RUSH: This is Emerson. Nice to have you with us, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet, sir.
CALLER: I was upset I didn't know how to get enough people excited or upset with their politicians. For Americans, the DREAM Act is a nightmare, and $8.2 billion being spent on illegal kids to go to college. How many children are just dying to go to college in their own country and can't afford it? And I just can't see where there's anybody revved up, or enough people that they really should get on it. It should be on the talk shows all Sunday. I called the National Republican Committee, and I said, "You should be on the talk shows." I called my congressman. I said to myself, "I gotta do something about this," so I picked up the phone and I got through, so I guess it was meant to be. I just can't believe that we're doing this. It's counterproductive and a joke.
RUSH: Now, wait a sec. Are you seriously concerned the DREAM Act is gonna pass?
CALLER: I would worry that it would even be considered, but they say Harry Reid --
RUSH: Well, Harry Reid's considering it, but this is to follow through on his outreach to Hispanic voters for his election campaign. Nobody expects the DREAM Act to have any action.
CALLER: I hope not. I really hope not.
RUSH: No, no, no, it isn't gonna happen. It isn't gonna happen. Look, they would have to get that done in the next two weeks. They're not gonna get that done. The DREAM Act is gonna die with the Democrat majority dying once the new Congress is sworn in. When these guys go home for Christmas that's it, they don't have enough time to do that, "don't ask, don't tell," they don't have time to do anything. It's all just talk. This is all just talk to try to appeal to the Hispanic voters, pure and simple. Now, they'd love to do it if they could, make no mistake about it. But they're not gonna have time.
CALLER: I had heard you talk several years ago about Algore's college indiscretion, whatever he did, and he said the oceans were gonna rise 20 feet and he just bought a $9 million beach house in California. I don't understand this, who's being told what?
RUSH: You are suffering from an affliction known as logic. And you don't see that similar logic expressed elsewhere in popular regions of our culture like the media, and that's why you're frustrated.
RUSH: You're right, Algore says the sea levels are gonna rise 20 feet and then buys a home in Santa Barbara, which technically is beachfront but it really isn't. But then gets divorced, or announces the divorce. Ted Danson in 1988 said if we don't clean up the oceans in ten years we're all going to die. Well, it's been 23 and we're all still alive and Ted Danson's even still acting on a TV show called Damages, which is not a bad show. I don't know if they're gonna do season four of Damages, but it was a good show. Glenn Close plays a lawyer. Anyway, look, I totally feel for you, those of us who live in Literalville, we hear all this outrageous stuff, and where is the outrageous reaction to it? (interruption) I have not watched True Blood yet, Snerdley. I just cannot get into it. Look, the DREAM Act -- I just want to say this before True Blood and the vampire stuff -- the DREAM Act, Emerson, is just Reid thanking the Hispanics for stealing the election for him. That's all it is. It isn't going to be passed. It's not gonna get signed into law, pure and simple.
No, I have not watched True Blood. I hear it's a great show for people who like vampires. I just never have been able to get into vampires. You know, I live in Literalville, and there aren't vampires. "Well, do you watch Star Wars?" Yeah, when I was younger I did. I know the Literalville explanation doesn't cut it for a lot of people, but we all have areas of entertainment that just leave us cold. Vampires, I don't know, don't hold it against me, I just never got into it. You know, to me you get close enough to that talking about Democrats. I do that every day. I don't need to go home and watch a television show about 'em. (interruption) Yeah, Boardwalk Empire, Nucky Thompson with Steve Buscemi, yeah, I watch that every Sunday. That's a tremendous show and the season finale is coming up Sunday. Yeah, I do.
