Well...I just emailed the Girl Scouts of Oregon...

I was a Girl Scout for 11 years....I will NEVER buy another GS cookie or support them. You pulled your ads from Rush Limbaugh? You are idiots who don't believe in free speech, plus you must really believe in whatever that Fluke gal is pushing....eh? How sad. Good bye.

That's 2 million DAILY listeners, 20 million annually averaged out.(more or less)

Still that leaves him as king of the airwaves with no competition

You are enormously mistaken. Try actually listening to Rush once in a while.

I used to shop both Sears and Penneys, but for at least 2 years I have been going to Kohls and.....are you ready for this......Wal-Mart! I go to Wally World for khakis, Wrangler jeans and pocket tee shirts. I WILL NOT wear Levis. The company is as pro-gay and pro-abortion as “Botox Nancy”
Peee-ooo-losie!

It was Rush that suggested the democrats should run Obama 2 years before Obama announced he was going to run. When he was running for US Senate against Keys. Rush was saying that is the person we should be careful of.

Clearing Up Misinformation on Our Sponsors
March 07, 2012

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I want to ask if you will indulge me for just a brief few minutes for some inside baseball stuff before we move on to our review of the issues of the day, politics and so forth, Super Tuesday, the results, and where we are.  The reason for this is, once again, so much misinformation about this program and advertisers is in the mainstream media.  People are reporting things that, A, are not true, and B, I don’t even think the people reporting it have the slightest idea what they’re talking about, nor do they have the ability to understand it. 

But I know that many of you are spending a lot of time — God bless you — on the Web doing what you can to express your support for the program.  And judging from the reaction of my own brother, who sends me a note last night, “You really lost 28 sponsors?”  No, we have not lost 28 sponsors.  “Well, how can they say it?”  Because they lie and because they don’t understand how it works, and that’s what I want to try and explain.  In fact, folks, we have three brand-new sponsors that will be starting in the next two weeks.  Now, obviously, I’m not gonna tell you who they are today, but we’ve got three brand-new, full-fledged sponsors starting in the next two weeks. 

Two of the sponsors who have canceled have asked to return.  We are being very careful about that.  Not gonna give you any names here.  One of them is practically begging to come back.  Everything is fine on the business side.  Everything’s cool.  There is not a thing to worry about.  What you’re seeing on television about this program and sponsors and advertisers is just incorrect.  And let me try to explain how this works.  Let’s take the claim that we’ve lost 28 sponsors.  Sponsors on this program are both local and national.  We deal with the national sponsors on this program.  We have 600-plus stations.  They sell their own commercials.  We don’t have anything to do with those sponsors.  We don’t get paid by those sponsors.  We have no idea who those sponsors are.

Rush will lose me for sure when they pull that PSA about the woman sending her toddler up the ladder to knock down the hornet’s nest. When the PSAs “flee”, Rush will be in heap big trouble (A little Indian lingo there). LOL! This whole “Slutgate” thing is a joke. Barry the Kenyan Guy is always looking for cheap laughs. I can see why he couldn’t resist getting involved. His wanting to get some skin in the “Slutgate” game really disgraces the position of the U.S. President but Barry doesn’t care. He’s a slug.

Actually what Rush did could be called a great jobs program for all these local stations. The paltry few advertisers that jumped ship on his show just freed up some prime time spots for other company”s that would like to advertise in this market.

Why to rock it Rush ! You just created more jobs than Obama !

Ridiculous isn’t it. She is indeed a Political Prostitute

I gave a little different take on it. We know that Progressives speak in code and “Women’s Health Care”, in progressive-speak, means birth control, or more specifically: abortion. And Ms. Fluke made the deliberate decision to attend Georgetown, a Catholic institution, to do battle with the school’s birth control policy.

Now let’s consider the $3000 figure that Ms. Fluke is claiming the women at GT need for 3 years of birth control. The only way I can come up with that figure is through multiple abortions.

So, what is Ms Fluke’s ultimate motive in attending GT, trying to change their birth control policy and then pushing to give testimony before the subcommittee? I believe the answer is that she, and her like-minded cohorts, want to force the Catholic Church to pay for abortions. And they want to do this in a very public way.

That’s why they wanted her testimony to be on TV. They want to publically demonstrate the ultimate triumph of the State over the Church by forcing the Church to pay for the shedding innocent blood, the killing unborn children. They want the Church to have blood on their hands. They want to show Catholics all over the world that the STATE is the SUPREME POWER and that THEY control the STATE.

Margaret Sanger, the founder of Planned Parenthood, once said: “It should be made illegal for any religious group to prohibit dissemination of birth control – even among its own members.” There are many Sanger disciples with us today and they are all on the same power and ego trip.

So, I believe Ms Fluke is not trying to play the “whore” or the “slut” at all. She is trying to play God.

Do you think that Rush really sleeps on a sleep number mattress? I slept on one in a hotel and I thought that it felt like sleeping on an inflatable air mattress. I was not impressed.

Whoever is compiling this list is a deep cover DU Rat, an incompetent, an Obama operative, a Soros operative or all of the above.
Wonder what he'll do when he gets to 18,000.

IS he also keeping track of new advertisers coming on board nationwide?
