The McRib is back! Which must mean the GOP is headed for big gains in today’s election.

Here’s a total oddity, from a story about the return of McDonald’s cult sandwich, the McRib. It will be available at McDonald’s around the country for a limited time this year:

McDonald’s spokeswoman Tara Hayes told AFP that the McRib’s limited availability “helps to keep fans passionate about the product.” Only a sandwich “so delicious, so special, so elusive, and so legendary could create such a widespread affection among its fans,” Hayes said, pointing out the last time it had been offered in all restaurants nationwide was in 1994.

Hmmm — 1994? I seem to recall Republicans did pretty well that that year at the polls. Coincidence? You make the call!
