Rush: Sponsors 'practically begging to come back'
World Net Daily ^ | 3/8/12 | Joe Kovacs

Posted on 03/07/2012 10:53:11 PM PST by Impala64ssa

PALM BEACH, Fla. – After national controversy over his calling a Georgetown University law student a “slut” and “prostitute,” radio giant Rush Limbaugh says he has brand-new sponsors lined up to advertise on his program, and some who had canceled are now asking to return.

“We have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks,” Limbaugh said this afternoon, adding he was not going to identify them today.

Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return. We are being very careful about that. I’m not gonna give you any names here. One of them is practically begging to come back.”

There have been reports among some news agencies that at least 40 advertisers have abandoned Limbaugh’s top-rated program since the furor involving Sandra Fluke’s push for insurance-covered birth control erupted last week, but Limbaugh said those news outlets are not being honest.

“Because they lie, and because they don’t understand how it works,” he said. “Everything is fine on the business side. Everything is cool. There is not a thing to worry about. Whatever you’re seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect.”

Looks like the sponsors bit off their noses to spite their faces. On a side note, in a recent article of Hot Rod, they say a good rule of thumb when it comes to tuning a street rod engine is to treat it as the ideal sponsor: you want it to run rich and retarded :p

Either Rush has a powerful market or he doesn’t. The real problem the left has is that the people who really contribute to our economy are Rush supporters in very significant numbers. Leftist emotions and this utter nonsense over Fluke are about as valuable as farts in church. The key is to stay focused and keep the pressure on the left. This farce over Fluke will dissipate quick as a fart in the open air provided that the conservatives don’t allow the distraction to get us off what really matters.

The problem is not calling this Georgetown, Jesuit school sex machine out for what she publicly admitted she is. The real problem is playing into the left’s hands over this farce. Newt had it right with David Gregory on MTP on Sunday, and Rush has it right today. This nonsense will pass very soon. Stay focused! Smart people will not fall for this crap.

Since this a Rush thread, here is an earlier post I made on another thread.

Mr. Ed Theme:
A slut is a slut of course of course

But no one can call one a slut of course

That is of course unless the slut

Is the famous Sandra Fluke

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Go right to the source and ask the slut

If you have to pay her to sit on her but

And she will say, of course you must

Cause she’s the famous Sandra Fluke

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Limbaugh yakity yaks away and loses Carbonite

Letting us know what the sluts won’t give up

Because they think it’s their Civil Right

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

A slut is a slut of course of course

But no one can call one a slut of course

That is of course unless the slut

Is the famous Sandra Fluke

Looks like he is doing no less. HE SCREWED UP! He made personal comments about a person when he should have simply debated the issue. He could have even asked why an unmarried college student wants government to pay for her birth control etc. As a result of doing otherwise the liberal media has had a field day. It was a dumb thing which he did.

Do I feel sorry for Rush? No! Maybe if he checked his ego at the door before going on air he wouldn't have gotten into this mess too start with. Crowing about sponsorship sounds like he didn't learn a darn thing. He was as wrong as Ed Schultz, Don Imus, and a few other radio and TV host doing same. To rely on any of them for one's political guidance or information is insane.

“Fluke Carbonite..”

We called Carbonite on saturday morn and switched to Mozy on Saturday afternoon.

Carbonite actually called us on Tuesday morning to speak with the president and it was some management schmuck from Carbonite. We simply asked the guy why his president tried to make a drama of the Rush bit, and he couldn’t give us an answer. Later told him unless the president talks to him, we won’t switch back.

They want our money. We hold marketing agreements for a couple of Hollywood studios and they want our business.

Oh please.

The reason you can’t call a slut a slut is because it has become normal in our new culture.

The majority of young women are now sluts.

Normally I find myself agreeing with you, but not this time.

He called a spade a spade. Listen to Fluke’s testimony, then you decide what she is (besides a demonstrable fraud, that is). Then....listen to what Maher, Schultz, et al said about Ingraham, Palin, etc.....and then you tell me the difference.

One proved herself to be a slut with her own words. The others were simply attacked for being Conservative women. HUGE difference. Rush called it as it is.

Then play her own words On Air. Play them every day for a month. All he accomplished was legitimizing the others attacks IN THE EYES OF THE LIBERALS is the point being missed. He lowered his show to their standards and now this will be the accepted standard.

The testimony was BAIT pure and simple. It was taken hook, line, and sinker. Calling the testimony repulsive, disgusting, trashy, etc would refer too what was said. Had he stayed in that area? No problem. The Liberals would have been very frustrated too say the least. They were looking for the response they got.

I'm not questioning his right to free speech in the least. Sure he can say anything he wants. Saying some things just simply is not smart even if it is the truth. If we all said to persons what we think or really felt {especially ones making us mad or we disagree with} most of us would be walking around with missing teeth.

Fine. The next time someone cuts you off on the interstate chase them down and call them the names you called them when they couldn't hear you. You got the guts Mark? Or are you a Wimp?

It's not a matter of Wimp it's a matter of being more self disciplined and smarter than the Liberals. She used lawyer tactics to obtain desired outrage and got it. Those same tactics are used on witnesses in courts to discredit them by making someone mad enough to go off on someone verbally. THINK!!!!!

I agree that he screwed up and he stuck his foot in his mouth up to his knee, but it’s not the first time he’s done it and it won’t be the last.

He’s lasted longer than anyone ever thought he would. I personally thought he was a goner and wouldn’t be back after the drug use thing. And, to tell you the truth, I never gained back the level of respect I had for him prior to that.

But that’s neither here nor there. He has an audience. People want to listen to him. HUGE numbers of people are still very loyal listeners and that will not change because of this.

As long as he has that commanding of an audience, he’s going to get all the advertisers he needs. That’s reality.

The left never gets it. It’s all business.

No he doesn't. Say for instance if Rush thought to himself a person he just interviewed had direct parental linkage to a dog he says it on the air or too them? Uh No I don't think so. LOL.

I'm pinging my best FRiends for this one!

A 30 year old slut claims to be 23 goes before Congress...

Roger Clemens lies before Congress...

I think Ms. Fluke would like Clemens, he is known as "The Rocket" after all!!

Flood the phonelines of the scum who cut Rush, you can engage them in kind conversation like how Barry's uncle is continuously on trial for DUI. How if Ms. Fluke is honest (which she is not) she has sex 3 times a day 365 days a year and probably has more STDs than a towel boy in a San Francisco bathhouse.

We got to fight back guys! This is it. If Barry Hussein gets another 4 years he'll abolish term limits.

I know we have waring factions of Newt vs. Santorum. I still predict a brokered convention. Personally, I think Newt could demolish Zero in debates, but I also believe Rick could demolish Zero.

As far as Mittens? The folks I pinged know me and know I don't even want to think of that. I vote March 20th, hopefully the morons in this state will release Romney is like a side show at a bad Carnival!

Rush has Snerdly in his ear while he is on the air. If you listen, Rush responds to Snerdly, but he doesn't always repeat what Snerdly says to him.

In fact, from the way I hear it, Snerdly would be the Black version of Mark Levin without the polish if he had his own show. Rush calms him down, not the other way around.

Since Snerdly is Black, Rush should have just blamed him like Imus blamed his Producer who was the guy who actually made the Nappy Headed Hoe comment. Imus just repeated it and seemed to agree as an afterthought.

Imus took all the heat and I would almost bet it was in part due to the way he stuck it to Clinton at the Correspondent's Dinner years ago when he was the guest comedienne.

Then again, I pretty tired right now and I might just be susceptible to Conspiracy Theories.

I would expect some of those “big sponsors” to issue statements declaring that they are NOT among the “big sponsors” Rush mentioned as “begging to come back”. For example, if Carbonite remains mute, that company would certainly become a likely suspect as one of those “big sponsors”. Similarly with Sleep Train and the rest - - all those companies that bailed on Rush have put themselves in a stunning, “no win” situation. They can’t pipe up and publicly dispute Rush because that is simply a losing proposition. No way would they irritate half their customer base that way.

They have to shut up, and grin and bear it.

Ironically, those companies that bailed and are NOT “begging to come back” have to remain mute as well so as not to irritate half their customer base, PLUS “seal the deal” and permanently alienate themselves from Rush’s show. They have to leave the door open at least a crack in case they figure they need to come back.

If I was an investor in one of these companies that bailed I would be livid.
At them.

Coincidentally, a family friend did CGI work for both BG and Firefly.

He also did the big scene in Serenity where the Fleet comes out of the big Gas Cloud near the end of the Movie. Took him over three months work.

The dude even won an Emmy for Firefly way back when.

Now, back to Cylon #6.... Hubba hubba.

Imus is a shock jock and pushed it way too far likely trying too out do Stern in shock value during that time. A Producer should be the one to make certain their show is not harmed by things which can get them canceled. That is one reason many live shows are actually 5-20 second delayed so Producer can stop comments. His show could be a training film on Dysfunctional.

As in most such things, it’s not necessarily what you say as how you say it. I’ve known people who could look you in the eye and call you a lousy sumbitch.....and you’d laugh. Seriously. Some people can just do that and get away with it. I’ve always found it a bit of a strange phenomenon.

Rush, among other talents, is an amazing wordsmith. He can eviscerate someone with words without swearing which takes REAL skill with the Queen’s English.

His use of the words “slut” and “prostitute” were, of course, taken completely out of context by the Liberals. Typical. They never, ever consider the little term “context” (one of my personal mantras on this subject is “Context counts”). In context, his characterizations of Fluke were dead on; hoisted her by her own petard.

Liberals don’t do that. They decide you offend them because you disagree with their sick world view and it’s all over: they’ll call you everything but ‘white’.

We shouldn’t fall into that same cesspool, but to suggest that Rush foolishly fell overboard into said cesspool is inaccurate. Did he realize the firestorm he’d create when he said what he said? Probably not at the moment, but shortly thereafter; probably during their next break after his ‘rant’. He then knew EXACTLY what was coming and was more than ready for it.

That’s also why he has survived over two decades on the air; hell, he has flourished.

As a result of doing otherwise the liberal media has had a field day.

No such thing as bad publicity in show biz.

If anything, when the kerfluffle is over, Rush will have picked up more listeners, and the sponsors who return will have to dig deeper...

A slut is a slut of course of course...

I have a different take on it, and I think Rush kind of missed the boat. We know that Progressives speak in code and “Women’s Health Care”, in progressive-speak, means birth control, or more specifically: abortion. And Ms. Fluke made the deliberate decision to attend Georgetown, a Catholic institution, to do battle with the school’s birth control policy.

Now let’s consider the $3000 figure that Ms. Fluke is claiming the women at GT need for 3 years of birth control. The only way I can come up with that figure is through multiple abortions.

So, what is Ms Fluke’s ultimate motive in:
1. attending GT
2. trying to change their birth control policy
3. pushing to give testimony before the subcommittee?

I believe the answer is that she, and her like-minded cohorts, want to force the Catholic Church to pay for abortions. And they want to do this in a very public way.

That’s why they wanted her testimony to be on TV. They want to publically demonstrate the ultimate triumph of the State over the Church by forcing the Church to shed innocent blood, to do that which they most abhor, to kill unborn unborn children. They want the Church to have blood on their hands. They want to show Catholics all over the world that the STATE is the SUPREME POWER and that THEY control the STATE.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, once said: “It should be made illegal for any religious group to prohibit dissemination of birth control – even among its own members.” There are many Sanger disciples with us today and they are all on the same power and ego trip.

So, I believe Ms Fluke is not trying to play the “whore” or the “slut” at all. She is trying to play God

I agree with your post #8 - Rush screwed up. He does not screw up often, but his recent crankiness may lead him into further hot water. But when he does screw up he seems to have to justify how right he was, or misunderstood etc. Like the Donavan McNabb comments that took him off ESPN. He still drags that up to insist the media had it all wrong. When he makes ambiguous comments close to or over the line he cannot fairly claim that someone else took it the wrong way. They can take it however they interpret it. And Rush of all people knows that media will cut him NO slack.

Smarter still is to bait the Left and make them eat each other.

I happen to think that getting the Left all worked up in a frenzy over free birth control and having them stay on that message for weeks, months while gas prices shoot the moon and the economy continues to stagnate or sputter is a great contrast for ALL voters to get their minds around.

We need to provoke Obamala to come out for gay marriage, for legalized dope, to bow before the Iranians and to talk gun control. All of this needs to be provoked by us.

Unfortunately, the fly in this year’s ointment is that Obamacare will be held up as constitutional as a tax under the 16th Amendment and Obamala will rub our faces in it. How the nation reacts I have no clue but I would hope it gets behind Gingrich to lead a genuine debate over the following:

If you are a host with a world wide audience, think about your comments before they are uttered. That is what all of this massive “show prep” that Rush brags about spending endless hours on is for. But once you say something, own it. Stand by it no matter what.
If the day comes that it does become necessary to apologize, then apologize for your own actions or words, without dragging anyone else into it. “I was acting like those on the Left” sounded like “ ...but they do it, too!”, coming from a five year old.
See ya, Rush. I’m going back to Andrew Wilcow.

I agree with your post #8 - Rush screwed up. He does not screw up often, but his recent crankiness may lead him into further hot water. But when he does screw up he seems to have to justify how right he was, or misunderstood etc. Like the Donavan McNabb comments that took him off ESPN. He still drags that up to insist the media had it all wrong. When he makes ambiguous comments close to or over the line he cannot fairly claim that someone else took it the wrong way. They can take it however they interpret it. And Rush of all people knows that media will cut him NO slack.

All that does is give them oppertunity to put the barb in deeper. I never understood why the heck he said that about McNabb. It wasn't really what he said but it seemed so out of place. What I mean is I can't imagine a group of men watching a game and one say that. LOL

Well said. I teach in a public high school. Do you know what I have noticed? Girls don't want to be pretty anymore, but instead slutty and provocative. They do not understand the concept of leaving something to the imagination, nor do they understand they power that they retain by doing so.
