GE's PC Olympics


RUSH: Did you see, Saudi Arabia has allowed two women to be on the Olympic team, and one of them, I think, competes in judo.  And the Saudis told the Olympic committee, the IOC, the International Olympic Committee, you must let our female judo competitor wear a hijab, a head scarf.  And the IOC relented.  It is not allowed in judo because it could end up being used as a weapon for choking, for example. But they relented, and they're letting the Saudi babe, err, woman, wear her hijab because it's required that her head be covered in public.  I kid you not.  They did relent.  I don't know when the competition is.  I haven't checked.  I have all that stuff available on my iOS devices.  I haven't looked when judo is.  But it kind of boggles the mind, the fear that exists and the resulting political correctness.

CALLER:  And they should have had a thank you card to the people of the United States.

RUSH:  And you saw an ad where GE is giving used neonatal care devices to the British?


RUSH:  Fascinating.

CALLER:  Yes, it is.

RUSH:  Absolutely fascinating. So they take our hand-me-downs?


RUSH:  And then they throw ceremonies to themselves.

CALLER:  That's correct.

RUSH:  You know, General Electric still owns 49% of NBC.  Comcast owns 51%.  So GE, it's kind of like they're paying themselves.  GE's the leading sponsor of the Olympics, then they paid for the rights.  They paid 49% of $1.2 billion.  I wonder if that means they couldn't sell it to anybody else and they had to go --
