If You Think I'm A Sheep, That's Your Problem

You know, I do not get the hatred people have for Rush. It's like the people who hate the President. For Pete's sake, he's a guy that talks on the radio three hours a day! He's not Saddam -- now he's someone you can hate. I'm ashamed to admit I bought into a lot of the stuff I heard in the mainstream media about Rush, but just before Clinton and his cigar became news, I was listening to Dr. Wallach's show on the radio and it started at noon, so I'd switch the radio over about ten minutes early. So I started to hear Rush for about ten minutes a day, and I was baffled. This is the guy I hear so mush trash about? Why? I thought he was amusing, snarky, sarcastic, well informed. He encouraged people to think for themselves when they called. Then the Clinton thing happened. At the time I was listening to Ronn Owens on KGO in the mornings, and though he started out wanting to hold Clinton to account, he ended up becoming an apologist for him. I got fed up and switched to Rush, and I'm still listening. I don't agree with everything he says, hell there's no one alive I agree with 100%! But I sure get tired of being told that people that listen to Rush are stupid sheep who don't have two brain cells to rub together. If that's what you think, then I "Baaaa!" in your general direction.

Update: What K-Lo said.

I love Rush. I don't have to agree with him all the time to respect what he says. He says the things that most of us are thinking, but afraid to say. He's getting such a bum rap right now.

Gennie, it always amazes me when I read things like I've seen today, about how stupid and ignorant Rush's listeners are. I guess it gives them a feeling of superiority or something. I think it says a lot more about them than it does about me.
