(Newser) – Under fire from bloggers and the press for its sausage-or-pepperoni debate contest, Pizza Hut has decided to bag the whole thing. The chain had initially promised free pizza for life to any audience member at tomorrow night's presidential debate who asked the burning question, "Sausage or pepperoni?" Observers slammed the restaurant for seeking to cash in on the election. The chain now says it will offer the prize to a randomly-chosen online contestant, the AP reports.

Great speech writers and the ability to deliver politically correct and nice sounding words make Obama unbeatable. Romney is too clever to be trusted by most voters, they are like chickens that fear the smart fox.
