No, I do not jest...
And I think that Rush would be the first to admit this if he is as honest as he has come across in the past. He knows he BLEW it big time, he knows he risked his life, his reputation, his marriage, and that BY THE GRACE of GOD, he may just have been spared.
He is smart enough to know that without his audience, he does not exist, he has no POWER. One does not innately attain power, it is given or assigned by his fellow humans. His claim to credibility is now on the line, as he admits he has lived a LIE for YEARS....this has no small impact on THINKING people.....
He knows that he may not get a second chance.....ask him.
Oh, and while I'm in the mood to write, I have to add:
Right now the LAST thing Rush needs is ass kissing yes-people telling him what he wants to hear.
He needs to be supported with the TRUTH...Encouraged to take the difficult route rather than the easy way out he has chosen for years...
He has been a glutton, unable to say no to his insatiable beast within.
Now, everyday he must say NO to himself..not easy for a spoiled, entitled individual. His intelligence can assist in his salvation.
He knows he BLEW it big time, he knows he risked his life, his reputation, his marriage, and that BY THE GRACE of GOD, he may just have been spared.
Can't disagree with that.
However, I've never thought Rush was perfect. Which may be why his prescription pain medicine addiction didn't render me squirrelly the way it did other people.
His political opinion is of value to me and millions of other like-minded folks. Does that make us unthinking? Nah, it just means we like his show, not to mention Rush as a person. It's funny how that so angers some.
