The Sleeping Giant Awakens and Stands on Line for Chick-fil-A
Rahm Emanuel and Thomas Menino, mayors of Chicago and Boston, made this political. And now the people of this country, I’m gonna tell you, you’re looking at a microcosm of what’s gonna happen on November 6th. You’re looking at a microcosm of the Tea Party. You are seeing that great silent majority, or the sleeping giant that our first caller talked about. We have these commercials we do for FreedomWorks, people want to do more than vote. They want to get involved. They want to let everybody know how they feel and in what numbers they exist, and this is the latest opportunity they’ve got, and they are utilizing it. Literally e-mails out the wazoo today talking about quarter mile long lines. My cousin Andy in St. Louis sent me a picture of a Chick-fil-A in Des Peres, outside St. Louis, of jammed parking lots, traffic jams, people waiting. Other stories about Chick-fil-A someplace ran out of breakfast at nine o’clock and immediately started serving lunch.
Now, meanwhile, in Chicago you got the mayor there, Rahm Emanuel, talking about, “Well, they don’t represent Chicago values.” And a guy in Boston essentially saying the same thing. And Ted Cruz, who was supposedly down by 13 points, coming back and winning huge. Tea Party candidate, in Texas last night, sending a message of generational change to the Republican establishment. Big Tea Party candidate. Sarah Palin endorsed. There is an explosion waiting to happen in this country. People are fed up, and this is a sign.
