A word about sincerity.

In light of Chik-Fil-A CEO Dan Cathy’s statements and the immediate cavalcade of reactions to them, many politicians looking to get elected are taking Bold Stances on this Important Issue.

Politicians like Conservative State Assembly candidate Russel Gallo, who, in a letter to Dan Cathy published by The Daily News, extends an open invitation for the fast food chain to open a location in South Brooklyn.

Despite the addressee, Gallo’s letter reads like it was written for newspapers, and not Dan Cathy and his associates. In it, he specifically calls out political opponents like City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who had previously voiced the exact opposite sentiment regarding Cathy’s particular style of chicken on buns.

It’s pretty blatant political posturing on a topic that’s full of it already. We don’t need a Chik-Fil-A. If Gallo really wants to help the people of Brooklyn and New York, he should focus on working to get an entirely different fast food chain with sinister conservative ties.

That’s right, Russell Gallo. If you want our vote, bring us an In-N-Out. Show us what you’re made of.
