Since Limbaugh became a national syndicated talk show phenom, the GOP has lost the Potus popular vote 5 of 6 times.

People in the middle, that can be persuaded to vote for either side, apparently nmay be entertained by Rush, but not persuaded regarding how they vote.

His style of entertainment accomplishes a big audience for hime, big income, but it does NOT help win elections.

Republicans and so-called conservatives listen to him cheer lead. They know the olde cheers. But fewer and fewer people show up on their side of the stadium come game time.

Rush's performances should be recognized for what they are: Episodes in an entertainment serial.

eg. Saturday Night Live, Mrs. Marple, Dallas.

What does that have to do with this article... other than an opportunity to say how much you dislike Rush?

I did not say that I disliked Rush.

Why do you repeatedly try to put words in my mouth, instead of responding to the substance of what I say?

Ahh, so Rush Limbaugh is in fact a titan, a king-maker, creating and disposing of would-be Presidents and other political figures?

Certainly not the words of someone who looks up to, admires, or loves Limbaugh.

Your words look like talking points from someone trying to discredit Limbaugh.

Correlations are often confused with some type of casual relationship.  Correlations are not facts, only curiosities put out by opponents.

Hows that for addressing your red herring.


Next time try being objective or at least a bit less obvious.


All the best,
