Ford Backs Away From AFA

Looks like Ford now realizes the American Family Association doesn't carry that much water after all.

After last week's pile-on of negative publicity, Ford has decided to start running ads for all its luxury brands in gay publications. Before they were only advertising Land Rovers and Jaguars.

This is nothing more than good business sense at work. If you're selling luxury goods, you'd be a damn fool to piss off the gay market just to placate a bunch of backwards-thinking religious bigots. Still, it's nice to see a company change course after being ratted out.

Smart move on Ford's part. The bible thumpers aren't buying the luxury cars. Too busy spending money on a double-wide and tithing to the church. No disposable income. Sell to the people with money to burn. They're not spending it on child-support, meth, or attorney's fees to defend themselves against Ronnie Earle and Travis County.
