I haven’t read the article yet, but there’s one point in all of this every article misses most of Limbaugh’s losses came after he tried to organize a boycott against the few companies that dropped him in the first few days of screaming “slut” 1000 times a day.

It may be that what killed him and Clear Channel wasn’t just him alienating every woman in the country (and every non-misogynist), what lost them the advertisers was his attempt to hold advertisers hostage to blackmail.

He tried to bully the advertising market, and it turns out he wasn’t as all-powerful as his ego.

Why didn’t he lose advertisers after he was busted with Viagra that didn’t belong to him? Didn’t that make him a slut?

They stuck with him when he dodged a narcotics trafficking charge by putting himself into a celebrity rehab program, so I imagine the Viagra was just small potatoes in comparison.

Funny, seems like when the right wing calls for a boycott it’s “The free market in action”, but when liberals do it then “they hate Capitalists, they are trying to stifle opinions they don’t believe in”.

Couldn’t make me happier than to finally see them start to collect the fruits of their poisoned tree.

“The Rush Limbaugh Show” is the company’s most valuable program, and losing it could be devastating.

As rarely as epic assholes ever get their comeuppance, I’m going to cross my fingers.
