Rush Limbaugh

Guest Author - Stacy Wiegman

Rush Limbaugh is vilified by the left regularly. The left also likes to try to paint Limbaugh's comments as those of all Republicans, which is a very erroneous generalization. One thing Limbaugh does very well is rile Democrats, and for that reason, I like him.

It cracks me up when Democrats get worked up about comments he makes. They just don't seem to realize that he achieves his goal when they do. There is an old saying about being hated is better than being ignored. The more upset they get, the more they talk about him, and the more notoriety he achieves.

I don't agree with everything he says. Unlike the Democrats, I know that Rush Limbaugh is not the spokesman for the Republican Party. He is a Republican, true, but he does not represent the party anymore than I do or anybody else who professes to be a Republican.

Democrats like to believe that they belong to the party of diversity and that all Republicans are heartless and uncaring, but that is false. There is great diversity within the Republican party, too, and not everyone is a fan of Rush Limbaugh.

That being said, I agree with a lot of his comments, like his discussion on how America has turned into a "nation of sponges waiting to be told what to do next." He discussed how Americans have embraced mediocrity and victimization, and I thought it was very true. It wasn't about politics at all.

That's where he is strongest and yet those are the comments that the Democrats choose to ignore because it doesn't fit with their demonization of him. Limbaugh is a very smart man who likes to shake things up, but because he does go "over the top" at times, his really astute observations of our nation don't always get the attention they deserve.

I have never met Limbaugh, but based on what I've read and heard of his show, he cares deeply about this country. I think some of his comments are intended to spark fires, but the media and the left fall for it every time. It's like pretending to throw a bone and the dog goes running--you would think they would figure it out. I, for one, don't mind some of the outrageous things he says because he gets people talking and thinking, and this country needs to do a lot more thinking.
