Palm Beach County’s Limbaugh, Coulter, Ruddy on conservative clout list; Rubio not in top 25

by George Bennett | September 16th, 2013

Palm Beacher Rush Limbaugh tops conservative’s list of “The 25 Most Influential People On The Right For 2013.”

Four U.S. Senators make the list — but not Florida Sen. and onetime tea party fave Marco Rubio. Rubio is one of 30 people making Townhall’s honorable mention list. Also getting honorable mention are Palm Beacher Ann Coulter and Newsmax CEO Christopher Ruddy of West Palm Beach.

Senators deemed more influential on the right than Rubio include emerging conservative stars Ted Cruz (#9) and Rand Paul (#14). Sen. John McCain is no favorite of conservatives, but Townhall ranks him #11, explaining that “because of his stature and his shamelessness about betraying the people he represents, McCain is the biggest Republican power player in the Senate.” Sen. Mitch McConnell is called “timid” and a “terrible communicator” but ranks #18 by virtue of his position as Senate Minority Leader.

Other notable Floridians who didn’t make Townhall’s top 25 or one of the 30 honorable mention slots include former Gov. Jeb Bush and former U.S. Rep. Allen West.

    Why would Allen West even be considered? He’s just a mouthpiece now. Nobody cares what he thinks or says.

    Getting around: Vegas is compact and pedestrian-friendly so it's easy to get around on foot, although the strip is deceptively long so it's best to leave the heels behind during the day. There are numerous transport options, from renting a limousine, riding the modern monorail, hailing a cab or simply hopping on a city bus. If you win big and want to splash the cash, you can always take a helicopter flight down the strip instead.

    What to see? If you can drag yourself away from the roulette wheel, there is plenty to see and do in Vegas. Marvel at the fountains outside The Bellagio hotel and casino, where dancing water soars 240 feet in the air above an eight-acre lake, choreographed to music. See a volcano that 'erupts' every 15 minutes outside The Mirage, and visit its sister property, Treasure Island, for the nightly pirate show. Watch a dazzling light and sound show at The Fremont Street Experience mall in downtown Vegas and observe an indoor lightening storm at the Desert Passage shopping arcade. Or why not take a gondola ride on a canal at the Venetian Resort Hotel Casino? Thrill-seekers should head to the Stratosphere at the end of the strip: a 1,149-foot tower which has three hair-raising rides at its peak. Views from the top-floor observation deck are spectacular and you can also dine at its revolving restaurant. Finally, you can't leave Vegas without taking in a show at one of its spectacular venues, where the world's top performers grace the stage. For tickets, visit .
