Fair warning: If you haven’t had your coffee yet, do not watch this clip. It will ruin your day.
Hillary Clinton’s contrived and ostensibly incognito van trip from New York to Iowa made an impromptu stop at an Ohio Chipotle on Monday, and the punditry community has been forced to dissect this event with an analyst’s eye. Mary Katharine already took this episode apart, and her set of theories about what it all means for Clinton’s 2016 run are thoughtful and compelling. But one possibility she didn’t consider is that which Bloomberg analyst Mark Halperin entertained on the set of Morning Joe on Tuesday: Clinton is going for “new” and “fun.” And what could be more “new” and “fun” for Hillary Clinton than a soul-sucking trip to a fast food chain with the mission of forcing hideously fatty treats down your throat just to keep you alive for a few more hours?
