Rush Limbaugh's Iced Tea : Liberal Repellent?
Say what you will about our neighbor Rush Limbaugh's politics, his big mouth, or his criminal history -- the guy knows how to shill product.
So when he unveiled his line of iced teas last week -- called Two if By Tea and designed to capitalize on Tea Party patriotism -- he wasted no time
Rush is selling the flavored water (available in sweet tea, diet, raspberry, and diet raspberry flavors) for $23.76 per case -- 12 bottles. That's about double what Arizona Iced Tea retails for. No, you can't buy stock in the company.
His marketing materials include a take on Paul Revere's famous line, with a call that "The liberals are coming! The liberals are coming!" Perhaps drinking this elixir will keep unions, Medicare, environmental laws, and taxes at bay?
