Just a note to any potential advertisers who are interested in calling Premiere Radio Netwoks to fill in some of the newly available empty commercial time for Rush Limbaugh's syndicated radio show. Just know that if and when you ever decide to no longer sponsor his show, he'll trash you over the air for leaving.
RUSH: The left, folks -- the media -- are giddy that some advertisers have said they're leaving the program. And I'm sorry to see 'em go. They have profited handsomely from you. These advertisers who have split the scene have done very well due to their access to you, my audience, from this program. To offer their products and services to you through this venue is the best opportunity that they have ever had to advertise their wares. Now they've chosen to deny themselves that access, and that's a business decision, and it's theirs alone to make.
They've decided they don't want you or your business anymore...
"... Advertising's a business decision. It's not a social one. Only the leftists try to use extortion, pressure, threats to silence opposing voices. We don't do that. Never, ever, do any of us on our side of the aisle try to suppress the speech or the voices of those with whom we disagree, and we never will. So, as you've always done, you make your own business decisions about the products and services you buy.
A bit about Rush. He has all the symptoms of Narcissistic personality disorder. Nothing he says or does can be wrong. If anything is ever perceived by others as being wrong, then it will be their fault for taking it the wrong way. If coerced he may apologize, but it will be an insincere tactical retreat intended only to placate critics, not to admit to any flaw or weakness. One can't be truly sorry for something without thinking that a mistake was made, but Rush is not capable of mistakes so any apology is a fake one. Rush will continue to surround himself with loyal subjects only and will lash out at any/all detractors. As that list grows so will his anger and resentment. Any attempt at self-depricating humor or humility is just thinly disguised fishing for compliments and attempts to feed his super-sized ego.
For perspective here are some samples of Rush Speak that got him into a hot water with the advertisers to his show. The transcripts are still up at his website.. RushLimbaugh.com.
Now, the definition of a "misogynist" is a man who hates women almost as much as women hate women. That's what a misogynist is. Did you know that, Snerdley? A misogynist is a guy who hates women almost as much as women hate women, and I do not hate women. Why should gay people have to pay taxes to supply birth control for straight people, for the breeders? Why should they? Where's the social justice in that?
That’s a thousand dollars a year of sex -- and, she wants us to pay for it." Now, what does that make her? She wants us to buy her sex. She wants us to pay for her sex, and she went to a congressional committee to close the sale.
It's the right place to do that. Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!
And what about these deadbeat boyfriends or random hookups that these babes are encountering here, having sex with nearly three times a day? While in law school.
RUSH: Folks, if you ask 'em -- if you ask 'em -- the Washington, DC, Department of Health will send you free condoms and lube. The DC Department of Health free condoms and lube if you just ask 'em for it! So, Ms. Fluke and the rest of you feminazis, here's the deal: If we are going to pay for your contraceptives and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I'll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch.
Well, what did I say? I said, "If we're paying for this, it makes these women sluts, prostitutes." And what else could it be? If we are buying it..
So who was out of line? Rush for saying these things or his ex-advertisers for taking offense at them?
