I agree, with 7 already dropping and this making nationwide attention, I wouldn't be surprised if more drop.
Hopefully more do and get Limbaugh thrown off the air

Rush has the right to say whatever wants to say. He also has to take responsibility when what he sends offends people and causes sponsors to drop off. Same with Imus a few years ago.

When left-wing shows make offensive remarks, conservatives complain or quit watching. When right-wing shows make offensive remarks, Liberals boycott and pressure advertisers to drop the show.

Left-wing speech should be tolerated. Right-wing speech should be silenced:
Signing petitions to silence conservative radio

Number 7! Advertiser pulls out from backing Rush Limbaugh's show even after the "apology"... for derogatory comments about law student who testifed about health policies for women.

Due to complaints on Twitter and Facebook, ProFlowers pulled ads from the obnoxious show, stating these negative responses affected their marketing strategy.

Other six: Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems, Carbonite and Legal Zoom.

Complaints to the advertisers!
Info and list of some advertisers on topplebush.com as well as addresses to THANK THE ABOVE COMPANIES!
I will boycott the boy-cotters.

It is really too bad that people these days won't protest something important..... like, wars, bad economy, gas prices, out of control spending.... gee, are Americans stupid or what? Calling someone out because they want to wreck the first amendment is a bad thing... REALLY PEOPLE?!?!?

What a bunch of imbiciles in America these days

And that's why we're laughing at those who take this loud-mouthed, hypocritical tub of lard to heart as if he's some modern day oracle of enlightment.

Self-Righteousness?

Of Course!

Enlightenment?

HA HA HA HA!

Good One! Eh?
