Mexican food for Obama!

Chips ahoy!

Barack Obama has been losing ground to John McCain in many national polls among likely voters -- but he's apparently way out front among Mexican food. At least that's one way to interpret the bizarre set of just-posted videos below, which date from the Democratic National Convention. In them, a variety of people declare that they're "Nachos for Obama!," or "Taco Salad for Obama!" or "Burritos for Obama!" What's it mean? Hell if I know -- but apparently frijoles and chimichangas remain firmly in the Republican camp.
