Holy relic goes on sale

Ben Smith notes that the partially eaten waffle that Obama was trying to eat instead of answering a question on Jimmy Carter and Hamas is now up for sale on eBay.
THIS IS BARAK HUSSEIN OBAMA'S BREAKFAST FROM THIS MORNING, 4-21-08 AT THE GLIDER DINER IN SCRANTON, PA. WINNER GETS HIS USED DINER PLATE WITH HIS USED SILVERWARE AND UN EATEN PORTION OF HIS WAFFLE & SAUSAGE LINK. IT WAS WRAPPED WITH SARAN WRAP IMMEDIATELY AFTER HIS DEPARTURE AND IS NOW IN THE FREEZER AWAITING THE LUCKY WINNERS BID!!! THIS IS 100% AUTHENTIC AS YOU CAN SEE HE WAS AT THE DINER BY THE PICTURE AND IT WAS ON ALL LOCAL NEWS STATIONS. THIS PLATE WAS WRAPPED BY THE WAITRESS THAT SERVED HIM. GUARANTEED AUTHENTIC, HIS DNA IS ON THE SILVERWARE. ALL PROCEEDS GO TO HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT!!!! HAHA
His DNA is on the silverware! That's reason enough to start bidding. As of 12:50 this afternoon, the bidding is at $177.50.

UPDATE: The bidding got as high as $20,100, but the auction has now been taken down.
After a flood of calls to Glider Diner, Sen. Barack Obama's waffles are now off eBay.

John Oakes, of Chinchilla, said the negative calls diner owner Charles LeStrange received wasn't worth the publicity and money that could be possibly raised. Even though it had reached $20,100 in a day.

"It had nothing to do with him (Mr. LeStrange), but everyone was blaming him. So we took it down," said Mr. Oakes.
