    The only time I ever hear Rush speak is when someone on MSNBC plays a clip of him so they can gripe about it.  He isn't even a person to me, really.  So, when I hear people complain about him I think, "So, there's this guy on AM radio (AM!  They still make that?!) and he's a lying jerk-face?  Who cares?!"

    Apparently rustic hayseeds like him, but I don't go out of my way to find out what they think either.

      that he has 20 million listeners!

      •  No way... (0+ / 0-)

        First off...how would you measure how many people were listening to any given AM station at any given time.  There are ways to estimate it through random sampling, but still there's no way to "know."

        Second, it appears that this 20 million number is just something made up by Rush himselfsomething made up by Rush himself

        •  um, it's true (0+ / 0-)

          however they measure it. His paycheck reflects a HUGE base of listeners.  He has more money than God.

            being a propaganda mouthpiece.
            Due to deregulation, three corporations own the majority of the radio outlets in the U.S.

            I think the fact that Rush is plastered all over the radio is due to that, rather than popularity.

            C'mon the guy stuffed so much Hillbilly Heroin down his fat gullet that he lost his hearing.
            It's also pretty obvious by now he is not your average American family man.

            I think the little escapade in the Dominican Republic and his 'heart problem' in Hawaii show he is not Mr. American values. Who was he with in Hawaii?
            No wife or girlfriend was present.
            Who spends the Christmas Holidays alone on vacation?
            He was up to something, but the media once again gives him a pass.
            If his name was Al Gore he would have been hounded, stalked and crucified by the corporate media by now.

            I'm not convinced that Middle America is infatuated by a drug addicted (synthetic heroin at that) carnival barker who even the most gullible can see by now is a fraud when it comes to his 'Middle American values'.
            He needs to come up with a fake family to rehabilitate his image and that would probably involve artificial insemination of that phony "wife" of his. Too risky and at this point he's a little long in the tooth to try to pass himself off as a family man.

            I think his audience and paycheck, although sizable are  probably much exaggerated by the media propaganda machine.
            Only the willfully ignorant cannot see Rush for the fraud that he is at this point.

            he stinking rich for merely lying.
