The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has launched a campaign calling on advertisers to drop Rush Limbaugh. Via Politico:
Today’s blast email from DCCC Chairman Steve Israel asks supporters to sign a petition calling on Limbaugh’s sponsors to pull their advertising from his program. The effort comes after Limbaugh protested an Ohio State policy instructing students to get verbal consent before having sex because, Limbaugh said, “no” sometimes means “yes.” “How many guys, in your own experience with women, have learned that no means yes if you know how to spot it?” Limbaugh said. “Are these [policies] not lawsuits waiting to happen?” Wrote Israel, “Comments of this offensive nature are inexcusable… Rush Limbaugh is advocating for the tolerance of sexual assault. He should be taken off the air immediately.” The email then directs recipients to a form where they are required to fill out their email address and have the option of supplying the DCCC with their zip code.
Twitchy is ever so pissed about this “fascist” move.
