It must be culinarily challenging to be a Democrat.

Remember when liberal activists called for boycotts of Chick-fil-A, due to the restaurant founders’ commitment to good paying jobs that don’t require Sunday work and high quality fast food?

That really made America stop and think, didn’t it? Not really. Actually, it made America mad and sales of tasty chicken sandwiches went through the roof.  And, here we are again.  This time, instead of targeting chicken entrepreneurs, the left is attacking a burger joint…  arguably, the best one on the west coast.

It all started when California Democratic Party Chairman Eric Bauman tweeted this, after finding out the Irvine-based In-N-Out Burger corporation gave $25,000 to the California Republican Party:

The post went super viral. Consequently, the Democratic party of California received lots of smaller donations.  But wait just a second…  Was that Bauman who was later talking about eating one of those juicy burgers? Yep.

“There is no boycott,” Bauman said. “I put one tweet out at 10:30 at night and it turned into a whole thing. We’ve raised so much money in small donations as a result of that one tweet and so many people have engaged with that tweet, almost a million people, so it’s amazing how it became this big boycott.”

Hum…  It’s pretty easy to imagine how this became a whole boycott thing, when he literally called for a boycott.

In other words, after the California Democratic Party took all of those donations to the bank — they now admit it was all a ploy just to get money.

At least when you give In-and-Out Burger money, they’ll hand you a burger.  When you give Democrats money, all you get is a lie.
