“Dun…dun…dun….another one bites the dust,” as the great band Queen said. DC Debbie tweeted “VICTORY!!! @ProFlowers suspends all advertising on Rush Limbaugh: twitpic.com/8s1mbc via @StopRush #BoycottRush” This makes seven to pull their support from Limbaugh since he went on the offensive against Sandra Fluke, and this is despite his ‘apology’. His apology is not sitting well with everyone, including Republican Representative Ron Paul.
Paul has said that the apology that Limbaugh’s calling Fluke a ‘slut’ and ‘prostitute’ had nothing to do with being sorry, and everything to do with self interest. Paul stated that “He’s doing it because some people were taking their advertisements off of his program. It was his bottom line he was concerned about.”
Paul stated that “I don’t think he’s very apologetic. It’s in his best interest, that’s why he did it.”
Of course, Paul, who happens to be one of those who hates anything dealing with the government providing services for people added “This is philosophically and politically important because, does the government have a mandate to tell insurance (companies) what to give? So they’re saying that the insurance companies should give everybody free birth control pill, that strikes me as rather odd.” He was speaking to Bob Schieffer, and said as well “It’s this mandate, this is an obsession with Obama on mandating,” Paul said, then moving on to critique the Republicans as well. “Of course the Republicans aren’t a whole lot better on this, either.”
