Vid: "You need not react that way"..Limbaugh loses audience control, 1990


Panopticist: "1990, a year or two before he became super-famous, Rush Limbaugh guest-hosted Pat Sajak's short-lived talk show. It didn't go so well: The taping was disrupted by a group of angry activists who were seated throughout the audience.

Video-QT

A visibly rattled Limbaugh was unable to regain control of the show. "He came out full of bluster and left a very shaken man," a CBS executive later said. "I had never seen a man sweat as much in my life...read on"

1. The man starts the show with a rank, ridiculous insult
and has to spend the rest of it defending himself against some quite fair (if shrill) ones. It seems to me that Mr. Politely got off too lightly.

3. wow - what ever happened to those who said they would quash him?
We should have kept on him more. But now that I think about it, Clinton's behavior with all the women, especially monica, put him over the top and we are just now trying to get out from under the likes of this asshat.
