Rush has only used the same three cords since Moving Pictures.

I remember his pre-Mormon days, Beck got to close to the 3rd rail of conspiracy and someone got to him.

He's as big a flake as one could imagine. ::)

I'll take Beck over Hannity anyday.

Hannity: Mr. President, what are your plans for the border wall?
President: Well Sean...
Hannity: I know, in my life, I talk about the border wall all the time.
President: Yeah, it's important, and what I'd like to do is...
Hannity: ...and another thing I do in my life...
...also, have you met my producer, Linda?
Hey Linda, say waaalk. Ain't that cute? Man, I wanna fuck her sooo bad. Anyways, thanks for the interview, Mr. President. The listeners learned alot.

Hannity IS the voice of the RNC.

Beck still worries me as his body politic has been too fluid over the past few years. Shoot I remember when O'Reilly revived him, then booted him. So much churn. I'll have to listen to see where he's at now.

Happy T-Day Weiner, hope wherever you are there's a full plate of turkey goodness waiting for ya!

Hannity in his first hour only takes a breath during commercials.  Dude needs to back off of the caffeine.  Those exchanges between him and New Joisey Linda are really sickening.  She'll make a hell of a cat lady someday.

Hannity is okay when he stays on topic but that is rare as he's too busy interrupting people to talk about himself. I get to the point that I have to turn it off.
Beck is good when he stays away from religion and all that "Love thy neighbor" stuff as I have no tolerance for antifa douchebags.

Right back at ya', brother!

I do remember a caller to the Limbaugh show back in the late 90’s telling Rush he was getting to the young’uns cause he say “Rush #1” painted on a water tower.  That one made me chuckle.

I highly recommend Dennis Prager. Positivity and great psychological and social insight with core values expressed and gently venerated.

Ever get into Glen Beck?

Now there's a chameleon. :o

I’m reading his book Miracles & Massacres right now. It’s the first of two history of America books he’s written. I posted a review of the second, Dreamers & Deceivers here which roughly covers stories from our history from about the guilded age to present day whereas the first covers from revolutionary war time up to the guilded age. Mind you, these aren’t comprehensive histories but rather selected stories. I thought Dreamers and Deceivers was very good and so far Miracles and Massacres isn’t letting me down either. I’ll drop a review of it here when I’ve finished it. I know he’s kinda backtracked in recent years and that this has pissed off many conservatives but these are very well written, entertaining and informative books. Also, his expose of George Soros back on his Fox show was a thing of beauty. Everyone should watch it.

I appreciate the book reviews. I used to listen to him back in the early 2000s and found him to be quitea bit more of a scholar than an ex shock jock would normally be.

He got so spun out by rolling out The Blaze TV app and the notion that he was going to single-handedly retake the media. I think a lot of things went sideways for him in the years after but his initial effort was noble and unsurprisingly, a bit evangelical in tone.

Odd guy, very much a one of a kind.

The worst thing about the holidays are the "best of" shows, deceptively packaged as live broadcasts.

For shows like Limbaugh, if they're going to play a best of, they should play something from back in the 90s, not something from one month ago.

Wouldn’t that kind of highlight the inevitable decline?  Seems like a double edged sword.
Edit: added inevitable

Depends on how "decline" is defined.  If you're talking in terms of listener numbers, Limbaugh's at his peak currently.

I wasn’t aware his numbers were still so high but I was referring to his creativity.  I hardly listen to his show any more so I may be off base here.  Making a Rush the band simile, most think of “Tom Sawyer” or “Moving Pictures” but that was really just the peak of their mainstream popularity when they have many other great and possibly better things to offer.  I guess I am confessing to being a casual Limbaugh listener.

Any of you fella's catch this segment on Rush yesterday? I was driving when I heard it, and nearly pissed myself.

Joy Behar and McCain got into a little spat on The View over their politics - it ended in Behar calling McCain a "bitch".

Haw haw haw!

I'd rather watch old reruns of "I Dream of Jeannie."  At least Barbara Eden was hot in her day.
