You are doing it. As Ronald Reagan might have said, you didn't spend this day just marking time.
The American Spectator website was briefly crashed by the huge pro-Rush response. I personally am flooded with e-mails from you. I'm going to lop off last names and share a few.
Doug asks: "What would Breitbart Do? WWBD?"
JD to Carbonite:
I only want to do business with people of honor who do not allow themselves become political tools. The ONLY reason I trusted your company is because of Rush Limbaugh's promotion of your product. Apparently Rush's trust was misplaced and so was mine. I thought you were a BUSINESS! I want to cancel my subscription to Carbonite effective immediately. I believe I am paid ahead by a couple of years and am requesting a refund of the remaining balance on my account. However, if you are as dishonorable as I now suspect, keep your money. I will find another online back up service.Michael to Legal Zoom:
My sincere hope is that you finally realize that the silent majority is a majority nonetheless.
I immediately shot (oops ... is that allowed?) off an email to "Legal-Zoom" about my decision to NOT order the subject of this email after the gutless wonders of that company showed revealed themselves for the phonies they are.BD to Quicken Loans:
Being in the communications and PR business, I know doublespeak when I read it. And, yes, you have taken sides -- pure and simple. You caved. You can dress a gorilla in a party frock and call it Shirley but it is still a gorilla. No, you did not do the right thing. You think by taking sides in this fabricated matter you will get more business… Thank you for letting me know you do not welcome or want my business. Understood. And as I wrote I will never use your services professionally or personally. Nor will countless others.…Lila to me re: Carbonite:
Guess what? I have a 3-year subscription ($139.00) with Carbonite, which began last September. I just got off the phone with a rep who told me that the subscription is NON-REFUNDABLE.(Note from me to Lila on Lila's last line: You did -- here it is.)
I demanded that the call be escalated to a supervisor, but, as you can imagine, one was not available to take the call. I would have to be called back later.
The rep said that the non-refundable policy was in the fine print I agreed to. Since when is a subscription NON-Refundable? I asked for the unused portion of my subscription to be refunded and I was told it would not be.
I then told the rep that if my money was not refunded, I would go to the media, both local and national.
Name Withheld by Request to Pro-Flowers:
I am a long-time customer, but just unsubscribed from your promotional emails. Are we getting the flavor here? My mailbox is stuffed with these from great people all over the country…it will take days to answer them all. I will do my best.
I am not a Rush Limbaugh listener, but I am a believer in freedom of speech.
Because you dropped your ads from Rush Limbaugh's show -- apparently at the behest of an organized cadre of the radical left -- I plan the following:
I will never order from you again.
I will discontinue my formerly frequent referrals of you to friends.
I will go out of my way to "unrefer" you in favor of less politically correct competitors.
So one last thing to the Rush Ralliers.
I kept hearing a line today I had not heard. Then I was told the line is actually from a new T-shirt. Here's the image of the shirt -- and the story from The Washington Times.
It seems that an outfit named Anthem Studios has produced a black T-shirt with a black-and-white picture of the late Andrew Breitbart. Beneath his picture it bears the legend: "Breitbart is here."
Says Anthem of the $20 shirt designed by "Big Fur Hat of I Own the World":
All proceeds will go to benefit the family of Andrew Breitbart. Keep Andrew's spirit alive and help support his family by purchasing a "Breitbart is here" t shirt!Andrew Breitbart left behind a wife and four young children. You have the link above. Do your thing as you see fit.
But if there is one thing America has learned in this effort to get Rush Limbaugh -- there are now thousands of Andrew Breitbarts out there.
Surely Mr. Breitbart would smile at the notion that in death he is becoming the long sought conservative answer to all those lefties wearing another bearded image -- that of Fidel Castro's Communist revolutionary lieutenant Che Guevara.
Andrew Breitbart as the conservative answer to Che. Ya gotta love it.
The Rally for Rush proceeds.
Breitbart is here.
