Best known for his self-titled {{radio}} TalkShow, ''The Rush Limbaugh Show'', '''Rush Hudson Limbaugh III''' (born 1951) is a well known American conservative pundit who's not shy about his viewpoints. He has been credited with reviving AM radio and pretty much laying down the standard for the modern day political talk radio program. From 1992-1996, a television version of his show was broadcast through syndication. He also briefly served as an [[WTHCastingAgency ESPN football commentator]] in 2003, though he resigned several weeks into the season after making controversial remarks about the press coverage of Quarterback Donovan [=McNabb=].

Added DiffLines:

* OutsideContextProblem: Donald Trump to the Drive-By Media, liberals and the Establishment. Rush asserts that they kept trying to put Trump in their usual mold, but he simply didn't fit because he's not a career politician, and as a result they had no idea what to make of him.

* CouchGag: When UsefulNotes/BillClinton took office in 1992, Rush started every episode of both his radio and tv shows with "America Held Hostage: Day (Number of days in Clinton's term)". For the tv version a picture of the White House had something new added to it every day, usually something or someone having to do with that day's news events.

** In January 2006, UsefulNotes/AlGore, while promoting his climate change documentary ''An Inconvenient Truth'', claimed that the world would reach a point of no return in 10 years unless "drastic measures to reduce greenhouse gases are taken". Rush responded by starting an "Armageddon countdown" clock on his website, and gloated when the clock expired in 2016.



** Recently, he made a statement saying he, against all odds, supports video games in the California V. EMI lawsuit. Granted, it had to do with being a tool for censorship by biparitsan democrats.

* GlobalWarming: Believes it's a hoax, mostly because in his view humans just aren't capable of it. He has actually voiced the opinion that it's the height of arrogance to think that human activity could influence something so vast and complex.

* InsistentTerminology: He consistently refers to the [[UsefulNotes/BarackObama Obama]] administration as "the Obama ''regime''" mostly to parody the lefties who used to (in some cases still do) refer to the Bush administration as "the Bush ''regime''." He also refers to Obama's inauguration as an "Immaculation".
