a marathon, the dinner apparently did the trick.
Asked whether there was an uptick in pulled pork and tomato-basil pasta orders today at east coast restaurants, where lunch service is over, Lydia You of Murphy O'Brien Public Relations said there isn't any "information at this time."
According to You, the restaurant chain doesn't plan to capitalize on Romney's patronage.
"The restaurant is not taking any credit for Governor Romney's good performance and they have no plans to offer any promotions within the restaurant on Romney's meal choices," she says.
