I was just a boy at the time, and I just thought that Freeps should know just how much Rush has done for Sleep Train, over these decades.
I'm really mad about this, because someone treated me just like Sleep Train has recently treated Rush, and I know it doesn't feel good.
Great story, but Rush was in his 30s when he started his NY & National show.
...did you let Sleep Train know how you feel?
“Dale fired Rush”
Hmm. Rush fans now know what beds NEVER to buy.
gaijin, thanks for the retrospective.
Good to “see” you again.
I’d be much more sympathetic if Rush hadn’t thrown US under the bus today.
The to add salt in the wound ole RUSHBO goes & makes an apology. The guy who calls the chikifycation of America goes & does a mea culpa. RUSH - RIP.
Thanks - this is interesting backstory
Well it goes without saying these idiots are making a HUGE mistake because the majority of their customers are conservatives or just Repub. Rush listeners. Do companies like Carbonite actually think liberals are going buy what they are selling? Lberals who refuse to work and want everything for free including condoms? LOL! When they come crawling back to Rush begging for air time I hope he charges these fools triple.

The Sleep Train
A LOT of sponsored pulled their support over this faux controversy nonsense.
It really could be the end of the Rush Limbaugh show.
Rush would have been 33 in 1984 starting out at KFBK.
I think this was a Clear Channel hit, not a Dale Carlsen decision.
Rush always has iced tea to sell. I would rather he shrink in number of radio stations until this blows over. Money always wins.
If he can sell stuff, he will be on the air.
Great recall. Thanks.
The point is that it was a Capitalist win/win.
It's not Carlseh's fault that he wants to protect his life's work.
I would bet that if anyone here could talk with El Rushbo, and get the straight scoop, he would say that he was upset with himself for the lapse.
I suspect that Sleep Train will be back in the Limbaugh stable of advertisers before long. On the rare occasion that I need a mattress, I go to Sleep Train, and will continue to do so.
Sounds like this Dale Carlsen is a disloyal scumbag who can go to hell.
And take his political correctness with him.
The company can hire the slut to be spokesperson. People will buy more mattresses since sluts story will convince everyone it is a superior mattress. She can say it was the reason she needed to have so much money for BC. Bye bye Rush. The slut will come out on top.
