Rush Limbaugh Admits StopRush is Kicking His Ass

&eature=player_detailpage#t=0s

On Tuesday's show, Rush Limbaugh acknowledged that the "sniveling jerks" of the StopRush movement have driven his advertising possibilities into the ground:

*

"When you look at a ... show that is by far number 1, and they're still running penile enhancement ads, what's happening is that mainstream media buyers are sending money elsewhere, trying to harm them. Well, penile, take your pick,the Ronco Veg-o-matic, you know--while McDonald's and Coke and Meineke are everywhere else.

These are things we had to overcome on this pro--we have to fight that battle every day here anyway. Cause these little sniveling jerks are out there trying to scare advertisers, still goes on."

As usual, Limbaugh has some of his facts confused. The "little sniveling jerks" he refers to would be the StopRush movement, groups like the Flush Rush Facebook community.

But these groups aren't "trying to scare advertisers," they're simply contacting advertisers and quoting Rush Limbaugh verbatim to be sure the sponsor is aware of what they're being associated with.

Many of them aren't aware, and they often choose to pull their ads off the show.

2638 have requested their ads not air on the Rush Limbaugh Show as of today.

But the reason these organizations pull their ads off the show isn't because of StopRush volunteers, it's because of the offensive content that comes out of Limbaugh's mouth--including regular homophobic rants, racial stereotypes, poor bashing, and even last week's incredibly insensitive jokes about exploding pressure cookers, just one day after 3 people were brutally murdered in Boston. Respectable organizations want nothing to do with that kind of thing.

Limbaugh alone is responsible for his advertiser exodus--nobody else.

As Limbaugh's large, well known advertisers have headed for the door, ad rates that Limbaugh used to call "confiscatory" have dropped to all time lows.

Advertisers like Sony, Hallmark, Cadillac, and Office Depot have been replaced by a ragtag bunch including a suspected pyramid scheme, shady identity protection software, and even a church led by a murdering pastor. Oh, and the "penile enhancements."
One of Limbaugh's faithful advertisers is the National Male Medical Clinic, one of quite a few similar businesses peddling cures to men with limp noodles.

A warning to anyone who clicks on the youtube link in the second tweet--it's a graphic video of "Mr. S" injecting erectile dysfunction medication directly into his penis--because that's how far El Rushbo has sunk. He's now plugging intrapenous drug use.

1. How fitting that so many of Pig Boy's advertisers are dick doctors

I'm sure a large chunk of his audience have insecurities in that department.

That scam artists are now advertising with the bloviating one is no surprise- I'm sure if there's any research on the subject it will indicate that Piggy's audience is a very fertile field for scammers...

3. It's free market capitalism at work!

How does it feel to get plowed under in the name of profit? I predict a very short life after enforced retirement and ensuing depression spiral and epic drug binge. That man's soul must be the very definition of hell.

4. good move Rush complain about companies that buy ad time



BTW Rush I know you read DU. Sucks to be you doesn't it? All the money and the
fancy lifestyle still can't buy you peace of mind. You just had to go after Ms. Fluke didn't
you?

5. A fitting demise

for the scumbucket. I'd still like to see the lid blown off his solo vacation trips to the Dominican Republic, as well known as Sri Lanka for pedophile tourism.

7. Why do so many Rush viewers need to be bombarded with Cialis Ads?

Are they all old; fat diabetic and impotent?
