You know you've had a bad day when sixteen companies pull their ads away from your show, all because you stuck the proverbial foot in mouth to get a rise out of the base who watch your program religiously. The woes of TV crybaby and shameless opportunist continues, as Huffington Post reported today that thanks to ColorOfChange.org's efforts to boycott Beck's idiotic and irresponsible comments toward President Obama, the Glenn Beck Program has now lost sixteen company ads in one day.The companies include Lowes, Verizon Wireless, and Johnson & Johnson, to name a few.

The new companies distancing themselves from Beck include Airware Inc. (makers of Brez anti-snoring aids), Ancestry.com, AT&T, Blaine Labs Inc., Campbell Soup Company, Clorox, Ditech, The Elations Company, Experian (creator of FreeCreditReport.com), Farmers Insurance Group, Johnson & Johnson (makers of Tylenol), Lowe's, NutriSystem, Sprint, The UPS Store and Verizon Wireless.

A quick recap of the companies Beck has lost:
• Progressive Insurance
• Proctor & Gamble
• Lawyers.com
• Men's Wearhouse
• Sargento Cheese
• Wal-Mart
• Best Buy
• Travelocity
• Allergan (maker of Restasis)
• Ally Bank (a unit of GMAC Financial Services)
• Broadview Security
• Re-Bath
• Radio Shack
• Roche
• Sanofi-Aventis
• SC Johnson
• State Farm Insurance
• Airware Inc. (makers of Brez anti-snoring aids)
• AT&T
• Ancestry.com
• Cambell Soup Company
• Verizon Wireless
• Lowe's
• Johnson & Johnson
• Ditech
• Blaine Labs Inc.
• Clorox
• Sprint
• The UPS Store
• Farmers Insurance Group
• Experian (creator of FreeCreditReport.com)
• The Elations Company
• NutriSweet
If you're keeping score at home, that's thirty-six ads he's lost due to his big trap. How many more will he lose in the weeks ahead? A more important question: if this trend keeps going, how long will Beck stay before he gets s-canned by Roger Ailes? I almost feel sorry for Beck.

The same way I felt sorry when Bush Jr. finally left the building.
