Philly radio host Chris Stigall on Rush Limbaugh:
"The thing he does better than any other broadcaster I know is connect. That has always been the thing his haters understood, even if they couldn't articulate it. He formed a bond and a trust that cannot be broken. ... Rush Limbaugh connects with good cheer, warmth, sincerity, a sense of humor and a sense of the everyman no one else fully possesses or can stylistically equal. Despite his fame and wealth over a thirty-plus year career, Rush Limbaugh never became cynical, or hateful, or condescending, or mean-spirited. He loves his country and the people who make it work so very much. It leaps from the speakers every day."
