Someone earlier suggested a striking similarity between Rush
Limbaugh and television wrestlers.  On my cable system, however,
Rush occupies the slot next to Barney and, while channel surfing
recently, I began to notice the similarity between the two.  For
comparison's sake:
                            Barney                 Rush
                            ------                 ----

   Large clumsy              YES                   YES

   Garish, tight-            YES                   YES
   fitting clothes?

   Oversized head            YES                   YES
   and oversized rump?

   Stupid, repeti-          "I love you          "I hate Bill
   tious song that           You love me...       I hate  Hillary
   is repeated ad

   Idiotic plastic           YES                   YES
   grin no matter
   what he's saying?

   Beloved by some           YES                   YES
   but hated by

   Appeals mostly to         YES                   YES
   those of limited
   ability to think
   for themselves?

   Makes more money          YES                   YES
   than is warranted
   by talent?

   Spawn of Satan?           Some say yes          Some say yes

   I think the evidence is clear!

[Yes, but I would quarrel with that last bit of evidence.  I believe more
careful research would have uncovered the real difference:

   Spawn of Satan?           Some say yes          Some say no
