Stephen Colbert Mocks Rush Limbaugh's Fleeing Advertisers (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

As the controversy over Rush Limbaugh's offensive comments about birth control continues, Stephen Colbert scrutinized the backlash from advertisers as well as Limbaugh's defense on Thursday night's "Colbert Report."

The number of organizations who have removed ads from Limbaugh's radio show is now at well over 100, which even includes the United States Army. Colbert noted the implicit significance of the armed forces pulling their commercials:

"The army is pulling out of Rush. Meanwhile, they're staying in Afghanistan to negotiate with the Taliban, who evidently have a better track record on women's issues."

Limbaugh has staunchly denied being anti-women's rights, saying, "I even judged the Miss America pageant."

As Colbert joked, "What more does he have to do, judge Playmate of the Year?"

Watch the full clip above to see Colbert analyze the ongoing controversy and reveal ideas for a Rush Limbaugh pledge drive.
