Rick Perry IS good for business! Credo Mobile, the ‘only’ progressive phone company in USA uses him to sell its phones AND bash AT&T

My emailbox is always full of interesting stuff.

Today I got a marketing piece from CREDO Mobile, America’s only progressive phone company.

The subject line of the email was “Why did AT&T give Rick Perry $462,739?” (since 2000).

That is a very good question. That is certainly a few dollars more than Merck gave to him directly — although indirectly it gave hundreds of thousands to the Republican Governors Association which in turn supported Perry with hundreds of thousands of dollars …

Anyway, if you are looking for phones that are no cheaper with plans that are no cheaper than anywhere else BUT you want to support progressive politics that are just as bad as other winger politics then perhaps you should consider CREDO Mobile.

Below is the introduction from the email marketing piece that I got today. CREDO Mobile certainly is putting Rick Perry to work creating business for their product line and services.

Tidbits – AT&T buys T-Mobile USA – Will competition remain in GSM marketplace?

AT&T Inc. agreed to buy T-Mobile USA from Deutsche Telekom AG for $39 billion in cash and stock, in a deal that would create the biggest U.S. wireless carrier by subscribers and fundamentally alter the industry’s competitive landscape. Under the deal, the companies said AT&T will pay $25 billion in cash and the balance in stock, giving T-Mobile’s German parent an 8% stake in AT&T.

B4DC: AT&T bought out Cingular and now T-Mobile. That leaves just one provider of GSM telecom services in the USA. Will competition remain in GSM marketplace?
