Rush already has advertisers lining up around the block just to get a spot on his show.

He has nothing to lose except the losers.

The point is, they have FINALLY found a way to take down conservative media.

They feel the power now, and they will use it for this election. Stupid republicans got pulled into their trap, the same one they pull out every election year, SEX and woman's reproductive rights, it's her body and all that nonsense.

The Democrats live in the gutter, and don't understand why we don't,but the gutter rats are growing and there is almost no poison that will kill them, they have developed a taste for our disgust with them.

When will we learn? I can guarantee you that after this election it will all quiet down, but regurgitate once more in the next one. GUARANTEED and we fall for it.

Did AutoZone join the boycott?

I’ve heard conflicting answers.

I just sent this email to "ProFlowers", hope you do the same:

To whom it may concern:

I want to address your decision to cancel your advertising with the Rush Limbaugh show.

Your decision to support the government's tyrannical move to ignore the United States Constitution by overriding the freedom Americans are guaranteed under the First Amendment - to believe and worship as they please, is - in a word - treasonous.

You have been accosted by a small group of liberal activists in their unending quest to silence America's Conservative voice - Rush Limbaugh - under the threat that they will boycott your service. In reality, these occupier types are not likely to frequent your establishment anyway, and probably buy their flowers at Kroger, or the Dollar the plastic variety.

Moreover, those who listen to Rush have been surveyed often and found to be of the middle-class, educated, and reasonably affluent. These are the type of people who are plugged into the internet, who actually have credit cards, and are the most likely customers for your products and services.

I am re-posting this email on several blogs and starting a viral email on social sites and other places to get the word out about your support of Sandra Fluke and her wanton, promiscuous, sexual behavior at taxpayers' expense. It is obvious that your support of her cause is the catalyst that prompted you to drop your advertising on the Limbaugh show, which shows that not only will Ms. Fluke to anything for money, but so will ProFlowers. This is a good indication that you might share her newfound title.

I would dare say that your products are sent by those who want to honor their wives, Mothers and girlfriends who are fine, wholesome and decent American women...guys don't usually send flowers to the likes of Ms. Fluke.

As an advertising business veteran I will close with this; you are making your decision based on the grumblings of a small majority who were of the hard-left persuasion and were already enemies of the Rush Limbaugh's conservative show, not on the millions of listeners he reaches who are in the market segment that you seek. You must have known something about Rush's audience BEFORE you bought the advertising in the first place. And because of a attention-seeking liberal plant, you cancelled all that exposure? That is a really, stupid, business decision.

I have heard your ad on Rush's show many times, for like many millions of people I am a listener. As a veteran of radio I can tell you that Limbaugh is a communications genius and you had to know he was a conservative when you signed up. People - like myself - tend to trust companies who advertise on his show, as he does not cater to the lowest common denominator like Ms. Fluke.

By the way, when a woman wants taxpayer money so she can have prolific sex, we don't need a talk show host to tell us what she is anyway.

I will do my floral shopping locally. We have many fine florists here who do not decide whether or not to sell me flowers based on my political beliefs. ProFlowers has turned out to be just more obama political hacks.

Perhaps FED EX would become a sponsor, if they get some calls explaining our concern for their lose of business and why.

As other have said, those liberals or 99%er's don't buy these products anyway.

The left moves like a choreographed ballet. They are really showing their power with Limbaugh. They can crush cny given conservative like a bug.

Now to Limbaugh. By his apology he is showing that he doesnot pledge his life, his fortune or his sacred honor.

A bunch of terrible idiotic moron companies selling services I don't need or can't get elsewhere cheaper.

Amazing these crap places make profit enough to afford advertising.

Just goes to show the power of the Limbaugh show.

There will be plenty of companies to take their place.

I think this t-shirt company will be a great replacement for advertising on Rush’s show.

I see another business investment for Rush in that idea, or FreeRepublic, wouldn't that be something.

Hey Jim, what you think? I believe you could find a lot of good employees right here, and may work cheap, just to show them. I like it, and people need jobs.

So ProFlowers has terminated their advertising on the Rush Limbaugh Show, millions of conservatives who can now boycotting ProFlowers!!

What do you FReepers say we start helping out Jim McCann of 1-800-FLOWERS dot COM? Wouldn’t it be a tribute to our efforts if we could show an appreciable ascent in their sales numbers, due to the metrosexual, limp wristed decision by ProFlowers!

To: southernmomma instead of carbonite.

I emailed Pro Flowers:

You rejected both Rush’s 1st amendment rights and then his apology.

I shall no longer support your products and services.
