Romney’s campaign reported the cost as “meeting expense” in its monthly federal campaign finance filing on Monday.The pit stop came days before the battle of the Chick-fil-A protests in early August, with Mike Huckabee’s national Appreciation Day on Aug. 1 and a weaker LGBT response two days later called National Same-Sex Kiss Day that included events in Atlanta and Decatur. But LGBT Atlantans and their gay-friendly supporters reacted to Chick-fil-A’s coming out of the closet with their anti-gay rhetoric with the creative flourish you’d expect. These guys kissed in the heart of Chick-fil-A country, this lesbian couple sang their disdain and these two ladies kiss started the protests. Let’s not forget the lesbian sandwich retort from East Atlanta’s Flatiron, the Two Chicks-fil-A Sunday at Urban Cannibals and the commemorative coin spoof from Laughing Skull. Kim Zolciak had a few things to say, too. Chick-fil-A has its Atlanta supporters, though. Karen Handel munches on it and tweets her approval, while John Rocker offered his two cents, too. That’s more than Mayor Kasim Reed has said. Romney and President Obama avoid addressing the controversy from the campaign stump, though even Obama’s campaign picked up $50 worth of Chick-fil-A grub during a recent swing through Atlanta.
