    I never listened to Rush before, if I have the opportunity to listen to the radio all day, which is very rare, I will listen to Boortz from 9am to 1pm, and then I listen to Clark Howard until 3pm when Hannity comes on. That's IF I get to listen for that long.

    So, because of this butthurt from the left, and the sponsors pulling out, I wanted to support Rush. Here's my take:

    1. There were fewer commercials than I'm used to, that's a good thing.
    2. There were still commercials, still sponsors, I don't know if they are new or not.
    3. Rush has moved on.
    4. He's entertaining (though not as much as Boortz).

    I'll listen again. Probably try to support his sponsors, and btw, I cancelled my AOL membership and told them why.

    So, Rush's comments have worked in his favor. Ratings are up and sponsors will pay more for air time

    I used to listen to him a lot, i don't like either party but i'm not someone who just needs my opinion repeated back to me. I agreed with him sometimes, didn't other times.

    The thing that made me turn the dial was his drug issue. He used to bash users all the time, who knows how many times he was high himself when he was bashing them. What an opportunity he had to help all the americans who, like him, struggle with addiction. Instead one or two soundbites, he swept it under the rug and now of course he never talks about drugs at all.

    I don't have to agree with someone, but I can't stand hypocrites.

    Yeah, all those commercial breaks can really turn a listener off. I haven't listened to him for years. But that doesn't mean i don't think he's a good & smart entertainer. My views have just changed over the years. He was just way too Rah! Rah! Rah! for George Bush's Big Government mess. He lost a lot of credibility in doing that. That being said, this whole thing is a ridiculous Left-concocted scam. Many Left-leaning Media personalities say much worse things about Republican Women. And how often do you see the Left getting so outraged and condemning them? It just doesn't happen. This is just a stupid Left witch hunt. So i wish Rush Limbugh the best of luck.

    I don't know if ratings are up, I wouldn't be surprised if they are. I'm sure Rush's followers aren't going to leave him because of some harmless comments he made and I'm sure that some on the left are listening to him simply because they think he's suffering.

    Well, I could comment on the actual issues he brought up, but there are already threads on that stuff. Yes it was an over all impression I got from the first time I listened.
