Republicans and "thrill-seekers everywhere" (as Rush liked to greet his listeners) mourn today the death of Rush Limbaugh, a giant of conservative analysis and an expert in communicating that analysis to his audience for more than 30 years. Ever since he was diagnosed with lung cancer just over a year ago, we suspected the day would come when we would turn on the radio at noon and learn that the last time we had heard his confident voice opining on the day's news was indeed the last time we would hear it. Today was that day.
We pause to honor the memory and enormous impact of Rush on the country he loved so much. Thank you, Rush.
