The Left has been busy trying to undermine the livelihood of Rush Limbaugh for crudely but aptly describing the self-admitted behavior of feminist propaganda artist Sandra Fluke. They also want everyone to think the Rush Limbaugh show is on the verge of going under.
But as is the case with pretty much everything we hear from the Left, what they say and reality are quite different.
You see, the Left understands the herd instinct very well. They know that uniformed and unintelligent people will easily go where the herd is perceived to be going. Therefore, the Left works very hard to create the impression that the herd is going in whatever direction they want it to be going. In other words, they don’t observe the evolution of public opinion, they work very hard to shape it, based on the herd instinct.
In this case, they are trying to create the impression that all of Limbaugh’s advertising sponsors are abandoning the show; their current number is an alleged 28 sponsors having jumped ship in obedience to Leftist hysteria. They hope to create the impression (for the benefit of the herd) that the herd is running away from Limbaugh, in the hopes that this impression will lead the herd to really run away from Limbaugh.
However, as Limbaugh explained on his show this morning, advertisers come and go constantly. Of course, because of the faux furor the Left created because Limbaugh referred to a woman who publicly claimed to be having enough sex to warrant $1,000 a year in contraception as a “slut,” and because a few of his advertisers were in fact gutless enough to ask “How high?” when the Left told them to jump, liberals hope to capitalize on the regular ebb and flow of advertising to create a false impression.
In actuality, as Limbaugh says, even losing the number of sponsors the propaganda artists on the Left claim would be like losing a couple of fries out of your combo meal.
After all, most businesses know that (a) the Rush Limbaugh show provides a tremendous market for their products, and (b) this faux controversy over a woman who is trying to subvert religious freedom is a load of bunk.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
