Limbaugh was never, ever in his life the mensch that Alex Trebek was.
I couldn't help make the comparison between the two men: One, Limbaugh, made his career by vilifying, degrading, and defaming people he disagreed with and was a major contributor in the coarsening of American life.
The other, Trebek, for 35 years hosted one of the most popular quiz shows on television with his charm, graciousness, and humanity. And with his death, made less fortunate people's lives better by giving away his considerable wardrobe to homeless men and men leaving prison, needing the right clothes to find a job.
No honest person would ever use the words "charm," "graciousness," or "humanity," to describe Limbaugh, and why would they?
Limbaugh made his fortune and fame by attacking and tearing down anyone or anything he and his fans disagreed with:
Limbaugh mocked a 12-year old child, Chelsea Clinton, comparing her to a dog, on his radio program. Who the hell admires a creep who attacks a child and makes fun of her looks?
Limbaugh also mocked Michael J. Fox's Parkinson's disease.
Limbaugh made fun of AIDS victims, blowing whistles and honking horns while reading off the names of the dead from AIDS.
Humane? No. IMO, there's more humanity in a hyena than there was in Limbaugh.
Here are some of Limbaugh's most famous racist and cruel statements. (Remember, his fans admire this wretchedness in a human being -- they must be just like him.):
“Look, let me put it to you this way: the NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it.”
