Tributes are pouring in for conservative talk radio icon Rush Limbaugh, who died Wednesday after a long battle with advanced lung cancer.
Limbaugh’s death was announced on his radio program by his wife, Kathryn, who described him as “the greatest of all time.”
“Rush was an extraordinary man. A gentle giant. Brilliant, quick-witted, genuinely kind. Extremely generous. Passionate. Courageous. And the hardest working person I know,” she said.
No amount of adjectives could possibly describe the impact of Limbaugh, whose voice represented the conservative movement for decades. As young conservative C.J. Pearson put it, the host “leaves a legacy that will last forever.”
Rush Limbaugh was a pioneer – in every sense of the word.
He leaves a legacy that will last forever with an impact will forever be felt.
