Hugh Hewitt on what he calls “The Speech”:
Rush gave a speech at CPAC today that will be talked about for years and even decades.***
Rush eschews “leadership.” He doesn’t tell people who to vote for or where to show up and march.
But he does communicate with quite extraordinary clarity the deep, abiding attachment that conservatives have for liberty. He does so with great, good humor, and it is this quality that drives the left to distraction. Rush is funny; really, really funny. This is of course the reason he has succeeded far beyond every other radio talk show host. The “women’s summit” this week was just the latest in a long string of innovative –and profitable– firsts that amused even as it made key points.
And Rush is authentic. And deeply appreciated as a result. Long may he prosper.
Is this the tipping point? Will Hugh’s advocacy for Rush push him the way of Harriet Meiers, Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, and the many others that have given Hugh starbursts? Time will tell.
*** Update ***
A comparison. By the way, I was thinking to myself that compared to the clowns currently angling for the top seat at the GOP table, Multiple Choice Mitt Romney looks downright dignified and Presidential.
