    headed up by a winger though? It used to be at least. So I doubt that, if they were a sponsor, they'd pull it anyway.

    •  Domino's is definitely owned by a forced birth, (1+ / 0-)

      anti-gay winger. I'm sure they love Rush.

        is public as of 2004.  Prior to that it was primarily owned by Bain Capitol who bought it from the winger in question, Tom Monaghan who started the company in 1960 with his brother. (Forbes profile.)Current CEO is J. Patrick Doyle, and so far I don't have a lot of info on his politics, but the chairman and previous CEO, David Brandon, is now the Athletic Director of the University of Michigan.  I would think both of these guys are from the Rmoney  wing of the GOP, but I haven't seen or found any indication that they are in the Santorum camp like Monaghan and all his Ave Maria activity.

        It's not really cherry picking. Cherries are sweet and delicious. It's more like ...turd mining

          to Republican and Conservative causes.  Brandon gave money to Rick Santorum as a PA Senate candidate.  Both Doyle and Brandon are Romney contributors.
