Will Football Game Beat Clinton in Ratings?
RUSH: So tonight is Bill Clinton and Sandra Fluke night.  All kicks off prime time 9 p.m.  But the NFL kicks off at about 8:30 with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.  So the question is:  Will more people watch Bill Clinton or the first football game of the season?  Given the fact that ratings for the first night were down an average of 35 percent from 2008, I'd have to say most people probably are going to be watching the football game tonight.  That would be my wild guess.  And, folks, this is a very unfortunate thing.  Since they've made the decision to move Obama's acceptance oration from outside to inside... by the way, by the way, by the way, the revised National Weather Service wild guess for tomorrow in Charlotte...  They have now reduced the chance of rain tomorrow night to 20 percent.  It was 30 percent when they made the decision to cancel it because of weather. 

As I mentioned in the opening hour, I think it was Alan Colmes, might have been somebody else.  But they said, "Yeah, it's a big problem.  They don't have the hotel rooms in Charlotte to accommodate that many people overnight, which is why they had to bus them in.  And now you've got the weather, don't want to risk lightning and so forth."  They sell out that stadium minimum ten times a year for Panther's football games.  What do you mean they don't have accommodations in Charlotte to fill the stadium? They do it frequently there.  They just don't have the people.  You go back to Denver four years ago, it wouldn't have mattered if it was a blizzard.  They wouldn't have cancelled it and people would have shown up, and you know what Obama would have said? (imitating Obama) "People risked their lives to see me.  People will sit in a snowstorm to see me." 

They would have taken the fact that a big crowd showed up in inclement weather as another indication of how loved Obama was, how mesmerized he had people, all of it.  Now it's an excuse for people not showing up.  The bloom is off the rose.  The elevator's not going to the top floor.  The party is an order of fries short of a Happy Meal.  It just ain't happening.  And now, guess what, I have the sad story right here my formerly nicotined-stained fingers.  The headline's a little misleading.  The headline says:  "Obama Likely to Skip Balloon Drop After Nomination Speech."  What does that mean?  I'm not playing a game.  I want to know what that headline really means to you. Snerdley? "Obama Likely to Skip Balloon Drop After Nomination Speech."

See, I live in Realville.  I read that headline, and, okay, Obama is going to get out of there right after he finishes.  He's not going to wait for the balloon drop. He's just going to leave.  That's not what the story is.  They don't have any balloons.  There isn't going to be a balloon drop because you can't have balloons outdoors.  They had fireworks and stuff planned, which you can't set off inside, not the kind they have.  So there aren't any balloons. 

It's a Fox News story.  They pointed out if you look at the ceiling inside the Time Warner Center, there's no balloons in there.  It's time for Bill O'Reilly's idea.  Condoms.  It's time for O'Reilly's idea to be put into action, a condom drop!  I guarantee you, they've been giving those away at the convention just like they give them away at the Olympics.  I bet they're in every gift pack in every hotel room.  I'll bet condoms are everywhere in that convention.  They've already passed them out.  They've already got them.  They don't have to go out and buy the condoms like the balloons, they've already done that.  Just release them.  Don't even open the packets, just drop the packets.  Don't blow them up.  Just drop the packets.  (singing) "Up, up and away. My beautiful, my beautiful balloon."  Crystal Blue Persuasion, doo doo doo. 

Chance of Rain in Charlotte Thursday Night Down to 20%
RUSH: Folks, this is a very unfortunate thing.  Since they've made the decision to move Obama's acceptance oration from outside to inside... by the way, by the way, by the way, the revised National Weather Service wild guess for tomorrow in Charlotte.  They have now reduced the chance of rain tomorrow night to 20% percent.  It was 30% when they made the decision to cancel it because of weather.  The new forecast is out.  The chance is now 20% tomorrow night in Charlotte.  It was not moved inside because of weather.  There's not a single event that would have taken place in that stadium with the same forecast that would have been cancelled or postponed.  Not a football game, not a baseball game, not a soccer game, nothing.  Whatever was scheduled to happen in that stadium tomorrow night, other than Obama's speech, would have gone on with this forecast.  They moved people inside because they don't have the people to fill up that stadium. It's just that simple.

If Obama is Going to Skip the Balloon Drop, It's Time for O'Reilly's Idea
RUSH: So tonight is Bill Clinton and Sandra Fluke night.  All kicks off prime time 9 p.m.  But the NFL kicks off at about 8:30 with the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys.  So the question is:  Will more people watch Bill Clinton or the first football game of the season?  Given the fact that ratings for the first night were down an average of 35% from 2008, I'd have to say most people probably are going to be watching the football game tonight.  That would be my wild guess.  I'm watching football.  I'm watching football, but I've gotta watch Clinton.  See, if the Republicans were serious, there would be an ad tonight featuring Juanita Broaddrick.  This is War on Women night, right?  I've had Kathleen Willey up there.  I'd get Gennifer Flowers.  I'd get them all.  Yes, I'm going to be back and forth.  I multitask better than most.
