Bernie Marcus, founder of Home Depot and contributor of more than $1 million to George W. Bush's 2004 Inaugural celebration, of US retailers who do not support the GOP and oppose President-Elect Obama and all Democrats, said, "If a retailer has not gotten involved with this, if he has not spent money on this election, if he has not sent money to Norm Coleman [Republican US senator from Minnesota in his race against Al Franken] and these other guys, he should be shot, should be thrown out of their goddamn job."


What isn't exactly clear is whether Mr. Marcus' was confused about which he recommends be the first punitive measures against apostate retailers: wouldn't it make more sense to first throw the folks out of their "goddamn job", before you shoot them? At least then the PA call, "Cleanup on Isle 9," could be avoided entirely.
