Rush Limbaugh has shared the secret of his success with the world (via Fox News):
I have shown you get ratings on radio being positive, respecting the audience, being inspiring and motivational at times, when it’s necessary.
Here’s part of the inspiring and motivational message he bestowed upon us in the same interview:
I think Obama is largely misunderstood by a lot of people. … And we’re finding out this guy’s got a chip on his shoulder. He’s angry at this country. He’s not proud of it.
And racial profiling, I mean, I — you know, race — let’s face it, President Obama’s black, and I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder. I think there are elements in this country he doesn’t like and he never has liked. And he’s using the power of the presidency to remake the country.
There was also this deliciously upside-down exchange between Greta Van Susteren and the Bimbaugh, peeling away the layers of illusion that cloud the truth and revealing to us, once and for all, the truth about health insurance:
LIMBAUGH: … But you realize, Greta — now, you’re a lawyer. You know there is no way we can insure our health. We can’t insure our health. What health insurance is, is you taking a risk, paying a premium, what you think it’s worth to guard against something catastrophic.
VAN SUSTEREN: It’s gambling.
LIMBAUGH: It’s — well…
VAN SUSTEREN: A little bit. Insurance is gambling.
LIMBAUGH: In a way.
Silly us! All these years we went about thinking that health insurance (all forms of insurance, actually) is about reducing risk. That not buying insurance is gambling. That buying insurance is the exact opposite of gambling.
But that’s why they pay them the big bucks, I guess. For helping us to see the light on the most important issues of the day. Long live the media! Long live liberty, freedom, etc!
