    What a toxic person. In the big picture, his 'greatest' contribution was teaching many baby boomers how to be even more callous and morally bankrupt than they already were. He taught many conservatives to abandon principles of decency and to instead embrace anger, fear, and pointing fingers at the other side while standing for nothing of substance. Reagan and his precursors helped make the GOP a party of corrupt crony corporatism and vapid ideological cliches about cutting taxes and deregulation. Then people like Newt and Rush taught people to take that stupidity and add anger and fear to it. Our ancestors who believed in compassionate conservatism overall would be sickened by Rush.

    "Political correctness is facism pretending to be manners". George Carlin "Political correctness is America's newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people's language with strict codes and rigid rules. I'm not sure that's the way to fight discrimination. I'm not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech." George Carlin, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?

    Rush, a real American, a hero for we conservatives, the new Founding Father of this Great Country, that was created by English religious people that risked everything for FREEDOM, and for those liberals losers, the most hated man in America for them. As Jose Marti said, it is bad to have enemies but is even worse not to have any. GOD BLESS RUSH and the real Americans............

    BILLIONAIRES who care should buy adds on right wing media to re-educate, inform and show alternative ways of seeing the world. I doubt any of #45’s supporters and enablers have seen a nature show, watched PBS, enjoyed shows at the Lincoln Center, sat to watch Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, sat through CBS , enjoyed Sesame Street, read a biography on Mother Teresa, studied the laws of cause and effect or been curious about sea creatures, would watch Ma Rainey's Black Bottom or Kevin Costner's 500 Nations. There's no vacancy in a haters heart for such culture. I wish there were for folks like Rush Limbaugh, but I’m too late.

    At these moments the atheïst in me strangely hopes that Rush Limbaugh will face eternal punishment for his evil actions here on earth. On the other hand, Jehova being an evil god probably promotes him immediately to the evil heavens talk radio. Luckily Jehova doesn't exist, same as this evil guy no longer does. May you be forgotten as soon as possible!

    Ted Kennedy left a woman to drown to death after drunk driving a car into a lake - the left loved him The Clintons are liars & war criminals, Bill Clinton bombed a Sudanese pharmacy, killing unarmed civilians, without congressional approval, on the opening day of the Monica Lewinsky trial - the left loves them Andrew Cuomo kills more than 30,000 elderly people with reckless COVID responses as governor - the left loves him (and gives him an Emmy? For some reason?) Howard Stern rose to fame at the same time as Rush. Howard became famous by exploiting women, racism & disabled people - the left loves him, he's even a judge of "America's Got Talent" on network TV! WITH CHILDREN WATCHING! Rush Limbaugh averages one off color comment once per decade, while simultaneously contributing millions upon millions of dollars to cancer research, the St. Jude's childrens hospital, military families, etc etc -- the left declares him a deplorable menace to society... You guys spend so much time trying to sniff out & hunt down the enemies of civilized society...have you ever thought to check the mirror?

      Rush was indeed a conservative. No, he was not a radical. A much larger percentage of the USA agreed with most of what he said than you would believe. Your response reveals that you have no idea who and what he was.
