Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh marked his 20th anniversary on the air today by recalling a 1988 interview with Westporter Miggs Burroughs on a public access channel. “Back then I was willing to appear anywhere to promote the program.” Limbaugh told his audience. “There was a TV show on Connecticut public access TV called Miggs B on TV, and the host was Miggs Burroughs, and he interviewed me, and he said, ‘You have a segment called ‘The Homeless Update.’ You’re misunderstood. I mean, that segment’s misunderstood. Your whole point of it is misunderstood a lot.’” Rushlimbaugh.com photo

Twenty years later and still as unpleasant as he probably was then! (The guy on the left.)
Limbaugh is obviously trying to polish his reputation by boasting that he was once on Miggs’ TV show. Shame how low he has sunk since then.
Today marks the 20th anniversary of Rush Limbaugh’s talk radio career.
Huzzahs, hooahs, and congrats!
If Rush were a lib, he’d be feted endlessly by what he has deliciously dubbed the “drive-by media.”
There would be profiles gloating over the pathetic performance of Air America and contrasting liberal radio failures with the amazing longevity of EIB.
There would be retrospectives that spotlighted Rush’s visit to Afghanistan and his charitable work for the troops, his victory over Dingy Harry Reid’s Crush Rush campaign, and the censorious Left’s attempts to kick Rush’s massively popular show on Armed Forces Radio.
Instead, there will be radio silence by the green-eyed media brigade–and a retread of unhinged accusations from the nutroots that Rush Limbaugh’s exercise of the First Amendment is an incitement to violence and “smear“-mongering. Plus the usual declarations of premature death.
He’s been there, done that. Seen it all and battled leftist foes with trademark humor, incisiveness, boundless energy, and unparalleled rhetorical gifts that get short shrift by the drive-bys.
Here’s to the next 20 years of excellence in conservative broadcasting.
