The latest New York Times report on presidential-campaign spending has been published and two cold hard facts stand out.
One, Romney and the RNC have $62 million more in the bank than Obama and the DNC, mainly because the president’s massive grassroots organization is exceptionally costly to run. Two, Romney’s campaign spent nearly $500 at a Chick-Fil-A in Atlanta. On July 23 no less, when a whirlwind of liberal complaints nearly drove Chick-Fil-A out of secular coastal existence.
According to Google Maps, there are 10 Chick-Fil-As in Atlanta. It’s not listed in the report, but I’m going to go out on a limb and guess this is the Chick-Fil-A at the CNN Center, which is situated next to luxe hotel The Omni—a favorite chain of the Romney campaign, according to Think Progress.
This Chick-Fil-A allows online ordering, so I tried to order $500 worth of gay-hating fast food. This proved difficult, considering the most expensive thing on the menu is $4.49, which will treat you to a 12-pack of savory chicken nuggets.
Here’s my order:
I left 30 bucks for some sodas and fries. The tax came out $34.83 but I’m assuming Romney’s campaign only paid about 13% of it, if they paid any tax at all.
What’s this prove? The Romney campaign is not eating clean, and the potential benefits of P90X will be far outweighed by their carb-heavy intake. Also, they likely outspent Epic Meal Time when they did the fast-food lasagna thing.
