The news broke a few minutes ago that talk radio host and conservative icon, Rush Limbaugh, has died following a very brutal struggle with lung cancer.
Limbaugh’s wife, Kathryn, broke the news on Rush’s daily radio program.

I can’t speak for my co-bloggers, but I grew into an “adult conservative” listening to Rush in college in the late 1980s. I considered myself a “Reagan Kid,” but I enjoyed listening to Rush who seemed to make being a conservative cool — especially being on a very liberal college campus. Interestingly, I was introduced to Rush by an older black friend from my high school who also recruited me to join him at the same university.
RIP, America’s Anchorman.
Limbaugh used to celebrate and name AIDS victims on his show.
Limbaugh also compared the looks of a 12-year-old to that of a dog.
