    Either way, your assessment was incorrect.

    See the truth is, yeah he's out to make money. And he's doing so hand over fist. He's doing what he loves and isn't ashamed about it. He also believes everyone has the potential, and we need to harness our own strength not rely on others to get ahead in life.

    But you don't know this, because you have never listened to him.
    We'll keep this in mind next time you have something to say about Chris Matthews. You wouldn't know, because you don't watch him.

    Keep drinking that Kool-Aid.

    I'm sure that none of the positive reviews were based on his politics or anything like that. I mean, we all know that Rush Limbaugh's fans are completely apolitical.

    Why not read the book and tell us what's wrong with?

    My, aren't you clever. You just proved that you haven't read the book. ROTFL


    You haven't read it, either.
    You don't have to read the book to praise Limbaugh effusively. Only to say anything negative about him.

    Maybe you should read it so you can tell us what's so great about it.
