Rush Says Thank You

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, I knew this was going to happen. We have a lot of archival items that I'm not going to possibly be able to squeeze in in our remaining moments, and no reason to stop, we could throw a couple of them in next week on a day or two because they're fun. The gurgling cod was the one I had coming up next that I received on my first trip to Boston, but its length is too much, it won't squeeze in. I wanted to spend a little bit more time on the whole appreciation. You know,...

Ed McLaughlin, Founder of EIB

RUSH: Speaking of Ed McLaughlin, he had a greater tribute earlier in the program. I want to tell you a little bit about Ed. I've written about him extensively in my first book, The Way Things Ought To Be. In that book, I pretty much explained how the EIB Network started. But all the things that people have heard about this network, the program, all of the myths out there that there was some giant strategic meeting between powers in broadcasting and politics to fill a conservative niche in the...

Edgar, thank you for waiting, welcome to Open Line Friday.CALLER: Rush, I'm delighted to get you on this special day and to give you back my vote to continue running this country. If you'll remember, I called you and unjustly chastised you last year because I thought you were defending the Republicans for bringing to closure McCain's immigration bill.

Press Applauds Paterson on Rush

RUSH: Yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, we talked about the state of New York, how they're out of money. Their deficit is ballooning. They've got a combined tax rate, New Yorkers who own property and produce in New York State and New York City pay a combined tax rate higher than the tax rate in the European Union. They pay a higher tax rate than Europeans, and the state's broke, and it still isn't enough! They want more! I said, "One of the problems with New York is it's a welfare state within...

20th Anniversary Flashback: Rush's Grandfather and Mother

RUSH: I got an e-mail from good friends of mine, Steve and Kathy Abernathy in New Orleans, met them both when she was the manager at Brennan's in the French Quarter. She said, "You've got to play some of the interview that you did with your grandfather on his 100th birthday." And the copy that we have of that, it's unfortunate, we're going to have to do some major EQ work with it to make it so we can air it, because the sound quality is such it would distract, but we do have a number of excerpts...
