Rush Away

I signed the petition on Credo boycotting Rush the Hut's advertisers.  HERE is the link if you want to do that, too.  LegalZoom posted on Facebook that they have dropped their advertising from his show.  I'm getting in touch with some directly that I do business with and have credit cards for (Sears) to let them know. Theirs includes K-Mart, Lands End, and more.  Excerpt:
Enough is enough.  It is time for Rush Limbaugh's sponsors to stop supporting his hate speech through their advertising dollars.
Sign the petition today, and send them a message.  And make sure to spread the word.  "Share" this on Facebook, and use the hashtag "#BoycottRush" on Twitter.
Here is a list of the companies we believe to be Rush's advertisers. (Note, things are happening very quickly, so we cannot guarantee right now that these are all current advertisers). We will update these as they react to the "Boycott Rush" movement, or confirm they are no longer supporting him.
  • AutoZone (UPDATE: They appear to have dropped Rush!)
  • Carbonite
  • Century21
  • Citrix
  • Dominos (Update: Dominos says it is NOT an advertiser with Rush)
  • eHarmony (UPDATE: eHarmony says it is NOT an advertiser with Rush)
  • LegalZoom
  • LendingTree
  • LifeLock
  • Oreck
  • ProFlowers
  • Sears
  • Sleep Train: (UPDATE: Victory! They have pulled their ads! -- source)
  • Sleep Number: (UPDATE: Victory! They have pulled their ads! -- source) 
  • Quicken Loans (UPDATE: Appears to be a victory here too, as they are reportedly pulling ads as well!)
  • TaxResolution
(Again, the caveat -- this is the list of advertisers we have compiled from multiple sources, and while we strive to be accurate, we cannot guarantee that every one of them is correct.  We will update asap if we discover errors or changes)
I mean, did you hear what he said?

Unfortunately the increased attention plays into his game plan - which is why he repeated it the next day.

I don't patronize any of those businesses... most I have never even heard of. Hence the problem- his advertisers don't make a lot of products used by the people he insults... until now, when, in my opinion, he has insulted all women and most men!

Good point unfortunately, Froggy, and depressing.

Guess we know why he thinks women take a pill every time they have sex since that's the way it is with Viagra.
