The BiPartisan Sandwich

Deborah Baic/The Globe and Mail


Multi-grain bread

La Quercia Prosciutto

Vermont butter 

organic lettuce

tomato jam

pickled hot peppers

roasted cherry tomatoes


Democrat Side: Iowa’s La Quercia Prosciutto, artisanal Vermont butter and organic lettuce – grown on a school rooftop if possible. Please share with folks who don’t have a sandwich.

Republican Side: Rile it up with some sweet, sour and spicy: tomato jam, pickled hot peppers, roasted cherry tomatoes. Throw on whatever you want, don’t let me tell you what to do. (But don’t come running if you get a stomach ache.)

Slap the two together and eat.
