In addition to his obvious insecure blusters Rush is a patron of teenage (or younger) prostitutes in Thailand (he was busted with his Viagra stash)...great poster boy for the right wing.

I wish someone would require that Rush take a drug test before his broadcasts.

My goodness this take was hilarious! Cobert really has something with this show. He’s been able to take entertainment news so far into humor, that it transcends truth. I never thought Comedy Central could do another news-related program. Glad to be proven wrong.

Colbert rules. Rush is a tool of the establishment to a very rare degree. The fact that people listen to him in any numbers beyond his mother shows how much Americans are willing to follow the local bully. Really, I am sorry that this guy is presented by media as representing you and I.
