Last weekend, Youthlarge and I finally made it to the Chick-fil-A in downtown Silver Spring. If memory serves correctly, I had never been to one until a few years back when travelling the Southlands on Baseball Trip '02 with Jamie. Last year, before embarking on the baseball trip Marc did some research on various locations of the fine establishment along our route. I consider myself an easily won convert to the brilliance of the place.
Imagine my disappointment when I discovered during last week's visit that they offer a breakfast promotion with the conservative paper The Washington Times. It was something like "Buy a breakfast combo, get a free copy of Washington's leading paper" type bullshit. I also noticed that The Washington Post was available a mere few steps away- but out in the cold in a lowly vending box.
Upon arriving back in New York, I did some research but I couldn't find the smoking gun that proves that Chick-fil-A donates to the Republican party. But how could they not if they are affiliating themselves with The Washington Times? All of which makes me realize that on next year's trip, the less principled amongst us- Youthlarge, Balgavy, and I will be munching on the tasty brilliance of Chick-fil-A while Apes will be left outside with his face pressed against the stinkin' Republican glass. I will feel guilty, but sometimes my taste buds are more important than my principles.
If this picture doesn't cry out "Red State" I don't know what does.
