Sorry, Rush. Sluts poop and shower, too.
It's been nearly a month since Rush Limbaugh called law student Sandra Fluke a slut for standing up for free contraceptives from religious institutions. Since his outburst, he's lost over 150 advertisers, including Sears, Walmart, Allstate, Quicken Loans and H&R Block. But now, another company has joined the list of companies that don't want to be associated with the Big Fat Idiot: toilet and shower manufacturer Kohler.
The Wisconsin-based company announced earlier this week that they've pulled their spots from Limbaugh's program because of his sickening comments regarding Fluke and women's rights. "We don't support the comments from Mr. Limbaugh and have pulled our advertising from his show," said Kohler spokeswoman Jennifer Taylor. The company also made the offical announcement on their Twitter account.
Despite a half-assed apology to Fluke on his show, Limbaugh has proven that he's nothing more than a low-life pill-popper who lacks sensitivity. After all, he's been married four times and has no kids. I'll betcha that his current wife only married him for the money. Kohler did the right thing by realizing that their customers have a degree of sensitivity and advertising their products on an insensitive show like Limbaugh's just isn't the best business model.
Of course, it's still sad that a store that sells Kohler products that's also based in Wisconsin, Menards is still advertising on the show. But then again, the Menard family are huge supporters of the Koch brothers, which explains a lot.
Thanks, Kohler. Maybe I might buy your products one of these days.
