  1. Knew him only through his guest hosting of the Rush Limbaugh Show, but that was more than enough to show me what a great conservative he was. Also a champion of people of color everywhere, although you wouldn’t know that to read and hear some of the snarky comments being made by liberal black Americans upon learning of his death. I will miss him greatly. RIP
