Boycott Limbaugh's Advertisers, Part Deux

So just a couple of weeks after I purposely got Mother's Day flowers from a company that advertises on Rush Limbaugh's radio program, I see this:
A Boston-based company that provides computer hard-drive backup services is setting up a customer support center in Maine's second largest city with plans to have more than 150 employees by the end of the year.
Carbonite Inc. announced Tuesday that it is leasing about 20,000 square feet of space in Lewiston.
CEO David Friend said the company is moving its customer support jobs from India to Maine. He said he was drawn to Maine by its work force, its broadband infrastructure and support he's received from government officials.
Carbonite expects to employ up to 50 people by the end of the summer and 250 by the end of 2012.
Carbonite is a regular advertiser on Limbaugh's program. Sean Hannity's too.

Okay, so you're a good little progressive leftist liberal who supports good progressive leftist liberal causes. You're thinking you really need to back up your hard drive because you have all kinds of important stuff on there. Do you:
  1. Go to Carbonite's website and sign up, gritting your teeth because their advertising helps Limbaugh pay his bills?
  2. Continue your boycott of Carbonite, gritting your teeth because they're a company that's actually creating jobs in America?
It's a pretty simple choice, really. It all boils down to one question: Do you hate Rush Limbaugh so much that you'll punish his sponsors even at the cost of Americans jobs?
