Poor, poor Rush. First the flap over possibly racist remarks that resulted in his resigning from ESPN. Then it turns out he’s been investigated for involvement in a drug ring from which he may have been purchasing oxycontin in massive quantities.
Now I learn that Rush is a huge Mac fan. And he’s been begging Apple to let him do a Switch ad for them. And that Apple hasn’t gone for it, presumably because Jobs’ and Limbaugh’s politics don’t mesh. Quel surprise. Now he’s telling listeners that Apple’s marketshare is stagnant despite their superior products because Jobs is too obstinate to let Limbaugh buoy their sales with his fame.
The episode did make me wonder: Why is it surprising to learn that Limbaugh is a Mac fan? I guess it’s because most Mac users are pretty liberal. I had never really thought about it, but there seems to be a distinct leftist political leaning that accompanies Mac use, and I’m not sure what to make of that. Theories?
