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.

Good for the Godfather.
Where’s that Simpson’s character’s “ha ha”?
Sleep Train gets derailed.
“Bite me” said the mastiff to the Shih Tzu.
Not only does Rush have a huge audience, his audience listens to the commercials. The audience does not flip around from station to station. They listen to the show and the commercials in their entirety. Screw you Sleep Train.
This sleep company no longer exist!
This is a big deal. ST was one of Rush’s original backers.
I’m doing the ‘happy dance’.
If he picks up another matress company, they could be in trouble.
These companies need to think twice before they jump at every liberal witch hunt. Liberals are notoriously cheap people. They know how to protest, but do they do the majority of buying?
He let Carbonite come back. They’re back on next week.
“Good for the Godfather.”
Rush INC went to the mattresses.
He has handled all of this very well. I didn’t think it could be turned around like this.
Sometimes revenge is a dish best eaten hot off the grill.
Rush has regrown a pair. What ever he’s taking he should give it to Boner and McCornhole.
Today Rush settles all family business.
“Sleep Train gets derailed.”
Sleep Train sleeps with the fishes!
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.
“If he picks up another matress company, they could be in trouble.”
Well, they could get Sandy “Mattressback” Fluke to shill for them.....
Me & Carbonite is finished.
Same for Go To My PC....
Sleep Train was fluked by left-wing activists.
Well maybe some of you do. I personally use commercials to fetch drinks, food, use the restroom etc.
Good for Rush! I knew these companies would come crawling back eventually..awwwwwwwwwwwww poor daily kooks, your dream of having Rush off the air has failed..miserably! I still will not buy from any company that abandoned Rush to begin with, that includes Carbonite, Sears, and whoever else will eventually come crawling back on their hands and knees begging for ad space
“He let Carbonite come back. Theyre back on next week.”
I am sorry to hear that.
I have dumped Carbonite and do not intend to return.
A number of FReepers have mentioned other companies that seem
to be better.
Sleep Train with the fishes.
Rush and Sleep Train have some interesting history:
It was quite a betrayal by the Sleep Train guy. He totally deserved being cut off by Rush.
I just received some blueberry diet tea. :)
