Mediaite does its best to stoke some outrageous outrage but I’m not feeling it. What’s “risky” about this? If they had the guy carrying an AR-15 or an “Obama = Hitler” sign, that would be one thing, but only in Nancy Pelosi’s tender mind does shouting indicate McVeigh-ish radicalism. If the man’s so excited about Starbucks instant blend that he needs to sing out, then damn it, sing out. Frankly, the fact that townhall protests are now so thoroughly embedded in the national consciousness that a major company feels safe to parody them in paid ads is a testament to their effectiveness.

On the other hand, this is Starbucks we’re talking about. Hmmmmm.
