20 Years of Rush

Today is, of course, Rush Limbaugh's 20th anniversary on the radio. I remember when I was a young boy who had been instilled with my parents' New-Deal remnant Democratism. I even cheered for Dukakis in 1988 (*shudder). But then, one summer in 1993 or 1994, I found Rush on the radio. It didn't take long for me to embrace conservatism, write letters to the paper, and challenge my parents politically. I remember sitting in the basement cheering during the 1994 election results, when the GOP revolution occurred (oh, the good days of conservatism). I have listened to Rush on and off since then, depending on what I'm doing during the middle part of the day when his show airs, and he is one of the highlights of my day (especially when I'm at work). Here's hoping he's around for 20 more years.

Love Rush! It was back when Bob started grad school at the University of IL when he came home one day so excited because he had heard Rush for the first time (1991). "This guy says everything I think!" Only better, of course. That is when we began the indoctrination of our children while riding in the car. :)
