Rush Limbaugh: "The Man Who's Always Right"

London's Daily Telegraph profiled Rush Limbaugh today. It was an interesting read...but what was the writer doing prowling through the bathroom medicine cabinet at Limbaugh's studio?

I never cease to be amazed at Rush's ability to speak extemporaneously in such great detail; I also admire his clarity and ability to get to the essence of issues without talking down to his audience. Unlike some other hosts, he never becomes dull or repetitive. Rush informs, analyzes, entertains, and stimulates critical thinking. And he does it all while gracefully dealing with a major handicap, listening to callers -- and being able to modulate his own voice -- thanks to a cochlear implant, having gone almost completely deaf a few years ago.

Hearing Rush's reassuring voice each morning is one of those things that gives a little extra "zing" to the day. I've been a daily listener for over 16 years, and I hope to listen to him for many years into the future.

Laura, it was indeed really weird about the medicine cabinet - like he was looking for evidence. Sort've a creepy invasion of privacy...

I liked seeing how well aquainted with himself he is - direct, honest, and cut himself no slack as far as his own shortcomings go.
