marty D BS: Rush Limbaugh (113* d) RE: BS: Rush Limbaugh 09 Oct 01


Good grief, how ugly so many Mudcat threads get so quickly these days.

I've had a go at Doug a couple of times here regarding Rush, Jay Leno, Pat Robertson, Letterman etc. but I always thought it was a couple of decent guys with differing political views, sparring. Some of you now make this dynamic impossible. What's the point of talking, when some only know screaming?

This could have been an INTERESTING discussion about the cochlear implants, and why there is so much opposition to it. Even more interesting because one of our members claims to be directly connected with it. But why bother, with an attitude like that?

Rush (who I couldn't disagree MORE with) sees himself as a comedian and entertainer (his own words) as well as a political commentator, and his many lines like "talent on loan from God" etc. are his way of being funny! Sure it's bombast, but it's his 'schtick', and to take it as serious is silly in my view.

I guess if this thread was titled "talk radio guy loses hearing" it might have had less vitriol.
