Good News About Our Right Wing King

Rush Limbaugh to get $38M a year for next 8 years

Good news everyone - Our King has gotten his contract renewed so we will continue to be able to receive talking points for the next 8 years.

Not only is he a wise King, but a very generous one too. He is serving for a mere $38 million per year.

(BTW, for any liberal reading this, please keep in mind that this post is tongue in cheek - the conservatives will already know it). Big smile

Right on CVC, darn good news. Makes me happy for the big guy that bastion of positivity and honesty he is. What a generous king he is to rule for such a paltry sum.

Long live the King!

(Please keep in mind this post is also tongue in cheek)

Cheers lol

Good News About Our Right Wing King

It's just too bad that the liberal's can't get anyone to compete with him. Love him or hate him, the Democrats can't find anyone comparable no matter how hard they try. The left winger's are even trying to pass legislation (typical) to keep him quiet before elections.

Honestly, he only mildly annoys me.

Why do you think O'Reilly has been the #1 cable news show for 7 years in a row?.....because they can't find anyone to compete.

The competition is lacking what it takes. They just can't make the cut.

I think it's just, because the folks on the right have the ability to look at substance and understand voting records.

If you mean the Democrats can't find someone who so willingly will lie, slander, and spread hateful propoganda, you are certainly right. I wouldn't want or need a loudmouthed blowhard like either of those two clowns talking for me.

Really now what did you think when O'reilly had to pay all that money for sexual harrasment after he preached against perverts so hard? Or Rush being a drug addict after all his unsympathetic comments about others being addicted to drugs. I just thought more hypocrisy from the self appointed immoral majority myself.

But, no you go on believing your self righteous hyperbole about understanding 'substance'.

I think people here were mostly making fun of Limbaugh and O'Reilly, and I think most would at least partly agree that they can be overly critical and judgmental. But, I think you're getting judgmental yourself when you start talking about people's hypocrisy and "self righteous hyperbole."

By the way though, I've appreciated you stepping up on political issues on this forum. I lean more to the right, but I agree with you that political discussion here has been over-simplified and monotonous. It's nice to have the other side represented.

I hear you and appreciate your input. I will do my best to withhold from my own judgement and stick to actual opinion and views.

Thanks!

I read an article about Rush's new contract and was surprised to learn that his radio show has the largest following in raw numbers only rivaled by Howard Stern. Some 20 million tune in, which is stunning to me, Whelland is right liberals do not have anything quite like it.

unless you have ever heart tom hartman, according to him he has beat rush for the last 2 years. The only thing I can think of is that maybe people accidently tune in to his show and then fall asleep. Ben steins voice is far more exciting. If you think about it though, rush is working for the low price of $38 million a year while Howard stern is making about $100 million a year. Thats a bargain. I will say that I do enjoy howard on the way to work each morning though.

Here we go again, SoCo...put up or shut up. If you're going to accuse Limbaugh and O'Reilly of "willingly lying," let's see the evidence of that statement. And I'm not talking about something paraphrased or what someone else claimed they said. If you're going to label them as liars, I'd like to see verifiable quotes to back that statement.

As far as drug addiction goes, the guy got hooked on highly addictive pain meds after a chronic injury -- which I've seen happen to some very good people. That's a whole lot different than a crack addict or meth head running around abusing illegal recreational drugs (or, for that matter, a US Senator killing his mistress in a DUI and then leaving her body trapped underwater in the car for hours before reporting it). It's also worth noting that he admitted he had a problem and paid a price in shame for it. That's far better in my mind than all of those high profile cases on the left who get in trouble and are sainted for it.

You want to talk hypocrisy? How about the left treating every Democrat DUI and addiction as some sort of tragic event that merits pity and compassion, but then attacking Republicans as personal failures? How about defending their sexual indiscretions as "personal matters" that are off limits and irrelevant, but then going after Larry Craig? How about them screaming about alleged Republican corruption, but then circling the wagons behind one of their own that gets caught with stacks of cash in his freezer?

The difference is that the right wing is at least consistent in its condemnation. You won't find them attacking the likes of Bill Clinton or William Jefferson one day and then lining up behind Larry Craig or Duke Cunningham defending them the next.

It is interesting in that I agree that Rush leans right, but I view O'Reilly as being very balanced.

He doesn't lean right or left.

I like emails from his viewer who on the same subject will criticize him for being conservative and another for being liberal. Perception is a big factor I suppose.
