Working as Jeff Christie in Pittsburghs and as Rush Limbaugh in Kansas Citys radio stations cannot prove to be overly dazzling. He was even fired several times owing to his exceptionally open and dogmatic nature besides ill-mannered political opinions, that he made. Ebbing profession made him frustrated; he left the radio and began selling off tickets for Kansas City Royals baseball team. When you’ve got it, you get it. Norm Woodruff, a San Francisco radio executive wasn’t less than an angel in Rushs life. Woodruff insisted his buddies, at Sacramentos KFBK to hire Rush. Limbaughs profession came back on course when he superseded Morton Downey Jr. and earned great popularity. Rush got to smash an actual chance when Federal Communications Commission needed the support of media (radio and television) to discuss both sides of political disagreements over annulling of Fairness Doctrine. As the time passed by, Limbaughs dash of wit, sarcasm and important voice were becoming increasingly popular and lucrative. Rush subsequently made a hurry and signed with ABC Radio Network after leaving KFBK. There were chain of backfires from both sides. Sandra in defense said that, The efforts to silence girls have certainly failed and it is a smear to divert from substantive policy discussions. Such excessive remarks by Limbaugh induced country and many assistants and advertisers of Limbaugh show pulled off their positions. Limbaugh did issue an apology but kept his opposition to contraception capital. But his powerful opposition to abortion was enough to trigger an excellent controversy when he made pejorative remarks about Sandra Kay Fluke. Sandra is an American lawyer and a girls rights activist. In February, 2012 she was urging over the condition of health insurance to cover contraception mandate. Her testimony brought masss focus when Limbaugh called her, slut and a hooker on air. This occurred when a third year Georgetown Law student was refused with the chance to to testify, in support of insurance companies insuring the expense of contraception.

Rush Limbaugh is well-known for his multitudes of opinions, out of them the top 5 racist quotations go as follows: Perhaps you have noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson? Right. So you go into Darfur and you go into South Africa, you remove the white authorities there. You place sanctions on them. You visit Ethiopia. You do the same. Look, I would like to put it to you this way: the NFL all too frequently resembles a match between the Bloods and the Crips with no weapons. There, I said it. They’re 12 percent of the people. “I simply dont speak, I compose also.”- Rush is certainly one of those well-known hosts, who believes in being multitasking. After being heard on 600 stations nationally, Rush had pencil down his first novel, The Way Things Should Be in 1992, that shows the important influences on his life and perspectives, and blasts off on all the top problems of our day. In this, he holds on issues like Anita Hill, The Displaced Fraud, The Media and many more. Along with this, he proves himself to be an epitome of mortality and merit. Limbaugh made his first publication to the top of the bestseller list and after remaining there for eight months, he intended to show no mercy to the Democrats and Liberals, that has been evident from his second novel, See, I Told You So. This novel got printed in the year, 1993. The storyline revolves around a character named, Rush Revere, who goes back in time and encounters American history. Through this novel he satiates his long time want to make American history come to life.

#Quote
1Liberalism is hideous. It is the antithesis of being pro-human. It looks at life as a burden in and of itself to be managed, rather than as a blessing to be explored and lived to the fullest.
2Victory is victory, and it's not determined by a timetable. World War II did not go by as quickly as you think.
3There are more acres of forestland in America today than when Columbus discovered the continent in 1492.
4There's nothing good about drug use. We know it. It destroys individuals. It destroys families. Drug use destroys societies. Drug use, some might say, is destroying this country. And we have laws against selling drugs, pushing drugs, using drugs, importing drugs. And the laws are good because we know what happens to people in societies and neighborhoods, which become consumed by them. And so if people are violating the law by doing drugs, they ought to be accused and they ought to be convicted and they ought to be sent up.
5These tough sentencing laws were instituted for a reason. The American people, including liberals, demanded them. Don't you remember the crack cocaine epidemic? Crack babies and out-of-control murder rates? Liberal judges giving the bad guys slaps on the wrist? Finally we got tough, and the crime rate has been falling ever since, so what's wrong?
6When you strip it all away, Jerry Garcia destroyed his life on drugs. And yet he's being honored, like some godlike figure. Our priorities are out of whack, folks.
7I'm appalled at people who simply want to look at all this abhorrent behavior and say, "Hey, you know, we can't control it anymore. People are going to do drugs anyway. Let's legalize it." It's a dumb idea. It's a rotten idea, and those who are for it are purely, 100 percent selfish.
8Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?
9I love the women's movement. Especially when I am walking behind it.
10There are more American Indians alive today than there were when Columbus arrived or at any other time in history. Does this sound like a record of genocide? [according to US Census Bureau estimates, there were approx. 15 million Indians in America when Columbus arrived. There are approx. 2 million in America as of 1996]
11Rush Limbaugh, your host, having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have.
12Many people have said I need to be balanced with equal time. Wrong . . . I AM equal time.
13If Thomas Jefferson thought taxation without representation was bad, he should see how it is with representation.
14One thing I want to do before I die is to conduct the Homeless Olympics. Events would include the ten-meter Shopping Cart Relay, the Dumpster Dig and the Hop, Skip & Trip.
15The difference between Los Angeles and yogurt is that yogurt comes with less fruit.
16[on the US role in post-war Iraq] Our armed forces shouldn't be over there. They're good at killing people and blowing things up, not peace-keeping.
17[on "free trade"] If we are going to start rewarding no skills and stupid people, let the unskilled jobs, let the kind of jobs that take absolutely no knowledge whatsoever to do, let stupid and unskilled Mexicans do that work.
18Feminism was established to allow unattractive women easier access to the mainstream.
19Sorry to say this, I don't think he ck pro football quarterback Donovan McNabb] has been that good from the get-go. I think what we've had here is a little social concern in NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well, black coaches and black quarterbacks doing well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve . . . [Amid the ensuing controversy, Limbaugh resigned his position as the "voice of the fan" commentator and ESPN accepted]
20Talent on loan from GOD.
21Half my brain tied behind my back just to make it fair.
