    I feel it is. The sponsors WANT to sell. If they felt Limbaugh represents their corporate policy they would stick with him. But Rush messed up. He alienated those companies. Most will come back after its all calmed down.

    I commented because you quoted me in your posts. If you didn't want me to comment on your posts then you shouldn't have quoted mine. Of course, it wouldn't be the first time you wasted a post on the wrong guy now, would it?

    I made no statement on the entertainment value of the words used - but obviously someone thought they were entertaining, if no one else then the person who uttered them.

    Sponsors, like all businesses, do what they do for money. I don't know of anything more natural in America than that.

    Really? you think this is all just organic eh....I was driving home last saturday and tuned in to MediaMatters radio, and they were talking to Kelly Rivas of stoprush.org here is a sample of her vitriol against Limbaugh, and a highlight of what is really happening behind these sponsors actions....

    Please let me know if you have any contact information for the companies that have pulled their sponsorships. We have some really great sponsorship opportunities for them to take their actions one step further by placing their money where their hearts are.

    They have the opportunity to be nationally recognized business-leaders, as they demonstrate American companies DO NOT support a War on Women and in fact - help hold accountable those involved in the mistreatment of women....

    This is disgusting...It is the furthest thing from an organic move on the part of advertisers just pulling their ads on their own, and more about thug like activists working behind the scenes to stifle speech they deem to disagree with. Real freedom eh....?

    Looks like everybody is making money except Rush but isn't that what capitalism is all about? Some win, others lose? Couldn't be more natural in America, it's just that this time you're on the side losing money. Life's a bitch, isn't it?

    Rush Limbaugh isnt making money??

    But, in any case, is this the kind of war against free speech America really wants? Who will be next?

    "War against free speech"? LOL!

    Didn't Nixon start that "War on xxxx" policy with the War on Drugs FORTY years ago? Everything is a war now and it's loosing it's sensationalism. Conservatives need to get a new line - "war on" has turned into just plain "worn".

    No, Grant referring to the Democratic Party as the Demo****s makes him a far right extremist. That and most of the rest of his political posts.

    Back to Nixon now? What happened to blaming it all on Bush?

    When there are web sites (not available in Nixon's time) devoted to silencing one person, then it's a war. Are you familiar with the term "war of words", by the way? This goes beyond that.

    It just another example of the Leftists being able to dish it out but use their own tactics on them and they start crying the blues.
    Doesn't annoy me at all, which you would know if you'd read any of my other comments on Maher. I find Maher and Limbaugh to be two sides of the same coin. I dislike them both and find their language disgusting. How about you, Grant?

    Ready to bite the bullet and call out the pill junkie Limbo? Or are you still fixated on the 'Demo****s'?

    All i did was remove the "crat" part of the word. Your imagination did the rest.

    Did you call Maher a "far right extremist" (whatever that means to you!) when he use genuine foul language against women and children? I doubt it. Again, as noted, the left can dish it out but they can't take it.
