When Daddy Warbucks tells his minions to promote Language X, and if it 
sucks, then the majority of those minions must tread water frantically just 
to write the simplest libraries and packages for X. The language's poor 
quality slows down all the minions. Daddy Warbucks doesn't mind, because he 
always has more minions to throw at the problem.

Then all the other companies that suck-up to that company will offload the 
labor of supporting X, for free, further diluting the effects of X's poor 
quality.
