So Mumbles Menino in Boston and now Rahm 'the Godfather' Emmanuel are both dancing back and putting out damage control over their highly anti-First Amendment comments about not allowing Chick-Fil-A restaurants to open within the borders of their cities.
Now I've mentioned before, I do luvs me my Chick-Fil-A. I find that every store I've been in has friendly, well-spoken staff, is clean, and the food is great. The COO walks his talk (being closed on Sunday's for example) and I have no problem with that anymore than I have a problem with the local Jehovah's Witnesses coming by to drop off "the Watchtower".
I think that the mayors of both cities were informed by their respective legal teams that Chick-Fil-A could own both cities (although why they'd want them is another matter) since, in their official capacities, they are advocating blatantly illegal actions--penalizing someone for their opinion--something that liberals feel that they can get away with for some reason. So they are fancy-footing the clean-up as fast as they can. And for some reason this song came to mind....
