The worst thing for Rush Limbaugh's career would be to start saying rational, compassionate things.
My surprise at people's surprise over Rush Limbaugh
So, if we say we're sick of it, that's fantastic. It means our civilization is moving in the right direction. But to act surprised at a pigheaded statement from the king of pigheaded statements is just somewhat bizarre to me.
I say this. He's not going anywhere - not because he is a wonderful guy with a radio show that really challenges us and makes us think. No. He never offered that. But because he has a following of people who have always liked his mean, nasty take on daily, social, political life, and really probably aren't that shocked by his statements. They weren't shocked by previously stupid things that came out of his mouth and won't be shocked by future things. The worst thing for Rush Limbaugh's career would be to start saying rational, compassionate things. This viciousness is his appeal to some folks, and that audience will stand by him most likely. Maybe a tiny group of people will wake up from this Sandra Fluke thing and stop listening to him. Once again, that'd be a great sign for a progressing civilization - but, I don't suspect him to be ruined by anything he says really, so long as it's nasty and directed at liberals or any kind of compassionate idea.
