Don't Rush To Write Off Limbaugh, Analysts Say He's lost 11 advertisers since using crude language to describe a student for her views on birth control, but analysts say his huge audience should allow him to thrive.
Analysts say the size of radio commentator Rush Limbaugh's audience should allow him to continue to thrive despite a loss of advertisers over his crude comments about a female student's views on birth control. By James Rainey and Matea Gold
March 5, 2012 A new week greeted Rush Limbaugh with four more advertiser defections, for a total of 11, along with a sharp rebuke from former Republican presidential nominee John McCain. Peter Gabriel asked that his song "Sledgehammer" no longer be used on Limbaugh's radio program.
Even after Limbaugh issued a rare apology, the furor that had erupted when the conservative radio host called an activist law student a "slut" and a "prostitute" showed no sign of abating Monday.
But a backlash that might be a career-breaker for some commentators seemed unlikely to dent Limbaugh's considerable stature among his 15 million weekly listeners and conservative leaders.
The criticism delivered by most Republican officeholders was muted. One political action committee stepped up to buy even more advertising on his program. All of which suggested that "The Rush Limbaugh Show" might be too big to fail.
The controversy began last week, when the radio host addressed President Obama's proposal that health insurance provide free birth control. Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke spoke at a congressional hearing in favor of that idea, only to be attacked by Limbaugh.
He described the 30-year-old as one of a group of "feminazis" who effectively wanted government to subsidize their sexual activity, and he demanded, "We want you to post the [sex] videos online so we can all watch."

Yeah, they luv him ‘cause he’s their puppet. They wrote puff pieces on him and helped get him nominated in 2008. Then they turned on him like a bad penny in the General Election. In short, he was groomed by the MSM to lose to whoever the Democratic candidate was.
does anyone know where to order two by tea?
Exactly. With Zero, it is total nihilism. We cannot be anything or have any voice, because he has decided he would not need any himself but repeat the teleprompter.
He does not understand why we hate his death “lifestyle”, much like that perv. homosexual muslim who would harass soldiers downrange and demand them why they could not put up with a gay boyfriend.
It is one thing to be mafya and protect your interests selfishly, but to be a “McLaim” who tolerates the View’s right to call each other slut (nly because they can as priviledged of free speech we apparently are not allowed now), it is a whole other ball game when one embraces the “be nothing” mantra of total losers.
Ms. Fluke is just as mine as she would be theirs, and if I call her slut, I can, not them, is the way I see it. I pay my gosh darn taxes, dang it.
I went to twoifbytea.com when I ordered mine. I really like the peach tea the best......
Some variety would be good. As I mentioned the John Phillip Sousa marches would be soul stirring music. Can you imagine how our pride in America would rise while tuning into Rush Limbaugh and he opens his program with this, this or this?
Amen and thanks!
Disagree on Ted Nugent, the Romney-bot.
You're right of course. That was a hugh mistake on my part -- Nugent is out. I think Chuck Norris, a good Christian Conservative who supports Newt Gingrich can come up with an opening for Rush Limbaugh. He did a superb job with the Walker Texas Ranger theme, which remains one of my favorite television programs (and I'd sure like to see it revived).
