Rush Limbaugh Most Influential Conservative

A new poll suggests that Rush Limbaugh is the most influential conservative.

26 percent of those who responded, followed by Fox News Channel’s Glenn Beck at 11 percent. Actual politicians – former Vice President Dick Cheney and former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin – were the choice of 10 percent each.

Asked to choose from among seven presidents, Americans tapped John F. Kennedy as the one they’d like to see added to Mount Rushmore. Kennedy polled 29 percent, with Ronald Reagan second at 20 percent.

With all the talk on the news about whether Americans should have the choice of a government-run health insurance plan in any health care reform, only 26 percent of those who responded said they felt confident explaining the “public option” to someone who didn’t know about it.

Half of Americans chose laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier as a ceremony in which they’d most like to participate. That swamped the other choices: lighting the Olympic torch, tossing the coin to open a Super Bowl, starting the race at the Indianapolis 500, ringing the opening bell at the stock exchange and throwing out the first pitch at the World Series.

Fascinating that they skimmed the “do you support a public option” question. Or maybe they are just shy about publishing those results.

In any case, I am pleased that John McCain and none of the other RINOs were on the list of Most Influential. As the titular head of the Republican Party, I believe Rush Limbaugh does a fine job of educating people on the basic tenets of Conservative philosophy.

Oh, and remember when he took my call about Enron? Good times.

  1. Cara, I just read your link to the call you made to Rush–great job, wish I heard it live. Like Rush said, you were courageous. And I’ll bet if you called Rush again & told the screener you were the “courageous” girl defending Enron, he would remember you & take your call in a minute! As Rush said, “my kind of woman”…

    Aw thanks. I will defend Enron anywhere, any time, to any person.

    It was a great company, and the men who are in prison or who were under indictment are good men who did nothing wrong. I will keep preaching that until the day I die.

    • You know what? I think you’re sort of an “Ann Coulter” kind of woman (believe me, I mean that as the sincerest compliment): conservative, not necessarily Republican; pro-capitalism, pro-business..not the “I’m-jealous-because-someone-else-is-more-successful-than-I-am” liberal socialist mantra diatribe, and you are unbending to the politically correct, knee-jerk reaction 95% of the people spout when Enron is mentioned. Thanks, I now have 2 authors to read common-sense, conservative, pro-business musings, Coulter & Ellison.

  3. Cara Ellison says:

    Wow, thank you. I actually like Ann Coulter and I take it as a huge compliment that you compared me to her.

    I am not really a Republican – I’m definitely conservative though, and I am strongly capitalist. I love capitalism and I love Enron. So even if I deviate from the Republican plan – or they deviate from their values – I will always support those two things.

    Also, incidentally, Rush Limbaugh has set a date with his girlfriend.
