    Re: Is Rush Limbaugh a "conservative giant?"

    He is absolutely a giant. He is THE leading Conservative in this country. Name a Conservative who commands more attention or has as much influence.

    None of the elected Conservatives have as much sway as Rush. And all the Conservative commentators and pundits in America revolve around or are largely influenced by Rush Limbaugh.

    He is even more important and influential than the hugely important and inimitable Ann Coulter.

    Re: Is Rush Limbaugh a "conservative giant?"

    I believe Rush really opened the door for other conservatives to have a medium for their points, and has single handedly kept talk radio from completely dying off. No matter whether one agrees with his stances, or even likes him as a person, they are being foolish if they don't recognize his influence as a broadcaster. Since he is a "conservative" broadcaster, I believe its fair to call him a conservative giant.

    Despite knowing nothing about real conservatism, he is probably the one of the greatest radio personalities of all time in terms of profit and ratings.

    Well, by that definition 'conservative' has no definition.

    It doesn't seem to these days, does it? Everybody thinks "they" embody conservatism, and all other brands are wrong.

    Who knows if he is the most ideologically pure Conservative or not?

    He is the leading standard bearer.

    A true giant.

    He is, as many pointed out, a conservative radio show host...
    He is no different then anyone else...
    except the fact that he gets so much attention - but that does not have to do with him as a person, but rather the rather at times the pathetic media - keying on a radio show host...

    They're bigger fish to fry out there...

    Why does he get so much media attention? Why did he get media attention at the start of his political talk show career?

    He's like anyone else like Trump or Jack Nicholson or Billy Graham are like anyone else. They distinguished themselves by their endeavors and performance.

    A conservative giant.
