StopRush: Here are the companies that advertised on Rush Limbaugh's show yesterday

Two quick points:
1. Phone calls are definitely more effective than emails or online comments, because phone calls are very hard to ignore, especially without risking the loss of friendlier calls and even sales.
2. Companies that are playing the game of "oh, we buy ads through an ad network and didn't know that..." are doing just that: playing games. If they don't know who their ad dollars are supporting, then they damn well need to find out.
Here is an exhaustive list of sponsors and their contact info as well as radio stations that carry Rush from StopRush:https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/lv?key=0Arq-RSjkEdctdFl3LTB1eEVqc0RwODVtb2xGdVUtSWc&toomany=true#gid=0
