Capital hypocrisy.

The Soros-Think Progress-Center for American Progress-White House complex is at it again. And don’t for a second think that the Soros monkeys aren’t fully coordinating with the Obama administration.

The latest post at Think Progress trumpets a quote from an unidentified Capitol One bank spokesperson:

Capital One has recently aired advertisements on the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Today, ThinkProgress asked a representative of the company whether it is “taking steps to ensure that your ads will not run on Rush Limbaugh in the future.” Capital One responded: “Yes. We have reiterated our advertising choices to our media partners. If an ad did run, it was not authorized by us, and we do not want it to happen again.”

According to that quote, the company doesn’t know if they actually did air aids on Rush’s show and says it won’t run them in the future. So, deciding not to run ads in the future constitutes “dropping” ads they didn’t authorize in the first place and which may or may not have run. Ooookay.

More to the point, why is this company pretending to take the high road while it continues to retain serial misogynist Alec Baldwin — harasser of airline stewardesses, mocker of Filipino women, unhinged ex-husband and father — as a spokesman?

Just a reminder of the racist/sexist tweet hate he and his rabid followers unleashed just a few months ago:

And again with the nail salon jokes:

I’d accuse Capitol One of double standards, but when their standards are equal to zero, doubling it still equals…zero.
