Lifelock sticks with Rush. Fluke demands insurance for “gender reassignments.”

If one were to run around checking the FEC every time one had a business relationship, one would quickly be out of business. Hey! This is America! Do business (legally!) with whomever you chose.
Mr. Friend’s mistake was his sanctimonious phoniness. Ohhhhhhhhhhh he had to stop sponsoring Rush because of an insult to his daughters. Oh woe is the lack of civil discourse.
It was BS. All of it. From start to finish. As demonstrated.
By sticking with Rush Limbaugh so far — and surely the leftward pressure continues — Mr. Davis seems to be in perfect sync with his political beliefs. And the issue is not that he supports Republicans Flake and Giuliani. The issue is that he — and Lifelock — seem to be demonstrating principle in action. And thus far, that ability to stick to principle has fortuitously landed his product in the spotlight as a Lifelock on your First Amendment rights.
In fairness, just as we yesterday published the contact information for those who led the assault on free speech, here is the information for a chief executive and a company who seem not to have hesitated in standing up for your right to free speech. To put a Lifelock on your free speech.

If any of this changes, we’ll let you know.
Before we leave Lifelock, let’s focus on a one interesting aspect of Rush’s apology to Sandra Fluke yesterday.
Rush admitted something that is critical to understanding both Rush — and conservatism in general. To wit: he said his mistake came in becoming just like the Left. For one brief moment he got into the gutter with these people. And to those who listen to Rush three hours a day and five days a week — and have now for over two decades — it was as if Rush had hit an off-key note in his daily verbal concert of conservatism. Rush Limbaugh doesn’t talk that way — as his fans well know. Indeed, just as his fans know their own families and close friends, the intimacy of radio has made of Rush what one of you described to me in an e-mail as a “national treasure.”
Rush is often compared in this space to the late William F. Buckley, Jr. in the sense that he has emerged as America’s premiere conservative spokesman. But if you move away from politics per se and look back in American history, as the years go on Rush Limbaugh seems to bear increasing resemblance to two men seen in their day as national treasures — Mark Twain and Will Rogers. The man whose wisdom is hard earned, whose principles are rock solid — and whose sense of humor can always be relied on to make your day.
The American Left of today not only doesn’t have someone like this — they are, as is seen daily, completely incapable of producing such a figure. As Bill Maher demonstrates, calling Sarah Palin a “c…t” doesn’t quite make one a “national treasure.” Rush Limbaugh — and not to put too fine a point on it, conservatives in general — are so far above and beyond this kind of thing that when Rush makes a mistake as he did the other day it jars the ears. It was Rush as MoveOn.org or an Occupy Wall Streeter, a Media Matters obsessive or just another left-wing blogger in pajamas. Rush, to his vast credit (and in truth, I thought he was a tad to hard on himself yesterday. Ed Schultz he is not — thank God!) got the deal, rose from his stumble to the left-wing gutter, has now brushed himself off, apologized — and most importantly — gone on. Up, out, and back on the main conservative highway.
Now — the transgendered issue. Curious, yes?
No, this is not about arguably America’s most famous transgendered celebrity — Chaz Bono. Sonny and Cher’s little girl Chastity who grew up to become today’s transgender man Chaz Bono, a dancer with the stars.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
