Posted on 03/08/2012 3:38:53 PM PST by Nachum
Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertisers apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke.
The company, Sleep Train, calls itself the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.
In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the companys request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy.
Thank you for your requests last week and this week to restart your voiced endorsement in local markets of The Rush Limbaugh Show, the email begins. Rush received your requests personally.
Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaughs character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the future.

They should pay for their ingratitude.
If he has time, or the inclination to send one of his minions out, he might seek out a Sleep Train competitor (a company in the same geographic region), and help them grow their business.
Well that sucks! He should make an example of them to!
Wouldn’t surprise me if they’re offering a sweetheart deal to whoever is their main competitor on the Left Coast.
What were Sleep Train’s public remarks?
It bugs me that in “the public forum”, liberals can say anything they want because part of their agenda is that ideas don’t have to make sense, but conservatives comments get trashed because their agenda is that ideas must make sense.
Die MSM, die!
Carbonite may be back on Rush, but I won’t be back to Carbonite.
“Today Rush settles all family business.”
:). and calls in favors.
I informed Sleep Number that I had been seriously considering a second SN bed for our guest room. But now they couldn’t pay me to take one!
I think that’s a diplomatic way of saying “shove it up your ass...”
“Sometimes revenge is a dish best eaten hot off the grill.”
LOL! I like that line so much I am gonna steal it!
I had heard that Carbonite lost around 33% of thier stock price after the switch. Heh.
That's the way to deal with the Socialist agenda sympathizers. Bitch slap them right back.
Now, if only our elected conservative politicians would learn to do the same..............
oh man...this makes me very, very happy! Way to go Rush!
You are full of it.
OH NO! Doesn't matter. I'm cancelling.
I think this has some personal history behind it. Perhaps an ‘etu Brute?’ moment where Caesar not only survived, but is on the counter offensive. Just guessing, but he is dealing with this one in a different manner.
