Rush Limbaugh Bust in Missouri Capital Gets Security Cameras

May 26, 2012

Rush Limbaugh’s induction into the Hall of Famous Missourians — where he joined Harry Truman and Mark Twain — comes with some concerns. Because the number one talk show host in America gets under the skin of so many on the left, the small statue will be protected with security cameras, according to The Chicago Tribune.

This is not the only honor for Limbaugh. The Right Frequency, to be released in August, recounts how Limbaugh has won several Marconi Awards, was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and won the William F. Buckley Media Excellence Award.

Mark Levin Rallies Support for Sen. Orrin Hatch in Utah GOP Primary

May 26, 2012

Mark Levin, who as best selling author of Liberty & Tyranny and more recently of Ameritopia, has become a leading intellectual voice for conservatism, promoted the candidacy of Sen. Orrin Hatch, facing tea party opposition in the Utah GOP Senate primary. In 2010, Sen. Bob Bennett was defeated for the GOP nomination by tea party insurgent Mike Lee. So this race is being closely watched.

Levin, this week on his radio show with 7 million listeners per week, told his audience that Hatch has been there for conservatives and brought up the Bork SCOTUS hearing and the Thomas SCOTUS hearing.  He conceded that much like former Sen. Rick Santorum and others, Hatch made several unattractive votes supporting the big government Republicanism of George W. Bush.   But Levin made clear, Hatch was no Richard Lugar, the longtime Republican incumbent who lost his seat in the Indiana GOP primary.

“Orrin Hatch was the most reliable conservative Republican senator on the Senate Judiciary Committee, among other committees that Ronald Reagan could ever rely on,” Levin said. “And we are going to throw him out of office and claim it’s a Tea Party act when you can see in the last three years how he’s been voting, how he’s been fighting for the balanced-budget amendment and other things that we conservatives believe in since, frankly George [W.] Bush left office?”

Levin has established a unique brand of blending professorial monologues to educate with a strong dose of entertaining humor to grow an audience.  As The Right Frequency, available in August, explains, Levin is no sounding board for establishment candidates. In 2010, his program played a big role in candidates such as Marco Rubio of Florida and Rand Paul of Kentucky winning the Republican Senate nomination over the favorite candidates of the Republican party leaders. So his endorsement of Hatch is significant.
