Rush Limbaugh Loses Sponsors Then Decides to Apologize to Sandra Fluke

Two bedding companies on Friday dropped their sponsorship of Rush Limbaugh’s radio program in reaction to the sexist comments the host has hurled at a  college student and contraceptives coverage. Two more advertisers followed suit a few hours later.

Sleep Train and Select Comfort issued statements announcing that they would no longer associate themselves with Limbaugh, who called Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student Republicans blocked from testifying about birth control, a “slut” and a “prostitute” on Wednesday. He went further on Thursday, saying that if women wanted contraceptives paid for by government insurance, they should post on the internet films of themselves having sex.

Obviously the loss of revenue has gotten Rush’s attention.  He’s since apologized to Sandra Fluke, not because he still doesn’t believe what he said is true, it’s just what adults do when it’s going to cost them money in their wallet!
