A long time reader and commenter sent this email to me on Wednesday.
Dear Bruce,Thought of you seeing all the Rush hate on Facebook today.If it weren’t for all the Reagan hate, there’d be no Rush. When Reagan was in office, there was no Rush.Rush’s rise began after Reagan left the White House.Attacks on Reagan continued. Reagan was a gentleman. He knew history would vindicate.He didn’t think it was his place to fight back. A former president should avoid the limelight.Then-President Bush didn’t defend him either. Some of 41’s team even leaked criticism to the media.Rush filled the void. No hatred of Reagan. No attacks on conservative ideas. No Rush Limbaugh.You want to see fewer Rush Limbaughs? Stop hating on conservatives. Less media bias = fewer Rushes.–A Reaganite reader
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.
The much maligned, overrated, and scandalized anti-Trump, anti-Republican group The ‘Lincoln’ Project seems to be on its last legs.
Two of its most prominent officials are calling on The Lincoln Project to disband.
Hello good people.
We have completed some housekeeping around here.
Our main blog URL was always “GayPatriot.org”… but we hosted the posts at GayPatriot.net.
If you had our .ORG site bookmarked or in an RSS feed (is that still a thing?) — you shouldn’t see any change. But if you had .NET bookmarked, please stop that right now!!!
Our 15 years of archives is still at GayPatriot.net for your perusing pleasure.
Oh, and Happy President’s Day …. except for Woodrow Wilson.
