    LMAO :P

    Yeah, there's a little "Rush" in every sip.

    And he didn't just put himself on the label - according to his website, Limbaugh went through dozens of blind tasting sessions and is now an accredited tea tasting specialist.

    It comes in original and raspberry flavours, and both are available in low-calorie versions.

    But he reassures dieters: 'you still get a dose of pure Americana in every single drop you taste.'

    A percentage of every sale will go to the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation, a charity which helps the children of servicemen who died in combat.
    I heard him talking about the tea the other day in my car while on my lunch break. It actually made me laugh. It just seems silly to me. I would never really associate him with a mass marketing type of thing like this, though I suppose it shouldn't surprise me. It's essentially like when celebrities come out with their own line of fragrances. Yes, it's nice that he is donating a percentage to the troops. Overall, though, it's just kind of ridiculous. Does drinking his tea somehow make you more patriotic than drinking other teas? Is Glenn Beck going to come out with his own line of energy bars now?

    Who could honestly believe that "no shipping cost" is some kind of discount? It's almost too perfect that his fans could be lured by such a claim.

    Perhaps for the next holiday he'll offer "10% off what I was thinking of charging".

    It was funny because people were calling in and bragging that they stayed on hold for a whole hour trying to order that stuff. Apparently, the demand was high. I don't imagine it to last, though. Obviously, Rush fans are probably going to be the only ones ordering it.

    Rush is a mature enough broadcaster to understaff.

    It's really kind of a clever marketing plan, associating patriotism and supporting the troops with a product that he profits from. Now, if people say that they won't buy the tea because they aren't fans of Rush or can't stand him, he can criticize them for being unpatriotic and not caring about the troops...which inevitably leads to countless hours of material for his show.

    It's too expensive, but the caricature of him is cute.

    It would make much more sense if it were kool-aid.

    It practically is, the first ingredient after water is sugar. It's koolaid with some crap from we don't know where and raspberry doesn't sound promising.

    Now ptif will have no business being angry when people accuse him of "drinking the kool-aid."
