The NOT Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Show Thread - Thursday, December 23, 2010
The EIB Network ^ | 12/23/2010 | Mark Steyn

Posted on 12/23/2010 8:18:45 AM PST by IMissPresidentReagan

AND NOW . . . amidst billowing clouds of fragrant, aromatic first- and second-hand premium cigar smoke. . . it is time for . . . that harmless, lovable little fuzz ball, the highly-trained broadcast specialist, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, from behind the golden EIB microphone, firmly ensconced in the prestigious Attila-the-Hun chair at the Limbaugh Institute of Advanced Conservative Studies, serving humanity simply by showing up, and he’s not retiring until every American agrees with him, do NOT doubt him, with shrieks of joy at the mere mention of his name (that’s Rush, for those in Rio Linda),the Mandarin of Talk Radio, with talent on loan from G-d, at the cutting-edge of societal evolution, with half his brain tied behind his back — just to make it fair, the all-knowing, all-caring, all-sensing, all-feeling, all-concerned Maha-Rushie! America’s anchorman, truth detector, and doctor of democracy. A Real Man, a living legend, a way of life. Commander in Chief of U.S. Operation Chaos. Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe. Chief of the Patriotism Police. Leader of the Conservative Movement. A Weapon of Mass Instruction. El Rushbo (a little Spanish lingo, there). He is the man who is running America (you know it and I know it). He knows the Democrats like every square inch of his glorious naked body. He is ready to do what he was born to do—that’s host. Get ready to what you were born to do—that’s listen (and post your comments on the Rush Limbaugh LIVE Radio Thread).

Chicago Board of Election Supervisors has voted unanimously that Rahm Emanuel will be on the February mayoral ballot.

Woo-hoo! Crime pays again!

Wow that’s some story. You know Mrs Walter E. Williams died from doing that very thing. Just shaking my head wow...

If you need any help on the meds you can get some from India pretty cheaply.

He’s probably the least irritating.

Maybe Rush should have Rose fill in for him one of these days.

<Oh good grief; can someone slap this chick.

Tell it, FRiend!

I love the way Steyn brought up the issues in Africa. We get precious little info on problems in African countries, so the libs all think that we’re at fault for everything, that we’re the worse people on the planet, but they need to take a look at what’s going on in these African countries and put blame and disgust where it belongs.

Steyn’s response to this lib chick was great. I wonder if she’ll go back and try to find info on the African issues or if she will turn her back on them because her real focus is not on peace and human rights, but on destroying the US.

I’m glad Mark is talking about this medical benefits for 9/11 survivors thing. It will end up being another govt. boondoggle.

No more Rush on the radio at work for a little while. I moved to an interior cubical and can't pick up the station. I'll have to depend on my Freeper Friends to let me know what is going on. No biggie, Rush has been painful to listen to lately anyway.

Had to move because of a position change. I don't count beans any more, I analyze them now. Lateraled from Systems Accountant to a Financial Management Specialist (510 to 501). This move improves my chances for a promotion later. I'm just 53, so I have a lot of years left...

I think that’s what caught my eye...

Of course, I believe it’s too early to say “It’s X or I’m not voting”...since we’ve not even had definite declarations from anyone, so I really don’t understand the hatred for for all candidates who aren’t Hunter (or Huckabee, or whomever).

I’d think there’d have to be money involved...;)

I think Duncan Hunter is a conservative; but to be a successful candidate, you do have to be able to appeal to voters, and he’s just about as dry as two week old, very burnt toast.

Personally, I don’t like this pc attitude on FR where we can’t honestly debate ALL the candidates. What we have going on now can’t be called a debate. Why is everyone afraid of differing views?

The man has had, what?, over 20 years to make a national name for himself. And he still doesn't have any visibility outside his district. Sure he has sponsored a lot of interesting military legislation, but I'm not sure what percentage of his activity has actually been enacted. Quite frankly he does have some baggage related to pushing procurements not wanted by the DOD that would benefit his constituents. I think it got worse when he was name chairman of the House Armed Services Committee. In the final analysis there just hasn't been anything outstanding about his political career.

I have no problem with that...it’s when people become so focused on one person, whether it’s Palin/Huckabee/Hunter/Pence/???? that they refuse to acknowledge someone else including those mentioned who aren’t their first choice, can do a good job too. Now, I’ll not ever say I think Huckabee can do a good job; but I like Sarah, and I’m open to anyone else, too, who meets my standards. It seems like there are some people, who refuse to see the potential flaws in their candidate, but are insistant in pointing out the flaws in everyone else. We won’t win with a purity test, and we won’t win by pouting. Instead of trying to tear someone down, as seems to be the case, and refusing to consider anyone but X won’t get conservatism advanced any quicker or a conservative message out any clearer.

I honestly don’t know a terrible lot about him, except what I’ve read on FreeRepublic. It’s rare that a Congressman (not Senator) rises to the office of the President, because many Congressman have great appeal inside their district and 0 appeal everywhere else. The problem I have with him is his endorsement of (p)hucakbee. That’s something that crosses into unforgiveable territory for me. I’ve not spent much time learning about him because even if he does decide to run, by the time the primaries reach Kentucky, he won’t be around. He and (p)huckabee seem to have a similar problem when it comes to raising $$, and reality is, you need money to run a successful campaign.

I am supporting Palin, obviously but I am not “offended” if someone wants to support Huckabee, Romney, etc. If Palin fails to garner the nomination, we may well end up with Romney, then what? I swore last time I would never vote for McCain and then I voted for McCain. My strategy now is to back my candidate to the fullest and live with the results.

Amen! I support Palin; but I’m not going to spend my time talking down all the other candidates. I do have a line in the sand that I won’t cross; but the likelihood of it coming to that is very small.
