By all early accounts, Gov. Mike Huckabee's "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day" seems like a wild success.
Conservatives are lining up in droves. Former Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum is offering his support and urging supporters to visit a restaurant. One Wendy's franchise owner expressed his support for Chick-fil-A at a North Carolina Wendy's.
Chick-fil-A originally incurred a backlash when COO Dan Cathy affirmed in an interview that the company did not support gay marriage.
"We are very much supportive of the family the biblical definition of the family unit," Cathy said.
Some mayors around the country including Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino have publicly supported the boycott of Chick-fil-A.
According to its Facebook event page, more than 630,000 people planned to go to Chick-fil-A today.
Many of them took to Twitter and Instagram to document the craziness. As of this writing, there were almost 60,000 Instagram photos tagged with #chickfila.

“Tomorrow, MSM will be running this headline:
Unruly mobs invade local restaurants, demand food.”
Quite right, TomGuy. Hundreds of flash mobs storming restaurants across the nation demanding non-beef food.
The horror....the horror...
But seriously, I swung by our nearest Chick-Fil-A at lunch time today and the cars were backed up into the nearby Interstate exit waiting to get to the restaurant. So I gave up on my attempt to pick up lunch there as I had too much work waiting for me back at the office. I’ll try going back in a bit to show my family’s support.
By the way, does anyone know if there are massive lines of people and cars trying to get into Chicago and Boston to show their support of those cities?
I plan to go Friday too.
People make that mistake all the time, looking to write off places where a majority are liberals.
California has about 40 million people. In the last presidential election, 40% voted Republican. Extrapolate that out to the general population and there's about 16,000,000 Republicans in California.
That's more Republicans in California than the total overall (liberal, conservative, moderate and other) populations of West Virginia, Nebraska, Idaho, Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Montana, Delaware, South Dakota, Alaska, North Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming and Washington DC combined.
I hope that the news media is not stupid enough not to give this full coverage
just for shits and giggles,
write your govenor a letter asking for a gub mint loan to start one in your state.
I think you’d do real well as the owner of a Chick Fil A
At the last minute I couldn’t get there today...it was JAMMED and I couldn’t afford the time.
SO....I am now planning on late Friday. The Gadsden will be on the car.
I will have my camera.
Go ahead...make my day.

Great sign, great post, great things to say to the moron media twits.
Bill Press eats at CFA!!!
I went to the one south of the 101 off of 27th Ave today. The place was packed. Cars coming in from 3 directions, line clear out the door into the parking lot. It was probably a 2 to 3 hour wait to get in. It’s hot and humid. People were passing out water, smiling, laughing and proud that so many came out in support. I’ve got some pictures but never have learned how to post them. ;-(
We love you!
Not to worry. I was there in Erie. Packed there as well. :-)
Can we get all 16 million to move to swing states? Please?
Keep the pictures coming, they are great! I hope to give it a try tonight in Chandler AZ.
Competitors are now Allies
more people have eaten chicken today than have bought a chevy volt, I’ll wager!
