| It was bound to happen. A group is
calling for a boycott of all Heinz products because Sen. John Kerry is married
to the heiress of the Heinz Catsup fortune. This begs the question: will people
actually boycott a product they like because of the relationship to a political
candidate? Would politics change your eating habits?
There are Boycott Bush web sites, but President
Bush's family is not selling anything that anyone can say is directly made by
the Bush family. Can you point to a gallon of gasoline and say Bush made it?
No. You can't. The Boycott Bush web sites all call for secondary boycotts of
companies that the authors somehow feel is associated to President Bush. These
secondary boycotts against Bush would be like boycotting jelly beans because
President Reagan liked them even though he did not own any jelly bean
There is not much more we can say about it
- You decide.
