The syndicated radio host, 52, will appear weekly on ESPN's Sunday NFL Countdown starting on Sept. 7.
SI: Won't you have a bias against Broncos running back Clinton Portis?
Limbaugh: There will be no bias against any player because of his name or party affiliation.
SI: Why do you think our presidents have loved football so much?
Limbaugh: Because football is a combination of brains and strategy and then execution. I've even talked to Henry Kissinger about football. His favorite team is the 49ers. I asked him, "What is it about the 49ers you like?" And he said, "They have a clever offense."
SI: What kind of NFL head coaches would Bill Clinton and George W. Bush make?
Limbaugh (laughs): Bill Clinton? I think he would have trouble keeping his eye on the field rather than on the cheerleaders. With Bush, it'd be, Go for the jugular, and win from the first quarter on.
SI: How would you analyze your skills as an offensive lineman at Central High in Cape Girardeau, Missouri?
Limbaugh: Pretty pathetic. I went out to get girls; it didn't work. Then I became a kicker so I wouldn't have to face contact. They let me kick, but I still had to face contact in drills so I got into radio.
SI: What's your role going to be on Countdown?
