Price of Politics, Etc.: Rants and Casey's pizza

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.

... Rants was the guest on "Iowa Press", which taped today. Radio Iowa's blogger extraordinaire Kay Henderson wrote about the conversation with Rants following the taping. One morsel was especially delicious. Here the sentence she wrote that caught me: "This campaign is going to be running on Diet Coke and Casey's pizza and ethanol the whole way," Rants said. Two things... Rants famously downed Mt. Dew after Mt. Dew through long statehouse sessions. I thought he had switched to Diet Dew. But Diet Coke? Maybe he really has changed. O.K., fine. Who cares? He also touted Casey's pizza. Again, who cares? Well, that pizza is known all over Iowa to be one of the most famous treats at Casey's General Stores, a chain founded by an Iowan by the name of Don Lamberti, the father of Jeff, another Iowan thinking of running for governor.
