Mitt Romney Doesn't Like Starbucks

There has been so much interesting money related stuff in the paper lately, I can't keep up with it all. But here's one from today that gets down to the nitty gritty of what some of our presidential candidates are spending money on:
Where Campaign Money Goes

Wow! Even though Obama and Edwards prefer Starbucks, their Dunkin' Donuts numbers aren't too far behind!

Mitt is a Mormon and as such does not drink coffee - so he probably likes the smoothies and donuts at Dunkin over the $5 brownies and bottled water at Starbucks.

Dunkin Donuts is based in Massachusetts too.

It's interesting how many ways there are to interpret this tiny snippet of data. There's the obvious "Chardonnay-swilling liberal elite" issue, in which the Republicans favor the unfussy chain and the Democrats go for the self-consciously upscale chain. Then there's the issue of amount--McCain spends the most by far, Romney spends the least, and the two Democrats are sandwiched between them. Then there's equanimity--both Democrats spend close to equally at both chains (one might argue that the total differential is attributable to price difference rather than number of visits), while both Republicans favor one heavily.

And now I've just thoroughly overthought this.

Romney's firm Bain Capital owns part of Dunkin' Donuts.

I'd hate to know what my spending on coffee adds up to *buries head in sand*.

Then again, you can argue that coffee makes you more productive which makes more money. Hopefully.

I deduce from this that Obama is the highest (most stimulated) and McCain is the fattest. :-)
