Most Influencial Rush
So who do you think is the most influential conservative? If you guessed Rush Limbaugh, you are right.
In a poll conducted by 60-Minutes and Vanity Fair, Rush came out on top with 26% of vote, kicking the crap out of number 2 Glenn Beck (11%). Think about it. The most influential conservative voices are a couple of media talk hosts. These guys are f**king entertainers. They are not deep thinkers. They are not schooled in history and politics. They sit in front of a mic, or maybe in Beck's case wander around with a mic hanging over his head, and say things to attract listeners to them so they can collect lots of money from advertisers. They don't care about you or me. It all about the ratings and money. And these clowns are the most influential. No wonder the conservative movement is self-destructing.
Come to think about it, the great conservative god, Reagan, was an entertainer also, and not a very good one, so he had to go into politics.
I think I see a pattern here.
