The point being is that citizens have done nothing wrong, they merely email the advertiser's and ask: DO you know? And for merely asking an advertiser to consider what their advert $$$ are actually funding makes these folks "sniveling little jerkts". The joke is on Rush - his contract will expire soon.
Sure, there are other folks just like him - but ending his career on someone else's terms, not his own would be rich! In Response to "Stop Rush" group has caused many advertisers to bail and has Limbaugh rattled:
A new organization called "Stop Rush" has been so successful in getting advertisers to pull their ads from Limbaugh's daily radio program that they now have Rush Limbaugh clearly rattled. Last week on his program, he railed against "sniveling little jerks" who are "trying to scare advertisers" away from his program. But perhaps it is the content of Rush Limbaugh's program that is scaring away advertisers. Read on:
As usual, Limbaugh has some of his facts confused. The "little sniveling jerks" he refers to would be the StopRush movement, groups like the Flush Rush Facebook community.
But these groups aren't "trying to scare advertisers," they're simply contacting advertisers andquoting Rush Limbaugh verbatim to be sure the sponsor is aware of what they're being associated with.
Many of them aren't aware, and they often choose to pull their ads off the show.2638 have requested their ads not air on the Rush Limbaugh Show as of today.
But the reason these organizations pull their ads off the show isn't because of StopRush volunteers, it's because of the offensive content that comes out of Limbaugh's mouth--including regular homophobic rants, racial stereotypes, poor bashing, and even last week's incredibly insensitive jokes about exploding pressure cookers, just one day after 3 people were brutally murdered in Boston. Respectable organizations want nothing to do with that kind of thing.
Limbaugh alone is responsible for his advertiser exodus--nobody else.
As Limbaugh's large, well known advertisers have headed for the door, ad rates that Limbaughused to call "confiscatory" have dropped to all time lows.
Advertisers like Sony, Hallmark, Cadillac, and Office Depot have been replaced by a ragtag bunch including a suspected pyramid scheme, shady identity protection software, and even a church led by a murdering pastor. Oh, and the "penile enhancements."

Maybe the airwaves will be free of the bigoted misaganyist rants of a drug addled fat blowhard after all.
