The Limbaugh/Obama Contrast

When it comes to money, the Left loves to adopt a pose of disinterested disdain -- they are the ones who critique capitalism's (allegedly) unbridled pursuit of material gain at the supposed expense of principle, and routinely

call for redistribution of wealth.

Liberals' (including the President's) embrace of this pose is why the juxtaposition of two news stories of the day is so illuminating.

On the one hand, unabashed capitalist Rush Limbaugh has refused to reinstate Sleep Train as one of his advertisers (the company was the first profile in courage to withdraw advertising from his show in the wake of the Fluke kerfuffle, for which he has rightly expressed regret).  He did this as a matter of principle, pointing out that Sleep Train would be wasting its money because of his audience's reaction to its earlier repudiation of the show.

In contrast, the Obama SuperPac (run by Bill Burton, the president's former deputy press secretary) is refusing to return Bill Maher's $1 million, despite the "comedian"'s uglier and more extensive history of misogynist rants.  Guess the President wants that money pretty badly.

Now, it's not as if we needed another example of the left's hypocrisy -- or the hollowness of its anti-capitalist pose.

But it does show up exactly who is a person of principle -- and whose principles can be conveniently silenced in rabid pursuit of the almighty dollar for personal benefit.  For one of these men, principle is more important than money.  Good for Rush.

And let's hope that others who are misled by Media Matters' pre-packaged protesting that conservatives have pocketbooks and principles, too.  I suspect it will be a long, long time before any Rush listener springs for a Sleep Train bed.  I wouldn't buy one if you paid me.
