Scribes Indulge in McRibs

Weird but true, in recent days Washington journalists have had a hankering for McRibs.

NJ‘s Sue Davis started it on Election Day by tweeting, “Election Day? Schmelection Schmay. The McRib is back!” Then The Hill‘s White House correspondent Sam Youngman wrote about it on Twitter late last week, saying “First order of business with POTUS out of the country? Find out how many McRibs can I eat in one sitting.” Youngman says a number of journos have been tweeting about the tantalizing McRibs. “They’re freaking awesome,” the Kentucky native said. “And I’m a BBQ snob.” (As we speak, Youngman is going out to get the McRib sandwich.)

And on Sunday on WETA’s “White House Chronicle” with hosts Llewellyn King and Linda Gasparello, Sirus XM Radio’s Adam Belmar remarked that that McRib was among his better moments on Election Day. “I would say as a high point on Election Day didn’t just bring new blood to Congress,” he said. “I was on my way home and discovered that McDonalds has reintroduced the McRib. It’s an America I want to live in.”
