    A really good read;


    The American Spectator : Rally for Rush

    "A lot of folks have been asking why Carbonite would choose to pull its ads from Rush Limbaugh’s show for referring to activist Sandra Fluke as a “slut” but they still advertise on Ed Schultz’s show after he referred to Laura Ingraham the same way."

    "So when you cross check Mr. David Friend of Orchid Partners in Boston with the Federal Election Commission, one finds -- ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh shocker!……… that a Mr. David Friend of Orchid Partners in Boston has been a contributor to… ready? Here's the list of just where David Friend spends his political money:

    MoveOn.org, America Coming Together and Democracy for America, all three listed here as George Soros funded groups, the latter set up by Howard Dean."

    Carbonite is a for profit business. If they feel that its in their best interest (financially) to dump rush who am I to object.

    Think about it. Rush's regular listeners are already committed to their service. Now, by pulling out, Carbonite has expanded its publicity 10 fold because of the story. It all profit driven and none of my business.

    A lot of uber rich contribute to the far left... it's their way of trying to ensure that when the peasants come a calling, they won't point their pitchforks toward them.
