25 Years Of ‘The Rush Limbaugh Show’

Rush Limbaugh’s eponymous national radio show celebrates 25 years in syndication this Thursday. Here are some of the major moments in the conservative pundit’s controversial career:

  • 1988: Rush Limbaugh’s fledgling program receives initial grant from the National Endowment for the Arts
  • 1990: Gushing, weeklong praise of the movie Ghost
  • 1993: Enters a near nirvanic 19-day on-air trance in which he delivers a single uninterrupted rant against people on welfare wearing new clothes
  • 2000–2008: Pretty much cool with everything government does
  • 2004: Limbaugh’s third wife calls into the show to tell him she wants a divorce
  • 2006: Apologizes for exaggerated impression of Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s condition with a practiced, spot-on imitation
  • 2006: Uses the term “Project Massacre” followed by a sound effect of wind chimes to refer to the legalization of abortion
  • 2011: During a very slow news day, Frankie Muniz comes on the show
