Jon Stewart’s rally raises questions about comedian’s role (Coca-Cola sponsors HuffPo buses)
Yahoo News ^ | 10/29/10 | Michael Calderone

Jon Stewart and Glenn Beck have a few things in common. The liberal and conservative cable hosts each described their respective rallies on the National Mall—whether to "restore honor" or "restore sanity"—as nonpolitical events. Neither walks in lockstep with Democrats or Republicans. And both often claim to simply be entertainers, while at the same time never shying away from weighty subjects like the economy and terrorism.

Now the Huffington Post has lined up 212 buses leaving from the Mets Citi Field at 6 a.m. Saturday. (The buses will be equipped with snacks and drinks donated by Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola.)

Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola.

All of which will be taxed or banned by food police in the next two years if Republicans don't take back the House.

“Pom Wonderful, Stonyfield Yogurt and Coca-Cola”

I have no idea what Pom Wonderful is, but I’ll have no more Stonyfield yogurt nor Coca-Cola.

WTFcNow their last rally was a flop and so they try again for another flop. LOL

So now the huff post gets with massive corporations and then the next day they will say these same companies are in bed with the GOP.
Hey FOX how about covering this and reporting this crap .

Also what is with the left and their endless supply of freebies, free food, free drinks, free travel, free shirts, free signs?
Can’t these people actually figure out what to say, how to get there etc?
NO COURSE THEY CAN’T

*** Did they do the same for the Beck rally? ***

Surely you jest. But, here’s a chance to dish back some of the left’s tactics - boycott these businesses and their products. I don’t mean organized boycotts, just personal preferences. Tell your friends.

I’ve been using my money as a way of protesting for many years. I wish more conservatives would do the same.

I’m switching to Pepsi...screw Jon Stewart...the only reason we bother with yuck-yuck funnyman is because he draws a million or two idiots and he’s on a crusade against Beck. I heard government employees are also going to stage a “Government Doesn’t Suck” rally..

Hate to inform the pepsi drinkers in here but they are a huge advocate of the homosexual agenda. Lefties are in all the major companies.

Everything is great in liberal land. :)

You little people need to stop whining and pay your fair share of taxes.

Press 1 for English. Then press 1 for some contest they have going on, 2 for everything else.
