"Rush (Limbaugh) is by far the most articulate, defining voice of conservatism in America today, the most articulate voice of raging conservatism in the country. Rush is a powerful voice. I would argue that Rush is the leader of the conservative movement in the country."– sean hannity
"These days you only hear gushing praise and shameless groveling like that right after someone pissed off Rush.
I mean, to warrant obsequious crack-licking like that, (Hannity) must have said something terrible. Something like 'The vacuum in Republican leadership has allowed a mean-spirited, lard-assed talk radio mind-corpse to become de facto leader which is turning an already crippled party into a bickering laughingstock.'"– stephen colbert
