I wasn't suggesting Plante should replace Rush---only that Plante is that unique. Very different but just as unique and brilliant.
However, Rush isn't ready to retire.
In the meantime, there is a thread for Hannity's radio show posted on FR every day. It rarely ever even has ONE post.
What does that tell us?
Hannity has good "gets," but he is a terrible interviewer. I don't know what Hannity's ratings are for his radio show, but I wouldn't miss Hannity if Ingraham filled his slot.
I rarely listen to either of them.

I never was a Hannity fan...Don’t think I really liked/believed that Hannity/Colmes schtick which, I would imagine, came about because of the ‘popularity’ of Madlin/Carville - (supposedly) oil and water blending.
I go back to WMAL/Rush during the GHWB I campaign when ‘they’ were accusing Bush of being a wimp.
I kind of lost ‘respect’ for Rush over the OXY thing and I think he ‘changed’ with his 1st marriage...maybe I(we) expected him to continue the passion of the show back when he ‘claimed’ they forced him to take vacations.
As of today, I sometimes don’t remember to cut Rush on, and the only thing that keeps me close is the Plante show, mainly because he follows him.
I’ve tired of Hannity, particularly his talking over folks he disagrees with. I’ve begun listing to Andy Parks, who use to be on with Fred Grandy on the WMAL morning drive, in the afternoons on the way home. He is on WTNT, 730 AM.
