There are No Free Waffles for Barack

Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama D-Ill., serves burgers to Alisha Cordell from Raleigh, N.C., during a lunch with supporters at Ball State University in Muncie, Ind., Saturday, April 12, 2008

This is too funny not to spread around:

There are no free lunches in politics. Barack Obama may have learned that about breakfasts as well when he stopped by the Four Seasons Family Restaurant on Tuesday for some last-minute politicking.

On the day of primary elections in Indiana and North Carolina, Obama trolled for last-minute undecided votes in this Indianapolis suburb.

"Take this, we'll seal the deal," a man in a booth eating breakfast with three male companions told the Illinois senator as they chatted about the election. He held up their breakfast check. Agreeing, Obama snatched the bill quickly.

"I've got your check," Obama said.

The man, Steve Czajkowski, 39, tried to grab it back, telling Obama he was only joking and that he didn't expect the presidential candidate to pay for their breakfasts. But Obama persisted and walked off grasping the check firmly.

Czajkowski, who told reporters the check totaled about $25, said, "I like his message. I like the way he's running his campaign."

But had Obama won his vote? Well, not exactly, said Czajkowski, who said he was working as a pastor at the Greenwood Community Church,

"I'm Canadian," he said.

A Canadian who, perhaps, understands that there is no such thing as "a free lunch".
