State Treasurer and Democratic gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio told President Obama to “shove it” after hearing that Obama was coming to Rhode Island without an endorsement for him. The Associated Press notes that Obama might be staying out of the R.I. endorsement business because of key support in his 2008 election from independent Lincoln Chafee ’75 P’14, a former GOP senator. Caprio probably can’t be too happy either that a new Rasmussen poll shows Chafee up seven points, giving Nate Silver’s computer reason to change its mind and declare Chafee a light favorite. Or maybe the prez is still salty that hoops buddy and R.I. Attorney General Patrick Lynch ’87 is not on the ballot.
Ratty Vs. V-Dub, 12/7
Ratty: Shepherd’s Pie, Grilled Chicken Alfredo Sandwich, Chocolate Chunk and Pretzel Cookies
V-Dub: Ham and Bean Soup, Nacho Bar, Mexicali Macaroni Bake, Raspberry Crumble Bar
Advantage: V-Dub. Hold on to your pants, kids. You have serious bullets to dodge at either eatery, but the nacho bar is the tastiest option to avoid some serious toilet timin'.
