OK

Does that not make the heart sing?

ThinkProgress has obtained an internal memo from Premiere Radio Networks listing 96 national companies that have “specifically asked” their advertisments not be played during the Rush Limbaugh Show. Premiere is the distributor of Limbaugh’s program. The advertisers have also requested to be excluded from other right-wing hosts including Michael Savage, Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity. According to the memo, the listed companies’ advertisements should be excluded from these programs because they have been “deemed to be offensive.”

Sorry has not been enough, those two little words were not and have not been the issue, it was the three days of an irate and misogynistic man going off in an hateful manner against not just one woman, but all women.

Mother's, sisters, daughters and friends.  Women are under attack and do not let anyone tell you otherwise.  

Rush, your time is short, your intent had more with intimidating women from using their voice to speak up for their health, their right to access to health care and their ability to be full fledged citizens.  All of which is every single person's right, regardless of sex.

It will not get better for you Mr. Limbaugh because you crossed the line.  This is not about religious freedom, this is not about Ed Shultz nor is about Bill Maher, this is about what you did.

Think Progress has an internal memo listing all the companies.

Here they are:

Previously, ThinkProgress has reported that 50 companies requested their advertising be pulled from the Rush Limbaugh show following his sexist attacks on Sandra Fluke. The publication of the memo adds an additional 91 companies to the list of companies that have dropped Limbaugh:

Here is a link to the memo.

This is huge, it has shown that speaking out matters but it has also shown that Republican's are on the wrong side of the issue.  And their disappointment extends to the Republican nominees absolute lack of a back bone when it comes to condemning Limbaugh's rant.  

It's not just Democratic leftist women, this is not a "Femanzi" issue (as Rush would so lovingly say)  Moderate Republican woman are fed up with the attack on women.

Ms. Russell, who changed her political views at the baby shower, said she was impressed with how Mr. Obama handled his administration’s compromise over the much-debated birth control policy, saying, “I think he’s more of a women’s candidate.”

Mr. Romney’s reaction to Mr. Limbaugh’s statements about the Georgetown student cemented a negative view of him. “I expected him to have the guts to stand up and say what Rush did was wrong,” she said. “Wrong, wrong, wrong in every sense of the word wrong.”

Wrong, to the point where Centrist women are either going to stay home or vote Obama
“We all agreed that this seemed like a throwback to 40 years ago,” said Ms. Russell, 57, a retired teacher from Iowa City who describes herself as an evangelical Christian and “old school” Republican of the moderate mold.

Until the baby shower, just two weeks ago, she had favored Mitt Romney for president.

Not anymore. She said she might vote for President Obama now. “I didn’t realize I had a strong viewpoint on this until these conversations,” Ms. Russell said. As for the Republican presidential candidates, she added: “If they’re going to decide on women’s reproductive issues, I’m not going to vote for any of them. Women’s reproduction is our own business.”
