I love it!

I think we should also nominate him for a Pulitzer, America's top model, and a Razzie.

It was done as a parody right after Al Gore was nominate for the same award just to show that anyone can be nominated.

I think Ann Coulter should be nominated too.

For showing the world the dangers of toxic chemicals like peroxide bleaches.

I thought Al Gore already won the Nobel for - Mathematics - you know, for inventing the mathematical basis of the internet and all that.

Wrong category. It should be Nobel Prize for Chemistry: Oxycodone (C18H21NO4) efficacy.

No, no, no. He only [i[took the initiative[/i] in creating the Internet. What he invented was Mathematics itself. You thought they called it an al-gore-ithm (algorithm) for nothin'???  bouncy

As Pope noted Rush was nominated more than a month ago, right after Al Gore got his nomination.

No... seriously he IS trying to put his audience to sleep when he speaks right? I mean why else would anyone voluntarily subject themselves to that much boredom?

Anyone can be nominated, but few are really qualified. Rush to me is about anything but 'peace' with the retoric he spews - including his hate of anybody to the left of Attilla the Hun (or himself).

Yes. Very true. But I think your making Rush's point. Al Gore was running around after the nomination like it was some big deal. An honor just to be nominated.

I could be nominated. I could be the walrus. (Ferris Bueller reference)

And he deserves to be nominated just as much as Al Gore, who has been nominated for his work on Global Warming. Now, please, someone with a straight face tell me what does showing a slide show about an unproven theory while flying all over the globe in a private jet and living in energy sucking mansions have to do with Peace? Please. Someone link the two for me...

George W. Bush was nominated as well by some lunatic a while ago. So why not Rush Limbaugh?  crazy 

Fortunately the selection committee has so far had better sense than to make a joke of it.

I'd love for LLF to explain how their nominee's unwavering support (or perhaps more accurately, unwavering enthusiasm) for an illegal invasion of a sovereign nation that's killed thousands upon thousands of people is consistent with the ideals of pacifism. Truly, truly disgusting.

Obviously, the following are some of his worse ones, but they might give you some insight.
"Why should Blacks be heard? They're 12% of the population.
Who the hell cares." -Rush Limbaugh

"And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs,
using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good
because we know what happens to people in societies and
neighborhoods which become consumed by them. And so if
people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought
to be accused and they ought to be convicted and
they ought to be sent up." - ironic, considering his well-known OxyContin habit

"Feminism was established so as to allow unattractive
women easier access to the mainstream of society."

Exactly. Exactly my point! This is no different than what
happens at the Skull and Bones initiation and we're going
to ruin people's lives over it and we're going to hamper
our military effort, and then we are going to really
hammer them because they had a good time. You know, these
people are being fired at every day. I'm talking about
people having a good time, these people, you ever heard
of emotional release? You of heard of need to blow some
steam off?
Rush's Radio Show 5-4-4

"If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people--
I'm serious, let the unskilled jobs that take absolutely
no knowledge whatsoever to do--let the stupid and
unskilled Mexicans do that work."



Hydrogen is an odorless, colorless gas which, given enough time, turns into people.

You know, I'm not fan of Senor Windbag... but you're going to have to come up with something better than that. It took me about ten seconds on google to confirm that's just a copy and paste from an anti Rush e-mail circular. It's verbatim on a dozen forums. Now, Senor Windbag has had twenty plus years of broadcasting. I'm not surprised at all that you can out of context that to make some pretty asinine comments.

Can you give us some in context things? I happen to know for a fact that he puts the entire transcripts of his shows verbatim on his web site for public viewing.
