Educated? Yes. Ruling class?....I don't think so.

Here is the great populist Rush Limbaugh on his radio show last Thursday, tearing into Brit Hume, Charles Krauthammer and Chris Wallace for their positive comments on President Obama's Arizona eulogy (verbatim remarks transcribed via HuffPost: Rush Limbaugh Rips Fox News Panel For 'Slobbering' Over Obama Speech, Panel Responds).
Limbaugh: "They were slobbering over it for the predictable reasons," he said. "It was smart, it was articulate, it was oratorical. It was, it was all the things the educated, ruling class wants their members to be and sound like."
Krauthammer later responded: "As one of the three slobberers...I find it interesting that only the ruling class wants a president who is smart articulate and oratorical in delivering a funeral oration...it's an odd and rather condescending view of what the rest of America is looking for in their president."
Well, as one who is both educated and appreciates a President who can express coherent thoughts in complete, grammatically correct sentences, let me affirm that Rush is indeed correct except for one small detail: he has more wealth and power in his fat left pinkie than me and all of the educated people I know put together. I have about as much power as my single vote entitles me to, and influence no one who doesn't already more or less agree with me. I am not rich and most assuredly not part of the "ruling class". Am not now and have never been.
And how much is Rush Limbaugh worth? Something like $400 million over 8 years through 2016? Which is in turn based on the presumed breadth, wealth, and influence of his listenership? And he represents the underclass? Or does this lying hypocrite represent, more likely, the media bigshots who pay his humongously inflated salary (yeah, I know Clear Channel has recently been on the brink of bankruptcy, but its owners are still Limbaugh's corporate masters)?

Rush is right again. Rush is rich, but he is not the ruling class. Rushs' vote is equal to yours or mine an anyone else. I would rather have my leaders tell the truth. They do not have to be professionally articulate, but should be able to make their point understood. I don't ever recall being at a memorial with people yelling and screaming their confused adoration for a skel such as obama. Rush tells it like it is whether you like it or not. I like it.

I'm not a fan of Rush, Oberman... it's all entertainment and less intellectual thought. That makes it disingenuous.

Rush Limbaugh is accurate, articulate, and factual delivered in an entertaining way. Not at all disengenuous. Just tells it like it is. If he wasn't all this, the left wouldn't need to spread their lies about him.

Any time a Rush quote is used by the left, it is taken as a sound bite and never in its full context.
Just for one major lie, the left avers Rush gets his talking points from the GOP and or the GOP gets its talking points from Rush. Rush is his own man, controlled by no one and has been documented as being almost always right (over 99%) by an independent agency. In essence, I would rather be a capitalist than a socialist, and government needs to be at a minimum in the peoples lives.
