It seems that brain-dead public posturing actually does have a price:

Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke.

The company, Sleep Train, calls itself “the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.”

In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy.

“Thank you for your requests last week and this week to restart your voiced endorsement in local markets of The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the email begins. “Rush received your requests personally.”

“Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh’s character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the future.

“Rush appreciates your long friendship and your past support, and we wish you good luck in the future.”

“Heh,” as Glenn Reynolds might say.

I’m sorry, I can’t make a coherent comment on this, as I am too busy being engaged in juvenile giggling about the “most recognized mattress retailer in the region”.

I can’t help but picture one of those marketing survey types with a clipboard that stops people in the street and asks them questions, showing a range of furniture store logos to people and getting the answer “Aw, yeah, that’s Sleep Train. Recognise them anywhere, so I would.” “Excellent! And why is that, Mr. Smith?” “Well, says it right there, dunnit: Sleep Train”. “Ah, yes, thank you for your time.”

I had hoped for this. Every sponsor that tries to come back should be politely but firmly refused. He was wrong to use that language, and it didn’t convey the right point anyway, but he apologized and the libnuts were too eat up with hate to accept it.

It will be interesting to see whether Carbonite eventually comes back. They are major advertisers on several conservative talk shows, and even more major contributors to liberal causes.

What’s the over/under that the next meme will be “Rush is destroying businesses!” if one of these companies goes under?

I’m sick of the entire thing, really. What Limbaugh said was dumb — especially since there are volumes on Sandra Fluke worthy of intelligent criticism. But it’s all just one big distraction from the in-the-toilet economy.

You never know with Rush. It may have been a mistake, or it may have been a deliberate excursion, although not too deep, into offensive language in order to set up the contrast between what conservatives say about their opponents and what liberals say. Note that even Pres. Obama was asked at his press conference if he would criticize what Bill Maher, a million-dollar contributor to his super PAC, said about Sarah Palin (unprintable). Perhaps this is Rush’s tribute to Andrew Breitbart. Show the world what hypocrites the leftist media are.

The Pilgrim
March 9, 2012

Actually, I think all sides here were in the right.
Rush has a right to say what he did, the sponsor has the right to pull their money if they feel the sponsee reflects negatively on them, and of course Rush has the right to decide who his sponsors are.

Everybody wins, it’s the way it’s supposed to work.

Katherine
March 9, 2012

Pilgrim, you are correct about the sponsor’s right to pull its advertising, and Rush’s right to decline to renew their relationship. As to Rush’s original comments, “slut” is a bit fuzzy, but “prostitute” is a clear term. If Ms. Fluke was not, or a court might find that she was not, a “public figure,” then Rush might have been open to a slander suit (assuming as I do that she does not in fact sell her services). In that case, his written apology over the weekend and his spoken apology on-air, in the same venue in which he made the comment, were wise moves. She, of course, has a right to choose her law school in order to protest its policies, which she did (she says so), and a right to try to force her law school to violate its faith commitment, but not a right to be respected for doing these things.

Katherine
March 9, 2012

Rush apologized for remarks which were inappropriate. It wasn’t a “sorry anyone was offended” non-apology, either. It was a clear and unequivocal apology. Do you accept apologies, John? Note that when Rush stepped over the line he apologized. He is an entertainer. The many, many left-wing entertainers who have made multiple offensive comments about conservative women (and men) for years do not apologize. Left-wing “news” people have done the same. Advertisers are not leaving NBC for the many offensive remarks made by their “news” and commentary presenters. Advertisers have not punished CNN (Anderson Cooper) and several other news organizations for the repeated use of the offensive term “teabagger.” I think it is the left which has no moral compass.

John
March 9, 2012

Now you try the false equivalency trick. It won’t wash. Rush has a long history of foul and nasty comments. His apologies are always mealy mouthed.
That you chose to defend him by saying others are bad as he is, is no defense.

“False equivalence?” Wouldn’t go there if I were you, John. When the leader of the free world refuses to return a political donation from a “comedian” who has said far worse things about conservative women than Rush Limbaugh said about Fluke and has said them far more often, to the complete(and let’s be honest; amused) silence of the media, then the fake outrage at Limbaugh’s comments, for that’s exactly what it is, is far more offensive than anything he said. Because it’s a lie.

Hey, the supreme court said that the 2nd Amendment said that people had a right to arms, so I want a federal mandate that someone buys me a gun, every couple of months. How are starving students to afford M1A’s that cost over a thousand dollars apiece? And even an entry level Kimber 1911 runs $750 and up. My urge to own as many quality American made firearms could easily run to $3,000 a year. Somebody out there better start buying them for me. And free ammo ought to be in a big dish on the reception desk of all federal offices. Not cheap stuff either, polymer tips, hollow points, that sort of thing. All the gun haters shut up, can I help it if God made this way?

Rush doesn’t often make foul comments. He does often make comments you don’t agree with, John, but that’s not the same as “foul.” For the most part children can listen and not hear bad words. Nor was his apology “mealy-mouthed.” You must not have read it, nor read the transcript of his on-air apology.

Katherine
March 9, 2012

Nor did I say that it was okay because the left does it too, and worse. I do think the “slut and prostitute” comment was over the line. He knows it, and apologized. He apologized (a) because he knows it was over the line and (b) because, unlike the audience of leftist entertainers, his audience doesn’t like that kind of thing being said unless it’s true.

Smurf Breath
March 9, 2012

John, as usual you show yourself to be a complete hypocrite and idiot.

If the Left has lowered the level of discourse to the point that throwing out insults is acceptable, then on what basis do you condemn Rush?

If on the other hand you agree such discourse is immoral, doesn’t Rush fare better than braying idiots like Olbermann who throw around similar insults and have never apologized?

You invent a term “false equivalency trick”. I don’t know what that means, and I’ll bet you are too stupid to even know what you are talking about.

Please define that if you can. But the problem is that people like you are being hypocritical. You spew out silly vile terms as if you had the mentality of Beavis and Butthead (which I suspect you do), but when Rush uses strong words which are defensible, you soil your pants with rage and cannot offer one single reason why he is wrong, any more than you can justify the rantings of braying idiots like Stewart and Olbermann.

“Slut”; “prostitute” – pffft. Who cares? Are we to spend hours laboriously poring over dictionaries and slang lexicons to establish the precise category of some upstart drab who’s thrusting her pubes in our face? As Doctor Johnson said, “There is no settling the point of precedency between a louse and a flea.” I’m sorry Rush apologized; predictably, it had absolutely no effect on the ginned-up “controversy”. My rule is never to apologize to liberals because they’re not people you apologize to.

It is a con. They pretend to have the moral high ground when they are rightly accused of something, but conveniently forget about the times when they use inflammatory, slanderous rhetoric. Michelle Malkin has documented how they have done this in the past.
Sadly, John can’t even defend his position. His silence is deafening. John, if you can’t even do that, doesn’t that tell you that perhaps you should overcome your predispositions and rethink your position?

Funny thing with Rush, when the media can’t beat him, he’s a has-been entertainer who will escape media attention for years at a time. When they think they’ve got the goods on him, he is the spokesman of the conservative movement, which hangs on his every word. Well, which is it?

Good for Rush! He has the right to refuse to renew a relationship. I think he was wrong for most of the reasons that people have pointed out.

Interestingly enough, I have encountered the same double-standard amongst some of my FaceBook “friends.” They demand citations of what Maher said, accuse me of drawing an equivillance, etc., etc. The usual brain dead Liberal reaction when confronted with the double-standard. One Kool Aid drinker claimed that Maher’s remarks about Palin were OK because he is a commedian. Gee I never knew calling a woman the C-word was now considered high comedy.

More a caricature of his position than a thoughtful defender of it. To be frank, I’d prefer a thoughtful defender.

I don’t really care about which musicians/actors/directors endorse which candidates. Obama’s got a lot of endorsements from a lot of “entertainment” people who’ve said a lot of outrageous or foul things. He’s really not responsible for everyone who endorses him. Neither are Republicans. I do think Obama ought to call on his supporters to return Bill Maher’s money, given Obama’s stepping into the LImbaugh controversy as he did. He’d have been smarter to stay out of it; instead, he waded in and dragged his daughters in as well.

John believes in the “If I repeat it enough, it is true” and the “When losing, change the subject.”

I heard Limbaugh’s apology and it was an apology. He didn’t blame anyone else for what he said. He didn’t accuse Fluke of anything. He just said he was wrong for what he said. Sounds like an apology to me.

And no, Maher’s comment was not mild.

Floridian
March 9, 2012

If Ms. Fluke has been involved in the ‘DC Slutwalk’ and any of the other Slutwalks in other cities, does that make her a slut?

In further developments, the great defender of female virtue, Gloria Allred is threatening Rush with a violation of a Florida law, which makes it a misdemeanor, with respect to a woman, to “falsely and maliciously impute to her a want of chastity.”

Should be an interesting case, if Ms. Fluke decides to take her up on it. However, she will have to prove she is chaste*, and has never accepted payment of any kind for her sexual favors.

*If there is a legal definition of chaste these days.

In other FL news – our stupid legislature has opened the door to Sharia law. I’m so angry. This is outrageous. Outrageous.

JOHN –

HERE is a very cleaned up version of leftists in action attacking conservative women.

The original Sarah Palin movie, The Undefeated, had to be cut to exclude the leftist vile language used by the left to attack and smear her during the 2008 campaign in order to be shown in theaters.

Leftist entertainers, Maher, Louis CK, the late night hosts are far, far more insulting, low-down and threatening than Rush was. Remember what that creepy band-leader did to Michele Bachmann?

Compare the Tea Party to OWS and you will see the difference between leftists and conservatives.

We’ve heard and experienced the contempt, intolerance and hatred. Some conservatives have actually been spit on by the leftist delegates at the national Episcopal General Convention.

My good man. an M1A is not the answer, and while Kimber makes an excellent 1911, those models are frequently not readily concealable. Think more along the lines of a semi-auto Barrett M82 .50cal (preferably suppressed) and a more concealable SIG SAUER P250® Compact or P226 X-Five™ (the former particularly if you have a requirement for .45ACP (9rds.) rather than .40S&W or .357SIG.

After all, if it is a right, then you should have that which best fulfills the requirements, right?

Bill Mayer used the word twat in an offhand remark about Sarah Palin. Twat, is a mild expletive or a variation of twit. I think of it as combining both meanings- vulgar but not character asassination.
Rush, on the other hand was out to destroy the character of Ms Fluke and he carried on that character attack for several more days. He apologised for using wrong words but does not say what words he should have used.
Fuinseoig. Youtube ted nugent and his rant about President Obama and Hillary Clinton. Look up ‘obscene’ in the dictionary and Ted Nugent’s picture is there.

Katherine
March 9, 2012

I don’t use the word, John. I was told that it is another word for something else Maher called Palin, which was “c*nt.” Neither is a mild expletive. These are grossly offensive references to female anatomy.

On Ms. Fluke, she is a political activist who admits to applying to Georgetown Law specifically so she could challenge its health insurance provisions. She wants to use contraceptive pills and she wants somebody else to pay for it, plain and simple. She doesn’t offer any rationale other than that she wants it, and it costs more than she wants to pay. What’s admirable about that?

Katherine
March 9, 2012

Yes, in fact, John, look it up in a dictionary. I just did. Maher knew what it meant, since he used the other one as well. Nice guy you’re defending; remember, he hasn’t apologized.

Homo sapiens as a species procreate through life-long unions of one man and one woman, while liberals reproduce by conversion to homosexuality, abortion, and public transit.

Katherine
March 10, 2012

So, “tw*t” was okay on HBO, although it means the same thing as “c*nt,” which he used in his stand-up routine, according to John. And it’s okay with John if a stand-up comedian who calls a Governor and Vice Presidential candidate demeaning and obscene names is a major donor to President Obama’s re-election campaign. But using an inappropriate analogy (for which he has apologized) for a political activist student who wants to have sex and use the Pill but wants someone else to pay for it is beyond the pale.

John
March 10, 2012

So Katherine, you condone what Rush said about Ms Fluke because she may be activist of some kind and may or may not have sex? Had you ever heard of her before Rush attacked her?
Can you call Sarah palin a Governor, when she quit half way through her term of office?
Look, I do not condone bad behavior from any source. I think Mayer’s comments are abhorrent.

Christopher Johnson
March 10, 2012

Do you know why Sarah Palin quit, John? Sarah Palin quit because slimebags from the Democratic Party, terrified that she might actually amount to something, filed false “ethics” charge after false “ethics” charge against her, knowing full well that Alaska law mandated that each of these false charges had to be investigated, costing both Ms. Palin’s family and the State of Alaska hundreds of thousands of dollars per case?

It gets down to this, John. Show me where you expressed any outrage at all about the way Bill Maher and other “comedians” have described Sarah Palin, Michelle Bachmann and other conservative women and I’ll listen to your arguments about Rush Limbaugh. Otherwise STFU, as the kids these days say out there on the Internet.

Katherine
March 11, 2012

John’s last comment calls Maher’s comments “abhorrent,” the first outright condemnation of them I’ve seen from him. He’s making progress. Obviously he (perhaps deliberately) missed my comment early in this thread to the effect that I thought Limbaugh’s terminology was inappropriate and that I thought his apology was warranted. We do not want to descend to the level of our opposition.

Yes, I had heard of her before Limbaugh’s comments. I read current events reporting. She was a political activist on her undergraduate campus and went to Georgetown to fight their Catholic policies.

Ditto to what Chris said about the way Palin was and is treated. Comments from leftists during the 2008 campaign were vile; comments about conservative women have continued to be vile from many of the same entertainers and news and opinion sources leftists often admire.

Your Honor other people say bad things and get away with it and also the devil made me do it. That summarises Rush’s defence and I’m told to STFU.

Now this is bizarre. In September 2010 both Andrea Mitchell and Brian Williams of NBC News were on the comedy show 30 Rock. Mitchell called a fictional character a “slut” and she and Williams, in their comedy roles, celebrated the remark. The clip was rerun on MSNBC. So apparently NBC newspeople do not consider this an especially insulting term, although Mitchell, when talking about the Limbaugh incident, said she couldn’t say the word on the air. It would seem the word is only bad depending upon whether one agrees with the target.

LaVallette,

I tried issuing that warning quite a ways back in this thread – in vain, apparently.

As a rule of thumb, I’d say that after two failures to reply to the issues and instead play change-the-topic or hurl repeated ad hominems and baseless statements, any given commenter needs to be ignored. After all, you can’t have a conversation with either a brick wall or someone with a 10,000 watt megaphone.

Of course, one can always play the “Troll Drinking Game” – drink a shot for each ad hominem, each question unanswered, each repitition of a non-factual (unsupported) statement, etc. This comment thread would rapidly lead to alcohol induced coma, I fear…….
