    First one opened around here and they lined-up 24-hours in advance just to get one of their delicious chicken sandwiches.

    Furthermore, I thought Chick-fil-A was anathema to progressives; however, there they were in droves, all anxiously waiting stuff their pierced-and-tattooed faces with the glorious Chick-fil-A.

    I have never even thought of Chick-fil-A but now I am dying to try one.

    That is Apple-level marketing. How do they do it? What's going on?

    I love chick-fil-a! I had some in Colorado recently. Really busy inside and the lady who took our order delivered the shakes to our table after a minute or two. Outside there was someone with a cat on a leash. lol

    It appears to be some sort of weird delusion where you think can look at people in line at a fast food restaurant and tell their political persuasion.

    I asked them what their political persuasion and they were more than happy to say.

    We're not uptight pricks out here in the Northwest.

    Before Steve Jobs died, he auctioned off his Reality Distortion Field in parts. I've heard some of it went to several Defense contractors, but it looks like some of it wound up at Chick-fil-A.

    Personally, I'm waiting for some of the RDF to show up in marine paint. I have a dinghy that needs tarting up.

    Sure you did. Or perhaps you are delirious from the salmonella.

    absolutely true........pricks maybe, but definitely not uptight pricks! :p

    Having had Chick-fil-A, there's no need for you to rush..........their reputation is a bit like the aura that surrounded Coors beer at one time.......the truth was it was weak watery American beer the whole time, and Chick-Fil-A is just fast food fried chicken with a good marketing department

    Food is decent. Their employees seem to always have a good attitude

    food is "decent"........only "decent"???

    LOL.....pretty weak support for "The MAGIC of Chick-Fil-A" :D

    (I'd agree....for fast food, it's "decent")

    I'd say they're about the best fast food chicken place around, unless you're jonesin' for some hot wings.

    talk about clearing a low bar!

    (On the other hand, their sweet tea was about was as good as you could find, even if their chicken was just fast food stuff)

    It would be Apple-level marketing if it convinced me, a 20+ year vegetarian to try their stuff.

    But it doesn't take a genius to peddle greasy, fast food to the American public.

    Wait...tattoos and piercings are the mark of "progressives"? Huh, who knew?

    So, you just walked up to random people in line at a chicken place and asked "Republican or Democrat? Left or right?" Sure, you did. I believe you.

    That's why I said just the places I have tried , I will say it's a tad over priced.

    I don't care for chicken salad. However, Chick-fil-A has some really good chicken salad! Their signature chicken nuggets aren't bad, but not to kill for.
    Their long lines discourage me, but if you get in one of them you will be impressed how quickly you will get served.
    I know this post is full of contradictions, all are valid though.:p

    I know tons of right wingers with tattoos and piercings. So I'm not sure how that's a clue as to someone's political persuasion.

    One of them was my buddy's daughter. We had no problem asking her friends about their views.

    Out here in the Northwest, we don't patronize people and tip-toe around controversial subjects. We're very open and conversational. And we like guns.
