"ProFlowers said Sunday on its Facebook page that it has suspended advertising on Limbaugh’s program because his comments about Georgetown University student Sandra Fluke 'went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company.' ”
And on the Sunday talk circuit conservative pundits were not bashful in criticizing Limbaugh's disgusting, anti-woman behavior:
The [Limbaugh/Fluke] controversy was a hot topic of political conversation on Sunday. Speaking on ABC News' "This Week," Wall Street Journal columnist Peggy Noonan called Limbaugh's remarks "crude, rude, even piggish," and "deeply destructive and unhelpful."
Panelist George Will went further, blasting Republicans for what he said was an inadequate response to the controversy. He said that House Speaker John Boehner's use of the word "inappropriate" to describe Limbaugh's language was more fitting for "using the salad fork for your entrée."
"And it was depressing because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh," Will alleged. "They want to bomb Iran, but they're afraid of Rush Limbaugh."
ABC News political analyst Matthew Dowd agreed. He alleged that Republican leaders lacked the guts to stand up to Limbaugh because of a "myth" that the radio personality influences a large segment of conservative voters.
"I think the problem is the Republican leaders, Mitt Romney and the other candidates, don't have the courage to say what they say in quiet, which, they think Rush Limbaugh is a buffoon," Dowd theorized. "They think he is like a clown coming out of a small car at a circus. It's great he is entertaining and all that. But nobody takes him seriously."
But not everyone in the conservative blogsphere believes that Limbaugh went too far. Limbaugh still has his admirers there who see fit to either ignore the whole controversy, or to stick up for the woman-bashing creep and continue to degrade and denigrate Ms. Fluke or to contort their reasoning in trying to make what Limbaugh did the same as what Ed Schultz did in his slur on Laura Ingraham and what Bill Maher says in his comedy monologues:
" Limbaugh should not have called that woman a slut. Moocher is a more apt description.March 4, 2012 2:17 PM
Pardon me while I laugh my ass off at your phony outrage..."
And pardon us for vomiting as we watch rightwing bloggers fall all over themselves to try to find equivalency in this. There is none, no matter how far into the swill hole that is rightwing shock radio they dig to find one.
"Bill Maher is a spokesperson for the democrats whether it's once a week or once a month.
Limbaugh does what he does to stir up the masses and it just goes to show how utterly overly sensitive the left is. I used to think Limbaugh was a sexist until I actually listened to him and got the humor it really is just satire,unlike Maher who just comes off as arrogant and nasty. Anyone who knows who Limbaugh really is knows what he does on the air is just for the purpose of getting the left in a tizzy. His political views are what he truly believes but the other stuff is not who he really is ,but Maher used to be funny now he's just another holier than thou liberal who thinks he knows best.
Who cares who's doing it? The thing about the left is you have comedians and actors getting free air time to call people anything they want but because it's 'what they do' you get a free pass.
And it just so happened the president called this girl in the Green Room of MSNBC just before her interview there.
A 30 year old needs a phone call to tell how 'proud her parents must be' from the president? Are you kidding me?"
Bill Maher a "spokesperson" for the Democrats? This person obviously never watches him, since he's been one of Mr. Obama's loudest critics on the left. But forget this total ignorance on this winger's part. No one in the real world ever, ever calls Maher a "spokesperson" for the Left. Just another "false fact" to fit their false reality.
Another ray of sunshine is the fact that Limbaugh is one of the most disliked radio personalities in America:
"...three of the 26 news personalities are America's least favorite, almost half say Rush Limbaugh (46%).
Three in ten say Bill O'Reilly (31%)
and almost one-quarter say their least favorite is Nancy Grace (23%).
Rounding out the top ten least favorite news personalities are:
Sean Hannity (14%),
Katie Couric (10%),
Piers Morgan (10%),
Barbara Walters (10%),
Chris Matthews (10%),
Rachel Maddow (7%)
Wolf Blitzer (7%).
