Rush Limbaugh has always been a big mac supporter.

Well, like I said: Rush Limbaugh has always been a big mac supporter. Also Howard Stern was a big fan of OS-2.

That said I do get pretty annoyed with the whole Liberal = Mac User vibe.

I find these ads strange in that my friend pointed out that peoples reactions to the Mac vs PC ads are directly related to how people already feel about Macs and PCs- just like political ads.

MrLint, do you know many Apple using Republicans?
Macs are big in Education and art, both of which skiew toward Democrats and further left.

I propose that you've got to be sympathetic to the Mac character to identify with the Democrat character.

So, I made a comment about the commercials being like apple ads - and my mom, a Republican, said, "Wait, what about apple?" Even though she is familiar with the apple commercials.

So, you know. You were right and stuff.

Too bad there's not a third party Linux guy in the background screaming "OH YEAH! WELL... WE'LL TAKE OVER ONE DAY!"

Come on, the War on Terror one was awesome. I liked it better than the entire How I learned to love W with the George Michael backing track. In fact, I think I'm going to go and watch it again.

If we were "voting different," wouldn't we be voting third party? I mean, 4.5 percent US market share -- that's the Greens' territory, not the Democrats'.
