Gallup Shows Obama-Romney Tied
RUSH: Well, the Gallup daily presidential tracking poll is out. Now, what do you think it says? Keep in mind, we have a Gallup poll out, swing states, that shows that Democrats voter enthusiasm is way up. Oh, it's so exciting. The Democrats all of a sudden by a 20% margin want to vote more than Republicans do. Yep. And voter enthusiasm, I mean, it's sky-high, wow, it's a rebound. So what do you think the Gallup daily presidential tracking poll today is, hmm? Well, they're tied, 47-47. Romney was down a point in the last poll, and before that, Romney was down five or six, and now they're tied at 47-47. So Democrat voter enthusiasm in the same poll. So I guess the Axelrod threat has worn off.
Now, Axelrod, when Gallup reported bad news for Obama a couple, three weeks ago, Axelrod threatened 'em, had a meeting with 'em, called 'em in or did something. This 47-47 tie in the Gallup daily presidential tracking poll, that's even after the devastating Romney tape. See, Romney went up a point today. It was 47-46, Obama. Now it's 47-47. And Gallup is saying that Obama's approval is down by two. And the Department of Justice has joined a lawsuit against Gallup. They have. Are you not aware of that? You're looking at me like I'm a space cadet. I'm telling you, Gallup has been threatened, part of a DOJ lawsuit, and they're still reporting it's a tie.
Study: Male Private Parts Shrinking
RUSH: I have a story, it's from Philadelphia, CBS News, CBS Eyeball News. "If size matters, male private parts are shrinking, according to a new Italian study on sexuality." The kids are back in school now. It's okay, it's September 20th. It's just adults out there now. "The study’s leaders claim to have bona fide research that says the average size of a penis is roughly 10 percent smaller than it was 50 years ago." And the researchers say air pollution is why. Air pollution, global warming, has been shown to negatively impact penis size, say Italian researchers. I don't buy this. I think it's feminism. If it's tied to the last 50 years, the average size of a member is 10% smaller in 50 years, it has to be the feminazis. I mean, the chickification, everything else. Give 'em time and they'll blame Bush. Give 'em time. But air pollution versus feminazis? Ha.
Buffett's BofA to Lay Off 16,000
RUSH: From the Wall Street Journal, says right here: "Bank of America Ramping Up Job Cuts. Bank of America implementing a plan that will lay off 16,000 workers by the end of the year," 16,000, Bank of America. You know who one of the largest stockholders Bank of America happens to be? That would be none other than -- dadelut dadelut dadelut -- Warren Buffett. Warren Buffett's bank laying off 16,000 people, in the midst of this robust economic recovery for Obama.
The Last Day for My Mophie
RUSH: I don't know what the word is. Melancholy today. It's the last day that I will be able to use my Mophie.
Well, but there aren't gonna be any new ones for a while. I have to use my new iPhone naked for... it could be two months.
No, they don't. Even if there weren't a new adapter, there wouldn't be a new Mophie for a couple of months. It's just the way it is, 'cause it's a different form factor on the phone. So this is the last day of my trusty Mophie, which doubles the battery life of the iPhone. It goes away. It won't fit on the new one. Not only will it not fit, it doesn't have the right connector 'cause they've redone the connector. I got an e-mail from Mophie. I think I'm having a little funeral. I got an e-mail from Mophie saying when we have the new iPhone 5 Mophie we'll send you an e-mail, but they didn't say when they were gonna have it. So I'm going to be joining the rest of the plebes with the phone plugged in all the time, keep it charged. Actually, the battery's better on the new one than the current one, but it's a sentimental attachment I have to the Mophie.
No, I don't. I don't buy cases. I don't do that. I buy Mophie, that's the case with the battery. But, you know, I have Mophies that hadn't been born yet. I still have Mophies in their original packaging that have never been used, and now it's like they're gonna be aborted unless... maybe I will give this phone away. I'll wipe it, and then give the phone away to somebody, and then the Mophie could still be used. Recycling. Yes. Recycling. Oh. Recycling. Anyway, I've been thinking about that, last day for my Mophie. There's a part of me that wasn't gonna be upset if the iPhone 5 was late 'cause I would still be able to use the Mophie. (laughing) Snerdley's shouting, "This phone better be here tomorrow."
ChiCom Economy Slowing Rapidly
RUSH: Okay. One of the stacks I have for tomorrow about the economy is the ChiComs. The ChiCom economy is slowing down rapidly. Admittedly, this is a tease. I don't have time to go into it right now but I've got it for tomorrow. That's not good for us, folks. Other international economies are slowing down as well, and Bernanke's not gonna be able to do anything about those to try to save Obama's skin.
