A Detroit-area pizzeria is stirring up some controversy by offering free pizza to anyone who brings in a McCain/Palin sign. According to the pizzeria’s owner, after McCain essentially gave up on Michigan by canceling any further visits or ads, she encouraged McCain supporters to give up on the candidate and bring in their signs.
The problem here is that once you present this promotion to the average broke, pizza-hungry teenager, it takes him or her approximately three nanoseconds to come up with this plan of action: find nearest McCain/Palin sign, swipe it, get free pizza. Local Republicans are, naturally, upset with their disappearing signs. The pizzeria owner says she never advocated theft and clearly stated on the promotion to “bring in your McCain sign,” but it’s hard to believe she didn’t see this coming.
