No go, Citgo

Yesterday on Rush Limbaugh one of the callers suggested that he call for a boycott of Citgo (which is 100% owned by the state-owned Venezuelan oil company PDVSA) in response to Hugo Chavez' antics at the UN and in Harlem, but Rush declined. He said that talk show hosts used to call for such things as a demonstration of their power, but he felt that the conservative grassroots were perfectly capable of organizing such things on their own. (He didn't quite say "Old and burnt - new hotness", but it was pretty evident that's how he felt about it.)

Well, lo and behold, the Northern Alliance steps up to the plate. I won't have much trouble going along with this, since my loyalty to SA is bought and paid for (HHO1/2K), but as Mitch Berg says, it'll help nudge me to go elsewhere when the tank gets low and there's a Citgo nearby. Besides, it'll help offset all the Common Dreams types who think helping subsidize the populist, proto-Communist corruption of Chavez' Bolivarismo is a good idea.
