    You really shouldn't be knocking Dubya like this. He's already taken a beating for it.

    3. hard to get? when you are rich, doctors will perscribe you what ever you want. see you could give the man credit for overcoming his addiction... but no.. he is right wing, so attack away.....
    I'd give him more credit if he wasn't such a hypocrite.

    This thread asked if he was a conservative giant.... lets address that.
    I'd say he's as much as a giant as Moore on the left.

    Well all you gotta do is mention Limbaugh and along comes Ms. Middleground.

    Last heard from worrying about the kind of news the uniformed listeners of Limbaugh are getting. Worried about how uninformed and “brainwashed” the Limbots and people who listen to “talk radio” are supposed to be.

    Much like trying to compare Springer to Limbaugh, she narry lets a modern fact get in her way.

    So as is always the case with Middleground, allow me to bring up a few pertinent facts.

    Dear Middleground,
    For your purposes add up the entire financial worth of Michael Moore and Jerry Springer over their entire lifetime and career. Then lump them together and compare that sum just to Limbaugh’s last reported contract/salary agreement. Don’t add a penny earned before he signed his last contract nor after. Ignore those millions and only add the most resent contracted salary and profits. If you do this and are honest about it I will understand why you may be too embarrassed to come back here and admit how dumb your argument looks.

    Then do the same thing with the so called “influence” of Moore and Springer and compare them to Limbaugh’s. I won’t hold my breath waiting for you to show up and declare you have now educated yourself on this matter and won’t be caught making such specious claims in the future.

    In the other Limbaugh thread, you never showed up to address or acknowledge how specious your comments were. Maybe you should, you might learn something. Or maybe you should step boldly into 2009 and take a look at the demographic data related to your stated “concerns” about the “news” talk radio listeners are getting and who they are. You see your arguments resemble the kind of arguments trotted out about Limbaugh and “talk radio” in the early 1990’s. Now here in 2009 we know just how uninformed and bad the news you are getting is. So naturally those of us who spend time listening to talk radio and news find it funny you’re about two decades years behind in yours.

    As long as you are unembarrassed to keep posting debunked arguments, some of the more informed posters about here will be amused. To say the least. In fact seems to illustrate what "brainwashed" actually means.

    Love,
    Sir Loin

    I occasionally catch his show on the radio if I'm in the car at the wrong time of day and just listening to him blather on about his "talent on loan from God" just makes me more convinced that God, if he exists, is a completely talentless hack.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    He's a neo-conservative. Conservativism is something the Republican party abandoned back in the late 1970s.

    Only in the sense that Limbaugh wouldn't stop his own self-masturbatory nonsense long enough to let Obama get a word in edgewise. Limbaugh is the #1 party koolade drinker, anything that falls outside of his extremely narrow view of reality simply doesn't exist as far as he's concerned.

    Generalities and ambiguity is not pointing out how he is not a conservative.


    How is he a neocon?

    What does this have to do with anything? He's nothing but a blowhard lying and misinforming jerk. So he makes a gazillion (none of it comes from me, that's for sure!). Does that make him more informed than all others?

    Then do the same thing with the so called “influence” of Moore and Springer and compare them to Limbaugh’s. I won’t hold my breath waiting for you to show up and declare you have now educated yourself on this matter and won’t be caught making such specious claims in the future.
    Influence? All I wrote was that Moore is the king of docs (no one comes close to reeling in the money that he has) and that Springer was the king of talk show for many, many years. Are you going to deny this?
    So, in your eyes, does that make their work worthy because of their revenue and popularity? It doesn't with me.

    In the other Limbaugh thread, you never showed up to address or acknowledge how specious your comments were.


    I don't reply to posts that are not respectful. Take a look at what you wrote. I just jumped ship because I didn't want to deal, if you want the honest truth.

    Maybe you should or maybe you should step boldly into 2009 and take a look at the demographic data related to your stated “concerns” about the “news” talk radio listeners are getting and who they are. You see your arguments resemble the kind of arguments trotted out about Limbaugh and “talk radio” in the early 1990’s. Now here in 2009 we know just how uninformed and bad the news you are getting is. So naturally those of us who spend time listening to talk radio and news find it funny your about 20 years behind in yours.
    You lost me here.
