You posted your take and I pointed out that your comment was not quite true; I explained why. I also pointed out that the arguments that Limbaugh’s audience is merely the disenfranchised stupid and uneducated masses that so many STILL claim them to be, was long ago debunked. And I mean long ago. Gone (except in the minds of people like Middleground) are the days when one could claim the Limbaugh audience as disenfranchised Joe Six Pack and that is for whom Rush speaks, and still be taken seriously. This is in fact what the early attacks on his audience were and sometimes still are. It took a while for the demographics to demonstrate who the kind of people that listen to him and talk radio in general are. Which is generally well informed educated upwardly mobile and often affluent, but not exactly the non thinking Limbot/robot types. Fact of the matter is that Limbaugh has one of the most valuable and envied demographic bases of any entertainer in the world. Yet in 2009 we have posters like Middleground and others, who actually don’t know this and will even argue that this same audience is brainwashed and insert really dumb claim here.
This was all completely apparent in #61 http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1057902223
Since you claim to work at a radio broadcast station and have yourself made similar comments as mine about the Limbaugh audience in this thread, what is it exactly you think you want to argue? What semantic hairsplitting are you on about? Do tell, because as you can see I’m not exactly intimidated or stonewalled by your more irrational tactics (his Holiness, I lied, I invented, I made up, I'm ignorant) and it started in #88 http://www.debatepolitics.com/breaki...post1057902385 . Which is where you tried to trot out the argument that my comments were somehow off base because you did not argue context. While at the same time still arguing that Limbaugh literally said he wants Obama to fail. Yet in another post in this thread you admit you realize he did not mean that literally. Yet there you are arguing otherwise with me in #88. Dumb huh? And so it has gone, at your insistence, since then.
So tell me, which of my points about Limbaugh’s audience demographics is it I am lying about? And let me go you one better, I’m so eager to dodge and avoid this argument you insist on having that I’ll be glad to debate those points with you in a True Debate. I suggest you head to work and ask if there are any of the annual demographic breakouts from Talkers magazine around for you to bone up on. You see, despite your juvenile goads and pretense that I am lying, I tend to speak to matters and facts that I have a pretty firm command of and familiarity with.
So yeah, let us see if we can at last find some put up or shut up, or not. Either way you’ll find me more than willing to give you as much rope as you want here. When ever I make that promise I can assure you I mean it. I enjoy a good fight no matter the venue and I’ll be glad to disabuse you of this fantasy you are under where I am avoiding you in order to “dance” as you posture about. Frankly all I can see from your posts directed at me thus far is posturing.

Actually I’m not attacking you, I’m mocking you and the way you fled from the thread so bravely. I must tell you that people who make the kind of scene you did, but then flee rather than own up to the scene they made much of and got wrong, are not very compelling folks in general. In fact on internet debate forums they are a dime a dozen.
Yes folks, you just can't make up this liberal mumbo jumbo. If you won't join them, be censured.
The ONLY ones in the world and on this forum who can't stand free speech are the Liberals who constantly rail about how evil Fox News and Rush Limbaugh are; two supposedly minor players in the world of media empires.
But to compound the laughable state Liberals are in, they want to suggest that it was patriotic to impugn and hate George Bush, but wrong to say anything against Obama's plan to destroy the American economy and dream and they are out in fanatical droves to slam the small single voice in American that still has some reason; Rush Limbaugh.
The only thing more fantastical here is the silly assed notion being expressed by the drive-by media and Liberal Democrats that allowing the Government to spend us into a two trillion debt hole is the ONLY way to get us out of a recession.
It would be hilarious if it weren't such an impending disaster for generations of Americans and the future of our economy,
Carry on; watching you people rant and whine about Rush is about as amusing as watching you suggest that impugning the Commander and Chief while our troops are at risk is somehow patriotic. Yet now it is unpatriotic to suggest that Obama's plan is idiotic. Got hypocrisy?
I hope Rush holds another ebay auction on this.
