    He has endorsed them for 25 years but doesn't want their business anymore.:lol: It must be good to be the King of Talk Radio.

    I can't take credit for this comment, but it's perfect.

    Here's the deal.

    Limbaugh Rejects Sleep Train After it Requests to be Advertiser Again

    Rush Limbaugh has rejected an advertiser’s apparent attempt to reunite with his show after the company initially dropped its ads from the program following his remarks about contraception advocate Sandra Fluke.

    The company, Sleep Train, calls itself “the No. 1 Bedding Specialist on the West Coast, and most recognized mattress retailer in the region.”

    In an email to Sleep Train President Dale Carlsen (obtained by The Blaze), a representative of the show says that Limbaugh personally considered the company’s request, but denied it considering its public comments following the controversy.

    “Thank you for your requests last week and this week to restart your voiced endorsement in local markets of The Rush Limbaugh Show,” the email begins. “Rush received your requests personally.”

    “Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh’s character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the future.

    “Rush appreciates your long friendship and your past support, and we wish you good luck in the future.”

    The whole time this crazy frenzy of "holier than thou" shit was going on,and advertisers were pulling their ads or in this case putting them on hold, I kept thinking how stupid it was because Rush is and has been for years #1 with 15 to 20 million listeners a week.

    That's an unreal market.

    His endorsement is gold. I agree wholeheartedly with the posters comment that I put up.

    Sleep Train is Fluked.

    And Sandra has now entered "the Lewinsky world of language where a last name becomes a non flattering verb".

    :lol:

    AOL had the good sense not to pull their advertising but just suspend it for a short period of time.
