Being elected to a public office is about representing the people, not about representing business's.

freedom to tell moveon to go fly a kite? It's ok if companies support the Democrats but not if they support pro-business candidates? Anything wrong with this picture?

Target has the absolute right to support whichever candidates they chose to, based on what's best for their business. To back down and actually 'apologize' to a small minority of whining liberal anti-free speech fascists is deplorable. Target, you have made a HUGE mistake. Now I'M going to boycott you because you no longer believe in free speech and doing what is best for your business and stock holders. You see, there are consequences no matter what you do, so you may as well have stuck with your original decision.

You know, the right does have the right to protest MoveOn.org in the same manner. Instead of calling people that protest against right wing political interests, why don't you form a protest of your own? It is after all your constitutional right to do so. Conservatives seem to forget that it goes both ways. You can have your Tea parties and protest everything under the sun, but when the left does it, it's hypocrisy, a socialist takeover and un-American in the rights eyes. Who's the real pot, kettle, black hypocrites?

I had been not buying at Target because of the number of jobs they have off shored. Now the GLBT section of workers they employ being such a pain in the ass, now has brought me back. Target has gone out of their way to support the GLBT's and this is the way they are paid back?
