If you've ever been drunk -- late at night in the Pennsylvania-New Jersey area -- then you're probably aware of the awesomeness that is Wawa.
For the unaware, Wawa is a chain of convenience stores all along the east coast that is mainly clustered in the those two states.
They're like nicer than 7-Eleven stores and they sell fresh sub sandwiches, a.k.a. hoagies, made to order. Just ask any one from the area, people love them.
So, it's a big deal that Mitt Romney decided to do a campaign stop at a Wawa to get a meatball hoagie in Pennsylvania -- because they're so popular with the common folk and because of the infamous cookie-gate fiasco, which many claim highlighted Mitt's understanding of regular people and what they eat.
Of course, there were a couple of hiccups:
- The original Wawa that Mitt was planning to visit already had a Democratic Party event (with former Pennsylvania governor and Barack Obama supporter, Ed Rendell, and 250 Mitt protestors), so he had to find another location on the fly. Luckily, there's a Wawa pretty much every 15 miles or so in Bucks County.
- Then, there was the moment when Mitt mispronounced the name of the store as "Wawas" at the beginning of his speech. Though he did compliment the chain as being a leader in innovation. "People in the private sector learn how to compete. It's time to bring some competition to the federal government and to get it smaller and to have it respond to the customers, which are you," he said.
Hey, at lease Mitt is trying. We've got to give him kudos for that!
