Even in Apology, Limbaugh's Hypocrisy Renders His Words Absurd

If an average American citizen was to name a mascot for talk radio, they would inevitably mention one of two people: Howard Stern or Rush Limbaugh. If that definition were narrowed to "political talk radio", then Limbaugh would be the winner going away. With an audience of tens of millions hanging on his every word, a legion of followers who willingly and gleefully refer to themselves as "dittoheads", Limbaugh may not hold an elected office in either Congress or the national Republican party, but there are few if any folks on the right side of the aisle who have the breadth of influence that he does.
