140. Rush, you delusional drug addled asshole, you never HAD the country to begin with.

You were a Top 40 DJ who came up with a new character called "Rush Limbaugh". You spewed vitriol and mocked Democrats and Liberals as a shock jock and found an audience. You gave your show away for free to spread it around the country allowing station managers to fill three hours of air time with a built in audience of sycophants who thought you were a genius. You filtered all the calls to make sure only those who agreed with you got though. It's just like Phil Henry only airs people he tricks with his voices.

BTW: Reagan was not wildly popular the way you want everyone to remember. There were times he dipped into the 30s and his approval plunged after Iran Contra. It only eked up a bit towards the end because America decided to give the old man a break,...he was obviously going senile and Nancy was always by his side to give him cover.

Conservatism has ALWAYS been mocked in America. Case in point, Marcy on "Married With Children". The out of touch middle class conservative who didn't mind seeing her tax dollars used to jail the homeless.

You people are seen as heartless bastards and your show had it's time. You will NEVER have a ton of "proud dittoheads" running around like you did before. You are seen as, "Soooo last century" and people don't brag about being one of your fans. Especially young people who have been raised hearing about you.
