The Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Wednesday, March 7, 2012
EIB Network ^ | March 7, 2012 | Rush Limbaugh

Posted on 03/07/2012 9:04:37 AM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back — just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! America’s anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do—that’s host. Get ready to what you were born to do—that’s listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

Michelle Malking has an article about the War on Conservative Women. I tried to link it but I get a message that the Document is not on the server. It can be accessed by running keyword Malkin.

That's the one.

Regarding sponsors dropping out, I had a suspicion that some of them were not advertising nationally on Rush's program, but were on local stations.

This stuff about Rush’s advertisers is HILARIOUS!!

Local commercial buys that are NOT EVEN on his show are releasing statements to pull advertising from his show! They may not even be currently advertising!! Ha!

I hadn’t heard the “Rush will be suspended” rumor yet.

The media is still dogpiling, trying to make this look like it’s a bigger deal than it is and still has legs. They did a long story on HLN (a network that no one watches) about a half hour ago regarding the “controversy” over Rush being honored by a bust in the MO Hall of Fame.

18,000 possible different sponsors, have lost “28”. And that 28 is a joke number. Too funny.

I say to let them come back. This has been a colossally humbling teaching moment for them, and perhaps they have painfully learned the error of their ways. I would rather see the quitters come back as a testament to the power of Rush’s audience.

Another men's UConn game going on during Rush's show (sigh), but - strangely - WHYN 560 AM appears to be off the air. They did the news, then nothing but static for over ten minutes now (starting at about 12:07 pm ET).

I e-mailed WHYN asking why they're off the air. Strange... hope they didn't cancel Rush's show. :-(

Fortunately I'm listening to Rush via his website now.

I am glad that Rush is taking the time to run the numbers. It’s going to cause such grief on the left.

Rush is giving a great lesson on advertising. I might add one other thing about radio stations pulling Rush off, there is always internet radio that picks him up.

Great job Carbonite! NOT!!!

Having been in the marketing/advertising business for many years what Rush is saying is spot on. The media is falling all over themselves to create a story where none exists. Seriously, an advertiser will go where the money/audience is.
That being said I would triple the rate of those who temporarily pulled off the program...

Are y’all in photo #11? Handsome folks all ‘round.

We dominate tailgating. Many people, if they don’t have tickets, go to the tailgates anyway.

Do you know who “Mr. Penny” is?

Good idea. If the lefties start attacking the local station in our area for carrying Rush they will laughingly dismissed.

Rush has only 18,000 advertisers ... PSHAW !

And to think all Limbaugh had to do to build his popularity up to that level was only work a measly 80+ hours per week. It was practically given to him ... or perhaps not.

I HAVE heard the “Rush will be suspended” rumor, BUT I knew it wasn’t true.

I just wish he wouldn’t have spent any time on his advertisers in light of Super
Tuesday and just let the market take care of it, you know it will just bring out
the llorts.

You think the media actually cares about the truth behind this?

They’re most likely just reading Media Matters press releases verbatim.

I’m hoping MOZY.com will sign up with Rush!

In your face Carbonite.

Even before Carbonite bailed on Rush, they were on shaky ground.

From Carbonite’s most recent quarterly filing with the SEC:

“We experienced net losses of $17.4 million for 2008, $19.2 million for 2009, $25.8 million for 2010, and $17.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2011, respectively, and have an accumulated deficit of $94.3 million as of September 30, 2011.”

Doing the math, that’s $156.7 million down the drain!
