Rush not only revived conservatism, he revived A.M. radio. As each of our names are called, we have to take that final bow at the footlights, and hopefully we'll have left the world a little spicier from the salt we are called to be. Am very glad to have been able to listen to Rush for over 25 years. His analysis lays bare the false words we so often hear in other venues.
Only one guy that I can think of that has the penetrating understanding Rush commands, and that is Bill Whittle. Truth always needs a voice.

“Rush not only revived conservatism, he revived A.M. radio”
Reviving AM radio, definitely.
Reviving conservatism? No.
Conservatives managed to elect Ronald Reagan without anyone having ever heard of a Rush Limbaugh. The people who promoted conservatism and paved the way for Reagan’s election were writers. The only national radio voice would arguably have been Paul Harvey.
What Rush did was create an entertaining pop-conservative show that for years uncritically served the goals of Bush Republicans. And there was plenty in it that wasn’t conservative at all.
