(Life News) — More companies have joined Papa Johns, Huggies and Vanguard in dropping ads from the liberal, pro-abortion blog Wonkette after it ran a crass post mocking Sarah Palin and her son Trig, who has Down Syndrome. . . .
The post prompted a conservative backlash on Twitter, with hundreds of people writing to companies that had engaged in advertising on the popular blog site. In addition to the three that quickly dropped their ads, several others have followed suit. Below are the companies and the tweets they sent out announcing their ads will no longer appear on Wonkette. In some cases, it appears the companies contracted with a third-party advertising agency that placed their Internet ads on the blog, along with other websites.
JJIll: “All: Please know we do not condone the Wonkette story. Thank you for bringing it to our attention. We have taken action to remove our ads.”
Holland America Cruises: “Thanks for letting us known, we have blocked that page from running our ads.”
Nordstrom: “Thanks for letting us know. The ads have been removed. We’re sorry to disappoint you.”
Reliant Energy: “Thank you for alerting us. We did not choose this site and are working to have this removed immediately.”
Bob Evans: “Our ad is not supposed to be running on that site. Agency has been alerted to pull it immediately.”
Coldwell Banker: “We are in the process of pulling our ads from Wonkette.”
DealSwarm: “We’ve pulled our ads from the site — we wouldn’t have approved them running next to that blog post. (Trig is a cutie pie.) Thank you for alerting us — we weren’t aware our ads were running alongside a blog post like that. Ads have been pulled.”
MetroPCS: “We don’t condone @Wonkette, have removed the ad and ensured that our ads won’t appear on this site in the future. Thanks for bringing to our attention.”
Update: Here’s the troll of the hour, Mr. Jack Stuef. Thanks to HillBuzz for the pic.
Normally I’d say be polite when handing out an email, but when it comes to this gutless coward I say let the rage fly!

Update II: Switched at birth? The androgynous “Pat” from SNL.
If he(?) thinks it’s funny to pick on toddler’s with Downs Syndrome, let’s see if he likes it.
