    When Rush is being sarcastic, I'd say a good deal of his followers don't see it as sarcasm, but rather truth.

    Just my two cents.

    But I saw the footage. I think many of these people who follow Rush in a blinded manner are not savvy enough to tell the difference.

    Except that Rush isn't a news anchorman...

    You're correct, he's a anchorman for his followers and he has taught then to scream the loudest to drown out the opposition.

    That is how the ultra right wing does business and why I refuse to try to have a civil conversation with them about politics, because it is never civil.

    Does he have to be? He preaches the Conservative Gospel.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Unfortunately, the devoted mostly don't.
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”

    Nor, apparently, do the antagonists.

    I just find it funny that after he found out it was a hoax, he tried to justify his seething rage by indicating that "there is a kernel of truth" behind it.

    Perhaps there is, I am just amazed that Rush has a following at this point. The staunchest right-wingers I know in real life even think he's a buffoon.

    And despite the fact that he isn't a "real" newsman, many people take him as such. Same with the talking heads on TV, if it's on a news channel, and politics are involved, some will always equate commentary with "news".
