    Radio host Rush Limbaugh seems to be the utlimate showperson.   The things he says about women,ethnic/racial minorities and others are simply beyond the pale, especially about women's health and reproductive issues.   Sometime ago whilie I was watching his television show, he made a joke about slavery, specifically the sharks eating the enslaved Africans who jumped overboard.    It is totally incredulous what he is saying.    However, he has a large following.   What is your take on this person?

    Rush Limbaugh has no conscience. He created a character and it became so popular and powerful that he has now become a parody of himself.
    He doesn't care a whit about the issues he lambasts ("Limbasts" perhaps?) on the air.

    He is laughing all the way to the bank, too.

      Of course, he is the ultimate showperson in the tradition of P.D. Barnum!
