  •  The Wisdom of Michael Jordan (7+ / 0-)

    When asked why he would not campaign for Harvey Gantt, MJ replied "because Republicans buy shoes, too."

    That was cold--especially considering the nature of that race--but it was sensible business.  In a country as divided as ours (remember, 47% of our brothers and sisters just went to the trouble of voting for an empty shirt for President), businesses can only lose when they take on politics.

    It's why PJ is backtracking, why Denny's is desperate to shut that whole thing down, and why I will be surprised if Komen survives.
