President Obama ordered $200 worth of fried seafood at Nancy’s in Vineyard Haven yesterday and the Track Girls do not approve: “Hey, we’ve all done it. Burp. But we’re not on the stump for every artery-clogged citizen in the country to have free medical care. And isn’t Barry’s BFF - Chicago doc Eric Whitaker, who has been a constant companion on the Rock this week - a big preventive-medicine guy?” So now a man isn’t allowed to enjoy a regional delicacy on his vacation? We here at Grub Street Boston strongly support the consumption of as much fried seafood as possible while down the Vineyard, but we must chastise Obama for one thing: he ordered fried clam strips. Mr. President, when in New England, go whole belly or go home.
