    He's paid to get an audience. He does that by giving political commentary and being funny. Both can be accomplished through political satire.

    I used to listen to him, (it's been a long time) but he would make me laugh out loud at times. It's just a shame that there are people on both sides that only get that type of humor only when it agrees with their opinion/beliefs and call for investigations, fines and lawsuits when it doesn't.

    His intentions aren't to be funny, but to sway public opinion...he is the face of the GOP which is clearly indicated by how scared they all are of him...it would be completely different if he chose to use facts for his arguments, but clearly he doesn't because the facts don't back up his ideas...

    he is more of a whore than Ms Fluke...

    I would certainly agree that he is attempting to sway public opinion. However, that hardly precludes being humorous. There is a lot of humor spread throughout his show.

    I guess humor is relative...if I find myself listening to him, and it is on rare occasion, I find that if I laugh it's usually AT him and not WITH him...to each his own, right...

    Sonny, You're dancing like a ballerina and just can't address Al "Smalley" Franken or Colbert... think skin maybe be an understatement. No more jokes unless Top Cat decides to excuse it ... hypocrite is a word lost in your limited vocabulary.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Yes, that seems rather obvious. For example, I don't think I have ever found Maher funny even though I get what he is doing. Many on the left disagree with me.

    To attract the audience he does, Rush would have ot bring more to the table then just swaying public opinion. He has to be entertaining / humorous. Otherwise, why listen?

    Wrong. when I went after that moron michael moore back in his heyday, I downloaded his movies, forced myself to watch them before pontificating on his bloatness.... You should get your information on rush from other than Media Matters.


    I am not a fan of his show, he is over the top and the moral conservativism position of he and his callers is too much for me. That said, I find it tiresome I have to correct his biggest detractors from thier glaring and collosal ignorance.

    First the apologists claim he's a comedian. Epic Fail

    The hits just keep coming.


    You mentioned 12 year olds before, Making false claims and declaring victory to me seems rather peurile.


    Rush is about as "funny" as Maher. both are political commentators. and do comedy and satire. Sorry you wish to make an excuse for the sexist vulgarity of "your side"...

    And you don't find refering to a woman politician and commentator as "barbie" sexist? I think we see where the disconnect lies.
