Sleep Train, one of the companies that dropped its ads from Rush Limbaugh's radio program after Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a "slut" and a "prostitute," asked Limbaugh for another chance.
But Limbaugh denied the company's request.
The Times added that Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich forwarded an email he said had been sent to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen. According to that email, Limbaugh himself considered the company's request and denied it.
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 began. Rush received your requests personally.
Unfortunately," the email continues, "your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh's 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.

Are you sure it wasn't "Dis is Lees in de customer sarviss department" from some cave in India?
That's why Rush has the golden microphone and a 20 million strong audience and you don't. I'm sure he forgives...but that doesn't mean he has to let them have access to his huge and prosperous audience. They blew it...let them find another venue.
Yes, they did. But where is their national apology. You can't expect forgiveness unless you ask for it. They wanting to get back on his show doesn't speak of an apology - it's speaks of their pocket.
No, his priority is loyalty to his audience NOT the advertisers. The advertisers PAY for access to his audience. Letting Sleep Train back in would be putting them before the audience. Rush had little choice here but to tell them to pound sand.
Agree. Sleep Train made a business decision. So did Rush.

Thanks, but examiner drivel interests me very little.
At the end of December Gallup reported that Obama's support with women had slipped to an all time low.
Next comes George 'Stepped-in-awful-stuff' with his bizarre questions about contraception during the republican debate.
Then up pops Sandra Fluke.
Fluke is being represented and booked for appearances by the progressive PR firm SKDKnickerbocker, where Anita Dunn the former Obama communications director is a managing director.
This is as obvious as rain on a side walk. Just as obvious is the media's role in the whole promotion. Now, it's time for us to bring out the why.
There are two kinds of democrats: The one's who are working to punish America and the ones who support them.
A mistake? A mistake is forgetting to carry the one when doing addition, Sleep Train made a choice, they chose unwisely, and now they will pay the consequences.
I hope everyone gets a chance to watch this and share.

Well, what do you know? They caved too.
The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.
You’re lucky you got Liz and not Peggy.
We need to claim some scalps here. That will send a message to jelly-spined CEO’s that there is more to be lost by throwing us under the bus than from tolerating static from Media Matters.
Sleep Train and Carbonite MUST DIE!
