Rush Limbaugh Loses More Than 30 Advertisers Over “Slut” Remark

by

Rush Limbaugh famously used his syndicated radio show to call Georgetown U student Sandra Fluke, who’s in favor of Obama’s birth control policy, a “slut” and a “prostitute.”

Rush apologized, but the advertisers aren’t buying it and they’re dropping like discontented little corporate flies.

J.C. Penney, Capital One, and others have gone by the wayside, as–guess who?–Sarah Palin declares this hypocritical and a violation of First Amendment rights.

(Um, Sarah, you can say whatever you want on the radio, but this being a business, consequences are perfectly natural and allowable.)

But here’s a much more crushing blow to Rush:

Peter Gabriel wants the right-wing prig to stop using his song “Sledgehammer” on his show.

I guess you can be a sledgehammer, but you don’t have to play one.
