Paul Mulshine has gotten even crankier in the years since he moved to the Star Ledger from Philadelphia.  He has libertarian leanings and would like to ban SUVs but many times he hits the nail square on the head.

I've yet to meet a person with "Libertarian leanings" who wants to ban SUVs. I don't know this writer or the "Mike" fellow he talks about, but there are legions of people out there who have come to know Rush. Based on what I've read from the column, I conclude that the writer is a jerk.

"He is simply an entertainer who uses conservatism to sell a wide range of products."

I think it more accurate to describe Limbaugh as a conservative who sells a wide range of products in order to get his message accross. And get rich, of course.

However, I concur with the author in condemning Rush's generally favorable treatment of tobacco use.

Is his picture in the dictionary next to "conflicted?"

Just a question, not a challenge. How is banning SUVs compatible with libertarian leanings?

"It was at that moment that I realized that this clown had somehow fused in his head the identity of Billy Crystal, the comedian, and William Kristol, the writer, to create this new personality, Bill Krystal."

I wonder if this jackass realizes that Bill is short for William, and that "Kristol" and "Krystal" are pronounced is pretty much the same way. But, rather than consider that they guy just didn't know how to spell his last name, he comes up with this garbage.

Quite frankly, I wouldn't be questioning other people's conservatism if I was this guy.

The writer is an elistist who claims that because someone misspelled Kristol's (I may have just misspelled it too) name that he doesn't know the difference between the comedian and the conservative pundit with similar names.

He's obviously jealous of Rush's success.

I do agree with him about Rush's irrational attitude towards anyone with an anti-smoking attitude. There are some valid complaints, but cigarettes do cause cancer and anyone who works to persuade children from starting to smoke is one of the good guys.

"...That's right, the antismoking hysteria has now reached a point where Little League teams are wearing uniforms with the team name Smoking Kills."

I didn't hear Rush say that, but assuming he did, Rush really blew it there. It's one thing to make fun of lawyers and politicians who try to enrich themselves by claiming that their tobacco-using clients had no idea that smoking was hazardous to their health, but to make fun of a guy who organizes a little league team and urges kids not to smoke cigarettes is insane. This guy Sawyer wasn't blaming the cigarette industry for his father's death, he was simply urging youngsters not to smoke.

Though Limbaugh has endorsed the drug war, he seems to have a soft spot for certain drugs. He has admitted to abusing prescription sedatives and is going into rehab. That's nice, but in the past he consigned his fellow drug abusers not to rehab but to prison.

Summarizing Rush's hypocritcal approach to the drug issue: "Tobacco and `prescription pain medication' good -- less harmful drugs that I don't use bad."

This article is so stupid that I refuse to answer it except to say that those who agree or are piling on aren't worthy of shining Rush's shoes!

The last time I listened to Rush he was a NAFTA loving, job-exporting, bomb-the-world, tax-cuts for me, Neo-con. I hope he recovers both physically and mentally.

Gads do you remember that facade he put up about his ear operation to restore his hearing. I actually believed him then, no more. Throw in suckups to Ginrich and Bennett. What a fakeroo.

I've come to realize that a lot of newspaper columnists have a serious resentment of people like Rush Limbaugh because of the disparity in their incomes. Rush Limbaugh may not be any smarter than Mulshine, but because he has a weekly audience of 20 million people he earns many times more money than Mulshine. It really shows in this column, doesn't it?

Well, one thing's for sure...Rush did more single-handedly to PROMOTE the Conservative cause and agenda in this country than all the Rush-bashers combined.

If the definition of "Conservative" is one who celebrates Apollian Order over Chthonian Chaos, marries his childhood sweetheart, has the celebratory 12 children and goes to the Church of his Baptism every Sunday, Rush is not and never has been a Conservative and most Free Republicans are not either.

If the definition of "Conservative" is to introduce cultural dissonance into the Soviet Socialism that has overtaken large chunks of the planet with his exposition of overwhelmingly obvious contradictions and errors of logic he is and always has been a master Conservative.

Best regards,

Mulshine is remarkably ignorant, a benchmark of the US predilection for entertaining stupidity. How in the world could good dirt make such a waste of biomass? He can’t even furnish a good steak for the Sunday barbie.
