Mitt Romney’s hosting a campaign event at Jeffco Fairgrounds in Golden, Colorado around lunchtime today, and a quick scan of Chick-fil-A’s website shows several locations within fifteen miles or so of the Romney event. So it should be easy for Romney to stop at a Chick-fil-A for a photo-op (and a sandwich!) on his way there. He could also place a large take-out order from one of the stores for folks at his campaign event. And while he’s at it, he might follow the example of a caller from Wisconsin to Laura Ingraham’s radio show yesterday, and use his credit card to pay ahead of time for the next several members of the military who show up for a meal.
Mitt munching on a Chick-fil-A sandwich … the right thing to do, and politically smart, too. And tasty.
Is it too much to hope for?
As far as I’m concerned, yesterday’s Chick-fil-A day was just a dog whistle-y way to say “God Hates Fags”, topped with two pickles and served on a bun. If you want a more sophisticated position than that, read this great essay by Wayne Self.
Also, too: Kristol wishes Romney would do this, but I bet Mitt doesn’t have the stones, and he also wouldn’t fucking eat a whole Chick-fil-A.
