Citizens, Santa unite: Pics show Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day success!/chrislerma/status/230711835979046912

Today is “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day” and, boy, is it ever! As Twitchy reported last week, the Left’s attempted boycott of Chick-fil-A has been a huge fail. That failure got even bigger today. Political figures joined in to express their support for free speech.

Had @ChickfilA for breakfast today but my usual order is the #1 combo with slaw and a Coke Zero. Can’t beat it.

Indeed! Now that is truth to power. With a side of waffle fries!

And freedom. The media can’t hide this; the proof is on the ground and in these inspiring photos.

Kudos, America.


Even some liberals are supporting Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.

But only because “Bible thumpers” might choke to death on their Chick-n-Strips.

Update: Keep the pictures coming, America!

Some insight from an employee on a particularly busy day at work:

Working on Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day is an experience I will never forget. I have never seen people wait so long yet leave so happy.

— Josh Wright (@joshwright17) August 2, 2012

Update: Rick Warren has spoken with Chick-fil-A president and CEO Dan Cathy, who reports that the chain has set some sort of world record today.

We didn’t think we could top Santa Claus in the celebrity sightings, but isn’t that Pat Boone?
