Is Hooters Republican? Are liberals stupid?

At liberal blog Daily Kos, kos thinks because Hooters and its employees donate more money to Republicans than Democrats (see the chart), this somehow implies Republicans are hypocrites on "family values."

Over a hundred people left comments, nearly all of them supporting the idea that kos found new amazing proof that Republicans suck and are mostly "white trash."

If any of them had bothered to actually look at the chart, they'd see that nearly all restaurants overwhelmingly support Republicans over Democrats. I am sure this has a lot more to do with Republicans supporting a regulatory environment friendly to the restaurant business than with "family values."

Excellent point.

It could also mean Republicans are just more fun than those "angry at the world" lefties.

You both make good points. Liberals are insane.

Jimmy Carter was sooooo proud of eliminating the three martini lunch, but lots of restaurants closed and lots of servers lost income. A business lunch was not a frivolity - in return for the undivided attention of a client, the seller paid for the lunch. The client, in return for listening to a pitch and a bunch of old jokes got a meal and, with luck, a martini or so. Restaurants got a steady clientele stream.
I figured, once, that I, self-employed, would have to have 30 martini lunches to compensate for the untaxed benefits of the employed person.

Now, now. You expect Kos readers to have gained some form of rational capability. Such naivity comes in the early blogging stages.

You're overlooking another possibility i.e. that liberals can usually get real girls of their own and that conservative Republicans need to go to a bar to look at them.

Just a theory, of course. :-)

The points are all good ones, especially regarding the restaurant industry. However, I'm a Kossack myself, and I gotta say that this reminds me of Bob Dole excoriating Hollywood for making violent movies while he accepted campaign donations from Sly Stallone and Bruce Willis, both stars of--ta daaaaaa!!!--violent Hollywood movies. It's more a case of "do as I say, not as I do."

Too funny Jazz. Old Lefties like me usually go up to the local Audubon Society to pick up those "earthy" chicks.

It might have to do with the "perception" that Republicans are restaurant/small business friendly. Whether they actually are is another matter altogether.
