On his show yesterday, Rush Limbaugh gave a moving tribute to Steve Jobs and Apple. The Apple products, Rush said, created “child-like wonderment” in him. And what impressed Rush so much about Jobs is what you would expect, if you know Rush: Jobs embodied excellence.

“I love greatness,” Limbaugh said. “I’m mesmerized by it and excited by it.” He went on to say he finds it exhilarating to meet people who are the best at what they do. This is something that transcends political ideology; as Rush says, that Jobs was a liberal didn’t matter at all.

It’s a lovely, heartfelt tribute done by the master of one craft to the master of another. You can listen to the whole thing here:
