    Is Rush Limbaugh a "conservative giant?"

    Rep. Phil Gingrey called Rush "a conservative giant and one of the 'voices of the conservative movement's conscience.'"

    Do you agree with Rep. Phil Gingrey?

    At best, he is a conservative entertainer, if one is desperate for this "kind of stuff".

    Yes, he is giant. I'll guess 400 lbs.

    Seriously though, I think to many he is. This is evidenced by the lack of criticism of him from his political allies. Gringey's grovelling sure makes it appear that way.

    He's a type of man who wouldn't fair well in Congress, but still likes to hear himself talk. I've been in the radio business. You have no idea how much of a personality has to be created in order to make every a smidgen of profit. However, I think Limbaugh is the real deal when it comes to Conservative lunatics.

    He has the right amount of hate, grandiose personality, die hard supporters and detractors to make me believe that for better or worse, he will be viewed as one of the biggest conservatives of his generation. Like a Goldwater; insane maniac one year, ahead of the curve the next.

    Limbaugh is no where near Goldwater. Goldwater was able to weather, and thrive in politics. Limbaugh wouldn't last a second in Congress.

    20 million listeners a week, and such a giant that Obama can't stop talking about him?


    Yep, a giant.

    Limbaugh is a legend in his own mind, just listen to him and he can't stop talking about how wonderful he is. He's more of a laughing stock than anything else.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
