    but he relies on liberals reaction for his material
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    mostly their actions, not reactions.

    Re: Is rush limbaugh serious?

    I listened to Rush way back in the late 90's quite a bit but after about a year realized he's an airwave used car salesman. He would say almost anything if it helped improve his ratings. One of the most disgusting comments was when he said he was "glad" when some Christian missionaries in Iraq got kidnapped. How sick does one have to be to express joy at the end of others' lives purely out of political disagreement? Even if it was for ratings, still demented.

    In what world do you live in? Do you think Michael Jackson's Invincible sold 10 million records because of the fine lyrical and production values? Sorry. In showbiz. The more controversial and big freak show you are. The more you get risk and get paid.

    I would say Jackson is not a good example because his fan based was not derived from FreakShowSupaStarz. His Thriller album changed American pop music on levels people are still trying to comprehend.

    Looking back at my old post, I think that's likely the one thing I disagree with.

    I think he would likely garner more constant listeners if slightly less controversial...I think he'd gain more than he'd lose. I don't necessarily think now though that he'd make more money being less controversial, becuase I think its his hyper controversial nature which spurs media attention, political attention, and the spikes in listernership at times which helps make him a household name and thus good to sponsor.
    You down with TPP?

    Talk radio is a political farce for an audience that generally pretends to care about the world around them, thus if the controversy is removed so are the ad $$$$. Limbaugh being exposed as a hypocrite and drug addict didn't hurt him...what does that say? He got caught coming back from the DR, known for child prostitution, with a bag full of Viagra...didn't hurt him.

    I know this may shock and amaze some people, and I know there'll be people screaming "Its hypocritical" and maybe it will be...

    But being addicted to perscription pain killers you started taking for pain is viewed differently in the mind of the vast majority of Americans than dropping acid or snorting coke.

    the issue isn't how things are viewed in the minds of the vast majority.

    your argument is an appeal to popularity.

    hypocrisy is hypocrisy. period.

    "Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country ... and we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs ... and so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up."
