A most unpleasant person.
A couple of the forums I am on are in full mourning.
If I could point to one person coarsening political dialogue in this country, it would be him. All these "uber patriots" whose monied connections kept them from serving, the multiple marriages, drug and sexual weirdness, but yet, still embraced by their minions.
I guess it's too late for my Al Franken / Rush Limburger Thunderdome fantasy now.
Once upon a time I met ole Rush in person. He was touring potential studios to launch his live TV show, and dropped by a smaller sound stage where I was production manager. He was a big side of beef, and my first and everlasting impression was of his damp & clammy handshake. A likely indication he was hitting the pills way back then.
