This is what four days of inane Clinton-Chipotle coverage looks like

On Monday, Hillary Clinton popped into a Chipotle in Ohio, sending reverberations through the 2016 race. What did the former secretary of state order? And what did her order mean? Did a side of hot sauce signify a fiery new attitude? Did the choice of toppings reveal hubris — "I will cream my rivals and make them sour"?

So devoid of delicious, filling details, the political press was forced to churn out stories as insubstantial and bland as unfilled tortillas. To the headlines:
