why I think Amazon has a future

So I'm watching Hardball, and Matthews is talking about Red State (a conservative blog) pushing their readers to send bags of rock salt to Senator Snowe. What did the readers do? They went to Amazon, where apparently Ron's Home and Hardware of Indiana, Maine (I assume there is a town called Indiana in Maine) received orders for 1200 pounds of rock salt to send to the Senator's Maine office.

Conservatives who are engaged in political protest through online shopping at Amazon. Wonders, truly, will never cease.

ETA: I actually think it was kind of a nice protest. The recipient, living in Maine, could probably use the rock salt during the winter months. If her office has more than they care to store until need, they can donate it to the town. Very considerate, really.
