What could end Rush Limbaugh’s career?
by Dr. Michael L. Brown
It was surprising to hear Rush Limbaugh say the words, “I don’t have the guts to bring it up” — but he did, on November 8, to his massive radio audience.
Rush Limbaugh lacking the guts to address something publicly? Rush Limbaugh not willing to tackle controversy? Really?
He was responding to a statement by a caller named Lawrence as they discussed Joe Paterno and the scandal at Penn State.
Rush: “You know, if I really wanted to retire today I could answer you in a way that would end my career. Well, of course I’m therefore not gonna say it …. There is a part of this story — it’s glaring; it’s right in front of everybody — and nobody’s got the guts to say it. Nobody, including me. I don’t have the guts to bring it up. Nobody does.”
Caller: “What’s that?”
Rush: “Nobody has the guts to actually give the explanation for what was going on and why there was trepidation in reporting it, and that’s all I’ll say. If you can figure it out on your own, fine and dandy ….”
What was Rush talking about?
Let’s put this in context. If there is any prominent figure in America who does not bow down to political correctness or media pressure, it is Rush Limbaugh. In fact, he’s on record as saying that when people try to silence you, you should shout louder.
