Target Now A Target Needs Salvation

In banishing Salvation Army bell ringers from its stores this holiday season, Target has become a target for justified criticism. Most retail stores, Target included, rake in approximately 2/3 of their annual revenue between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As more than one commentator has pointed out, in booting the Salvation Army, Target is biting the hand that feeds it.

Here's a sampling of well Targeted commentary:

Hugh Hewitt observes:

UPDATE: Carol Platt Liebau blogged on Target as Scrooge more than a week ago. Wagonboy blogged on it tonight. And I am told that by tomorrow, www.dontshoptarget.com will be up and running. Here is another take on the effects of the target decision. It isn't just lost donations:

Fred Barnes on The Beltway Boys and Kate O'Beirne on The Capital
Gang both "knocked Target tonight for exiling the Salvation Army. There's still time to change your mind, Mr. Ulrich.

I think Target made an expensive decision that will have lingering consequences.

Update: The MSM have entered the Target hunt.
