Rush Hudson Limbaugh III (fonetski: Raš Hadson Limbo, 12. januar 1951 - ) je američki radio i televizijski voditelj, pisac i konzervativni politički komentator koji se smatra najuticajnijom ličnošću današnje američke desnice. Limbaugh vodi The Rush Limbaugh Show koji se u SAD distribuira preko Premiere Radio Networksa i predstavlja najslušaniju talk-radio emisiju u SAD.

Rošen je u porodici koja je imala dugu tradiciju sudjelovanja u republikanskoj politici a karijeru je započeo sa šesnaest godina radeći u lokalnoj radio-stanici. Godine 1984. se nakon niza poslova vezanih uz radio u Sacramentu zaposlio kao voditelj talk show emisije na stanici KFBK, koja dan-danas prenosi njegovu emisiju. Tamo je razvio specifičan stil emisije koja nije imala gostiju, nego isključivo njegov konzervativni komentar tekućih događaja. Godine 1988. se prebacio u New York gdje je počeo nacionalnu distribuciju svoje emisije preko stanice WABC. Ta je emisija postajal sve popularija i učinila ga poznatim širom SAD.

1990-ih je Limbaugh svoju popularnost prenio i na knjige i televiziju. Sa knjigama The Way Things Ought to Be (1992) i See, I Told You So (1993) je došao na bestseler-listu New York Timesa, a od 1992. do 1998. je vodio polusatnu TV-emisiju.

Mnogi Limbaughu i njegovom uticaju na mase glasača često pripisuju trijumf republikanaca na izborima 1994.
