On his fascination with all things LGBT
"When a gay person turns his back on you, it is anything but an insult; it's an invitation."  (The Most Dangerous Man in America:  Rush Limbaugh's Assault on Reason)

On his unbounded respect for African-Americans:
Responding to a caller who said black people should have a greater voice on issues: "They are 12 percent of the population. Who the hell cares?"   (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting)

"Have you ever noticed how all composite pictures of wanted criminals resemble Jesse Jackson?" (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting)
"The NAACP should have riot rehearsal. They should get a liquor store and practice robberies." (Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting)

On his deep knowledge of sports:
"I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well. There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."   (ESPN)

"I think it's time to get rid of this whole National Basketball Association. Call it the TBA, the Thug Basketball Association, and stop calling them teams. Call 'em gangs." (Media Matters)

"The NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips without any weapons. There, I said it."  (The Rush Limbaugh Show)
