"I show up here every day -- I want you to understand this -- I do not have, quote, unquote, an agenda, meaning when I engage in show prep, I am not looking for things that can advance what I already believe in and exclude things that do not.  I don't do that.  I don't sit around and look at news stories or whatever and pick and choose based on, 'I can manipulate the audience this way, and I can make 'em think what I want 'em to think.'  In that sense I don't have an agenda.  Of course my agenda's conservatism, freedom and so forth and so on, America's greatness.  Largely what I do here is reactionary," – Rush Limbaugh
