RUSH: Folks, let me just tell you, last night, if it's any indication, I mean this thing is so dull, this convention is so dull, I shoulda taken a vacation week this week. Where are the Democrats I know? They presented an image of themselves last night that is not reality, which they had to do. We're going to break it all down for you here, and we're going to try to keep a straight face as we go through most of this. Great to have you with us.

Ladies and gentlemen, if we are to accept Michelle Obama's speech at face value last night, then why would she say this was a downright mean country and that this was the first time in her adult life she was proud of her county? Which Michelle Obama are we supposed to believe? I'm going to answer all these questions. But before we get to that, after her speech last night, they went to the video camera and on the other end of the camera was The Messiah, the Lord Barack Obama Most Merciful, and he and his daughter Sasha had this little exchange.
OBAMA: I'm here with the Girardeau family here in St. Louis. This is Jim and Alicia, and, like us --
SASHA: Hi, Girardeau family!
OBAMA: -- and -- and they have just been wonderful hosts the whole time that we've been watching.
SASHA: Daddy, what city are you in?
OBAMA: I'm in Kansas City, sweetie.
RUSH: What happened was, see, I'm from Missouri, and this is a gaffe. You people don't understand this. This is a gaffe. Kansas City and St. Louis hate each other. There is a rivalry. They despise each other and the screen said that Obama was in Kansas City. He said he was in St. Louis, and then his daughter said, (paraphrasing) "Daddy, I don't understand this." So he says, "I'm here with the Girardeau family here in St. Louis." The good news about all this, folks, is that Obama was broadcasting from a stranger's house and not a relative's hut. (laughing) I mean, you have to find the positives in all of this. It's not looking good.
