The answer to the Twitter war is sunshine

Posted by  ▪  March 19, 2012

Rush move to Twitter has boycott organizers worried

Posted by  ▪  March 18, 2012
The advertiser boycott of Rush Limbaugh appears to be cracking, and Rush’s move to Twitter has boycott organizers worried. Behind the scenes, anecdotal evidence suggests that advertising either never really was impacted at the local level, or to the extent it was it has returned to normal.  Via Macsmind: Today listening to the Rush Limbaugh…

Another piece of the untold story of Obamacare

Posted by  ▪  March 17, 2012
So many things had to go wrong for Obamacare to evade a Senate filibuster.  Arlen Specter had to switch parties.  Al Franken had to pull out a slight victory.  And Senator Ted Stevens needed to lose relection just after being convicted of corruption. If any one of those had not happened, we…
