    Limbaugh sponsor Carbonite has decided to pull its ads from The Rush Limbaugh Show, despite Limbaugh's earlier apology. Carbonite CEO David Friend wrote the following on the official Carbonite blog: "Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show."

    the remaining sponsor sucks, just not very well.

    [h=1]A Statement from Rush[/h] March 03, 2012 For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.
    I think it is absolutely absurd that during these very serious political times, we are discussing personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress. I personally do not agree that American citizens should pay for these social activities. What happened to personal responsibility and accountability? Where do we draw the line? If this is accepted as the norm, what will follow? Will we be debating if taxpayers should pay for new sneakers for all students that are interested in running to keep fit?In my monologue, I posited that it is not our business whatsoever to know what is going on in anyone's bedroom nor do I think it is a topic that should reach a Presidential level.
    My choice of words was not the best, and in the attempt to be humorous, I created a national stir. I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices.

    I listened to Rush one time, found the guy a bore. Maybe the painkillers and viagra slowed him down. :dontknow: He sounds as fat as he looks with his out of breath DJ voice.

    I haven't heard an Oreck ad on his show in a couple of years and he only lost 3 sponsors. They'll be replaced before Monday. I bet he has a sponsor waiting list as long as The Great Wall of China!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :woohoo:

    You did not address my calling him a pussy.

    Just like you did not retell the reason for your "leaving" the Navy.

    Rush was going to the Dominican Republic, without a woman and with a shit load of Viagra. No teen boy prostitute's asshole would have been safe if he hadn't been caught.

    Romney won Washington State tonight. Both voters were unavailable for comment.
