Default Re: Rush Limbaugh sets new deal

NY Times Sunday Magazine has a lengthy profile on El Rushbo this coming Sunday

He certainly isn't bashful about his perceived role in modern American politics

But in my heart and soul, I know I have become the intellectual engine of the conservative movement.”

And like most entertainers he has few kind words for his competitors:

Limbaugh told me he is no longer concerned about the opinions of his colleagues and rivals, and he makes no effort to disguise his contempt for most of them. Michael Savage, ranked No. 3 among talk-radio hosts by Talkers magazine? “He’s not even in my rearview mirror.” Garrison Keillor? “I don’t even know where to find NPR on the dial.”

At dinner the night before, Bill O’Reilly’s name came up, and Limbaugh expressed his opinion of the Fox cable king. He hadn’t been sure at the time that he wanted it on the record. But on second thought, “somebody’s got to say it,” he told me. “The man is Ted Baxter.”

Limbaugh does have his favorites. He admires Ann Coulter’s ability to outrage liberals. He is a fan of the columnists Camille Paglia and Thomas Sowell, both of whom he considers honest thinkers. And he is especially impressed by the essays of Christopher Hitchens. “He’s misguided sometimes, but when you read him, you finish the whole article.”

Limbaugh has a deeply conflicted attitude toward Sean Hannity, his one-time stand in and now perpetual No. 2 on the Talkers list. He speaks of the younger man with the same condescending affection that Muhammad Ali once showed Jimmy Ellis, a former sparring partner turned challenger. But he wanted me to remember who is the Greatest. “I have no competitors,” he said. “Hannity isn’t even close to me.

Rush is incredibly good at what he does and has come a long way from his days spinning platters as Jeff Christie at KQV

That is quite funny. "Ted Baxter" was hilarious.

Kind of sad that he gets that kind of contract instead of George Will, Monica Crowley, Cal Thomas, or Kathleen Parker.

Free market at work - Rush makes more money for Clear Channel than any on those writers do for their syndicators

Oh, I understand that. It's just a sad commentary on our society that Hush Bimbo makes more money than the others I listed, all of whom are far more intelligent and articulate advocates for the conservative viewpoint.
