Pro Flowers drops Rush

Blue Gal of Driftglass was hoping Pro Flowers would drop El Rushbo and it did.

ProFlowers, is one of the seven  companies that announced it  would halt advertising on Rush Limbaugh's show. The company said: 

Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. 

Last May Rightardia reported that Limbaugh had lost 30 per cent of his listenership. Advertisers pick up on demographic changes like this quickly.

The "slut" comments may have been the straw that broke the camel's back.

Rush added insult to injury by slamming women a second time. He suggested that women who use birth control are prostitutes.

Rush has always been a "shock jock" much like Howard Stern. He has used controversy top generate media numbers.

He finally went overboard and the Democrats pounced on him.
