    I think Sleep Train realized that it is a thunderously stupid mistake to pull or suspend ads from a show that gets over 20 million listeners a week. If anyone is going to boycott Sleep Train it would be loyal listeners angry over the fact that Sleep Train caved to a bunch of PC tards.The PC tards claiming to boycott the products don't even listen to Limbaugh and most likely do not even bother buying the products of Limbaugh's sponsors in the first place.This calling a "I want to mooch off others for my birth control" advocate a hoe is non issue. (which is a more accurate that simply referring her to a birth control advocate)These rabid anti-Limbaugh nuts are just trying to what ever they can to try to take him out.

    Limbaugh should replace every single sponsor who dropped or "suspended" ads with their major competitors and make them sign contracts with huge penalties for pulling or suspending ads.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    A lot of people make money off of Rush Limbaugh. If they didn't, he wouldn't have a show in the first place.

    what a flimsy excuse for a line in the sand.

    A person appearing before congress to impact change isn't significantly different then a person deciding to represent others in office to impact change.

    Even so, it appears that that's where the line in the sand is.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Meanwhile, Rush dominates radio airways like no one else. Second place is not even on the horizon.

    The sponsors will come back. There are far too many nutjobs in this country that listen to him (see this board) for the sponsors to stay away.

    It's embarrassing, yes, but true.
    Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.

Also, Americans all over the spectrum realize how full of crap politicians all over the spectrum really are, so vitriol thrown against them is fine.

    But this Georgetown student isn't seeking office nor is she a public figure. She's just an advocate wanting to speak out on this issue to the legislators who will be deciding this issue. So it comes across as a bitter mean dickhead picking on a young woman who just wanted to speak up.

    And if it's one thing Americans root for it's an underdog or someone who looks like they're being bullied, even if you disagree with their stance. And it comes across as if Rush was bullying this young woman.

    That's the difference if you ask me.
    Dude...shes a paid political operative with a history of activism within numerous political groups. The only difference is until now, she had been small potatoes politically.

    What an idiotic comparison. Public office and running for VP, while having a TV show (reality) on Fox News, and books vs a meeting with the Speaker of the House on TV.

    Yeah, close one. Are you being serious with that comparison?

    yes, I am . the minute she decided to petition congress, the significant difference between her, Rush, and any politician went away.

    individuals in a civilized society should not call other people sluts, drawing the line in the sand based on how often they work with the govenrment to enact change is a ridiculous set of criteria.
