Dennis Kucinich's Supporters Vow to Boycott Pizza Hut

Kucinich's supporters are upset at a Pizza Hut ad that makes him look kooky (as if that's hard to do) and are threatening to boycott the pizza chain:

Operators of several Web sites that admire the Cleveland congressman are urging readers to complain to Pizza Hut.

"I am going to encourage all Kucinich supporters to boycott your restaurant until you change your 'debate' advertising," wrote the operator of the Web site Dandelionsalad. "That was a low blow to a viable, electable presidential candidate. ... I also think Pizza Hut should publicly apologize to the Congressman!"

A viable, electable presidential candidate? Oh, please. Pizza Hut's business won't be affected in the slightest. Besides, it's kinda funny.

For God's sake, if Kucinich didn't want to be made fun of, then he shouldn't have announced to the whole world in a presidential debate that he saw UFO's. Besides, what are these folks complaining about, anyway. Kucinich is getting a lot more TV face time in this ad than he would have gotten otherwise.

We already sort of passively avoid Pizza Hut because they're owned by Pepsi. (Not a hardship in any case.) But I suppose, to do my part, I could order a couple boxes of chicken wings.

Damn! Boss amend this weeks order of pepperoni from 300lbs to 300lbs minus one pizza's allotment. There's a boycott coming!

I think it is quite funny that when I was in the AF, pilots saw UFO's all the time. What is so unusual, crazy or different about it? UFO means UNIDENTIFIED FLYING OBJECT! That could be ANYTHING! Also the Monday after the debate where Dennis made his statement, the National Press Club in DC held a forum of UFO investigators, many of them were ex AF pilots. Why is this such a big deal? Because the media makes it so and wants to discredit Dennis. I am still voting for him, he is the ONLY CANDIDATE worthy of my vote. If you check out his stand on the issues, I am sure you would feel the same way.

Scrairon:

Pizza Hut attempted to deliver a new 'Hovering Pan Pizza' to Dennis and in a panic (considering where he was it was probably drug induced) he called it a UFO instead of an Identified Flying Pizza (IFP). The campaign is getting complicated.

Yeah... it so vital to the nations well being to have a Dept. of Peace. Or piss away more congressional time on fallacious impeachment efforts.

Just for that, I should go to Pizza Hut tomorrow... and invite my friends! And let them invite theirs, and so on. Just to piss a few of these kooks off.

Not since 1997. Pepsico spun them off then, and eventually became Yum! Brands, a publicly held company. Based in Lousiville, KY, they operate A&W Restaurants, East Dawning, KFC, Long John Silver's, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and Wing Street.

They still serve Pepsi products, if you want to object to that.

Pizza Hut isn't Pepsi anymore? How about Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Oh, Pepsi contributes big time to the gun control lobby, or did, and I *thought* it was a lady from Pepsi who gave the "middle finger" speech a couple years ago, but I may be mistaken.

It's one of those things, like not watching "Law and Order" that you decide to do one day and it gets to be a habit.

Round Table Pizza is the *best*. They don't have them where I live now, so we usually go to Dion's.

In 2006 Pepsico donated no money to anti-gun groups. On the other hand then COO "middle finger" Noory is now CEO and head of the Board of Directors.
