You know that the pressure we brought down on that obese drug addict became too much when he was forced to apologize… he is now in full panic/damage-control mode, but it won’t save him. He will regret ever mentioning that students name on his pathetic show.

"Several companies have said they will stop advertising on Rush Limbaugh's radio program. Sleep Train, a mattress retailer based in the Sacramento area that has advertised on Limbaugh's show for a quarter-century, was the first to announce it was leaving Friday. ProFlowers responded to tweets with a message that it is "re-evaluating" its marketing strategy. Quicken Loans, Sleep Number and Legal Zoom also announced they are considering leaving Limbaugh or planning to do so. "We have listened to our customers & have decided to cease our advertising on The Rush Limbaugh Show immediately," Citrix Systems Inc., a software development company, said."

Talking Points memo reported the NBA Cleveland Cavaliers announced they were suspending " any and all on-air advertising with the Rush Limbaugh radio program, citing "inflammatory comments" coupled with valuable feedback from both clients and team employees."

The guy is poison.

SIXTH ADVERTISER — CARBONITE — DROPS LIMBAUGH DESPITE HIS ‘APOLOGY’ BECAUSE HE’S BEYOND THE ‘BOUNDS OF DECENCY’
Mar 3, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Moments ago, Carbonite – a company providing backup software for computers – announced that it will no longer advertise on Rush Limbaugh’s show. CEO David Friend made clear in a Facebook statement that, despite Limbaugh’s “apology” issued tonight, the company was still pulling its ads because it wants to “contribute to a more civilized public discourse”:

No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse.

Indeed, evidencing the point made by Friend, Limbaugh’s “apology” is riddled with offensive statements, comparing contraception to “sneakers” and implying that birth control is only a subsidy for personal sexual activity.

According to a ThinkProgress count, Carbonite is the sixth company to drop Limbaugh in the last couple of days. We will continue to keep an updated count HERE.
Update

The Huffington Post notes that AOL — the parent company of HuffPost — has not yet dropped Limbaugh.

The really amazing, irrational thing is that in his non believable apology drug addict, Rush L., claims he intended no personal attack.

You know, when I call someone an unflattering term I generally intend it as a personal attack. I am just saying.

What? Is he saying he was in a fugue state? Or that he was on oxy again and wasn't responsible for his words? Or is he saying he doesn't know what he's saying?

(Bingo.)

Fat Pat, you have no clue what you are talking about. Rush has lost a ton, but you are still ugly AND stupid, so he wins.

Rush was correct, she is a slutwhore. She just wishes Bill Clinton was sticking his corona out for little girls to smoke. This whole thing of having the tax payers foot the bill for all their whoring around is BS. YOU gotta pay to play, not me forkhead.You want someone else to pay for it, go to China.

Well, that's interesting.

Rush "apologizes" on a Saturday night, when most people don't follow the news? But in time to impact discussion on Meet The Press & the other Sunday morning shows?

'Ol PooPoo wants to hear more. Rush filled a lot of air time last week trashing this woman and her reputation. So let's hear him discuss his "apology" next week. What was he thinking last week? Why the change of heart? What is different in his mind and heart?

Discerning persons can rightly wonder how much is repentance and how much is the hell Rush is catching from listeners. Did other sponsors threaten to dump him? Were major stations in no mood to take the heat he caused?

Let's hear him talk about it, in his own voice. Maybe he could appear with Sandra Fluke on the air in a neutral setting, like Morning Joe or Nightline, and apologize in person.

A segment or two, accountable to interviewers and Ms Fluke, could serve as a confessional and/or an intervention. Rush could prove he's sincerely sorry for what he has said, and can help put this sorry episode behind ud all.

What Rush did doesn't qualify as an apology. He called her two derogatory names and said something like "I made a poor choice of words" If he's sincere in apologizing, he needs be a man about it and pick up the phone and call her. And, he needs to not mince words, as he did on his face-page or wherever he supposedly apologized.
I'd very much love to see a list of his sponsors.

FLUSH RUSH!

Rush Limbaugh is not a real man. His voice sounds like an old queen. All he does is sit on his big butt for a couple of hours a few days of the week and gripe like an old queen that will never be satisfied.

Besides,Rush avoided the draft because of a little boil on his butt. Rush Limbaugh personifies the pussification of men in America.

Ignoramus. One does not take a birth control pill for each time they have sex. It's not like the viagra Rush takes. One pill a day is all it takes. So don't be so stupid. "The pill" is also taken daily by tens of millions of women every day. Not because they're having so much sex, but because it regulates their period, makes their period less painful and troublesome, and is prescribed for several female reproductive organ problems, not associated with sex.
But what do you care? You're an idiot. You drink from the Rush Kool-aid. Does that highly educated girl look like a slut? Does she dress like a slut? Did she mention sex once? No, no and no.
The best part, Rush will lose millions from all the advertisers leaving him. I thought he went to far when he called Michele Obama "uppity", which was always a slur used to describe a minority that didn't know their place below the white man.

So let's recap - Rush Limbaugh apologizes to young American women who have done nothing wrong. Barack Obama apologizes to foreign religious fanatics who murder American soldiers.

It's pretty bad when Rush Limbaugh is winning comparisons with the President of the United States.

Violence erupted because Korans were burned at our base. This violence lead to injuries and fatalities of American men. If an apology curbs some of that violence, then American lives will have been saved by such an apology.
Let's see, one apology saves lives. The other accomplishes nothing. The ignorance of the chauvinist has already been exposed. He's losing millions in advertising.
As for apologies. In 2008, Bush apologized for a similar incident that had similar consequences. It's amazing how often Obama is held to a different standard by you hypocrites.
