Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first few years of his national show were quite freewheeling, more like a radio comedy show with a conservative bent than a "conservative talk show". Limbaugh himself has said that he came down with CerebusSyndrome after George H.W. Bush invited him to the White House in 1992 and he realized that he was considered an important conservative spokesman.

** In addition, he defended [[RealTimeWithBillMaher Bill Maher]] during the latter's controversial comments, post-9/11. Maher has done the same for him in most cases; it's more or less an unspoken understanding that they both appreciate the right that the other has to say what they wish, no matter how much they disagree on what's actually being said.

* SimpletonVoice: A lispy, [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Sylvester-esque]] "Voice Of The New Castrati", so named in reference to the stereotype of Leftist men being emasculated by militant feminism.
