    ... on the self-deprecating humor.  

    You'll never see that kind of humor from Rush. Why? He's too insecure. His ego is too fragile to ever portray HIMSELF as a fool. He has to be RIGHT, he has to be unchallenged, he cannot entertain doubts about his own righteousness -- that would be like admitting he has weaknesses and flaws, which is anathema to his concept (or at least his portrayal) of what a Real Man(tm) is.  

    It takes a certain comfort with one's own frailties and self-image to be able to crack jokes about them.

    Rush spends entirely too much mental energy denying he has any such frailties.... despite all evidence to the contrary.... to joke about them.
