We Are Boycotting Target ?!!

I clicked on the our Money = Their Power.
(That big red ad to your left.).  What a discovery!
They provide a great service by showing us which companies
are blue and which are red.

You're just a click away from  boycotting the
stinking Republicans out of business!

My first stop: News Corp.  (Fox News et al)
Hey, it looks like Fox News IS fair an balanced!
According to the cobb site, they actually favor dems!

 Woah!  And here I was all set to go in for the kill.  
Hannity,- A double salute to you sir!  O'Reilly, you're
the MAN!
Hats off to our friends at Fox News!

Next stop:  Target.  Unlike Walmart, they have a great reputation
as an employer. . .
Uh Oh.  .  .
A little bitty blue the size of a cigarette filter, and red the
stretching out as long as a Virginia Slim.

But aren't the Wingnuts boycotting Target?  
That's the storethat wouldn't let the Salvation Army on the premises because
of their intolerance to gays.
Oh well.  Guess us and the wingers can all join hands and put
the Target bastards out of business!
(Thank god for those Cobb people!)

I'm a Mac guy.  Or at least WAS till I checked on this Cobb site.

Looks like that old hippy Steve Jobs dived in a vat of red paint.
And Al Gore on the board of Apple too.  MacRumors reported
that Jobs and his wife gave Howard Dean a nice donation
when he was a candidate.
Thanks to Cobb24.Com I can say  Good riddance Apple.

The movement is getting national attention, too.  I hear
CNN did a story on BuyBlue last week and so all of America can
can boycott right along with us savvy bloggers.

Show your appreciation folks.  Like the Cob24.com site says:
DONATE.  Tell your friends!  Let's keep this fine service
doing it's thing.

uh . . .
It's a nice thought, and I know it makes people feel better to think their money is going to "our side," but News Corp is a perfect example of why this isn't the best way to judge. I assume they donate to both sides not only to hedge their bets, but to be able to deny their bias.

On the other hand, couldn't the fact that a vertain major wine company is "Blue" have something to do with the degree to which it greases its local (Blue state) officials?

If this were to start making an actual dent on profits, the company in question would just start contributing more to Dem candidates . . . can you guess which Dem candidates a "Red" company would be most likely to donate to? Do we want to encourage that?

We don't need a chart to tell us who Fox supports. The same is true of any other company, with the appropriate research. It is an interesting list to think about, though.

Re: uh . . .
I'm pretty sure that the diary was intended to expose the dangers of a chart that supposedly shows you who to boycott and who to support.  He seemed to imply that the site seemed a bit trollish.

But don't worry, I've missinterpreted satire too.
