He was a big, big, powerful, mean dude, something like Frank Ataturk. I don't know what his first name was. Anyway, do you know that the guy that runs Turkey now, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, although it's not pronounced that way. I've only heard Erdogan pronounced correctly once, and I don't remember how.

    Probably no one has earned more leeway from conservative voters and pundits than Rush Limbaugh.

When I think about Rush’s last year or so on air, I’m reminded of Marshall Phillipe Petain, one of the most intriguing figures of the twentieth century. Without Petain, the French might not have prevailed over the Germans at...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: There's a story here at "Poll: Trump Up to 60 Percent in New York." I wonder why this is. "Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a whopping 43-point lead in New York, according to a new poll." This is a NY1/Baruch College survey that was released late yesterday. Sixty percent support. Kasich in second place with 17%. And Ted Cruz at 14%. Ted Cruz in third place in all of the New York polls. Baruch College pollster Mickey Blum said Trump is just "killing" it. "This could really be his road to getting enough to win...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Look, here's what you have to know here if you want to be able to read this NBC story and understand it. You have to understand that the Republican Party, the GOP, the RNC, whoever. They structured -- and they do it every year; they change the primary process. They change a number of things about it, based on what went wrong the previous year. And the previous year is four years ago, and they wrote rules four years ago to stop somebody like Ron Paul. Okay, so those rules are still in place, and they're going...

    Rush ^ | April 8, 2016 | Rush Limbaugh
    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: On the Democrat side. I thought it was only the Trump rallies that had protesters, but it turns out Bill Clinton is drawing protesters. He's out there stumping for Hillary. You know people are starting to ask, with some of the stuff Clinton is saying. They really are. I mean, is demanding that Hillary fire him. They say, "We know that she can't divorce him, but she should fire him." Why can't she divorce him? Why can't she? I ask it rhetorically. She's stuck with the guy, and the things he's doing are making people think...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Mark in Orlando. It's great to have you. You are first today. Welcome to the program. CALLER: Thank you very much, sir. I appreciate your taking my phone call. RUSH: Yes, sir. CALLER: Yes, I would just like to praise you, if I may. I think that your handling of the Cruz and Trump situation has just been magnificent. I think you've been getting a lot of negative feedback which, truth be told, just doesn't make any sense whatsoever. I mean, I think that we all understand that you're the grandfather of conservatism. We all understand that...
  • This Story Tells Us Exactly What's Wrong with the Republican Party

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: See, this is exactly it. Right here. This is exactly the kind of thing that the Republican Party is doing. They're hammering nails in its own coffin. And at one time, I could have been a member of the establishment. They were putting the full-court press on me, but I resisted, instinctively. I was thinking the other day how easily they could have owned me, way back long ago when I was naive and didn't know what was going on. That's about as much as I'm gonna say, just a little tease there. But there's a little...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Okay. The Pew Research Center for the People & the Press put out this massive research product recently: "10 Demographic Trends That Are Shaping the US and the World," and, if you go into reading these with any kind of a pessimistic attitude, you would be totally within your logical bounds to conclude that the country's done, as you've known it. There's always gonna be an America. But it increasingly looks like it will be less and less like the America that was founded. There will always be a United States, we think. It starts out this...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: North Carolina has become Ground Zero in the latest iteration of the culture war, and it's absolutely absurd. We have a conservative governor in Georgia, Nathan Deal, who literally caved to the threat of economic pressure brought about by American corporate interests. The same kind of thing is happening in North Carolina where special considerations for one half of 1% of the population seem to be dominating the structuring passage of laws today, and it's all about lesbians and gays and bisexuals and transgenders and who wants to use what bathroom on a particular day of the...
  • Rush Limbaugh’s blessing of Trump is killing conservatism

    Washington Post ^ | 3/28/2016 | Michael Gerson
    If Donald Trump becomes the Republican nominee, one of the main reasons will be that many in the conservative movement found him acceptable. And one of the main reasons that many conservatives are finding Trump acceptable is that the most influential political talk radio host in history, Rush Limbaugh, has provided his blessing. Not his endorsement. Limbaugh takes pains to preserve neutrality between Trump and Ted Cruz, whom he describes as the obvious choice “if conservatism is the dominating factor in how you vote.” But Limbaugh has also consistently defended Trump as a legitimate choice for those whose dominating factor...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Politico story: "Insiders to Trump: No Majority, No Nomination -- Republicans say it's 1,237 delegates or bust for Donald Trump." Now, I have to tell you, before get into the details of this story, if you are interested in history, that has always been the way it is. In the primaries, you hit the number or exceed it, and the nomination is yours. If you don't hit the number, it isn't. It has never been the case. I don't think it has. I can't recall. The rules have never been changed to say that a plurality, if...

    Why do they hate Ted Cruz so much? Well, yeah, partly it's because he's conservative. But why hate that? It's more than that. It's threatening. And I'm just gonna tell you: In the case of Ted Cruz, every damned one of these people knows full well that they're not in his league in terms of IQ, in terms of intelligence, in terms of talent and ability. They can't compete with him. So they ignore him. They pretend he's not there. When they do have him on to interview him, they usually resort to tactics of intimidation or putting him down...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Going back to this John Podhoretz commentary and his attempt... This was actually from yesterday. It's a piece in Commentary magazine, and it's a very lengthy piece, and I'm just synthesizing it down to its bare essence as he attempts to explain the Trump phenomenon. I mean, many people that are not for Trump are puzzled beyond their ability to express it, why people support Trump. Some people are getting mad. Some people are taking the rejection of themselves and their ideas personally. Some people say it just doesn't make any sense no matter how they look...

    "The party has not lifted a finger to help him..." Noting that Sen. Ted Cruz has waged a zealous, uphill campaign in the shadow of other candidates the headline writers have focused upon, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh admonished the oddsmakers Friday not to write off the Texan too soon. Limbaugh was asked by a caller, "Do you think that Cruz still has an honest chance to win?" "Yeah, I do," Limbaugh said as part of his reply. "I don't think it's anywhere near over yet." Limbaugh noted that Cruz has been last in media publicity, but has soldiered...
