    The intense campaign to cut advertising to “The Rush Limbaugh Show” took another turn Thursday when one of the first companies to pull its ads reportedly asked to return to the radio show -- only to be told by Team Limbaugh that the conservative host no longer would give his endorsement. A Limbaugh spokesman said that California mattress company Sleep Train asked to restart a “voiced endorsement” from Limbaugh that it had publicly cut off last week.

    But they were feeling "principled" last week. What happened to this week???

    What a bunch of idiots! I hope Rush refuses the rest of them too. Next year, several of them will be filing for bankruptcy anyway.

    I'll laugh my ass right off when Carbonite does, as they would be no where without Rush

    Do these companies actually think that Liberals are the ones buying their stuff? Heh. Idiots.

    Some of those...Thompson Creek and Bethesda Dentristy are local WMAL advertisers...they aren't national sponsors...there are others on there that I've never heard of that I'd be willing to bet are locals too...so while the list might look long and at first glance damaging to Clear Channel/Rush...it's hurting the local stations more.

    And knowing sales reps like I do...they bonused the advertisers some extra spots and moved them to other shows like Hannity Levin or Chris Corr.

    Wow. I was planning on boycotting these companies but with the exception of JC Penney I've never done business with any of those. Oh, didn't see Pro Flowers but I've only used them once and now never again.
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Am I the only one surprised that Girl Scouts ever advertised on Rush's show?

    I don't see Cheetos, Twinkies, or Acapulco Gold on there. No impact to liberals!
