America is About to Become a Better Place

America is on the brink of a historic presidential election, and the world is watching. And with less than 28 hours to go before polls start closing on the east coast, this hard-hitting headline caught my attention among’s top news stories this morning:

Twinkies Get Slimmed Down

That’s right, America. No matter who wins tomorrow’s presidential race, we already know two things: The disasterous reign of George W. Bush is nearing its end, and our nation is about to become a better place with 100-calorie Hostess Twinkies.

Interviewed in CNN’s skinny Twinkie news flash was David Leavitt, vice president of snack marketing for Hostess. Vice president of snack marketing? How do I get that job? And does Hostess market anything other than snacks?

Here is my favorite line from the article:

“Leavitt said Hostess is hoping to make more of the 100-calorie
products, honing in on their portability since they’re easily taken to
the office for lunch.”

Yes… because those original 150-calorie Twinkies were sooooo cumbersome.
