Restaurants Sarah Palin could have eaten at during her trip to The Woodlands on Friday: Jasper's, Américas, Fleming's Steakhouse, Tommy Bahama Restaurant & Bar. (Come on, you know Sarah Palin would love Tommy Bahama.)
Restaurants Sarah Palin visited in The Woodlands: Chick-fil-A.
And hey, there's nothing wrong with that. Sarah Palin doesn't support gay marriage, and neither does the family that owns Chick-fil-A.
While there are plenty of delicious chicken alternatives in Houston for
people liberal elites who choose not to eat at Chick-fil-A, I'm not going to begrudge a spicy chicken sandwich to anyone that wants one. Live your life, Sarah Palin, sparkly cowboy T-shirt included.
Frankly, if Palin went to Ben & Jerry's then THAT would be a news story.
Frankly, if she went to Ben & Jerry's then THAT would be a news story. And kind of cool of her, to be all, "Hey, sometimes ice cream is just ice cream and I'm going to eat it because I like it and not because it matters to be that Ben and/or Jerry are Occupy Wall Street commies, because people shouldn't be afraid to have both a business and a political opinion." That would have been a real ace move. Oh well.
Also, if Chick-fil-A was running for U.S. Senate, based purely on Facebook "likes" from Sarah Palin followers, it would easily beat Ted Cruz, the Republican senate candidate that Palin was in The Woodlands to campaign for. Over a quarter of a million people have liked Palin's political dinner decision, while only about 8,000 have liked her Cruz endorsement.
It's impossible to know how Chick-fil-A would poll against David Dewhurst, but my money's on the spicy chicken sandwich.
