Fresh off the heels of his absolutely vile comments referring to a college student as a “slut” and a “prostitute,” conservative radio blowhard Rush Limbaugh has started to lose advertisers.

After being bombarded on Twitter, mattress store Sleep Train said that it would no longer advertise during Limbaugh’s top-rated show following days of outrage over Limbaugh’s statements about Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown student who was denied a chance to speak at a Congressional hearing about birth control.

“We are pulling our ads with Rush Limbaugh and appreciate the community’s feedback,” the company wrote in a tweet.

Later on Friday, another mattress company, Sleep Number, announced through a spokeswoman that it had also pulled its ads from Limbaugh’s show. So did companies Legal Zoom, Citrix and Quicken Loans.

While I’m certainly happy to see Rush Limbaugh losing sponsors over his positively vile comments, I’d rather see him fired.

    We can only hope this trickle of departing sponsors becomes a flood and this turns out to be Rush’s Imus moment. The man nothing but a horse’s ass with a microphone. It should be time to go.
