Quick: What line in Obama's speech in Raleigh tickled the blogs?

Posted by on Wed, Oct 29, 2008 at 3:37 PM

Barack Obama's "closing argument," as delivered today in Raleigh, covered all the bases: Unity & Change; McCain's so Bush-like; no more "trickle-down"; it won't be easy; and on policies: tax cuts for 95%-jobs-health care-renewable energy-education-end Iraq war/put Al-Qaeda out of business. Oh, and Hope.

So what single line is making headlines? If you were there, you know this --

Yes, it was the PB & J:

"By the end of the week, he'll be accusing me of being a secret communist because I shared my toys in kindergarten," Obama said, as per the prepared remarks. Then he added: "I shared my -- I shared my peanut butter and jelly sandwich." (from TPM Election Central)
