"Rush doesn't think for himself. That's not necessarily a slap because he's not paid to be a thinker he's an entertainer. I can’t remember the last time that he has veered from the talking points from the DC/Manhattan chattering class. If they were praising Huckabee, he would be too. Also, I have to think that he’s dying to have Hillary in the White House. Bill Clinton made Rush a megastar. Having another Clinton back in power would make him the Leading Voice of the Opposition once again," - a Huckabee ally explaining Limbaugh's aversion to the former governor of Arkansas.
