RUSH LIMBAUGH BESTS HILLARY CLINTON
A cultural moment? It would seem so. A new Times of London/YouGov survey asked respondents in a dozen populous nations who they “most admired” in the world. The question was open-ended rather than multiple choice, incidentally.
Among Americans, it was Pope Francis who was in first place, followed by President Obama, Billy Graham, former President George W. Bush, Bill Gates, Oprah Winfrey, the Dalai Lama, former President Bill Clinton, Rush Limbaugh, and in 10th place, Hillary Clinton.
Mr. Bush’s stature is of note. But there was some merriment among conservatives who noted that the talk radio host bested the former senator and secretary of State.
“Shock and dismay that the radio entertainer — not even television — the radio entertainer, Rush Limbaugh, is more admired in the United States than Hillary Clinton. That’s right. I didn’t even know this was going on,” Mr. Limbaugh told his audience upon being apprised of the findings. “There was no way I could stoke the poll. I didn’t even tell anybody anything. I didn’t even know it was going on.” myself, even though I fought in the trenches of Republican politics for over two decades. Even so, I would never pretend that I’m lord over determining who the real Republicans are.”
