Does Ed Randazzo Believe That Rush Limbaugh, Lindsey Graham, and Mike Huckabee Are Not Conservative?

Ed Randazzo takes on Mitt Romney for not eating at Chick-fil-A:
Rick Santorum, Sarah Palin and Pat Boone rushed to show their support for Chick-fil-A even as Romney tried to distance himself from the controversy.
Pat Boone? The third best example Ed can find is Pat Boone? Can anyone under 40 name a single song the guy recorded? Jon Stewart found at least three other political figures that have been relevant in this century.

I suppose Ed gave John Thune a pass; the company's website doesn't list any South Dakota locations. This fact does prompt a question: Did Mr. Randazzo go out of state to eat at a Chick-fil-A or is he not a true conservative either?

As a side note, South Dakota State University apparently has a tentative agreement to bring the chain to its student union.

Maybe Romney just doesn't like chicken sandwiches?

If I remember right, there was action by students t prevent them from coming into SDSU.

I was thinking that Romney thinks that eating at Chick-fil-A would make him seem disloyal to Jimmy John's.

I was also wondering if he couldn't eat at any fast food chain that Bain didn't invest in at some point in the past twenty years. I'm told those executive compensation packages are complicated. :)

Also, given the family history in the Mexican Mormon colonies, Romney might prefer to shy away from "married to the first wife" discussions.

As far as SDSU is concerned, I saw signs about the chain coming to campus the last time I was at SDSU. The link goes to a Huff Po article with a slide of a screen shot showing an online petition. I havn't heard anyting about results of the petition.

This is why Jon Stewart is closer to journalism than Fox, CNN and NPR...he will skewer either side for its stupidity, not just the people with whom he disagrees.
