Please to be clearing up confusion now thank you.

I am confused, so I turn to you, o livejournal, to help me.

Why are advertisers pulling their ads from Rush Limbaugh's show?

Specifically, why were any advertisers who cared even a little bit if he had any shreds of humanity left still advertising on Rush Limbaugh's show in the first place?

Of course it was horrible of him to call that poor woman a slut for daring to have a friend with such poor judgment as to get ovarian cysts and possibly even to choose to use birth control herself. He is a terrible human being who uses his radio show for terrible things. But here is where I get confused: what year is this? I know it's disorienting, what with Newt Gingrich running for president and all, but seriously, what year is this? In what universe might someone look up and say, "Wait! Rush Limbaugh! Not a contributor to civil discourse after all? Not someone we wish to associate our product with? Well, I never! Why didn't someone tell me? I thought he read the weather."

("Slutty feminazi showers that hate white people are brewing over the Northeast this weekend, probably to ruin capitalism....")

Sleep Number? Sears? Where have you been for the entirety of my adult life and incidentally much of my childhood? Rush Limbaugh has been this bad for quite some time now. Yes. This bad. Really exactly this bad. Why is now the time to notice? I guess better late than never, but...this late? Really? And you want a cookie? It's going to be one of the floor cookies the dog turned her nose up at, guys, because the rest of us? The ones with at least one neuron firing? Were well aware.
