Skip to comments.Report: Company who dropped ads from Limbaugh’s show asks to be reinstated (Fair weather friends)
Posted on 03/09/2012 6:27:06 AM PST by SeekAndFind
A Limbaugh spokesman said that California mattress company Sleep Train asked to restart a voiced endorsement from Limbaugh that it had publicly cut off last week. The company said at the time that it does not condone such negative comments toward any person.…
Sleep Train’s departure from the program had been billed by some observers as particularly significant because the mattress retailer had been with Limbaugh show for 25 years. Yet the tone of Sleep Train’s withdrawal statement last Friday hinted it might not be pulling out for the long run…
Limbaugh spokesman Brian Glicklich on Thursday forwarded a copy of an email that he said had been sent to Sleep Train Chief Executive Dale Carlsen. In it, Glicklich wrote that Limbaugh had personally received the company’s requests to resume advertising on his show.
Unfortunately,” Glicklich wrote, “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.
Via the Daily Rushbo, he talked about this a bit on yesterday’s show, claiming that two sponsors had already asked to return and that “one of them is practically begging to come back.” I don’t know why Sleep Train would pull ads if the prospect of losing Rush forever made them nervous enough to cave this quickly. They’ve alienated the right by abandoning him and irritated the left by going squishy over it. Have we learned nothing from l’affaire Komen, my friends? Rule one of inserting yourself into a hot-button public debate: Once you pick a side, stick to it. Sheesh.
” Allowing them, or anyone else back in, will only encourage more of this in the future.”
Understand. I wish you success in your mattress hunt.

These guys are the George Soros-funding leftwing nuts that have led the attack on Rush...
Temperpedic Day Spa best bed ever!!
That's not very long for a quality mattress. Are you dating Sandra Fluke?
Chew on that Sleep Train.
I was waiting for that comment from one of you.
The current mattress is a Stearns and Foster.
It’s been the worst one yet, especially for what I paid. (and I wish it was because of extracurricular activities.)
The only thing it’s good for now is a trampoline for my boys.
Madison avenue lives (and dies) by the theory that ALL advertising is positive even if it is bad.
and Hollywood believes all publicity is good even if it’s bad.
But, look and Linsey Lohan (sp) and others. Tanked and not out her 20’a.
Get a Spa Sensations 12" Theratouch Memory Foam Mattress at Walmart The link is here.
After a lot of research, we got one and love it! We already bought 2 of their 8 inch units for our daughters a few years ago,
Many, many positive posts about this product. I am not associated with the manufacturer or Walmart in any way - just a very satisfied customer.
My answer would be:
You go to the back of the line that is waiting for ad spots .
IF there is another Mattress company ahead of you in line......Oh, Well......
Tell them to hire Fluke to pitch their products.””
Someone needs to contack Rush and tell him that!!!!
This ‘woman’ should be selling paper bags-——because she is a 3 bagger if there ever was one!!!
The first mattress that I paid for and used until I was 30 years old was a used generic model that I paid $15 for.
Two different bed companies, both dumped Rush.
Select Comfort/Sleep Number.
Has someone made a list of the advertisers that dropped Rush so I can make sure I do not buy anything from them ever again?
