Not the Real Thing: Pepsi President Flips Out

As a present day Atlantan and as an American I’m more than happy to link to Hugh Hewitt’s post on Pepsico President Indra Nooyi's "America is the middle finger" speech at Columbia University graduation. How injudicious, unpatriotic, and amazingly juvenile for a commencement speech. It’s worth a look.

Setting aside whether you agree with her point (I don't but some obviously do), still, it's difficult to understand her huge lapse in judgment here. The President of PepsiCo is the President of PepsiCo each and every day of her life. Whenever you step foot outside of your house, that's who you are. She seems to have lost sight of that, and lost sight of what her biggest market is. That's actually pretty amazing for a business leader. She likely will not keep her job, I would think.

Don't buy Product, buy 1 share of stock. That will give us all the right to personally attend the shareholders meetings. Now where do I get a hold of one of those pie throwing students?

Why are folks avoiding the small unpleasantries that the Red Cross is the organization that reported the issue to the American Military Command in Gitmo? Similarly that the reporting outside of the United States was from released detainees?

Could the real crisis here be that americans just wish that blaming the 'liberal media' would make things better?

An interesting approach in the middle of the release of the military investigation in the murder by american interogators of detainees in Bagram.

Maybe americans want to decide which side they are one?
