"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. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have nonetheless decided to withdraw our advertising from his show. We hope that our action, along with the other advertisers who have already withdrawn their ads, will ultimately contribute to a more civilized public discourse." -
Carbonite CEO David Friend on why the company is still dropping its advertisements from Rush Limbaugh’s show despite his faux apology.
Bravo to Carbonite and their CEO. More of this, please.
BREAKING: Limbaugh’s written “apology” to Sandra Fluke isn’t really an apology
After three days of personally insulting her…
… Rush Limbaugh releases a written statement: “In this instance, I chose the wrong words in my analogy of the situation. I did not mean a personal attack on Ms. Fluke.”
… which really only furthers his sexist attack, saying Fluke wanted to “discuss personal sexual recreational activities before members of Congress.”
… and he only did this after at least five advertisers revolted.
"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." -

That’s the guy I voted for. That, right there.
