P.O.U. commenter, Town, breaks it down like a fraction….
You go to McDonald’s and order a cheeseburger. They give you a McWrap instead. What do you do?
You can follow the Obama Way or you can follow the Chris Matthews Way.
The Obama way is you go to the counter and say, “Hey, I ordered a cheeseburger but I got a McWrap instead. Can I have a cheeseburger?”. Calvin gives Obama a cheeseburger and tells him to keep the McWrap. Obama gets his cheeseburger and goes away.
The Chris Matthews way is to scream & shout how they gave him a MCWRAP instead of a CHEESEBURGER. The Chris Matthews way is to DEMAND to know who in the back put a McWrap in his bag instead of a cheeseburger and to pound on the counter and yell.
Then the manager comes running to offer Chris a free cheeseburger and Chris shouts NO! He DEMANDS the person who gave him a McWrap be FIRED and he wants an APOLOGY for giving him a McWrap instead of a cheeseburger. So the manager profusely apologizes, gives Chris a cheeseburger and Chris marches out the door screaming that he will NEVER EVER come to McDonalds EVER AGAIN (until he comes back the next day).
The Chris Matthews of the world want Obama to scream, shout, pound the counter, flip the straws & napkins up, toss the ketchup packets and act a fool to get the cheeseburger. The Obamas of the world know all you have to do is point out the mistake and ask for the cheeseburger in order to get the cheeseburger.
Or you can follow the Rachel Maddow Way.
The Rachel Maddow way is to repeatedly question the cashier about why she was given a McWrap instead of a cheeseburger, to say that Burger King doesn’t give you a McWrap instead of a cheeseburger, in fact Burger King’s slogan is HAVE IT YOUR WAY. She will then proceed to tell the McDonald’s manager how the restaurant should be run and jump behind the counter to demonstrate how the McDonald’s would be run if she were running it.
Obama asks for the cheeseburger and goes away. Rachel Maddow will make you listen to how she would have done it before she gets the cheeseburger.
Or you can follow the Chris Hayes Way.
The Chris Hayes way is to bring over a representative from Arby’s to tell the McDonald’s people that not only is their service bad, but they don’t serve grass fed beef to the public like Arby’s does. That giving people McWraps instead of what they ordered is tremendous food waste and should be stopped at all costs. Chris Hayes and the Arbys worker will stand at the counter snarking on the deficiencies of McDonald’s until someone points out that both Arbys and McDonald’s are fast food places. Then Chris will ask for his cheeseburger and eat it, all the while complaining that the wrapper is not made out of recycled materials.
Obama asks for the cheeseburger and goes away. Chris Hayes puts down the cheeseburger but eats it anyway.
