Posted on 03/06/2012 5:18:28 PM PST by Free ThinkerNY
As advertisers continue to bail from "The Rush Limbaugh Show" after the host called a law student a "slut" and "prostitute," the superPAC supporting GOP presidential candidate Newt Gingrich has essentially doubled down.
Gingrich himself has denounced Limbaugh's remarks, but it hasn't cooled the pro-Gingrich group Winning Our Future.
"Actually, we bought more," Rick Tyler, a senior adviser for Winning Our Future, tells NPR. Tyler says the superPAC expanded its media buy for pro-Gingrich spots on the show because the conservative talk host "reaches more listeners who are likely primary voters in all the states than anybody else."
Tyler declined to say how much was spent on the ads, but says they are a "big part" of a national media buy in Super Tuesday states. He says the ads will continue to run in such states as Kansas, Alabama and Mississippi, which hold their primaries next week.

I had a dream that Newt was prez and then I woke up.
So much for the financial loss from the ‘bail-outs.’
I wish Rush would reveal how many new 24/7 subscribers he is getting due to this situation. I’m thinking a lot of new accounts.
He’s advertising heavily when I listen to Rush. Well, the PAC is.
Since the market opened on Monday through its close today, Carbonite stock (NASDAQ:CARB) has plummeted nearly 12 percent, outpacing the drop of the NASDAQ index in that same time period by nine-and-a-half points. It was also one of the biggest decliners on the NASDAQ on Tuesday.
By the way, what is the meaning of your tag line?
And the GOP continues losing because it is acting as the enforcing arm of the democratic party against dissent and denounciation.
Nice to know Romney will be voted in only to Danforth like crash on Conservatives the way the ATF did at WACO.
“Gingrich himself has denounced Limbaugh’s remarks...”
Not sure, but I am seeming to recall that Newt actually was one of the few to stand up for Rush on this issue. Am I completely wrong on that?
This is what I’m remembering...
Gingrich Rips David Gregory For Making Limbaugh ‘The great national crisis of this week’
While Rush does not advocate boycotts, I wish he would list all the sponsors who deserted him in the face of this episode so we his DittoHeads could decide on our own if we would want to use those products or not..I decided not to use Carbonite.
Gingrich did NOT denounce Limbaugh’s remarks. Santorum did though...
What are the “civil public discourse” politically correct words to be be used when you’re talking about sluts and prostitutes?!
