As I recall, Levin had quadruple or maybe even 5 vessel by pass surgery, last year and Rush also had his surgery. Both seem to have undergone radical personality changes. Maybe it's related,maybe not,but there have been some studies that have shown, that post op cardiac patients have personality changes-whether it's from anoxia during the procedure or some other insult, the researchers are not sure. Rush's surgery was done,through the skull,behind his ear.Maybe these two have bonded because of their medical problems .But something is definitely up with these two.

Oddly enough, you are the 2nd person tonight to have mentioned that possibility to me. And I've heard that before about bypass patients.

It may just be coincidence that Rush went on his anti-Bush tear during the pre-summer ratings period, but I doubt it.

People generally don't tamper with a winning formula, but Rush did an about-face on several fronts simultaneously:

1. He started to become hyper-critical of Bush.

2. He made a point of dissociating himself from the Republican Party.

3. He started to be nasty to some callers who disagree with him.

I'm thinking that the EIB people maybe were starting to see some ratings numbers that made them nervous so they decided to give to the program some edge.
