14. He certainly had a huge influence on my mother.
Edited on Wed Oct-05-05 09:25 AM by CrispyQGirl
I think the thing about him is he has been around for so long. She started listening to him back in the early 90's. She had just gone through a major health issue & a bad divorce & he gave her someone to blame besides her own bad luck & bad decisions -- LIBERALS! She was vulnerable & fell for it. In a period of about 2-3 years she became a different woman. She use to be a generous, kind-hearted, open-minded person. After years of Rush & now, her new master, O'Reilly, she is mean-spirited, hateful, fearful & so full of racisim I barely recognize the woman that raised me.

Because of that, I hate Rush most of all. Although I think there are many who are as vile or worse these days, he started the trend & set the standard that it is ok to hate & to spew filth without facts. Personally, I could light the whole fucking bunch on fire, walk away & not feel a trace of remorse. They are human garbage & I hate them for what they do.

on edit: On a more positive note, I told her about Thom Hartmann & she caught him on some show (not his own) & told me he sounded very reasonable & that she liked him. Perhaps there is hope.
