    This is funny. Every single company has a big fat lobbyist associated with it. maybe it is a GOOD thing that his sponsors are leaving his program.

    It's bad marketing to associate your product with a very polarizing opinion, no matter what it may be. Advertisers don't want to alienate anyone. If you listen to Fox News on XM radio you'll find that all the ads are targeted specifically at older business owners, usually male. Commercials tend be for gold, small business loans, IRS issues, prostate cancer and macular degeneration. I'd be very surprised if I ever heard a commercial on there for the new album by Ke$ha, you know?

    Because they don't want to be hassled by John Podesta, Van Jones, Jim Wallis, or anyone of the numerous George Soros organizations.

    Probably because he changes his stance on issues more than you change your underwear.
