RUSH: Here's Steven in Indian Trail, North Carolina. Glad you called. Great to have you on the program.
CALLER: Wow, Rush! It's such an honor to speak to you. Thank you for having me here.
RUSH: My pleasure. Thank you.
CALLER: I know you don't have a lot of time, so here's a quick tidbit about me. I used to be liberal. I still live with my liberal parents. Well, "family," I should say. I go to school. I work. I'm 24 years old. A friend of mine referred me to your program. It will be four years in October. She recommended you because, she said, "If you want to know what's really going on in the political world, you should listen to this guy." I have and wow, Rush. You are right, especially about the liberals.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: And I'm a big sports fan, sir.
RUSH: I appreciate your nice words.
CALLER: No problem, sir. I mean them for all they're worth. I mean them. I mean it. And I love your tea. I love your Raspberry Tea.
CALLER: It's really good.
RUSH: Added bonus! You're a really good guy now.
CALLER: Yeah, and it's funny, Rush. I know I'm kind of diverting from the sports, but when I buy your tea -- I don't buy it much because I don't make a lot of money -- my parents hate the fact that it's under your name. They hate it. They even hate the fact that I became a Rush 24/7 member this May. They hate the fact that I receive the Limbaugh Letter.
RUSH: What is wrong with your parents? Why "hate"?
CALLER: They're liberals, sir. I used to be that way. Thankfully I was converted to the good side (chuckles) five years ago. They just don't like you. They listen to all the left-wing media people. They voted for Obama and they believe everything he says to be the truth.
RUSH: Well, they're your parents, so I won't say anything.
CALLER: It's okay, Rush. I have friends who help me out with that and I've exorcised that. So, anyway, on to the sports. On to the sports. I'm a big football fan. I'm a '49ers fan, a Buffalo Bills fan, and -- since I live in North Carolina -- I'm a Carolina Panthers fan. I hate the fact that now, especially with the bounty -- you mentioned this not too long ago -- everyone's going to go, "Oh, this hit! Was it a fine? Is it a bounty?" I don't know if you know this, but liberals have even invaded NASCAR. NASCAR mandates everything, pretty much, for the cars. They mandate the templates of how the body is shaped. They only allow the teams to adjust certain things, even, because they want everything to be fair for the smaller teams.
RUSH: And safe. Yeah, it's about control. The whole prospect of listening to a football game this year has already got me ticked off. I already know, folks, what I'm going to hear. I already know. First hard hit, I know what I'm going to hear. I just don't want to deal with it. Look, Steven, I appreciate the call -- and congratulations. Thanks very much.
