Good point. Speaking of the elite, mention that to Al Gore next time you talk to him, will you? He still seems to want us all to pay more for energy, while he doesn't have to worry about it himself.

How is this relevant? I'm not paying Limbaugh's salary and neither are any of the hard working poor you referred to, but I would be paying for the extra energy costs (the elitist) Gore wants to saddle us with, and so would all the hard working poor.

It's funny because you are actually the brainwashed individual who need to be told how and what to think.
You just can't wait to get them liberal talking points.


You can flame your point all day, but the fact is... your throngs of right-winged Bush people are on the losing team. Just another cancer to throw in front of the recognized man of the hour - BARACK OBAMA.

Actually, I'm glad to have a clown like Rush to bring the republican zombies into the light of day. Any moron with a brain can dissect his high paid agenda for what it really is...

A LAST DITCH EFFORT BY THE REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED MEDIA TO RALLY LEGIONS OF DUMPED DOWN AMERICANS TO KEEP THE BS TRAIN AH ROLLIN!

Rush is all FLUFF and oral flatulence! Why people like you by into his web of deception and defend the Prozac stuffed clown baffles me?? But hey... every sheep has their opinion right? Lets just look at how smart those sheep are as it relates to humanity.

1. His got right winged Americans breaking their necks to send their sons in a millitary operation with no end in sight...


2. His listeners have been dupped into thinking Bush is actually a hero in the war on terror...


3. He brainwashes his listeners to actually blame Irag, Iran, and China because... "they made the GM plant close down, they took your jobs..."


4. He fools his listeners into believeing we are a god loving society with values... we give so much to other contries and they are all mad jealous of our way of life...


and the list of spoon feed morondom goes on........


Just like the 8 track reocrder his message of fake American values and christian based religious babble is nothing more than dated-tech. It's about time the morons who daily worship him realize he's just a mic holding used car salesman.

And here we have an excellent sample of how a logically defeated liberal acts. Depending on how thin the veneer of their knowledge is - memorized sound bites, or actually read 1 or 2 articles - governs how soon they resort to name-calling. They all eventually go there, the above just controls how soon.

As you re-read the following, imagine the red face and higher pitched and louder voice, the maniacal laughs ...

A calmer voice would then have to ask you in response, "If Limbaugh is only and all those things you mentioned, then why are you at all concerned at all about him?" He should be and mean nothing to you. But paradoxically, there you are all worked up and screaming about Limbaugh. The only explanation has to be that in spite of all your rantings about Limbaugh, you must in reality consider him the most dangerous man in America. Again why if he is all the things you've said?

Oh, you think flaming is when someone disagrees with you. Got it!

Bush people?? Again you show your ignorance. I disagree with Bush on tons of issues as does Rush.
The only thing Barack Hussein Obama is recongnized as is a loser with an extreme liberal agenda who dislikes what America stands for.

Last ditch effort??
You do realize Rush has been around since the 80's right? So how is that last ditch? And what makes you think that the Rupublicans control Rush? Care to provide any proof? Again you show your ignorance.
BTW, how did air america turn out?



Rush is all FLUFF and oral flatulence! Why people like you by into his web of deception and defend the Prozac stuffed clown baffles me?? But hey... every sheep has their opinion right? Lets just look at how smart those sheep are as it relates to humanity.

This is where brainwashed liberals like yourself get it wrong. You believe Rush tells people how to think because this is how you operate since you cannot think for yourself and must have the liberal media tell you how to think. In actuality, people listen to Rush because he expresses their thoughts and NOT the other way around.


and the list of spoon feed morondom goes on........

As long as you keep posting it does.

Rush builds his rhetoric on emotions like a carnival barker. People get wrapped up in feelings rather then facts on issues.

Did I say I was left or even liberal? Did I say I did not listen to other conservative talk shows?

No I didn't.

Sorry, but that sounds like an Obama speech which is all fluff and rhetoric and no substanance. In fact, Obama's speeches are nothing but emotion. Rush on the other hand backs up everything he states with facts which can be easily verified.

I am not an Obama supporter. Try again.

An experiment. If Rush spoke in a whisper - how many would listen?

THEY'RE ALL DRUG ADDICTS!!! Why on Earth would you start your whole LAME, OVER-USED, POLARIZING agenda that quite frankly shows your age (you're either too old OR you are a angsty teen - being either one sucks) and stokes fires for no apparent reason?

Well, my hats off to you.

Rush is a *Snip* who shouldn't get on any pedestal for 400 million zillion bucks. He's no better than anyone else, I've had better two-way communication about right-wing politics on a rapid transit bus here in LA several times.

He IS a hypocrite. I will never listen to him. He is boring... this monster is so dumb, he doesn't even want to realize the truth. Chrissy Hynde even got the best out of her personal deal with the monster. Having Limbaugh throw his support towards PETA in exchange for use of My City Was Gone proves anybody can be bought. Even a fat, angry man worth 400 mill.

Limbaugh Jumped the Shark with that move...


Stokes, flames... whatever YOU wanna call it... That is what Rush and all the rest of the POLARIZED talk show hosts get paid the BIG BIG BIG bucks to do. Just like Howard.

I'm not in the least concerned about him... He's just a mouth to your ears. I'm concerned about you and the psychology of it all... how can a well posted ATS man like you, who understands the real back story of this goverment fall for, and stand by this guy just to be in his fraternity? You well understand what's happening to the people in this country and it ain't good. He's a ever so slight ring leader of the machine. A drip in the stream to sway minds away from the real issuses.

No... he is definitley not the most dangous man in America, that title goes to Bush. But, he's in the top 100. He keeps the old guard noose of non-change loosely around peoples neck's. Be a free thinker don't ride this guy's jock!

Wrong? Liberal... liberating... a free thinker not bound by years of customs or beliefs. Does this sound brainwashed?? And I understand... it's the crowd preaching to the preacher your reference to Rush's people. But remember, this country, your country was founded on liberal thoughts... Have you become a victim of the gradual poison of false democracy?

From your avatar... the flag... the red, white and blue and neatly centered we have the jewel of freedom... the white house. This lets me know, you are the one who is thoust brainwashed. Patriotism is not something you brag about... it's something you earn by being a honest rep of your country and will go against your country when they not right.

To bad you or your liberal friends no longer fit that description.



But remember, this country, your country was founded on liberal thoughts

Our country was in no way founded on the current definition of liberalism. Our country was founded on what today we call conservatism. Liberalism today is very close to socialism and at it's worse marxism bordering on communism.


Patriotism is not something you brag about... it's something you earn by being a honest rep of your country and will go against your country when they not right.

Umm...no!
You don't go against your country, you go against the government when it needs fixing. Since you mentioned my avatar, I guess you need to learn the difference between being proud and bragging.

Well it goes without saying that money talks and bullspit talks as well.

It's funny that even though Rush will be making $400 mill, with his habit he will still have to buy his drugs from Canada.

I don't have an agenda. I merely stated my opinion that if you're going to hang Rush from a tree for certain things, then hang them all. Stop singling out the right and trouncing them when the left is no better. Bill Clinton isn't really worth the money he makes either. Why aren't you on the attack about that? I know... Rush is a Republican and Bill is a dem.

I think that pretty well sums it up.

Have a cup of tea and try to calm down as it seems you're a very excitable individual. He makes $400 million...so what? It's not coming out of your pocket.

And, you're not very good at making assumptions. I'm neither "too old" nor an "angsty teen". I'm 40.

And I guess Obama will still have to buy his coc aine from the streets.

Of course Obama's drug addiction is worse because he started using coc aine to party and have a good time while at least Rush got hooked on the narcotics because of a medical condition.

Obama is running for President! He is for Hope, Change, and the Future! He is all things to all people! He is omnipotent, and omnipresent, and messianic! Not being able to relate Obama to any topic would be sacreligious. He is a very important man, and should be included, not excluded from every topic. Exclusion is racism. Barack Obama should not be excluded. He has something to do with every topic...for he is the FUTURE!


Oh....back on topic....

Congratulations Rush! Your hard work continues to pay off!

It does have to do with this thread. Go back and read all the posts and you will find out how it links to Obama.

I guess the main point here is Rush worth it to who is paying him the money? Will he bring in more than $400 million in advertising during the next 9 years? Most likely I'd say he's more worth that money than the High Priced Ceo who presides over a period of diminishing profits, equity value loss, and scandal.

Another idea I've had is this. Rush was at his most popular and had his biggest audience during the Clinton years. Is Clear Channel making a bet based on who they believe will win the Election this year? Also Rush is no fan of McCain so even if McCain wins he will likely have Rush stirring the stinky stuff amongst hard line conservatives.

I do occasionaly listen to Rush, but am not a fan. Rush and Larry Flynt are made of the same cloth--no one has ever gone broke underestimating the taste of the American public.
