On the Rushwire: You Knew This Last November: Obama Loses White Working-Class Voters ... EPA's Al Armendariz Resigns Over "Crucify" Comment ... California Man Sues BMW for 20-Month Erection ...
Two education items today, both from the Left Coast.
RUSH: They had the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday night. There's a new name for this thing called the "Nerd Prom"... and that's quite apt...I haven't seen this kind of groupie-ism in years....Obama told dog-eating jokes.
RUSH: This is a teachable moment. It is a teachable moment about media. It's a teachable moment about taxes. And it's a teachable moment about young people who make up many of the bloggers on a lot of the tech sites that write about Apple.
RUSH: I love Tim McCarver, and he's one of the best at what he does. But this is how insidious this propaganda is. But the fact of the matter is, in the past few years, home run totals have been in a fairly steady decline. From 2000 to 2009, home run totals are down! There aren't more baseballs flying out of the park in the last 10 years or 11 years, for whatever reason.
RUSH: I wish I could cite my source for you. I can't. I'm sworn to secrecy. But I'm just gonna tell you: They had to go call the president off the golf course and get him into that Situation Room an hour and a half before the attack so he was there for the photo-op.
RUSH: I think we need a thousand more Samsons -- professors like you out there -- teaching with your philosophies. I just don't think they exist in as great a number as you do.
CALLER: I'm talking about Philadelphia, here! We didn't have a winter here!
RUSH: Well, okay. Then there's global warming in Philadelphia and you better move.
RODRIGUEZ: Can I say something about Khalid Sheikh Mohammed? He's the one that was responsible for the death of Danny Pearl, the Wall Street Journal reporter. He slit his throat in front of the camera. I don't know what type of man it takes to cut the throat of someone in front of you like that, but I can tell you that this is an individual who probably didn't give a rat's ass about having water poured on his face.
RUSH: I saw it. I had mixed emotions about it, but, ultimately, I would recommend it.
