And I hope he is listening, too. In the past 24 hours, the internet has rung with praise for the man who singlehandedly invented conservative talk radio, and took it to new heights in his over 30 years of broadcasting. My Guru, Dr. Larry Arnn of Hillsdale College, said this about Rush in his email this morning:
My friend Rush Limbaugh, who died today, was a force of nature. More than any other individual, he was responsible for breaking the Left’s media monopoly. His voice on the radio, where he has promoted Hillsdale College for more than 10 years, will never be equaled. He loved our country always, and came to a deep love of God. His massive audience will miss him, I will miss him, and the country will miss him. Our prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace.
On Ricochet.com, numerous Members have written glowingly of how Rush influenced their lives. I heartily recommend this post by political cartoonist Michael Ramirez. You absolutely must click on this link, to see the cartoon and read Ramirez’s eulogy.

So much love and praise, for the larger-than-life guy who was a fixture on AM radio for a generation. He will be greatly missed, unlike the Twitter and Big Media snakes, who, in cheering his death, bring down only opprobrium on themselves. They will not be remembered by history, but the name and career of Rush Limbaugh will live on, forever.
