Take this for example: "Frankly, I'm fed up... no, I'm weary of even having to express sympathy for Cindy Sheehan. Oh, she lost her son. Yes, yes, yes. But we all lose things."
Nor does Rush feel the need for a social conscience:
"Citizen service is a repudiation of the principles upon which our country was based. We are all here for ourselves.""One of the things I want to do before I die is conduct the homeless Olympics . . . the 10-meter shopping cart relay, the dumpster dig, and the hop, skip, and trip."
"If you're working to make the playing field fair and level, you're working for the wrong reasons. Work to take the opportunities that arise and use your individual talents to excel at those opportunities."
"The culture war is between the winners and those who think they're losers who want to become winners. The losers think the only way they can become winners is by banding together all the losers and then empowering a leader of the losers to make things right for them."
"I don't consider myself an offensive guy. I am just a harmless lovable little fuzzball."
"Enraging liberals is simply one of the more enjoyable side effects of my wisdom."
"Once again we find conservatives able to be totally honest about who liberals are. And I'm telling you, the liberals cringe. They go ape! ? When you dare be honest about them, they call it an attack!"

Either he didn't take his medication or he's acting, one of the two."
"Take that bone out of your nose and call me back."(To a black caller.)
"Why should Blacks be heard? They're 12% of the population. Who the hell cares."
"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?"
"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies"
