Most of them have only "suspended" their advertising.

They'll be back. His audience is too big.

I think its funny how republican politicians are scared to say anything.
Rush the bully is now poor innocent victim and people like Palin want to march like civil rights activist for him.

I love that hes comparing the lost of a few advertisers to that of a few missing fries in a Super Sized Meal. "You dont even notice."

That's in dispute. His audience may not be as big as he says it is. We already found out his ratings were worse than we thought they were when they changed the system of ratings.

I'm just enjoying the absolutely delicious irony, that all this is happening because of a...F(f)luke!

Here's what bothers ME:

Prince died of an overdose of the drug Fentanyl. Of which, it is very highly fucking likely that he never even knew he'd taken.

Most of the statements I read from the advertisers used the word "suspend". Admittedly, that was only 3 or 4, but at the time, that was most of them.

Yeah, it's not the 20 million he says. I read once where that 20 million number is the number of times he's listened to over the course of a week. But that's not 20 million different listeners.

It's probably 2 or 3 million people that tune in 2 or 3 times a day over the course of a week, or something like that.

Still, that's a lot of people but it's nowhere near enough to make much of a difference at the polls. If Limbaugh really had 20 million dedicated, voting listeners, his group would almost never lose an election.

I keep waiting for someone to run the TV clip of Rush Limbaugh calling a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton the new White House dog.
