Since he first came to Cleveland, I knew he was going to be a huge success.<quoted text>
Those are the times we live in. Everything is reduced to little nuggets of information/entertainment because it's hard to hold most people's attention for very long.
Yes, you are right about that. I've always been a fast reader and I can easily get lost in a good book. But I know that's not typical these days.
They are a lot like his early radio show. I read them back in the 90s. I never thought that he would become the influential person he is now. I remembering thinking back at the time that he was just a chubby "Joe Pyne" clone. He didn't seem to be very deep, but he certainly struck a chord with Republicans back then. He's had an amazingly run since then.
I didn't who Limbaugh was at the time until my then brother-in-law mentioned him. We were at a family gathering discussing politics as usual. My brother-in-law was listening on as he was helping my sister bring out dinner, and he said to me "You must be a Limbaugh fan" and laughed.
I had no idea WTF he was even talking about. Then some time passed by and I was pizzed off at something the Democrats did, and decided to turn this Limbaugh guy on and see what my brother-in-law was talking about. It was a big switch for me going from FM to AM. I haven't turned him off since.
For me, it was like listening to myself on the radio. It took me a while to catch on as it would for any first time listener, but after the first two or three weeks, I was addicted. When Limbaugh first came to the Cleveland airwaves, he was more conservative and radical than he is today. He mellowed out some.
