Clintons Think Rush Has a Crush

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Everybody's buzzing, ladies and gentlemen -- bzz bzz bzz bzz bzz -- about this exchange with George Stephanopoulos yesterday on This Week with Hillary Clinton.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Rush Limbaugh is asking Republicans to come out and vote for you in order to divide the party.

HILLARY: He's always had a crush on me. (laughter)

RUSH: Hillary Clinton saying I've always had a crush on her. Let's go back to January 10th on this program and me.

RUSH ARCHIVE: The acceptance speech after she had won the primary, I thought she looked better than I had ever seen her. When she came out late at night, gave the acceptance speech, I thought -- she got the hair down, you know, every day during the Clinton years is a different hat, different hair band, different hairstyle. She got the hair thing down. She looked glowing. She looked genuinely happy, Mr. Snerdley -- she did. At that acceptance speech, she looked genuinely -- she even looked sexy. I thought she looked sexy.

RUSH: That was January 10th on this program, complimenting Mrs. Clinton's appearance. This morning on Fox & Friends the cohost Gretchen Carlson talked to Hillary Clinton. They had this exchange.

CARLSON: Do you also have an advisor for niceness? Because that's been one of the biggest raps against you --

HILLARY: (cackling)

CARLSON: -- and things seem to have changed for you recently. Now that line yesterday about Rush Limbaugh, who's helping you?

HILLARY: Nobody. I'm just having a good time. I think this is so much fun, campaigning across our country, and especially these last couple of weeks, in North Carolina and Indiana. People have been wonderful. The spring is here, everything is blooming. I mean, how could you not have a good time? It's been wonderful.

RUSH: Did you catch that? This is pure disrespect. Gretchen Carlson asks Mrs. Clinton who's helping you? And Hillary says, "Nobody." Nobody. Her husband let her down every step of the way. If it weren't for me and Operation Chaos, she wouldn't be where she is. She knows it. She knows it, and so does Obama, ladies and gentlemen. Then this morning on Scarborough's show on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have this exchange with Hillary.

SCARBOROUGH: I'm a little disappointed. Senator Hillary Clinton in Greenville, North Carolina, I had no idea that Rush Limbaugh had a crush on you, too. I'm flabbergasted.

HILLARY: (cackling)

BRZEZINSKI: Oh, boy.

SCARBOROUGH: Shocked, stunned.

HILLARY: Don't you think -- (cackle) -- don't you think we've caused a little cognitive dissonance out there?

SCARBOROUGH: I think so. That's one way to put it.

RUSH: Now, this crush business, ladies and gentlemen, I think I understand it now. I do. Mrs. Clinton is saying I have a crush on her. Obviously they think this in the Clinton household. So this probably explains why Bill Clinton hit on my date at the Kobe Club in New York last year. He used the mayor of Los Angeles to distract me while he came along and started chatting up my date. Then he brought Ron Burkle over to distract me, and he came over to the table three times. (doing Clinton impression) "Hey, Limbaugh, you're looking really good." I shook his hand, he left, comes back, the mayor of Los Angeles, I thought it was a Secret Service agent, maybe a shoeshine guy. Turns out he gives me his card, I said, "Oh, my gosh, it's the mayor of Los Angeles." I stood up, I said, "Hello, Mr. Villaraigosa." We started chatting, a minute later I took a glance to the left and Clinton's face is two inches from my date's. I was distracted. So obviously Clinton has known of this in the household of the Clintons, that I had a crush on his wife. He probably heard that sound bite on January 10th, (doing Clinton impression) "My God, nobody's ever called her sexy. What the hell's going on here?" This is her way of thanking me, by the way, for Operation Chaos.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: I just got a note from Cookie up in New York. "I'm worried," she says. "You did not deny the crush on Hillary." I wrote her back, you know, an instant message abbreviation, "LOL" for "laughing out loud." She writes back, "I'm serious. This could hurt you."

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: The audio sound bites that have happened over the weekend about Operation Chaos. Because the Drive-By Media is doing everything it can to say there is no Operation Chaos, it's ineffective, it doesn't matter, and yet others in the Drive-By Media can't stop talking about it, cannot stop analyzing it, cannot stop trying to figure it out. It's hilarious. We start with Mrs. Clinton on Stephanopoulos' show yesterday.

STEPHANOPOULOS: Rush Limbaugh is asking Republicans to come out and vote for you in order to divide the party.

HILLARY: He's always had a crush on me. (laughter)

RUSH: Mrs. Clinton saying that I have always had a crush on her. You know, it's probably just the other way around. I've told you about the time she followed me in an elevator in a New York hotel and hit the stop button and asked to be treated like a woman because it hadn't happened in such a long time, but I also said this back on January the 10th on this very program.

RUSH ARCHIVE: The acceptance speech after she had won the primary, I thought she looked better than I had ever seen her. When she came out late at night, gave the acceptance speech, I thought -- she got the hair down, you know, every day during the Clinton years is a different hat, different hair band, different hairstyle. She got the hair thing down. She looked glowing. She looked genuinely happy, Mr. Snerdley -- she did. At that acceptance speech, she looked genuinely -- she even looked sexy. I thought she looked sexy.

RUSH: And at that point, Cookie Gleason, Cookie Prayias, up in New York, just panicked, and thought I was losing it, and she's still panicked over the fact that Hillary says that I have a crush on her and Cookie hasn't heard me deny it today. Look, if Hillary thinks I've got a crush on her, so does Bill. The Clinton household thinks that I've got a crush on her, and that would explain why Clinton hit on my date, about a year ago in New York at the Kobe Club. Now, I told the story to Martha MacCallum a half hour ago, she didn't think I was telling the truth. She thought I was telling a joke but it's the truth. I'm sitting there minding my own business and Clinton came to the table three different times. The second time he brought the mayor of Los Angeles to distract me and after I'm talking to the mayor of Los Angeles for about a minute-and-a-half, I glanced to my left and Clinton's face is inches away from my date. He came back a third time with Ron Burkle. It was at the Kobe Club in New York. It was written about, there were witnesses in there. People with their cell phones were taking pictures of this. Martha didn't believe me. So clearly, Clinton thinks that I've got a crush on his wife, and that's why he hit on my date at the Kobe Club. Well, this was discussed all over the Drive-By Media. First on Fox & Friends this morning, Gretchen Carlson was discussing this with Mrs. Clinton.

CARLSON: Do you also have an advisor for niceness? Because that's been one of the biggest raps against you --

HILLARY: (cackling)

CARLSON: -- and things seem to have changed for you recently. Now that line yesterday about Rush Limbaugh, who's helping you?

HILLARY: Nobody. I'm just having a good time. I think this is so much fun, campaigning across our country, and especially these last couple of weeks in North Carolina and Indiana. People have been wonderful. The spring is here, everything is blooming. I mean, how could you not have a good time? It's been wonderful.

RUSH: She's denying me. She says nobody's helping her. She knows full well that Operation Chaos is helping her and in fact this business about my having a crush on her, that's her way of thanking me. You know, that was sort of cute, to say I have a crush on her. Then this morning on Morning Joe, Scarborough's show on PMSNBC, he and the cohost Mika Brzezinski discuss this.

SCARBOROUGH: I'm a little disappointed. Senator Hillary Clinton in Greenville, North Carolina, I had no idea that Rush Limbaugh had a crush on you, too. I'm flabbergasted.

HILLARY: (cackling)

BRZEZINSKI: Oh, boy.

SCARBOROUGH: Shocked, stunned.

HILLARY: Don't you think -- (cackle) -- don't you think we've caused a little cognitive dissonance out there?

SCARBOROUGH: I think so. That's one way to put it.

RUSH: Do you hear how happy she sounds? She sounds schoolgirl happy. Mrs. Clinton sounds schoolgirl happy. She's laughing and cackling it all up out there. You remember, my friends, she's saying it's so much fun out there now, I have a crush on her, she's having more fun than she's had in a long time, she's winning these primaries, or coming close. Obama hasn't won diddly-squat since February 22nd. But do you remember before Operation Chaos, she was crying about how hard the campaign was? Remember she got this planted question up in New Hampshire? How do you do it? How do you do your hair? And she started crying, here came the tear. "It's hard. It's very hard," she said. And we at Operation Chaos came to her rescue, her emotional rescue, Rolling Stones. We've got the audio. If we wanted to go back to the archives we've got the audio of Mrs. Clinton talking about how hard it was with the tear and now she's talking about how much fun it is. So it's clear, ladies and gentlemen, that there has been a sizable emotional and attitudinal shift in her campaign, brought about by Operation Chaos. I would go so far as to say, ladies and gentlemen, I and all of us at Operation Chaos are doing the job for her that her husband can't do or won't do.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We're going to illustrate here, this is Mrs. Clinton, ladies and gentlemen, January 7th, 2008, in the morning in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and this is just a little bit here of what she said on that date.

HILLARY: It's not easy. It's not easy. Um, and I couldn't do it if I just didn't, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do. You know, I have so many opportunities from this country. I just don't want to see us fall backwards. No. So --

RUSH: Started crying, clearly not having a good time. She's just lost Iowa, which wasn't supposed to happen, and then this morning on the Fox News Channel.

CARLSON: Do you also have an advisor for niceness? Because that's been one of the biggest raps against you --

HILLARY: (cackling)

CARLSON: -- and things seem to have changed for you recently. Now that line yesterday about Rush Limbaugh, who's helping you?

HILLARY: Nobody. I'm just having a good time. I think this is so much fun, campaigning across our country, and especially these last couple of weeks in North Carolina and Indiana. People have been wonderful. The spring is here, everything is blooming. I mean, how could you not have a good time? It's been wonderful.

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, the contrast is stark and undeniable. Everything's blooming. She's got schoolgirl giddiness after announcing yesterday she thinks I have a crush on her. You heard the contrast. Something has clearly changed out there.
