I know what you mean, Mark isn't as bad as Savage, but at least Mark has his values grounded in our founding Documents when he goes on a rant. "I'll be right back after this break". :biggrin:

Are you saying that Rush never claimed to be a Conservative?
Yes! He actually stated, "I never claimed to be a Conservative".

Here's the transcript of what Rush said. Maybe now you'll understand why I took him to task over something he has absolutely no clue about.
The fact that he "Feels" a need to expand on it in a column exposes just how much backlash he received over his stupidity.

“The word ‘conservative’ or ‘conservatism’ has, as a brand, been destroyed. I see evidence of it every day when I endeavor to read things in non-conservative media and elsewhere. And it’s shocking. It is literally shocking. And it’s beyond my ability to comprehend what people out there, particularly college students, literally think when they hear the word ‘conservative,’” Rush Limbaugh told his 14 million listeners, suggesting a moratorium on the “conservative” label because so many people are conditioned to shut down with alarm when they encounter the dreaded conservative.

My thought is to stop using the term. Stop describing yourself as a conservative, proudly or otherwise. Don’t label yourself at all,” he advised. “If instead of being seen as a conservative because you never identify yourself as such, you instead focus on solving problems. The left is obsessed with problems. They genuinely don’t solve them.

“I never said back down, and I never said not to get in their face. I simply said do not use a term to describe yourself that makes it impossible to have any kind of solution with these people. That’s all. I’m not saying don’t be a conservative,” he told an irate caller.
