Republicans Eat The Lunches They Deserve

by evanmcmurry

In Dana Milbank’s piece detailing the inability of tea party congressmen to do anything to renovate their image, we find this nugget, literally:

House conservatives met Wednesday for the latest installment of their “Conversations with Conservatives” luncheon series, but they took their places on the dais without sampling the Chick-fil-A sandwiches and nuggets on offer.

Good Lord, still with the Chick-Fil-A! Guys, I hereby absolve you of holding up your end in this particular cultural tug-o-war. You have my permission to eat better, non-fried lunches, and nobody will accuse you of supporting sodomy. Jesus Christ.

One Grudge Sandwich, Please

Buried in Dave Weigel’s post about movement Republicans:

“We’ve heard from multiple sources that someone walked in with a list of votes and said, ‘if you didn’t [fulfill] a particular scorecard on the ‘right’ votes—which by the way, in most cases, were not the conservative positions—we’re gonna remove you from committee.” The activists quietly chewed Chick-fil-A sandwiches as Huelskamp scorched his party leaders. “It confirms, in my mind, Americans’ deepest suspicions about Washington. It’s petty, it’s vindictive, and if you have any conservative principles, you will be punished for it.”

This Chick-fil-A thing just ain’t dying, is it?
