His fans have asked for this for years, and now Rush Limbaugh is making it happen, at least for one lucky listener. The winner of his latest sweepstakes will meet Rush and his crew and watch him do his show live, from the top secret Florida “EIB Command Center”!
In a rare TV interview, Rush told Greta van Susteren of Fox News, “I think right now anybody other than Ron Paul could beat Obama if the election were tomorrow” (FREE video).
Michael Savage raised some eyebrows this week with his opinions about last weekends GOP candidate’s debate (FREE audio).
“Ron Paul looked like a genius to me,” Savage said. “I never cared for him before, but I found myself cheering the man. … It would be refreshing to have a Trumanesque man like Ron Paul as Vice President.”
Savage is an expert on healthy foods and natural medicine, so he was eager to comment on a shocking new study revealing that much of that high priced so-called “extra virgin olive oil” is no such thing (FREE audio).
“Are you surprised after watching The Sopranos?” he quipped.
Hannity invited both Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich on his radio show to address each other’s criticism of their fellow candidates. He opined that the criticisms were veering from the political to the personal. Romney replied that Gingrich really was “misguided” about his experience in the private sector and how many jobs his companies like Staples have really created (FREE audio).
In response, Newt told Hannity and his listeners that he stands by his critiques of the former Massachusetts governor (FREE audio).
With so many conservative pundits coming out against Newt Gingrich, Mark Levin called out Charles Krauthammer, George Will and Ann Coulter for not being equally critical of Gingrich’s opponent, Mitt Romney (FREE audio).
Levin has made no secret of his conflicts with candidate Ron Paul and his vocal admirers. This week he got into a heated argument with one of Paul’s ardent supporters, who called into the show (FREE audio).
“Was that an earthquake?” joked Laura Ingraham. She was referring to First Lady Michelle Obama’s quest to break the Guinness “jumping jacks” record, with some help from local schoolchildren.
At her website, Ingraham wrote: “Mitt Romney’s campaign is focusing on making him seem more normal. This led to him telling a New Hampshire town hall audience about the living conditions he endured during his Mormon mission to France as a young adult. Does all this talk of using a bucket as a toilet impact how you view a candidate? And why should Romney distance himself from his success? If you got it, flaunt it!”
Also this week, she spoke to former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum about his path to the Republican presidential nomination (FREE audio).
Glenn Beck offered listeners an update on his current preferences in terms of Republican nominees: “I just said last week, gun to my head, I’ll vote for Mitt Romney. If it’s Newt Gingrich and a third party and it’s Ron Paul – and I don’t agree with his Middle East policy at all – I might consider a third party. So there’s where I stand” (FREE webcam).
Beck also blasted TIME magazine for declaring “The Protester” their 2011 “Person of the Year,” calling the editors “traitorous monsters” (FREE audio).
And now, from the left side of the dial …
This is just deranged. Notorious progressive talk show host Randi Rhodes has decided that Sen. Tom Coburn’s new facial hair means he’s a meth addict (FREE audio).
Radio Equalizer’s Brian Maloney notes: “It’s always ironic to hear Rhodes accuse someone else of being an addict, but it happens frequently.”
And indeed, Rhodes has been dogged by allegations of public intoxication over the years.
I must be naive, because I don’t understand what she’s talking about here. I guess Rhodes knows more about the symptoms of street drug addiction than I do.
