VDH reminds us why Rush rules.

– Wiccapundit

I’ve been listening to Rush Limbaugh since the late 1980’s, long before “talk radio” was a term of derision.  Victor Davis Hanson, in a recent essay, reminds us why Rush is at the top of the pile, and remains so:

I wouldn’t last one hour on the air. How does one for 20 years comment three hours per day on current events, earn an audience of 20 million, have no insider contacts with the DC-NY ruling class, come out of the Midwest, fend off rivals and emulators yearly, and combine voice imitations, bombast, astute and incisive analysis, parody — all ad hoc? No one else can do it; those that have tried, from O’Reilly to Air America, proved that well enough. It would require a Don Rickles, Charles Krauthammer, Rich Little, William F. Buckley, George Will, etc. all in one. The ignorant write off Limbaugh as a overweight demagogue; the not so ignorant conclude that he is a genius of sorts that figured out the myriad of hypocrisies of the liberal cultural elite and created an entire industry ex nihilo at their expense.

That pretty much sums it up.

    “Overweight demagogue”…that’d be Michael Moore. Ha!

    If you piss liberals off, you are doing SOMETHING right!!

    You got this one right, brother. Rush gets nowhere near his dues. I don’t agree with him all the time, as he has been proven to only be right ninety-seven percent of the time (you won’t get that unless you’re an old school dittohead).

    In any case, thanks for recognizing the great Maha-Rushie.
