Balko nails the Whole Foods boycotters

..in 13 points. My fave:

9) John Mackey opposes single payer health care, preferring to keep health insurance private and competitive. Lefties are angry with his decision to write an op-ed in support of this position, so they’re going to take their business to other grocers whose politics are more in line with their own.

Huh.  Just curious, if we get single payer, and the government does something you don’t like, where are you going to take your business?

I think the cool kids call this irony.

Actually, I think the idea of a Whole Foods boycott was first broached by the scriptwriters for The Goode Family, but it was rejected as being too over-the-top.
