    RUSH: I want you to hear Brit Hume. This was last night on The Kelly File. This is Brit Hume explaining why mainstream Republicans like him will not be with Ted Cruz. They just can't see supporting Ted Cruz. HUME: Ted Cruz has not won any friends among mainstream Republicans by his choice of tactics. There's a significant number of Republicans out there who believe -- and I'm not making this up -- that the government shutdown did not hurt the Republican Party, but actually helped it win the majority. Now, obviously I don't think that's so, but those are...

    Talk radio veteran Darryl Parks is a harsh critic of how the format continues to lose touch with most of the radio audience who aren’t white male baby boomers. In a new post this week he takes aim at Rush Limbaugh, describing the leading conservative talk host’s “fall into oblivion.”Parks notes that Limbaugh’s program is sinking in the ratings in New York and Los Angeles and has been shuttled off to lower ranked stations. Now it’s rumored– as first reported by Robert Feder–that his Chicago affiliate is preparing to dump ol’ Rushbo, too. A spokeswoman for WLS-AM owner Culumus Media has denied that rumor, though Parks...

    The Office of the Inspector General of the State Department found in its latest investigation that Clinton aides had “created an appearance of undue influence and favoritism” in a number of cases including that of Ambassador Howard Gutman. The investigation is largely a whitewash. There is no mention of the fact that one whistleblower related to the case, Richard Higbie, had his emails deleted by a hacker. Or that the main whistleblower, Aurelia Fedenisn, was harassed at home and had her law firm burgled.It goes almost without saying that Richard Nixon went down for much less than that.There is also...

    Heard on Rush Limbaugh Show a few minutes ago.  Rush mentioned the ban on  SS109 and M855 ammunition being pushed by the Obama administration.  Rush said that when people began buying ammunition two years ago, the left said that they were kooks.  Now they have been proven to be correct. Rush did say that the ban was on specific ammunition, but that people should not be fooled.  They want to go after all ammunition, and they have to start someplace. Rush is not a "gun guy"; but he is a far sighted political thinker, and he can see the...

    RUSH: Here we are at what many people think is the most depressing day of the year, Blue Monday. And, no, it's got nothing to do with Martin Luther King Day. By the way, I may be engaged in one of the greatest career risks ever taken. I mean, given all this controversy out in Hollywood, showing up here on Martin Luther King Day could be seen as an act of disrespect. What I'll do is just fall back on the idea I had no idea, the staff didn't tell me again that this was a celebrated Monday holiday, and...

    RUSH: You know me, folks, I always try to avoid sounding like a know-it-all, which is very hard to do, because I do know it all, and I always try not to sound that way because I know it -- well, it's not a character trait that people admire. People resent know-it-alls. People resent others that are so sure of themselves, because you're not supposed to be that sure of yourself. There's so much gray area out there, compounded by feelings, that it's considered unreal to be in touch with what you really think. But I always am. And I'm...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Lots to do here on Open Line Friday, Rush Limbaugh. Determined to be in a good mood, folks. Determined to be happy. Determined to do everything I can to enjoy life. And if that makes some of you think I'm out of touch, so be it. I've been dealing with that complaint for 27 years. Over and over again I've heard that, "You're out of touch, Rush, you're losing touch with what it's like to really be in America." No, I'm not. Never have lost touch, never will lose touch. But it doesn't mean that you can't...

    RUSH: What incredible past six hours or so. Two guys, the two terrorists, the Karachi brothers or whatever their names are, they're dead now, the hostages are safe. It's hard to put this in perspective. No, no. It actually is very easy to put it in perspective, but when you put it in proper perspective, you run the risk of being accused of being insensitive. Stop and think of what's happened here. Two people, two guys, two terrorists did this. Twelve people are dead, there's no question. It's a major, major terror event. But look at how two people brought...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Paul. Great to have you, sir. Thank you for waiting and hello. CALLER: Yeah, great to speak with you, too, Rush. Most Republicans agree that Boehner has to go. He not only voted for the cromnibus that funded Obama's illegal activities until next October, he also negotiated behind closed doors and then threw it on the clerk's desk 48 hours before the vote so nobody else had a chance to see what was in it. So he's disgraced himself. He's got to go. The question is who should replace him.And two men...

Some people really want Idris Elba to become the next James Bond!Although Daniel Craig is still signed on for the job, many in and out of Hollywood have spoken out about the possible casting choice. Yes, we're looking at you Rush Limbaugh.But regardless of what you've seen, heard or read, Elba himself has something to say about the speculation and it may not be what you were expecting."Isn't 007 supposed to handsome?" he tweeted from his car Saturday morning while rocking a beanie and a scruffy beard.

    RUSH: I'm looking at the Stack of Stuff and there's some lighthearted stuff in here, but even the lighthearted stuff has an edge to it. And it's really incredible. I remember the first five years of this program, maybe the first ten, the month of December there was hardly any controversy, hardly any hard-hitting news. I mean, there might have been exceptions, but we just don't have any let-up. There is not a let-up in the intensity of the news. Here we are two days before Christmas, and we're still dealing with chaos, and we're dealing with crisis one after...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I've been thinking about how this has happened. The fact that the Republican leadership is throwing in with the Democrat leadership on amnesty and Obamacare and take your pick of issues. And, you know, you and I, folks, have discussed and theorized for a long time, and it has become obvious -- and we've talked about this -- that the GOP agrees with Obama on amnesty because they, too, see a pool of potential new voters. And they also think that they've got a supporter for the Hispanic vote. You know the drill. But it turns out...

    RUSH: Yesterday we made mention of the fact that Barack Obama was running around talking about the fact that one time, that time long ago, he was insulted that somebody thought he was a valet. Not when he was president. Over seven years ago, somebody thought he was a valet, and that meant the United States was racist. That meant that he had a legitimate chip on his shoulder, and his wife was running around saying (summarized), "Yeah, I went into Target, and I was first lady. Now, I was in disguise, but I went into Target and somebody asked...

This afternoon in Washington on the Senate floor. You've heard, by the way -- I don't remember who said it, but -- it's been said in recent days that if women were running this show, none of this would have happened. There wouldn't have been a shutdown. I think the... (interruption) (SNIP) RUSH: I am reminded of Jimmy Carter, who said once that he learned everything about nuclear warfare from...

    RUSH: Oh, folks, I have got to tell you, I interviewed Dr. Thomas Sowell yesterday afternoon, after the program for the next issue of The Limbaugh Letter. Now, normally I would tease you with what he said as a means of hyping the purchase of subscriptions, but because I don't look at you people as pockets and dollar signs, I'm gonna tell you this. I started off by asking him, "Dr. Sowell, you and I and countless others have been chronicling the deterioration of American culture, our society, and our politics, in my case, for 25 years. We just keep...

    From Arizona: The Pima County Board of Supervisors will vote later this month on a measure to ban smokers from being hired by their local government. Those smokers who already work for the government will face a 30 percent health-insurance surcharge. Pima County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry says the county will save lots of money if employees who smoke can be “replaced” over time with healthier workers. Huckelberry says this is all being done for the taxpayers: “Anything we can do to reduce [insurance] cost is beneficial.” said ol'Huck. You Pima County government workers who smoke had better beware. There’s a...
