To be honest, someone needs to tell most of the Limbaugh related media (including Fox news) that you are supposed to criticize someone's work, not their personal life. I could write a 3 hour critique of Rush Limbaugh's work, without even touching on the fact that he's a whore mongering, draft dodging, drug addict. I mean, can we take away many of John Forbes Nash scientific contributions based on him being schizophrenic?

Well, that's apples and oranges though. Being schizophrenic isn't something you choose, and it doesn't reflect your ethics. Whore mongering, draft dodging etc are all choices and say things about the moral competence of the individual. There's also something very different about the work involved; Nash's work had nothing to do with ethics or how people relate to one another in society. That is what Limbaugh pontificates about, he pretends to be a moral authority. His credibility in his line of work, then, does actually depend on his moral choices in his private life.

I wouldn't ever pay attention to an idiot who calls people "Overeducated". As in ever.

EVER.
