The rift between Sleep Train Mattress Centers and Rush Limbaugh apparently became permanent today after Limbaugh reportedly turned aside the Sacramento retailer's attempt at a truce.

Limbaugh rebuffed Sleep Train's request that the controversial radio host resume his duties as a paid spokesman for the company.

Sleep Train stopped advertising on Limbaugh's show after he called a law student advocating for birth control coverage at Georgetown University a "slut" and a "prostitute" over her stance on contraception. The retailer said it can't "condone such negative comments directed toward any person."

Limbaugh, through his spokesman Brian Glicklich, turned aside Sleep Train's attempts to resume advertising on the show.

"Unfortunately, your public comments were not well received by our audience, and did not accurately portray either Rush Limbaugh's character or the intent of his remarks. Thus, we regret to inform you that Rush will be unable to endorse Sleep Train in the Future."

Dale Carlsen, head of Sleep Train, issued a statement saying: "We confirm that Rush Limbaugh will no longer be one of Sleep Train's radio endorsers."

Business runs on people buying your product, and no business can survive by blowing off their potential customers.. There are a lot of people in this country that believe Rush' s comments ,while being over the top, where exactly the truth. No matter the agree or disagree no company can afford to tell 20 million potential customers to "stick it" which is exactly what sleep train told them. Now that those 20 million are not hearing about a product and possibly a decrease in stock value, they want to come back to the good graces . Well as grandad would say"you plowed them rows crooked, now harvest them the same way" :D :D
