This reminds me of the Chik Filet (sp?) drama. When one of the bigwigs over there made some comment about homosexuals, everyone on the left went nuts. I recall reading a lot of comments about how the chicken there is awful, etc. And then of course the right overreacted in kind. I remember that the business for Chik Filet around here actually increased for quite some time as righties showed solidarity.
Now we have the mirror image. The righties are all upset by some head honchos comment. The lefties are reacting. Bet sales of Girl Scout Cookies go up.
I’m figuring somebody in the Girl Scout’s marketing department dreamed all this up. Now we’ll start seeing companies ‘market by outrage’. The CEO of Pepsi will make a rude comment about the NRA. Or maybe Tony the Tiger will come out against lesbians. Whatever. if you let the media make your spending and political decisions for you, you deserve what you get.
