For once politicians are going to have to respect private property laws. While they’ve taken over the State for the primary next week, one New Hampshire restaurant has said “No politicians allowed.” CBS Boston reports,
Colby’s Breakfast & Lunch in Portsmouth is so sick of White House “wannabes” they’ve put up a sign out front that reads “No Politicians, No Exceptions.”
“We had some disturbances with politicians coming in and tying up the dining room, slowing down and spreading their agenda and just interrupting our clienteles’ breakfast and disrupting the atmosphere,” a waiter named Andrew told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.
“This has happened 5 or 6 times since the summer and we’re kinda fed up with it.”
A similar incident made news in Iowa: a sports bar crowd greeted Rick Santorum with jeers and glowers when his noisy media entourage interrupted the “Pinstripe Bowl” in which Iowa State was playing.
Fans were generally annoyed: Santorum came in second in the caucuses, and Iowa State came in second in that bowl game.
The Civil Rights Act forbids public places, including restaurants, from discrimination on the basis of “race, color, religion or national origin,” but it doesn’t say anything about politicians. Game on, guys!
