special delivery – update

Ian’s Pizza – “Donations taken from all 50 states and over 15 countries!”

(Make that 16 countries (at least) – I have it from a very reliable source that Dublin, Ireland just ordered the Wisconsin protestors a pizza. The guy on the phone said: “We’ll fit Ireland in, I promise, but we’ll need a second board – it’s gone crazy!”)

Pizza: The food of love? Who knew?!

    Earlier they weren’t taking any more orders (read that at bwd’s)… It is all just amazing and wonderful what folks will unite to accomplish together- I’m really proud of the human race right now (except for a certain Libyan dictator).

    This makes me SMILE. Does anyone know if donations are being taken to support the protestors beyond this particular effort?

    Their latest tweet says “Due to the large number of pizzas ordered and the dwindling numbers at the Capitol we will be closing the phone…”

    I have a feeling they have created a monster! I have received no less than 4 emails about this, seen it on countless blogs and Lawrence O’Donnell featured it on his show tonight. So cool, though. What an amazing outpouring of support and an awesome group of pizza makers.

    On OFA we also listed: To supply protesters with WATER contact (Capitol Center Foods at 608-255-2616). To supply protesters with FOOD contact (Burrito Drive at 608-260-8586, Silver Mine Subs at 608-286-1000, Ian’s Pizza at 608-257-9248, Pizza Di Roma at 608-268-0900, or Asian Kitchen at 608-255-0571

    We found out the Ian’s Pizza was overwhelmed with orders.

    I am so proud of Wisconsin it’s like what happen in 1962-64 in this country. Everyone stood up for each other and refused to see anymore Americans mis-treated

    This is just wonderful, impressive, heartwarming… all good things wrapped together and packaged as HOPE. This is where we differ from the Tea Party, POSITIVITY!

    This is really heartwarming to see all the states along with all the countries. There are a lot of good people. It seems as if our world is coming together to fight for justice. Ummmmmmm, I use to know a Jackie in Ireland. Also, isn’t

      I cannot imagine so many different countries supporting the protesters in WI when GWB was in office. It’s amazing how comfortable the people in these countries feel reaching out to the WI protesters! I never want to hear anyone on the right ever say again that our president has ruined America’s image in foreign countries. Rumsfeld needs to know about this after making his stupid claim that GWB was as well regarded in foreign countries as PBO this past Sunday on one of the talking heads programs. Sometimes stubborn denial makes a person prey to extreme stupidity (I’m talking to you, Rummy.)
