Glad to see I wasn’t the only one nervous about it!
This is not about Rush. People miss the point, it’s shifting the focus away from what they want to pas in Congress, it’s also designed to make Rush a Pariah and an excuse for passing ridiculous hate legislation as the left has done everywhere else. This is about getting total dominating control of the media and insuring a dumb public that will voe for them no matter what.

If you think St. Oprah is well liked outside her listeners, you have another thing coming. The two or three of us that don’t watch her (just kidding) have nothing but amusement mixed with scorn for the brainless spoiled harpy.
I sent my email to the Dimms. Asked big brother to leave Rush alone and focus on the biggest pile of pork ever to hit the beltway.
Rush Derangement Syndrome.
The liberal notion that people vote for conservatives and think in conservative ways solely because of Rush Limbaugh would not explain how Ronald Reagan beat Jimmy Carter and Walter Mondale.
There is a simpler explanation. Liberals can't stand being ridiculed and made fun of. They listen to Rush more than conservatives and Republicans do. Deep down they know that much of what he says has some truth to it. Rush lands some pretty good shots on liberals. The imitations of Clinton and Paul Shanklin's songs remind them just how seedy their liberal program has been and how creey the liberal leaders are.
Liberals want to believe that no one could possibly be conservative for rational reasons. So they perpetuate the fantasy that Rush Limbaugh causes conservatism. It's a bogeyman theory. This relieves them of the more complicated process of examining how crazy and nutty liberals are and why people really do not like liberals or liberalism.
The liberals who actually call in to argue with or heckle Rush are good examples of Rush Derangement Syndrome. It's easier for them to focus on Rush and their anger about his show than to remember how creepy the Clintons were, how odd Gore and Kerry were, and that liberal policies drive the country deeper into debt.
In the 1970s it was even easier for them because they had their own Alinskian TV show in which Archie Bunker played the role of the unattractive conservative scapegoat. Deep down they enjoy having Limbaugh as a scapegoat to blame and one who absolves them from any deeper rational thoughts or self-examination. If they ever succeeded in having Limbaugh driven off the air they would have to invent a new one. Liberals always need an Elmer Gantry, Huey Long, Jesse Helms, Tom DeLay, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson or Limbaugh to point to as an unattractive example of what they don't like. It is part of their Manichean worldview.
They need the stereotype of the conservative philistine or armchair bigot with weight problems to make them feel better about themselves as they attempt to bankrupt the country and depopulate the planet,
sometimes with a lecherous hillbilly at the helm who is an even more unattractive stereotype for whom they put on their liberal beer goggles. They have no problem indulging the liberal philistines, nutjobs, or lunatic.
And that's why Limbaugh stays in business. It's a symbiotic relationship.
Thanks for the ping!
“and I beg to differ on his likability.”
It’s just my experience, I have had so many people say “Oh I don’t like that guy” and they are not politically engaged people very much, maybe leaning conservative. If they took the time to listen, they would change views I am sure.
But Rush has a bit of humorous bluster that some people are put off by if they take it serious and do not listen long enough to “get it”.
Yes, it drives me to fits.
We have others that make the same conservative case though in different styles, I expect their number will grow during the Obama admin.
They want to take away our rights to freely express ourselves.
They will not succeed.
OH I cannot stand her.
I put her below pond scum on my list.
But the ordinary type of person, especially woman will watch her. My wife is pretty damn conservative, but she will watch her sometimes, “because of the guests” or some damn thing. The MSM has demonized Rush too, so some people have a negative impression without listening.
Of course these liberals want to shut down as many avenues as possible that proscribe to the conservative viewpoints. These liberals want to run everything, tell you how to live, what to eat, what to drive and how to think and they will silence or attack anybody who disagrees with them. In other words, these liberals are nothing but a bunch of communists who want to brainwash everybody.
Don't forget the GOP. They told Rush to back off too.
"Would this qualify as trying to 'fix the target', polarize the audience? This 'petition' is aimed as much at the liberal lost as it is at Rush; fixing Rush and his daily rhetoric as the voice of extremism against the chosen one...This is a calculated step right out of Rules For Radicals."

Yes. They are using the Alinsky tactics from his Community Organizing Street Agitation 101 - Rules for Radicals. Limbaugh is the target because of the emotional reaction he causes in liberals. Now that Bush and Cheney are gone, Rush is the liberals' bogeyman.
I replied “What is Barry Hussein afraid of? when will we start wearing the obamanazi armbands”
zig heil soetoro; will we get a subsidy/bailout for jackboots?
Not since Nixon went after Jack Anderson have we seen this kind of thing. Aren't Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews enough to keep Obama worshipped and slobbered over?
