From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Rush Limbaugh used his own on-air jargon on his radio show, The Rush Limbaugh Show, some of which he invented and some of which he simply popularized. All terms are from Limbaugh's radio program unless otherwise cited.


35 Undeniable Truths of Life
Listed in Rush Limbaugh's two books[1][2] and the "24/7" section of his website,[3][4] these are what he believes to be irrefutable facts of everyday life, first issued in 1988. In 1993 he issued a new version of the list, because the original made several references to the Soviet Union which by then had split up into independent nations.[5] Most of the second 35 'Undeniable Truths' are independent of the first 35.[5]


Addadictomy (as in add a dick to me)
Phalloplasty (genital surgery performed on female-to-male transsexuals, whereby a fake penis is added to a woman seeking to become a man).[6][7] For the reverse operation, see Chopadickoffamy.
Former Vice President Al Gore. This nickname was originally used in a parody of Count Dracula involving "Count Taxula" (voiced so as to sound like Bill Clinton) and his loyal servant "Algore" (as in Igor).[8] The nickname "Algore" was used extensively on the show during the U.S. Presidential campaign in 2000.[9] Now, "Algore" is used when discussing Global Warming and manmade Climate Change, (AGW).[10][11][12]
Ali Limbali
Fictional Middle Eastern analogue of Limbaugh, broadcasting from a "secret location somewhere in Northern Afghanistan." Rush's standard "Open Line Friday" was parodied with Ali's "Find a Phone Friday."[13]
Assume Room Temperature
Euphemism for "die". Used to refer to someone who has died, usually in the case of one of America's top enemies (such as a terrorist leader) or a dictator. From the book The Way Things Ought to Be. After 9/11, Limbaugh occasionally would use the term "assume cave temperature" for when someone from the Taliban or Al-Qaida died.
Atlanta Urinal Constipation
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


Baba Wawa
ABC anchor Barbara Walters. The term originated in a series of late-1970s Saturday Night Live sketches featuring Gilda Radner;[14] Rush Limbaugh was interviewed by Barbara Walters for a story on her ten most-fascinating people of 2008.Cite error: The <ref> tag has too many names (see the help page).
Bank of Amigo
Bank of America, referring to the bank's practice of offering credit cards to persons without social security numbers, criticized because this practice will benefit illegal aliens.[15]
Banking Queen
Rep. Barney Frank (D-Mass.).[16] "Our old buddy Paul Shanklin there with the vocal portrayal of Barney Frank and Banking Queen."[17] "...You can build, You can buy any house your heart desires. Zero down financing, I am the Banking Queen. ..."
Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm mmm mmm!)
Barack Obama, after a video surfaced of schoolchildren in New Jersey singing about the president; the name is derived from that song's refrain.[18]
Barack Nifong
Portmanteau of Barack Obama and Mike Nifong, alluding to the former Durham, North Carolina District Attorney's actions in the Duke lacrosse case.[19]
Battered Liberal Syndrome
Analogous to battered woman syndrome.[20][21]

Ben Affliction
Ben Affleck[23]
Benedict Arnold
Nevada Senator Harry Reid.[24]
Breck Girl
Former Senator and Vice Presidential nominee John Edwards (D-NC). Though it did not originate with the show, the allusion is to Breck Shampoo, as well as Limbaugh's belief that Edwards is too obsessed with his appearance.[25][26]


Caller abortion
In the early days of the show, an unwanted caller was taken off the air to the sound effects of screams, a vacuum cleaner and a toilet flushing.[27] One caller suggested as an alternative to put the unwanted calls "up for adoption." Finally, Limbaugh explained the true purpose of the "caller abortions", and suggested that instead of people being outraged by these "pretend" abortions, they should direct that anger instead towards real abortions. From the book See, I Told You So.
Calypso Louie
Louis Farrakhan. This nickname[28] was coined on the show in the context of his involvement in the Million Man March, and refers to Farrakhan's career as a calypso singer before his religious conversion.
Chang Limbang
Fictional Chinese analogue of Limbaugh, "China's Truth Elaborator" with "talent on loan from Mao", coming "live from Beijing" on the "Excellence In Communal Broadcasting Network." Rush's standard "Open Line Friday" was parodied with Chang's "Open Lie Tuesday."[29]

Christine Ballsy-Ford: This nickname is given to a Christine Blasey Ford who is the presumptuous accuser of Judge Kavanaugh.

Clinton Library and Massage Parlor
Refers to Bill Clinton's Library in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Clinton News Network
Limbaugh's nickname for CNN during the Clinton Administration, due to its perceived pro-Clinton bias — from Limbaugh's second book, See, I Told You So.
Club Gitmo
The U.S. prison for terrorists in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and a reference to Club Med / Club Fed. The reference is designed to satirize the portrayal of prisoner treatment at Guantanamo Bay in some media outlets by comparing Guantanamo Bay with a Mediterranean Resort. An announcer in a mock advertisement bills it as "your tropical retreat from the stress of jihad." Limbaugh has started selling a line of "Club Gitmo" clothing through his website, sporting such slogans as "My Mullah went to Club G'itmo and All I Got Was This Lousy T-Shirt" and "What Happens in G'itmo Stays in G'itmo."[32][33] A reference to "Club Gitmo" was made in episode 7 of season 2 of the NBC TV show "Chuck".[34]
Communist News Network
Another reference to CNN, which Limbaugh believes exhibits a pro-socialism/communism bias in its reporting of news items. From Limbaugh's second book, See, I Told You So.
"Cuba," as pronounced by deceased Senator Ted Kennedy[35]

== D ==Debbie “Blabber Mouth” Schultz

Countrified pronunciation of "deficit" by former Senator Jim Sasser (D-TN) during Sasser's tenure as Chairman of the Senate Budget Committee.[36]
"Dadelut dadelut dadelut!!!"
Trumpet fanfare sound Limbaugh makes when announcing what he considers to be very important breaking news or updates.[37] This goes way back to early 1980s broadcast days.
David 'Rodham' Gergen
Presidential adviser to Nixon, Ford, Reagan, Bush, and Clinton and now CNN commentator David Gergen[38][39][40][41] with similar worldviews as Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Dingy Harry
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.)[42][43][44][45] which itself is a parody of Dirty Harry, the Clint Eastwood movie.
The "EIB Disgronifier" allows users to reformat EIB web pages.[46] The name comes from a story Limbaugh tells of being tricked by an auto shop into purchasing a "disgronifier" for his car. Also sometimes called "disgronificator."
Faithful listeners to The Rush Limbaugh Show.[47] As Limbaugh often explains in his books[48] and radio show, these are not necessarily those who agree with his views. Rather, he believes they are people who love the show and what he's doing, and hope he never stops doing it. The term came into use because callers would frequently begin by stating their line-item agreement with the points made by previous callers. One caller simply said "ditto to what those guys said." Thereafter, callers were encouraged to simply say, “Dittos,” and then get right to their point. Thus, long-time listeners would begin their calls with “Dittos, Rush,” leading to the term “dittoheads.” The term is also used pejoratively by critics of Limbaugh, to mock listeners of his show. Thrash Metal band Slayer also named a song Dittohead, with lyrics based on the aforementioned criticisms of the term.
Drive-by media
The mainstream media.[49] Used in reference to the belief that the media sometimes causes the news rather than reporting it, e.g. reporting that a Quran was found in a toilet (which led to riots in the Middle East), or by creating a rigged poll to report that a conservative politician is polling poorly, then running stories about why "people" (cherry-picked liberals) think the politician polls poorly (thus inviting them to rattle off a list of the politician's perceived faults and shortcomings).[50] He also feels that media favors the agenda of liberal democrats. Rush likens the term to a drive-by shooting, where a gang will drive by, shoot, care nothing for the damage it does and drive off for him to "clean up the mess" with correct information. His contention is they do news without correct backup research and analysis.[51][52] Formerly referred to as the "Dominant Media Culture." Cf: "State-run Media".


EIB Climatologist
Roy Spencer.[53][54] Dr. Spencer is a climatologist at the University of Alabama at Huntsville (UAHuntsville).
EIB Southern Command
Limbaugh's second studio/broadcast complex in an undisclosed location in West Palm Beach, Florida, from which The Rush Limbaugh Show has broadcast since 1997.[55] An allusion to the U.S. Southern Command, SOUTHCOM, which is headquartered in Miami. His Northern Command and first broadcast studio remains in Manhattan but he never visits NYC because of tax reasons.[56][57]
Environmentalist wacko
A militant environmentalist activist, or group thereof (such as Greenpeace and ELF).[58] As further explained in his books (the chapter "Decent Friends of the Earth" in particular), these more militant groups are not to be confused with groups such as the Audubon Society which Limbaugh gives as an example of more mainstream environmentalism.
Epidemic Awards
The Academy Awards.[14]
Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB)
The program's slogan, most frequently referred to by its initialism ("EIB"). The show is often said to be broadcast on the "EIB Network" (eMails are sent to a server marked "," for instance.) The EIB logo, an ambigram of the EIB initials, appears in neon behind Limbaugh during broadcasts via the dittocam, the show's website, on purchasable items, and elsewhere. The EIB Network, however, is not a legal entity: the program is actually produced and syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. Of course, 'EIB' is copyrighted now by common extended usage.[59]
Eyeball News
The newscasts of WSYR-TV in Syracuse, New York. Possibly a reference to Eyewitness News, even though WSYR has never used that brand and instead brands as NewsChannel. Coined when WSYR hosted a debate for the New York's 23rd congressional district special election, 2009.[60]


F. Chuck Todd
Nickname for Chuck Todd.
A militant gender feminist; the term is a portmanteau of "feminist" and "Nazi". According to Limbaugh's books, this term does not refer to feminists in general; rather, "feminazis" are those whose goal is to allow as many abortions as possible to occur, saying at one point that there were fewer than 25 "true feminazis" in the U.S.[61][62] He believes these "Feminazis" are so devoted to feminist ideology (and the pro-choice cause in particular) that they are as repressive and hostile to personal freedom as members of the Nazi party were in Germany.
Frenchurian Candidate, The
2004 Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry (D-MA). The nickname, coined by a caller on August 2, 2004, parodies the title of the 1962 film The Manchurian Candidate.[63] See also "Jean François Kerry".
The Forehead
Paul Begala, a CNN contributor and Democratic strategist.[64]
Fort Worthless Jim
Former Speaker of the House Jim Wright, who was born in Fort Worth, Texas.[65]
The Four Corners of Deceit
(Government, Universities, Science, and State-Media) to hoax Global Warming.[66][67][68][69] The term was inspired by Climate gate since all four corners are involved: media did not report the news for a week, except for Fox News. Introducing his view, Rush Limbaugh explained he means Big Government, Liberal professors, junk science, and, as he says, “Drive-by Media”.
Fredo Cuomo
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Bradenbear424 (talkcontribs) 02:51, 14 May 2020 (UTC)[reply]

During the early to mid 1990s, this was a term used to refer to the overwhelming excitement for Mikhail Gorbachev by those who believe he alone brought freedom to the former Soviet Union. Limbaugh always used the Darth Vader theme, The Imperial March, as a play on Ronald Reagan once referring to the USSR as the "Evil Empire". From the book See I Told You So.
Gorebasm (or Goregasm)
Suggested by a caller during the second hour of the July 12, 2007 show, to recycle Gorbasm, originally referring to the excitement Liberals felt seeing or hearing Mikhail Gorbachev, now referring to the excitement one has over seeing or hearing Al Gore as part of a global warming presentation.[74] Additionally, a July 10, 2007 caller complained that a date was ruined by a Goregasm she was having.[75]
Golly Candidate, The
John Edwards. This term was coined when Edwards worked for a hedge fund that supplied sub-prime loans. Edwards claims to not know that they hurt the poor, and took the job to learn about the poor.[76]

Grim Reaper, The
Geraldo Rivera. [78][79]This nickname was given to Rivera because of his reports on celebrity deaths.


The middle name of Barack Hussein Obama. As in, "The H-bomb has been dropped twice here in the last week by speakers who referred to Obama by his real name."[80] Candidate John McCain told his campaign team to not use his opponent's full and proper name. That, after radio talk show host Bill Cunningham did so and was roundly criticized.[81]


Iraq Surrender Group
The Iraq Study Group. Limbaugh claimed on-air that the group's purpose was to "unite the American people in defeat" and "surrender".[82]
Coined by a caller on the April 20, 2007 broadcast, this term refers to purported fear and loathing by the American Left of victory in Iraq. The caller, a U.S. soldier about to be deployed to Iraq, was inspired to coin the term by the comments by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) that "this war [in Iraq] is lost."[83]
It's Atlas Shrugged
The conditions in which "hard work and creativity" are penalized by government policy, resulting in economic disaster, as depicted in Ayn Rand's novel, Atlas Shrugged.[84]

The Iraq Study Group Report. This refers to Group Co-Chairman James Baker's appearance before the Senate Armed Services Committee in which he said that he didn't want the report to be picked over by the United States Senate or President George W. Bush "like a fruit salad."
Jean-François Kerry
2004 Democratic US presidential candidate Senator John Kerry (D-MA). Limbaugh used the French analog of his first and middle name to mock Kerry's elitist views and his repeating references to his ancestral ties to French royalty. He would also follow Kerry's name with "who served in Vietnam".
Jello-O Molds
Name given to "moderates" whom he believed to be moldable like jell-o, transparent, and often stuffed with marshmallows.[85]
John McBrilliant
Name given to John McCain based on his choice of Sarah Palin and the result of Palin's speech in the RNC in September 3, 2008.[86] "It has been 14 years since we have seen the Conservative Republican base this excited. John McBrilliant pulls this off with the gutsy choice of Sarah Palin!"


"Keepers Of Odd Knowledge Society." Limbaugh's moniker for a small group of conspiracy theorists.[87] Also referenced in a fake public service announcement as the "keep our own kids safe" campaign. Rush rarely used the term.


Larry King Alive
Larry King Live[88]
Leaky Leahy a/k/a Senator Depends
Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT). Limbaugh gave him this nickname in reference to a 1987 investigation into an alleged leak by Leahy to a reporter regarding information which led to his resignation as Vice Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. On January 5, 2005, Limbaugh explained, "If you are leaky, you need Depends."[89]
Limbaugh Doctrine
The thesis that only decisive military victory, not diplomacy or humanitarian aid, can bring lasting peace; used most often in the context of the ongoing Arab-Israeli and Israeli-Palestinian conflicts.[90] "Peace only results after victory."[91]
Lindsey Grahamnesty
Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC), referencing Graham's support for the "Amnesty Bill".[92][93][94][95]
Long-haired, dope-smoking, maggot-infested, good time rock 'n roll plastic banana FM-types
Liberals who prefer the content of FM radio (NPR, college radio, and Top 40, the artists of which often hold left-wing views) to AM talk. This is a historical reference to the period in which Limbaugh began his radio career (early 1970s), in which AM stations appealed to most listeners, while FM was the preferred outlet for "progressive" rock and experimental music.[96]
Loser, the
Michael Dukakis, unsuccessful candidate for President in 1988.[97]


"Mario COO-mo"
Limbaugh's mispronunciation of the former Governor of New York Mario Cuomo's name, supposedly because "that's how the Reverend Jackson pronounces the name, and I don't want to embarrass the Reverend Jackson, so if he says it's COO-mo, it's COO-mo."[98]
Mary "Cute Little Baby Fat" Landrieu
Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA). Limbaugh noted on the air that he thought she was cute, that her facial features still had baby fat. The support staff has not let him live it down.[99];

Meet the Depressed: Rush's term for NBC's 'Meet the Press"

My Adopted Hometown
Sacramento, California, [104] where Rush Limbaugh first hosted and controlled a radio show, 1984-1988. His show was nationally syndicated in Sacramento on August 1, 1988. Reflecting back, he calls Sacramento his radio hometown.[105]


NAA-L-CP (National Association for the Advancement of Liberal Colored People)
The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Limbaugh says that "liberal" refers to the NAACP's almost exclusive support for politically liberal African Americans, while denigrating African Americans who are politically conservative, such as Condoleezza Rice and Clarence Thomas.[106]
NAG (National Association of Gals)
National Organization for Women (NOW). Limbaugh also plays The Forester Sisters' song "Men" during updates involving NOW and other feminist groups.[107]
National Hemorrhoid, The
Former President Jimmy Carter[108][109]
Ned Lament
Nickname (coined on 8/15/2006) for Connecticut Democratic Senate primary election winner Ned Lamont, whose anti-war position Limbaugh opposes,[110] as did Lamont's opponent, Senator Joe Lieberman. Senator Lieberman then beat Lamont by running as an Independent.
New Fallujah
Auburn Hills, Michigan, home of the Detroit Pistons. Limbaugh gave the city this nickname after the 2004 Pacers-Pistons Brawl at the Palace of Auburn Hills.[111] He recently (2006) indicated on air that out of respect for Detroit area listeners (and the term's lack of context due to the story's age) he will no longer use the term.[citation needed]
Nikita Dean
Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean. Limbaugh assigned this nickname to Dean in the 2004 election cycle as a reference to Nikita Khrushchev. Limbaugh said Dean had positioned himself so far to the political left that Vladimir Putin was to his right.[112]
Ninth Circus Court of Appeals
The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, noted for its size and for its controversial decisions that are reversed by the U.S. Supreme Court more often than those of other courts.[113][114]
Norks, The
The Communist North Korean government[115]
Nostrilitis, Nostrildamus
Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA)[116]


Obama Daily Tracking Poll

Obama Care
Single payer health care as advocated by the Obama Administration
Operation Chaos
An effort promoted by Limbaugh to cause chaos in the Democratic Party primaries by encouraging Republican voters to either cross over or change parties (depending on state election law) in order to vote for whichever candidate is trailing, thus prolonging the primary process.[118][119]
"Osama" Obama
President Barack Obama (former Senator, D-Ill.). Limbaugh uses this alternate name for Obama as a reference to deceased Senator Ted Kennedy's (D-MA) mis-speak during a luncheon at the National Press Club (Jan 11, 2005). Kennedy, making mention of Obama's large win during the 2004 elections, stumbled over Obama's first name, stating "Osama bin Laden, Osama Obama, Obamamam." Limbaugh has been incorrectly cited as the originator of this 'nickname' by other news agencies, such as MSNBC and CNN.[120]
Oval Orifice
The Oval Office[121] satirizing Bill Clinton shenanigans there.

Obscene profit break. Limbaughs unapologetic description of a sponsors commercial time. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:584:100:EC60:1C71:CA54:5863:1352 (talk) 01:37, 26 April 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Pajama Boy - Gen Y or Millennial who lives in his parents basement, never lounges in PJ's while blogging and posting liberal dogma on social media.


Queen Bee Nancy (QBN)
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.[123] Limbaugh coined this nickname after reading an article about supposed "queen bee syndrome" among working women and claimed that Pelosi's attitude toward her fellow congresswomen (such as fellow California Democrat Jane Harman) fit the description.[124] Speaker Nancy Pelosi supported Barack H. Obama over Hillary R. Clinton, and was vocal about it.


Racist, Sexist, Bigot, Homophobe
Laundry list of stereotypical things alleged about conservatives by liberals. Usually used in a sentence as, "As you know, clichés exist about conservatives: racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe. Now, those are all false."[125]
Rasheed Limbaqi
Limbaugh's portrayal of a fictional talk show host in pre-war Iraq, broadcasting from "Saddam Hussein's Communications Plaza" on the "EIJ Network" as Iraq's "voice of defiance in a time of international appeasement." Rush's standard "Open Line Friday" was parodied with Rasheed's "One Phone Friday", in which one phone call is taken in seven hours of broadcasting.[126]
The Rev'rennnnd Jack'suhhnnnnnn
Rush's imitation of William F. Buckley’s pronunciation of Reverend Jackson’s name when Reverend Jackson appeared on Firing Line. He almost always pronounces the civil rights leader's name this way on his radio program, but seems reluctant to do so in TV interviews.[127]
Rio Linda
When "dumbing down" a concept, Limbaugh will begin it by saying "for those of you in Rio Linda..." (Meaning Rio Linda, California). On April 20, 2007, he described it as a town in the vicinity of Sacramento where he found front yards with two cars jacked up on concrete blocks and washing machines on the front porch.[128] In order to help elevate the status of the town Limbaugh offered to allow the town council to rename the town to "Limbaugh, California". The town refused his offer, which Limbaugh felt was a stupid decision.[129] Because of this when he feels like he needs to explain something to those who are not very intelligent he'll say "for those of you from Rio Linda". Sometimes (especially after the 2000 Presidential election aftermath) he'll also add West Palm Beach, Florida, and say, "For those of you in Rio Linda and West Palm Beach..." or simply "Rio West Palm" for short. In March 2009, he added Port St. Lucie, Florida due to the city's high foreclosure rate and the McNugget 911 call incident which occurred in the city limits, sometimes referring to the city as "Rio Linda East".[130]


Skullsful of mush
See "Young skulls full of mush".
Seminar caller
A seminar caller is a caller engaged in astroturfing; said caller usually relies on deceiving call screeners to get through to Limbaugh and other hosts.[131] The term derives from seminars and other methods to enlist and instruct callers.[132][133][134]
Senator Dick Turban
Senator Richard Durbin, (D-Ill.). Limbaugh began using this moniker after Durbin made controversial remarks on the Senate floor which according to Durbin's critics amounted to a comparison of the alleged abuse of detainees at Guantanamo Bay by U.S. military personnel, with the war crimes of Pol Pot and Hitler. Limbaugh claimed that liberal Democrats in Congress favored Islamic terrorists over the United States Military fighting them in Iraq and Afghanistan.[135] Senator Dick Durbin apologized the next day for his comparison of treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay to Nazis, Soviet gulags and Cambodia's Pol Pot.
Senator "Chuck-U" Schumer
Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY). Limbaugh used this nickname primarily during the investigations into the run on IndyMac Bank, in which the Senator was involved.[136] Federal regulators pointedly cited US Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, in explaining the bank's failure. Limbaugh uses the term often, like when Senator Schumer said he would hold hearings on the Supreme Court for striking down parts of McCain-Feingold campaigning rules.[137]
Senator Helmet Head
Senator Byron Dorgan (D-ND), referring to his combover.[138]
"Sheets" Byrd
Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), who Limbaugh refers to as "Sheets" because Byrd is a former "Kleagle" (Ku Klux Klan recruiter).[139]
Soup Line America
Sometimes referenced as "the soup-line mentality."[140] Portrayal of the economy by Democratic politicians and the media as being in a disastrous Depression-era state even when unemployment is low and other economic statistics are strong.[141]
Stack of Stuff
The pile of magazine and news clippings, faxes, and printed e-mail messages accumulated during show prep, background material generally related to the show's daily content. Also, a number of relevant web links offered to subscribers of his Web site, culled from a variety of current on-line news organizations, highlighting various issues of the day.[142]
St. Louis Descratch
St. Louis Post-Dispatch[143] From the early days when Rush worked in the area.
State-Run Media (or State-Controlled Media)
Mainstream media, particularly since Barack Obama assumed office in January 2009.[144][145][146] Cf: "Drive-by Media".
Stuck on Stupid
A phrase that General Russel L. Honoré (commander of forces in New Orleans post-Hurricane Katrina) said to a reporter who repeated (and rephrased) a biased question asked previously by a different reporter.[147]
Swimmer, The
Senator Ted Kennedy who was able to swim away from his sinking car but failed to ask for help for his drowning passenger until the next day in the Chappaquiddick incident.[148] The incident resulted in the drowning of a passenger in Ted Kennedy's vehicle, Mary Jo Kopechne, a former campaign aide for Robert Kennedy.


Testicle lockbox
A metaphorical device used by Limbaugh to suggest that interviewers of Hillary Clinton are not critical enough. In the metaphor, when Clinton is interviewed by the male hosts of talk shows, she puts their testicles in a lockbox before the program and they are only returned if the interviewer was not critical.[149]
Top ten female names
Was first referenced on June 15, 2007.[150] As of October 2, 2009, Limbaugh has 34 "Top Ten names..." including: Kathy, Kristin, Kim, Ellen, Elizabeth, Allison, Laurie, Leslie, Lauren, Laura, Nancy, Nina, Tina, Tanisha, Tracy, Prissy, Sarah, Susan, Barbara, Barbie (2.26.10), Melanie, Martha, Megan, Michelle, Morgan, Cheryl, Amy, Jeanette, Jenna, Jenny, Jennifer, Jill, Jane, Sissy, Valerie and most recently on 2/26/2010 he added Barbie. Rush's assistant Cookie Gleason has dug up 33 top-ten female names out of the archives.[151] On February 7, 2008 Limbaugh admitted that he does not know how many names are really on this list. On May 2, 2008 Limbaugh stated that there was no system involved in this list, only to be friendly to the current caller.
"Teleprompter of the United States." First referenced on March 18, 2009.[152] Rush believes POTUS Obama's eloquence is scripted.


Uglo Americans
Another minority group to parody subdividing Americans, now including the ugly among us.[153][154][155]


White trash cake
Yellow cake with white frosting. This is also Limbaugh's favorite cake (as he revealed on the air on his 56th birthday).[156] The annual tradition of cake from staff continued on Limbaugh's 59th birthday, 12 January 2010.
Worst President in All of Our Lifetimes and Beyond, The
Former President Jimmy Carter[22]


Young skulls full of mush
Young people.[157] Rush clarifies: “Young listeners to this show are all brilliant and educated.”[158]


Zip, zero, nada
The null set, including Spanish for 'nothing.' A term meaning no problem,[159] no chance,[160] or 'none'.[161]

Dramatic radio props[edit]

Golden EIB Microphone
Prestigious Attila the Hun Chair
Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies

These are often combined to form a phrase Limbaugh frequently uses to introduce himself: "Firmly ensconced behind the Golden EIB Microphone in the prestigious Attila the Hun Chair at the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies." These phrases date back to his days under the name of "Jeff Christie," a top 40 disc jockey in Pittsburgh. The "Golden EIB Microphone", however, is a real object, gold-plated by the manufacturer and presented to Rush.

Nicknames Limbaugh uses for himself[edit]

Throughout the years on The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh has established several nicknames with which he describes himself on the air. Others also ascribe nicknames or titles that Limbaugh then uses for entertainment or political satire.[162][163]

Titular Head of the Remains of the Republican Party[164][165][166]
Professor of the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies
Commander in Chief, U.S. Operation Chaos (a.k.a. CINCUSOC)
Chief Waga-Waga El Rushbo of the El Conservo Tribe
America's Truth-Detector
America's Anchorman
The Last Man Standing
A Real Man, A Living Legend, A Way of Life
A Weapon of Mass Instruction
Doctor of Democracy[167][168]
The Fourth Branch of Government
The Maharush-Neeshie (or Maha Rushie)
El Rushbo ("little Spanish lingo, there", in Rush's own words.)
El Blimpo (a self-effacing reference to his previous weight problems)
Mount Rushbo (see previous entry)
Chief of the Patriotism Police
This refers to the criticism by Molly Ivins of him and others in the new media.
The Mr. Big of the Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy[169]
The most dangerous man in America
On March 3, 1991, Jon Kleinman wrote a letter to the editor of the Los Angeles Times Magazine stating "Radio is powerful. Limbaugh's views go unchecked. It is my view that he's one of the most dangerous men in America."[170][171]
Harmless loveable little fuzzball and all around good/nice guy
Nickname Limbaugh created for himself in response to the above claim that he is the "most dangerous man in America."[172][173]
Talent, on loan, from God(-d)
Limbaugh states in his books that his talent for conservative political commentary—as well as everyone's special talents—come from God, and they are "on loan" since we get to use these talents only as God allows. Often, the D in God is emphasized, to the point that "God" has two syllables.[174][175]
The man who is running America (you know it and I know it)
Limbaugh uses this phrase in mockery of a comment made by Senator Trent Lott In June 2007. Senator Lott claimed that "Talk radio is running the country" Limbaugh has long claimed that "he is talk radio"[176] "You know it and I know it" started after a particularly "spirited" caller used the phrase repeatedly during his call.
The Mandarin of Talk Radio
Reporter Major Garrett called Limbaugh the "mandarin of conservative talk radio" during a Fox News Channel report on talk radio's influence on the immigration debate on May 30, 2007. Limbaugh adopted the nickname on the air and in radio promos the next day[177] meaning marked by elaborately refined language, literary style, and presentation.
Limbaugh used this description of himself after reading a press release that called men who "embrace the positive aspects of their masculinity or ‘M-ness’ (e.g., confidence, leadership, passion, compassion) without giving in to the stereotypes that give guys a bad name (e.g., disrespect toward women, emotional emptiness, complete ignorance of anything cultural outside of sports, beer, burgers, and athletic shoes)," Limbaugh declared that "[b]y this definition, I'm one."[178] He was incorrectly quoted by Beth Thames in the Huntsville Times as having called himself the "uber-male"[179]
One of the 10 most fascinating people
Limbaugh was interviewed by Barbara Walters for a story on the 10 most fascinating people on December 4, 2008.[180][181]
Radio Personality of the Decade[182][183]
Rush Hudson Limbaugh (Mmm, Mmm, Mmm!)
Play on "Barack Hussein Obama (Mmm mmm mmm!)" After public elementary school children were taught to sing praises to President Obama,[184] the EIB production team had school-age children sing praises to show host Rush Limbaugh.[185]
Executive Director and Lead Researcher of the Forthcoming “Turtle Preservation Society of Palm Beach, Florida”.[186][187][188]
