    But what did she order? Did she order good ol american steak or some feminazi vegetarian thing or lots of PORK because she is all about being a washington insider.Report

    I want to be sure I preface what I’m about to say with the acknowledgment that these things should not be important to anyone wondering who would be the leader of the free world.

    Having said that…

    Since it so clearly *is* important to so many people, if you are running for president probably best that you actually leave money in the tip jar, don’t shush women on camera, refrain from casually using the word “psychopath” to describe popular political figures, have people proofread you website, etc.Report

      On one hand i certainly agree. On the other hand i can see this leading to intrepid squads of journo’s tracking and investigation all the candidates tips and fast food orders. It would be irresponsible not to inquire how all the wanna be prez’s spread around the wealth. And on the other hand i wish we had a Chipolte here.Report

        Don’t. It’s a delicious one-track path to adding three inches to your waistline.Report

          Chipotle “delicious”? What is it with you people and over-appreciation of mediocre one-step-above-fast food?

          Though I must admit that I took JB’s advice about trying the spicy chicken at Chik-Fil-A and it was not bad.Report

            I kept hearing about how awesome Chipotle was. After coming to Texas, I finally go to try it. It did not live up to the hype.

            I prefer Moe’s any day.Report

            I get why someone in Alaska would want a Chipotle. But why the heck are there any in California? Around here, it’s basically a place where you overpay for your burritos so you can avoid having your Mexican food prepared by actual Mexicans.Report

        Oh, my goodness, how dreary this will be. After this, some waiter at a restaurant in Iowa will be all “Candidate Charlie left an insultingly low tip!” and then after that another patron at a diner in New Hampshire will be all “Incumbent Ingrid left a bizarrely huge tip, as if she were trying to buy the waiter’s vote!” and then after that Incumbent Ingrid will send out a volunteer minion to follow Candidate Charlie around South Carolina and capture Candidate Charlie being cheap on his tips on video and so by the time they get to Nevada Candidate Charlie will send out his minions to get the burritos instead and Incumbent Ingrid’s minions will have to follow Candidate Charlie’s minions and soon enough no one in Florida will be able to get a burrito at all without running a gauntlet of camcorders, tablet-cams, and phone-cams wielded by dozens of campaign flacks, political paparazzi, and reporters videotaping every move everyone makes at the assembly counter.Report

          Geez i was just being snarky….its not like we’ll get the insane point where press and pundit types are commenting on something as trivial as the condiment choice of a politician………oh wait……crap.Report

          All of this is further proof for my theory that HBO’s Veep is terrifyingly closer to documentary than fiction.Report

        Meh chipolte isnt that great. Anyplace that charges for their chips cant be. I think moe’s is better.Report

        • Avatar Chris says:

          Someone mark down the time and date, please. Notme and I agree on something!

          Chipotle is nearly tasteless nonsense. I invite you all to Austin, where I will not simply get you a burrito, I will get you a burrito the size of your head.Report

    Don’t see it as a burritoghazi. See it as her publicly caring about the lower classes but, when the rubber meets the road, her not giving a crap about them.

    This is the Democratic Larry Craig.Report

    Dammnit ! I’m trying to go on a diet here. (lost 6.5 kg so far this year) Stop tempting me!Report

    There’s Madonna in the spots on that burrito.

    It’s a devine revelation; the Holy Mother of God manifested on Hilary’s burrito.

    She’s been blessed.

    Now, if we could just get a shot of her morning toast. . .Report

    Semi related. There was a segment on NPR about HRC’s van trip to Iowa wherein she went to some place to order food/drink and got a chai tea.

    Really? This is the level of coverage? WTF cares? And if YOU do care, tell me why the hell you care about this? God what a waste of airtime. This crap seeps in even when I’m actively trying to avoid the early months of presidential races. What’s next? The type of hot sauce Marco Rubio puts on his breakfast eggs?Report

    • Avatar Mike Schilling says:

      I remember this from 2008 about what kind of bottled iced tea Obama likes. Which the GOP later spun as “What an elitist! Real Americans drink Snapple.”Report

      Nothing new; remember how big a deal it was when John Kerry went to Philadelphia and complained about how he couldn’t get Swiss on his cheesesteak?Report

    She’s only going make 85% of what a male President makes, so she has to start cutting costs somewhere.Report
