File it under Larry Wilmore.

Hard on the heels of the latest article in Tiger Beat on the Potomac about how racist, bigoted, misogynous and both physically and morally unattractive Republicans can’t get laid in D.C. comes the story of how unfair it is that Sarah Huckabee got tossed from a Red Hen franchise because the staff and owner found her reprehensible.

Let me say two words- Masterpiece Cakeshop.

You remember it, it was the decision this month that allowed a baker in Colorado to refuse to make a wedding cake for a same sex couple.

Now I happen to think that was correctly decided provided the vendor was not systemically discriminating against a protected class of people. I can deny you my services for any reason or no reason at all until I enter a contract to provide them.

The example I use is well done steaks. “Mr. Trump, you are welcome to any other item on our menu free of charge but my Chef will not prepare them that way nor will I serve them. If that offer is not sufficient I invite you to patronize another establishment.”

Now sauce, in this case ketchup, for the goose is sauce for the gander. To applaud Masterpiece Cakeshop and deny its logical application to Red Hen is rank hypocrisy.

Which is no stranger to the D.C. twittering class who bemoan our “loss of civility and respect.”

To them I say- “Y’All stop being racist and I’ll stop talking about it.”
