    Good morning Polgara

    Perhaps there will come a time when I can understand why it's more important to silence, than it is to just turn the channel. Equally, perhaps there will be a time when I understand why the call to silence another isn't seen as the slippery slope it most certainly is...

    I'm out of here in a few minutes - business meeting in San Diego - so I'll "look" for you later. Hope all is well in Ohio.

    I really hope this is the beginning of the end for Rush. I also really hope this is a signal that the country is sick and tired of political garbage for entertainment and is more interested in real discussion.
    Sorry, but Limbaugh has never depended on "top" advertisers, who have always been afraid to advertise with him. He's got his own mix of advertisers many of whom only advertise on his show, share his ideas, and are not going to be frightened away by the huffing and puffing of left wingers. Some of these companies you've probably never heard of. If you've ever bothered to actually listen to the show then you'd know this is true.

    Limbaugh has lost no ad revenue to speak of. A show that draws 20 million listeners every day isn't going to have trouble selling ad space no matter what. Efforts at getting advertisers to boycott are completely wasted.

    And even if something happened to Limbaugh you've got to realize that there are dozens of talkers who'd love to become the next Limbaugh. There's a talker in Houston named Michael Berry who might some day do that. He is already syndicating his show all over the place. (Man, if you think Limbaugh is racist you're gonna love Berry.)

    And in a note of irony, listeners of Rush are the people who actually have money to buy advertisers' products. His detractors, meanwhile, are watching MTV and can't get a credit card.

He still sucks, but if he can beat that kind of drug habit, then he is a little stronger than a lot of people give him credit for. And I'll give him that.

    Hillbilly Heroin implies that it's a milder form of heroin but it is far stronger and more addictive than heroin. My comment was acidulous - I've had the misfortune to become acquainted with Oxycontin and yes, his recovery shows a great strength of will.

    I've never viewed Rush as anything but an entertainer. Political exaggeration is what he sells in the same way that Die Hard is not accurate as a police procedural.

    Regardless " his crap" pales in comparison to the Democrat lies and Democrat failure.

    He calls them on their BS and you guys want to shut him up.

    I recommend it to all tea partiers, if they aren't already addicted to it.

    I didnt see a whole lot of influential liberal or 'progressive' programs. Ive heard a few of them. I understand why that is. You have the Limbaughs and Hannitys of the world, and then you have liberals and progressives spending all their day talking ABOUT the Limbaughs and the Hannitys. Its...sad, really.

    hell we wouldnt know anything about the day to days of Fox, Beck, and others if it werent for the oh so happy liberals and progressives on this site,.
    It's true that progressives and other educated people don't tend to listen to ranting Oxycontin addicts on the radio. It's a real problem for the left.
