LIMBAUGH: I don't see how I can do it. I'm too famous. This business about moderating Republican debates. Did you see that out there? There's a suggestion that's been made, a lot of people have made the suggestion. Cal Thomas has made it, that me and Sean Hannity and Mark Levin would nominate -- moderate Republican primary debates. I think I'd overshadow it. I think I'm too famous. It'd be a tough call. It'd be a real, real, real tough call. Well, yeah, yeah, yeah. It could get ratings, I mean there's no question about that. Anyway, it's an idea that's out there.
Now, some people misunderstood and thought that it was moderating debates on mainstream TV networks. That would never happen. These would be debates that are strictly for a conservative Republican media and audience.
