Carbonite abandons Rush, investors abandon Carbonite
Hahaha....the free market at work ladies and gentlemen. Despite Rush's apology to democrat plant Sandra Fluke for calling her a slut and prostitute for wanting her birth control covered by Georgetown's insurance carrier, a long-time sponsor of Rush's show, Carbonite, pulled it's support from the show. Within 24 hours, investors in Carbonite pulled their support of it and the stock dove 12% and continues to fall today. Heh heh.
Among the reasons for investors abandoning Carbonite is the failure of Obama and the media to get the vapors when MS-NBC turd-breath Ed Shultz called Laura Ingraham a "right wing slut". Obama didn't call Laura the way he did Ms. Fluke, to see if she was OK and no sponsors of MS-NBC announced they were withdrawing their association.
Carbonite CEO David Friend said that he hopes this would contribute to a more civilized public discourse, but where was his concern when Ed Shultz said what he did?
I love when the free market punishes somebody for being reactive and stupid.....heh heh.
Bonus: what does this picture have to do with the post?
