It was Comedy Central at Our Favorite Starbucks yesterday at our very own Mr. Mayor personally apologized to each and every person waiting to order their coffee. The scene went something like this: Barista Nada wished the Mayor a belated Happy Thanksgiving. The Mayor -- always looking out for his constituents -- told Nada to clam-up. "Less small talk, more coffee," he joked. He then went from person to person apologizing for any delay. "It's all Nada," he continued, "She's causing the back-up." Everyone laughed, but I couldn't help wondering if this is how good politicians get elected: Pass the (Star)bucks and appeal to the base. At least it wasn't a Tea Party ...!
