Rush Limbaugh

More Sponsors Running for Hills

After 'Slut' Statement

3/5/2012 11:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Rush Limbaugh is STILL hemorrhaging advertiser
Rush Limbaugh is STILL hemorrhaging advertisers -- several days after calling a Georgetown student a "slut" for asking the University for free birth control ... bringing his grand total to NINE lost sponsors.

Two sponsors -- Tax Resolution and AOL -- pulled their ads from his radio show today, following the mass exodus of advertisers like ProFlowers, LegalZoom and Citrix Systems over the weekend.

As for the other advertisers that have jumped ship -- bedding companies Sleep Train and Sleep Number, plus Quicken Loans and the Cleveland Cavaliers basketball team.

Rush made the "slut" comment on the airwaves last week -- also calling student Sandra Fluke a "prostitute," after the Georgetown Law student testified before the House of Representatives on why birth control should be made freely available.

Rush offered a weak apology on Saturday -- claiming, "For over 20 years, I have illustrated the absurd with absurdity, three hours a day, five days a week. In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke."

So far, looks like his advertisers aren't buying it.

The Left are such hypocrites. It's okay for those vicious snaggle toothed old hippie men to call conservative women sluts.

Rush has lost 9 sponsors already. He'll stay on the air unless Clear Channel gets the message.

This woman, Sandra Fluke, a third year law student at Georgetown University, believes that all of us should pay for her sexual activities. Ms. Fluke actually said that to Congress: 'I attend a Jesuit law school that does not provide contraceptive coverage in its student health plan. Without insurance coverage, contraception can cost a woman over $3,000 during law school. For a lot of students who, like me, are on public interest scholarships, that's practically an entire summer's salary.' So let me get this straight - Ms. Fluke, you want me to give you my hard earned money so you can have sex?

Birth control is freely available at any clinic or Planned Parenthood. She has no business asking taxpayers to fund her sexual habits. I am sick of people who think they deserve entitlements. Buy your own stinkin' birth control.

Good, I hope Rush is finally forced off the air. For some reason he's been able to con many of the ignorant masses with his hypocrisy. Here he was, hooked on "Hillbilly Heroin," bankrupt and divorced how many times? What a good, Christian republican he is. He has the audacity to call this woman a "slut" and "prostitute"? I hope she sues him for slander!

What a Joke... Democrats are always pulling crap like this and no one pays attention.. Bill Maher and the nasty stuff he said about Sarah Palin and her Children.. The rush of people who came out after Joe the Plumber in the election year... Really.. get your heads out of your butts... Rush did nothing wrong... he has apologized which is more than you can say for those lefty democrats...

I'm going to find out who those sponsors are and make a note to not give them any of my business. They are so weak. Almost every criticism I've heard is from someone who is not quoting Rush properly and just trying to make political hay or look sensitive. It's a crock. Fluke and her "friends" should open a book and quit having so much sex that they can't afford to have instead of expecting others to pay for their birth control. I can't believe we're even discussing this.
