MSNBC, Starbucks Brew Up Obama Watching Parties
Are you a latte liberal who can't make the pilgrimage to D.C. for the Obama inauguration? Or do you think that if you did, you'd in the January chill without your mid-day brew? Well, MSNBC is looking out for you!
The Obama leg-thrill network has teamed up with Starbucks Coffee to open more than 600 java joint locations in New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco.
Not into coffee? MSNBC also has movie theaters dedicated to the ceremony, although sitting next to Chris Matthews in a dark room watching Obama sounds a little sketchy to me.
On a related note, Starbucks is far from the only corporate coffee/dessert chain to bend over backwards hailing the Obama inauguration. Apparently even Krispy Kreme, hardly a stereotypically left-wing hideout, is gushy over Obama, at least across the Pond:
All week, Krispy Kreme doughnut shops in Britain have been offering free cafe Americanos to those -- American or not -- who walk up to the counter and say Obama's trademark slogan, "Yes, we can!"
