I, too, was mildly convulsed when I heard the first of Rush's outrageous takeoffs on Democrats. For six months to a year, I listened to him when an easy opportunity presented itself. Then the humour wore off. I guess it was because he is myoptic to any strong rightwing candidate, (which also offered lots of humorous opportunities.)

If he had been hitting both sides of the political spectrum I would have liked his wicked biased humour just as I enjoyed Sat Nite Live or the Capital Steps players. But he got stuck in his narrow viewpoint and the onesidedness of his twisting the knife began to appall me. I developed a distaste and almost shudder when I hear his predictable biased distortions: they are no longer funny.

For me Rush is no longer a black knight jabbing the establishment. Now he is the paid assassin pushing his knife into the backs of his father's enemies and then laughing demoniacally as he sees them writhing in their pain.

(That reference to his father's enemys is an important part of Rush's personality.)

Back to you John!
