Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has called Rush Limbaugh’s derogatory comments about Georgetown law student Sandra Fluke “totally and completely unacceptable.” Bravo!
AOL, ProFlowers, Carbonite, Quicken Loans, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, Citrix Systems Inc., Legal Zoom, and Allstate have all withdrawn their advertising from Mr. Limbaugh’s syndicated show. Bravo! eHarmony, where are your corporate values? You’d be wise to reflect on the comments of Carbonite CEO David Friend:
No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency.
Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh.
[House Speaker John] Boehner comes out and says Rush’s language was inappropriate. Using the salad fork for your entrée, that’s inappropriate. Not this stuff. And it was depressing because what it indicates is that the Republican leaders are afraid of Rush Limbaugh. They want to bomb Iran, but they’re afraid of Rush Limbaugh.
