EIB Used "Undocumented Democrats" Years Before Leno


RUSH: By the way, I'll get into details of this in just a second, but I've had a number of people say, "Hey, Rush, did you hear Leno's joke?  It was a great line, did you hear what Leno said? Since AP is not gonna be calling 'em illegal immigrants anymore, we can call 'em undocumented Democrats."  Yeah, we invented that term back in 2010 here on the EIB Network.  In fact, July 1st was the earliest use that we can document in our archives at RushLimbaugh.com, but I think April 27th it might have been.  But we've been using the term "undocumented Democrat" for who knows how many years now: three years. 

Nothing against Leno.  We love Leno.  But I just wanted, for all of you saying, "Hey, Rush, did you hear what --" Yeah, yeah, yeah.  Not accusing Leno of stealing it from us.  I would never accuse anybody of theft.  That's not the point.  I just wanted to let you know we're on the cutting edge of societal evolution.  We've been calling them "undocumented Democrats" here off and on for three years.


RUSH: This is Jay Leno on The Tonight Show, last night during his monologue...

LENO: In a groundbreaking move, the Associated Press -- the largest news gathering outlet in the world -- will no longer using the term "illegal immigrant." That is out. No longer "illegal immigrant." They will now use the phrase "undocumented Democrat." That is the new term: "Undocumented Democrat."

AUDIENCE: (wild laughter and applause)

RUSH: Hey, lots of laughter out there, and I got a lot of e-mails, "Hey, Rush, you ought to play that clip. Leno had a great joke last night." Let's go back to this program on July 1st, 2010.

RUSH JULY 1, 2010: "Undocumented Democrats," 'cause that's really what they are. They're undocumented Democrats. They're future Democrat voters. That's why the move is being made: the largest voter-registration drive in history.


RUSH: No, we're not accusing Leno of copying anything. I just... I don't know. I got a bunch of e-mails from a bunch of Bible thumpers, and they said, "You know, you really ought to play that Leno bite 'cause it's funny," and I look at it, and I said, "I already used that line! I used it repeatedly. Not just back in 2010, repeatedly." So I just wanted to go back and document that we've been using the term now for coming up on three years.
