Rush Limbaugh

“Do you think Santorum is a threat to your religious liberty? If you do, you are wrong,” Limbaugh told listeners this week, referring to the candidate’s now-infamous “Satan” speech at Ave Maria University. “Barack Obama has already shown that he is a threat to religious liberty. He has already indicated he doesn’t believe in it [by] mandating that Catholic institutions give away things related to abortion” (FREE audio).

On a lighter note, Limbaugh shared an anecdote from his early days of radio about a prank he played on listeners and the media: “I discovered Satanic messages in Slim Whitman music back in Sacramento. I have my own experiences with the devil.”

Michael Savage

“Everyone is mocking Rick Santorum,” noted Michael Savage, “but the fact of the matter is, nothing he’s saying is false.”

He continued, “Everyone is saying this destroys Santorum’s chances. … Remember when the worst president in American history (until this one) was President Jimmy Carter?

“When Ronald Reagan came along, the Democrats said, ‘Oh, thank God! He’s a cultural conservative, so we can easily defeat him,’” Savage noted. “How did that work out for them?”

Savage also talked about the incident in which two Muslims began acting like terrorists on a Continental flight from Houston. He mocked the “gelded” media for leaving out any mention of the men’s religions (FREE audio).

Sean Hannity

Sean was joined by former Speaker Newt Gingrich to discuss the future of his candidacy. From the sounds of this interview, it seems Gingrich is reluctant to concede the race just yet (FREE audio).

Hannity also spent much of the week discussing Rick Santorum’s remarks about Satan and America. Guests included Stuart Varney and Juan Williams. Williams observed that his speech “plays to the most base antagonistic fears that [Obama is] not a Christian and I find this a big turn off.”

“I think Sena. Santorum is looking at the environmental movement as a pseudo religious movement, and that’s what he’s going against,” countered Varney.

Mark Levin

“Republicans need to run against the media,” declared Levin, rather than focus on attacking each other.

He also scolded conservative media for piling on Rick Santorum, especially since Levin believes his speech was leaked by the Romney campaign.

Speaking of the media, Levin wondered why they were ignoring the plight of the Christian pastor who has been sentenced to death in Iran for refusing to renounce his faith (FREE audio).

Laura Ingraham

Dr. Richard Land, president of The Ethics and Liberty Commission, came on to talk about the reaction to Santorum’s “Satan” speech. He also warns that Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith will be under harsh scrutiny if he wins the nomination.

Newt Gingrich opined that his fellow GOP candidates need focus their messaging, while Gingrich supporter and Texas Gov. Rick Perry analyzed the latest televised debate, in which he felt Santorum was the clear winner (FREE audio).

Aaron Klein

Is the Statue of Liberty next on the terrorist hit list?

A former director of the Central Intelligence Agency raised that possibility with radio host Aaron Klein this week on New York’s WABC Radio.

James Woolsey, who now serves as chairman of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Klein that Americans “have to get ready” for a possible attack in the United States, possibly orchestrated by Iran (FREE audio).

Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck has been open about his own personal struggles with addiction, so he was moved to talk about the death of Whitney Houston, which he called “one of the most tragic ever.”

Whitney had been blessed with a loving family, great talent and striking beauty, said Beck, but her marriage to drug user Bobby Brown apparently led to her downfall.

And now, from the left side of the dial …

Progressive pundits usually reserve their faux outrage for targets like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. However, every time Mark Levin releases a new bestseller, they suddenly re-discover the talk show host and attack him once again.

Levin’s latest book, “Ameritopia,” has been No. 1 on the New York Time’s bestseller list for four weeks now, and “libtalker” Randi Rhodes took the opportunity to criticize Levin for – of all things – talking too loudly on his radio show (FREE audio).

It’s a show that has far more listeners than Rhodes’ program, of course. And as Radio Equalizer Brian Maloney pointed out, Rhodes has never even finished writing a book, letting alone making it to the top of the most prestigious bestseller list on earth.
