The unsung food heroes of the debt debate

Click to listen to the CNN Radio podcast:

The long road to compromise over America's debt ceiling was paved with harsh words, hard work and, of course, takeout dinners.

Beyond the headlines and the partisan attacks were the real people doing the work of governing - and working up quite an appetite. And those folks feeding the hungry mouths on Capitol Hill kept things moving. As one 18-hour day rolled into another, takeout kept people going.

"Pizza seems to be the food of choice when they are arguing," Ron Neumeyer, part owner of Armand's Pizza franchise in Washington D.C. explained to CNN’s Lisa Desjardins. Guys like Neumeyer, those veteran caterers of late-night policy debates, know to keep an eye on the news because intractable debate means an uptick in orders.

In the midst of the debt ceiling debates, four-term Missouri Democrat Rep. Emanuel Cleaver took to Twitter to express his deep disgust with the terms of the deal, Tweeting in quick succession:

"This deal is a sugar-coated satan sandwich. If you lift the bun, you will not like what you see."

"This debt deal is antithetical to everything the great religions of the world teach, which is take care of the poor, aged, vulnerable."

"Still, I do not want to see the economy fall into an abyss. Which is what would happen if we were to default."

All matter for serious, substantive discussion to be sure, but we kept going back to that sandwich part. What's in a Satan sandwich? Deviled ham? Goat horn peppers? Marmite? (Surely that is not the foodstuff of the angels.)
