Rush Limbaugh launches his own brand of sweet tea, Two if by Tea, a play on the famous Longfellow poem about Paul Revere′s ride at the start of the American Revolutionary War. While some may think this is directly connected to the recent controversy over Sarah Palin comments about Paul Revere, Limbaugh′s product began being developed months ago. The roll out this week has been phenomenal, with millions of bottles sold, in twelve-packs, swamping both the website and phone orders.
