I can't quite explain it, but Rush almost seems to be getting board with the show. Has he made it through an entire month without having to day time off? Maybe he has, but it just doesn't seem like it.
I guess this is why I'm Levin is becoming my “go to” show the past few months. Sad.
My guess is that Rush’s contract says he has to take a certain amount of time off.
His voice has become more and more hoarse. If his voice is to last he has to take time off.
It's not just you. I don't think there's any doubt that Rush has lost the passion for what he does. Per my observations (and I've been listening to him for well over a decade), he's simply 'phoning it in' nowadays. He gets most of his material straight off Drudge, and ignores or pays lip service to the most structurally important stories of the day.
Like most conservative talkers, he's completely missed the fact that the center-right in this country is now in a state of quiet rebellion, and that they're like a dry prairie, just primed for the right spark to ignite.
No, they're still stuck in the 'business as usual' mode of partisan politics. They don't seem to have noticed that we're nearly on the verge of another revolution in this country. Even as the pillars that support our once mighty republic are crumbling all around them, they sit in their electronic ivory towers pontificating about everything but what truly matters.
“Maybe it’s just me, but it seems like rush has been taking more and more time off from the show.”
Maybe happy marriage and enjoying the golf, the cigar, etc.
Still, I miss him a lot lately, too.
