Somehow, in his bizarre multi-day diatribe equating women who have sex using health care-provided birth control with prostitutes, Rush Limbaugh seems to have pissed off the only people to whom he is truly loyal.
"Due to recent commentary by Rush Limbaugh that does not align with our values, we’ve made the decision to immediately suspend all advertising on that program," Gabby Nelson, company spokeswoman at mattress manufacturer Select Comfort, said in an emailed statement.
Select Comfort, which advertises its Sleep Number brand bed, was the second company to sever ties with Limbaugh over the growing controversy. Sleep Train was the first to sever ties. It sent a message out on Twitter earlier today, telling consumers, "We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community's feedback."
Oh my! Can you imagine these companies' surprise when it was suddenly and shockingly brought to their attention that they were advertising with a person who was capable saying such derisive and ugly things?!
If only there were some way they could have known in advance.

Shocking News! Though, maybe it's not all that shocking considering the moral turpitude of today's liberal smut-peddlers.
It would appear as though Barack Obama, a sitting President of the United States, has been outed as make a phone call to a person who has been publicly-identified as a "prostitute." Isn't that just like a Democrat…
President Barack Obama called Sandra Fluke on Friday to express his concerns to the law student who was called a "slut" by Rush Limbaugh.
"He encouraged me and supported me and thanked me for speaking out about the concerns of American women," the third-year Georgetown University law student said on Andrea Mitchell Reports. "And what was really personal for me was he said to tell my parents they should be proud. And that meant a lot because Rush Limbaugh had questioned whether or not my family would be proud of me. I appreciated that very much."
Calling is one thing, but "encouraging" and "supporting" her efforts? That's going a bit too far, I think. Even for him.
Why, if so-called progressives like Obama and Fluke had their way, I'll bet women would be allowed to have sex with whomever they wanted to whenever they wanted to! Can you even imagine what an amoral dystopian wasteland that would create?

I don't know what to make of this news…
Nancy Pelosi announced today that the House Democratic Steering and Policy Committee will hold a hearing Thursday on the issue of women's health.
The sole witness at the hearing will be Ms. Sandra Fluke, a third-year law student at Georgetown University, who was blocked from testifying at a recent Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing by Chairman Darrell Issa.
For the record, I'm fine with the idea of a third-year law student and former president of Georgetown’s Students for Reproductive Justice group sitting before Congress to testify on women's health issues. Even if she is a woman. (Some of my best friends are people who are married to women.)
I'm just saying it's a slippery slope. I mean, today it's a woman testifying on women's health issues? What's next? A dog testifying on women's health issues? A rakishly-askew bowler hat testifying on women's health issues? We have to draw the line somewhere.
That's why I think it's best to just leave this to the people who know what they're talking about: sexually-repressed virgins and the modern-day equivalent of village shamans.
