    Sorry, Pepsi. Your new bottle still has that modified Obama logo on it. Trendy political bandwagon-jumping lost you my family’s business. =’[.]‘=

        The problem with you left wingers is your consistent modus operendi. The man writes one sentence, based not only on the appearance of the symbol, but based upon the timing of it’s release and Pepsi’s support for Obama, and you issue an edict that makes pop psychology look like cold tar running down a hill backwards.

        If I were you, I’d change my name—or are genius’s now determined the same way Dayton hires its policemen?
