    I have seen AC working out at the gym in Los Angeles and he's in great shape. To me, AC is a great inspiration because he works so much and still finds time for his health. Huge guns, too, no joke.

    You were wrong in your opening remarks. Even you were being cynical, it wasn't clear you were. He is not the "last bastion". Listen to Laura Ingraham or 20 other conservative, successful (large audience) commentators.
    It's unfortunate you focus on Rush's tease because his more pointed remarks have to do with your disguised liberalism.
    Did you see the election results last night? The Tea Party and conservatives spoke loudly – and will in November. Meanwhile, CNN, losing market share, is propping up Obama. Smell the coffee, CNN, if you care about revenue & earning. America is center-right, not left. Alas, can you act on that truth?? We think not.

    I wonder if Rush was mistaken with "Bradley Cooper"...that would probably make more sense

    Is Rush confusing the gossip columns with real news again? He just can't seem to keep those two things straight.

    Lol, hilarious that Limbaugh uses gossip columns as evidence. Cooper nailed it.

    Anderson, what a classy and cryptic response..It is obvious that your parents brought yourself up to take the high road .....One would think that someday, the response once uttered to senator Joe McCarthy will be said to Rush Limbaugh..."Sir, have you no decency?"

      I suggest that you do a background check on that comment. I was watching the Army-McCarthy hearing that day and saw the whole thing not just the "sound bite" that appeared on the evening news. McCarthy & Welsh had made an agreement not to bring up some irrevelant information about Roy Cohn, McCarthy's assistant, and a young lawyer on Welsh's staff. During the hearing, Welsh was questioning Roy Cohn and began making "double-entrendre" remarks about Cohn's sexual habits. Cohn was not disconcerted and verbally fenced with Welsh. In my opinion, Welsh was loosing the battle of wits. However, McCarthy was getting madder and madder at Welsh's conduct and finally blurted out the information about the young lawyer. That was what Welsh wanted and he made his famous "no decency" remark.

    I watched for years as Keith Olbermann gave too much attention to Bill O'Reilly. Surely, you must understand that these ego barges like Bill and Rush love to be talked about, even if you're spot on critical. Why continue to do it?

    Thank you Anderson for steping on that little roach Rush.

    You are a great reporter many of us remember you reporting among the floating corpses, government imcompetence and civil unrest in New Orleans. You kept your cool and reported instead of spinning the story to show the governments total misunderstanding of the situation. Brownie Brown and his hourly Press Cinference's showed America that the Bush Administration had no idea what was happening in New Orleans. I actually called Emergency Management FEMA and offered to buy a TV for Mr. Brown so that he could see what was happening in New Orleans.

    I thank you again for the great reporting you provided in New Orleans.

    Back to Rush, he is a biggotted racist and will fall out of favor with the majority of Americans. His following will be limited to the think alike crowd.

    Go, Anderson! Nice way to put Rush in his place.

    Mr. Cooper, Nice job of eviscerating Limbaugh. Silver Fox has claws. That "bar" and "gym" stuff was an oily inference to your perceived sexual orientation which Rush apparently envies, chomping a big fat cigar 24/7 as he does. Why doesn't Limbaugh just stuff a tobacco-scented dildo in his mouth and be done with it? I do pity his poor arteries.

    I think your response to Rush was simply priceless and boy did you take the high road. Oh the irony that this barftastic Beluga is mocking you for staying fit and trim yet paints you as galloping from gym to bar like your life is nothing but a series of lunges and shots. As a Christian, I try to see the best in people but man do I often stare at my floor after hearing this guy and think just come and get him.

    I loved your "digs" at Rush tonight on the Ridiculist. Keep up the good work! LOL

    Rush was being kind saying you were at the gym. He usually says you are at the nail salon.
