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.
