Did El Rushbo Make Il Papa TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year?“Now, I’m not a narcissist and I don’t think everything’s about me…”
Did El Rushbo Make Il Papa TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year?
I think this is GREAT! It is a wonderful reminder that- even if we vote and ‘love the USA’- we are Catholic first and (I pray) future citizens of Heaven…I no longer listen to conservative talk radio- just for local traffic and weather, then I bounce between public radio, Protestant pop music, and classical (no Catholic radio is this neck of the woods)
The man has truly lost his mind to the demons of narcissism if he thinks he is the reason Papa Francesco was names Person of the Year.
Every time I start thinking that I might be a a member of The Thing That Used To Be Conservatism, Rush reminds me that I am not and never was. I should thank him for that.
I wouldn’t jump to the conclusion that Rush really believes this. It is his modus operandi to make outrageous or over the top statements and then when called on it, say, “Well, liberals say equally silly things all the time and no one ever calls THEM on it.” He calls this tactic (or he did back in the ’90s when I listened to his show) “demonstrating absurdity by being absurd.” While I kinda see his point, that shtick wears thin pretty quickly and is one of the main reasons I stopped listening to Rush’s show years ago.
I wonder if he even noticed the irony of how many pictures of him and ads for his show were posted on the page?
3 hours a day, 15 hours a week, the man has to find something to talk about to fill that time pit and has done so successfully for many, many years. I don’t think I would last more than 3 days with that kind of requirement before I was reduced to navel gazing idiocy.
That said, this is not Rush’s finest hours unless, of course, the spite and hatred that the people in the NY media complex have for him (and it’s there, I’ve experienced it) actually led them to do exactly that. I have no idea one way or the other and frankly don’t care so much but how does everybody else know so much about Time’s editorial process that they confidently draw conclusions?
