Don't Rush me?

This topic is in keeping with my pledge not to ever post anything
which might be (or become) provocative or confrontational

I discovered Rush Limbaugh many years ago and like other life-changing
events (Kennedy assassination, 9-11) I remember the
exact moment. I was driving from Chicago to St. Louis and dialing around
on the radio. This guy came on and I was blown away. He was talking about stuff and expressing opinion I had held forever. Whenever I
am in the car and he is on, I listen to his show. Is he frequently
over the top? Yes. Does he make unsupported assertions? You bet.
Do I ever turn the radio off in disgust? Absolutely. Am I sounding
Rumsfeldian again? Yep.


Bottom line......I think he is a great great man (for a lot of reasons)
and I have a tremendous amount of admiration for him and what he does.

Re: Don't Rush me?

The key issue here John is whether you were doing the Chgo to St L drive on I55 or I57?

BTW, taking the Marineer to the shop in Rockford. Thanks for the tip.

Wouldn't that be Oxycontinhead? I consider him the political equivalent of Howard Stern - gotta keep saying outrageous things to keep people listening.

I admit you made me go to dictionary.com, but i felt better when i got an error searching "Oxycontinhead". I always look up any word i dont know, and i presume that isn't one.

Cant say i like equating him to Howard Stern, because i happen to like Stern.

Oxycontin is the drug he was supposedly addicted to. If crack addict = crackhead, then oxycontin addict = oxycontinhead. Guess I coined a new word.

Is that what he was using. I admit, i'm not very knowledgeable about the various narcotics out there.

Of course i just chose crackhead thinking most would assume i was just using it figuratively.

I prefer "irritainment." I often listen to far right talk radio in the car when I am sleepy. Either I can laugh atthem or get PO'd enough to stay awake.

I guess his latest blunder was mocking Michael J. Fox, rocking back and forth. I just can't see how anyone could make fun of person who has a disability or illness no matter how much you may disagree with that persons cause or belief.

I think the oxycontin helps dull one's conscience.

Re: Don't Rush me?

I think it is worse than bad entertainment. The guy lies, spouts views based on warped science, and pontificates as though he is an authority in order to advance an agenda. The political agenda has some legitamite elements but many that are simply in service to corporate oligarchy. It makes me sick that this parasite has honed a formula that keeps the sheep in his fold. It is tragic that a huge proportion of the populace lets a devious mf'er like him do their thinking and conditon their opinions.

Former DW said I was built without a "sensitivity chip". I prefer to think
it was a "humility chip". In any case, I share some of these traits with Rush.
BTW, as someone pointed out, his show is mostly entertainment.

What I find interesting is that his show is so popular, while the Dems just closed down their talk-radio network. Why was no one listening to them?
