New Hampshire Diner Says 'No Politicians, No Exceptions'

New, 5 comments

In an effort to preserve the sanctity of breakfast conversation, American hero/restaurant manager Jessica Labrie put a sign on the door of Colby's Breakfast and Lunch in Portsmouth, New Hampshire that reads "No Politicians. No Exceptions." This comes after the entire restaurant was upended by presidential wannabes like Michele Bachmann and Rick Perry.

According to Seacoast Online, the disruptive procedure involves "overbearing campaign staff members" requesting half the restaurant be reserved for their candidate, and saying things like "Don't be nervous. Just be yourself and you'll be fine." To which Labrie apparently responded, "I don't know if you really want me to be myself."

Colby's owner Jeremy Colby supports Labrie's sign, saying "I don't appreciate Joe Blow coming in here and whoring around the dining room for votes." And really, no one should have to deal with Rick Perry before coffee, anyway.
