Two of my guilty pleasures are Snoopy’s hot dogs and Chick-Fil-A. So what’s a good Democrat to do when the Snoopy’s owner attacks President Obama and Chick-Fil-A’s owner condemns gay marriage?
I’m reminded of McDonald’s some years back. The founder and owner, Ray Kroc, was a big buddy and big contributor to Richard Nixon. Many Democrats, as a result, elected to eschew Big Macs.
Kroc died in 1984. In 1987, his widow Joan gave the Democratic Party $1 million – to that date, the party’s biggest donation ever. Over the years, she also gave millions more to hospitals, universities, children’s charities and nuclear-disarmament groups.
The lesson: Eat up. Enjoy the hot dogs and chicken sandwiches. Good karma will come around.
