Gone but not forgotten - Rush Limbaugh

Today is a sad day indeed.  Via Breitbart:

Conservative radio legend Rush Limbaugh died Wednesday morning at the age of 70 following a battle with lung cancer, his wife Kathryn Limbaugh announced at the beginning of his radio program.

“It is with profound sadness I must share with you directly that our beloved Rush, my wonderful husband, passed away this morning due to complications from lung cancer,” Katheryn announced.

“Rush will forever be the greatest of all time, she added.

Limbaugh, host of The Rush Limbaugh Show for 32 years, had been battling Stage 4 lung cancer since January 2020. Just days after his announcement, Limbaugh was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Trump during the State of the Union. “Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country,” Trump told the radio host during the address.

Rush Limbaugh was one of my heroes.  While I have always been conservative since I was about 12 years old, Rush Limbaugh made me realize a lot of things since I started listening in 1989. He awoke me to the climate change hoax for example.  He made me think about things, I mean think critically and not just accept 'facts' without thinking what they really mean. He made me realize that there is a narrative behind the news, no matter who provided the news.  He was insightful and entertaining at the same time.

There are lots of potential heirs but there will never be another Rush. He was truly great and his loss will be felt for a long time.


  1. We have lost a great American and Patriot. but more than that, we've lost someone who one could consider the conscience of our country. He believed in what made this country great and in turn pointed out the idiocy and worse of these people who not only spout hatred and more towards our country but in fact hate it and the fundementals it was founded on. And one point to all the haters out ther, especially to those who never bothered to even listen to him or his show.

    Rush always made the point of telling his listeners "don't just listen to me and take my word as gospel! Check out the facts, educate yourself as to the realities of the situation and not just on what I say"

    I heard him say that many times (believe it or nit, Glen Beck always did that also). So how bad can someone really be who opines then turns and tells all to study it their selves then make what is hopefully a learned decision.

    May he rest in peace and let me say Thank You Rush!
