This button is representative of those who dislike and disagree with the opinions of radio talk show host, writer, and conservative political commentator Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh is known for his ultraconservative and controversial opinions. His national talk radio program The Rush Limbaugh Show debuted in 1988 in New York City and within five years became the most popular talk radio program in the U.S. Limbaugh’s commentary often enraged the specific groups he targeted, including feminists, the homeless, and the Democratic Party. Despite being seen as controversial and divisive, he was credited with helping the Republican Party win control of both houses of Congress in 1994 and was a key figure in the effort to impeach President Bill Clinton in 1998.
