Rush has one of the best memories around. If he doesn't remember something it is because it is not that important to him.
I would go further and say anyone who can't remember the first name of jim’s son is not much of a freeper. There is no way someone can spend even a minimum amount of time around here and not know those things. Again - I am not saying rush is a RINO. I am just saying he is not one of us.
Your replies don’t seem very connected to the content of my posts to which you’re replying, so it’s not exactly easy to try to interact with you.
My original post you took issue with was me saying that Rush has a fondness and affection for FR and for Jim.
Now it seems you want to argue whether or not Rush is a FReeper? And your requirement for what constitutes a FReeper is someone who knows the first name of JimRob’s son? Did you mean his son John, or his son Chris? If that’s your criteria for what constitutes a FReeper, I’ll politely disagree with you based on my own personal real life knowledge of a few monthly donors, regular lurkers and sometime contributors who I can guarantee don’t know the first name of either of Jim’s sons. But that’s irrelevant anyway because I didn’t see anyone, least of all me, claim that Rush is a FReeper. Just you arguing that he’s not.
As for Rush not being able to retrieve someone’s last name from his memory banks being an indication to you that he doesn’t have fondness and affection for FR and Jim, again I’ll politely disagree with you. That would be based on my own 15+ year history of being a regular listener to Rush’s show. As I said previously, I’ve OFTEN heard him have trouble recalling someone’s name off the top of his head (as recently as just yesterday a couple of times in fact).
As far as Rush being VERY familiar with FR, and having spoken of it a number of times over the years, including today, with fondness and affection, that’s just a fact.
