The Whole Foods Boycott

I, for one, plan on immediately shopping again at Whole Foods, assuming, of course, that they've cut all corporate ties with John Mackey.

As one of the first bloggers (if not the first) both to object to Whole Foods' CEO John Mackey's insane op-ed opposing healthcare reform and to suggest a boycott of Whole Foods, let me be among the first to agree with Michael Pollan that the chain should not be boycotted. I, for one, plan on immediately shopping again at Whole Foods, assuming, of course, that they've cut all corporate ties with John Mackey.

Until then, Whole Foods is more than welcome to make their money catering to all the hordes of Mackey's fellow conservatives who just love to shop there. People, for example, like this brilliant mind. She makes such a tremendously convincing case that elitist liberal scum (like Michael Pollan) want her to pay more for her food thereby depriving her of the scratch to purchase common salt-of-the earth American goods like Ikea; or that wholesome, inexpensive treat sold at all NASCAR rallies: Haagen Daz ice cream; or that third set of overpriced designer sneakers.

And oh! How she'll love the prices at Whole Foods!
