For someone who is never short on words, I find myself stunned into silence.
Earlier today, Rush Limbaugh revealed that he is suffering from an advanced form of lung cancer. After ruling out asthma, heart issues, etc., his doctors discovered the true reasons for his symptoms.
Rush Limbaugh is a hero. A fearless advocate of free speech, he pioneered the genre of conservative talk radio after President Reagan helped overturn "The Fairness Doctrine". That ill-fated FCC policy required every political view to be offset with an opposing view, which represents an absurd repudiation of the First Amendment.
Limbaugh's focus on politics, history and human experience resonated throughout America. His pragmatic genius helped open the door for a range of political opinion. Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, and a range of other conservative superstars are the result.
He has made a huge difference to the course of American history. I encourage you to say a prayer tonight for Mr. Limbaugh.
