What the Obama Campaign Spends Money On

Jim Geraghty looks at the Obama campaign spending reports and finds online advertising and other web-related efforts are the largest expenditures to date.

"Ironically, in an era of e-mail, postage was one of the campaign's largest expenditures, totaling more than $14.7 million."

Also interesting: "The Obama campaign appears to run on pizza: $2,084.37 went to Domino's Pizza, $1,774.78 went to Pizzanno's Pizza, $1,167.45 went to Papa John's, $834.03 went to Pizza Hut, and $362 went to Little Caesars. (One hopes Michelle Obama won't find out that some Obama campaign staffer in Winston-Salem, N.C., spent $239.39 at Krispy Kreme.)"
