Mayor Menino won’t bite on offer of Chick-fil-A sandwich

Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino can’t decide whether to back Scott Brown or Elizabeth Warren, but he is sure about one thing: He will never endorse a Chick-fil-A sandwich, even if it’s in front of his nose.

Menino, who led the protest against the fast-food chain because of the CEO’s stance against gay marriage, is staying in a hotel building in Charlotte that includes a dreaded Chick-fil-A just downstairs from the hotel lobby.

So the Truth Squad thought that would be a good opportunity to make a peace offering to the mayor — a No. 1 combo meal sandwich on a whole-wheat bun.

But Menino did not take the bait. The mayor actually made a face and recoiled when presented with the tasty snack, and refused to even touch it.

The Herald’s Joe Battenfeld offers Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino a Chick-fil-A sandwich yesterday at the Democratic National Convention, and Menino gives the meal a thumb down.

I’ll bet he’s tasted one before; he just didn’t know it at the time.

Who cares. The country is in trouble and this guy is talking about chicken sandwiches. Yes, I know Chick-fil-A stands for the good side of America. Guess what this twit stands for? It ain’t America.

These Leftists today are so ideological, they remind me of the Communists back during the Cold War.

It’s truly scary, and we are actually electing these type of people to positions where they make decisions that affect our lives.

Potato head Menino's Chicago counterpart.

Obama's ex-COS, CHICAGO MAYOR RAHM SPOKE OUT ABOUT "CHICAGO VALUES" wrt the recent Chick-Fil-a controversy......

Mayor Rahm danced into the controversy after Alderman Proco Joe Moreno (1st ward) had publicly announced his opposition to Chick-Fil-A opening in his ward.

Mayor Rham chuckled while doing a graceful plie: "It's easy to do business in Chicago when you know 'the rules.' Chick-Fil-A can open in our town as long as it adopts 'Chicago Values.' "

(1) weekly cash pay off to the alderman;

(2) hire six of the alderman's friends who work only random days of the month,

(3) BIG AL from the Mayor's office picks up all cash in brown paper bags at CFA's back door,

(4) Chick Fil A staff trained to shoot 10-12 customers per month,

(5) Any CFA customers actually killed must be registered to vote as Democrats,

(6) $100,00 campaign contribution to Obama,

(7) free food to Jesse Jackson, Jr, who is now "convalescing," b/c he screwed up buying Obama's Senate seat.

=========================================

THIS JUST IN: The Chicago Ballet Ensemble announces that
Mayor Rahm Emanuel will debut in the presentation of a new
Chicago ballet: "The Godfather--Bang-Bang, You're Dead. "

Mayor Rahm in dress rehearsal.

The same might be said for other Massachusetts all stars such as Teddy, Barney, Gary and John Francois.

I feel sorry for the chicken that sacrificed her life to be in that sandwich.

Children are starving in China, or is it Africa and would eat that sandwich no matter what was connected to it.

This mayor is teaching children to be wasteful with their food.

Some people deserve to starve.
No wonder why Americans are hated abroad.
Such a wasteful society.

Menino was just on an episode of Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives. They were at some Italian restaurant in East Boston. Menino was eating at a table with Guy Fieri and Menino had either pasta or a piece of meatball stuck to his mouth as he spoke.

What a slob.

They *are* the Soviets. The transition of the Soviet regime ideology to the US has been extensively documented.

Quite a list...
And to be fair and balanced, you could throw in Welds (?) as the Pubbies rep.
So if these are the best MA can come up with, how can we believe Red Sox fans have any brains either?
(My hubs is one...)

The Red Sox seem to once again be cursed!
It was after they did THIS that their collapse began last September. (...and continues THIS season!).

“See, homos? I’m a good little boy-—I dance to your tune and show my approval of men messing with each other’s filthy anal areas!”

These people make me nauseous.
