Rush Limbaugh is certainly a leader of the conservative party or movement.
If the Repulican Party would embrace the conservative love and emotions that Reagan made they would prove the fact that conservativism is the best for all.
When Limbaugh spoke at the NRA convention they had two add two more halls as it was sold out over and over.
Just because he draws a crowd doesn't mean he's a leader of the Republican party. Most top ranked entertainers will draw crowds.
The remark regarding his leadership of your party wasn't based on drawing crowds. Rather it was elected repub officials groveling for his forgiveness when they angered him.
For me it's neither here nor there. I think he's a fat gluttonous, possibly pedo, hypocrite, loudmouth who's made a career out of inflaming people for his monetary gain. Do, I think he should be silenced? No, at all. Let those who like what he's serving feed at his trough. Makes no difference to me but it won't stop me from commenting on my view of him when compelled to.
