Pelosi: Holder Contempt Vote is Part of Republican Voter Suppression Scheme

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: We now have the official... it took a while, about 24 hours, the official Democrat Party response to the contempt citation voted by the committee yesterday against Eric Holder.  It comes from Nancy Pelosi.  This morning in Washington, this is what the former Speaker said this is all about.

PELOSI:  It's really important to note how this is connected with some of their other decisions.  It is no accident, it is no coincidence, that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country.

RUSH:  There you have it.

PELOSI:  That issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people --

RUSH:  There you have it.

PELOSI:  -- are upheld.

RUSH:  That's right.

PELOSI:  These very same people [who] are holding him in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.

RUSH:  We need a new planet. We need a new planet called Stupider, and I need to put Nancy Pelosi on it as the mayor of the whole planet, as the governor, as the evil emperor, whatever.  I knew yesterday that it would take a while for these people to come up with an explanation, "Well, it's common. Well, every president does it. Well, this is just a witch hunt."  But I never dreamed, because I can't think this stupidly, I never dreamed that the official Democrat Party response would be that the Republicans intend to cheat in the election and Holder was gonna stop 'em, and so Holder has to be stopped because he was gonna stop the cheating.  That's what the mayor of the new planet Stupider, Nancy Pelosi, said this morning in Washington, DC.  The very same people holding Holder in contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.  (laughing)

RUSH: Just to repeat, let's go back. Grab sound bite 21. Here we have the official Democrat Party explanation for the attorney general, Eric Holder, being found in contempt of Congress.

Well, of the committee, not the whole House yesterday.

PELOSI: (haltingly) It's really important to note how this is connected with some of their other decisions. It is no accident, it is no coincidence that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, that issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people are upheld. These very same people [who] are holding him in the contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.

RUSH: There you have it. That's what it's all about, folks. (laughing) Planet of Stupider. This is the same Nancy Pelosi who says she could have arrested Karl Rove any time she wanted, but she didn't because she was responsible.

RUSH: Walter in La Marque, Texas? Is that right? Great to have you on the program. Hi.

CALLER: Hey, guy. How are you?

RUSH: Very good. Thank you.

CALLER: Go back to the beginning of the program today when Pelosi got up and made her asinine speech. How can she have the unmitigated gall to stand up and say that Holder is protecting the America's right to vote when he let a Black Panther -- without prosecution -- stand up in front of a polling place with a club in his hand and threaten people?

RUSH: I am glad that you called here, Walter, because I want to go back to that. Grab audio sound bite 21. If you were not here at the beginning of the program, I want you to hear what Pelosi said. This was this morning. She had a little press briefing on Capitol Hill. This is what Nancy Pelosi said. We need to rename a planet Stupider and send her to it as the governor of this planet. Get her outta here. This is what she said is the reason why we are pursuing Eric Holder.

PELOSI: (haltingly) It's really important to note how this is connected with some of their other decisions. It is no accident, it is no coincidence that the attorney general of the United States is the person responsible for making sure that voter suppression does not happen in our country, that issues that relate to the civil liberties of the American people are upheld. These very same people [who] are holding him in the contempt are part of a nationwide scheme to suppress the vote.

RUSH: That's right! Eric Holder is gonna make sure that people aren't cheated out of their vote. And that's why we have found him in contempt because we don't want him to be able to stop the cheating. And Walter's point is great. This is the guy that refused to prosecute voter fraud in Philadelphia. The New Black Panthers were attempting to intimidate voters into not voting. Walter, that's a great catch. I'm glad you called.

CALLER: I appreciate it. You have a great, great day. I hope you get a better night's sleep tonight.

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: Ha! Ha!

RUSH: (laughing) It wasn't a bad night's sleep. It was just very short.

CALLER: Oh, okay. Okay.

RUSH: Very short. I don't have any problem sleeping. I have a problem waking up sometimes, but I don't have any problem sleeping. No, I had an overnight trip. I got back and got in bed about 4:30. And I don't just go to bed. I've got the cat that demands attention. I have dogs that demand attention. I had to let the dogs out; then the cat comes in wants some attention. So it was probably five o'clock. And then the cat starts head-butting me about 7:30 wanting to be fed. Sometimes, you know, I think I've just lost control of (chuckling) the animals. But I love 'em.
