"'Why aren't you talking about the unemployment benefits and the income inequality, Rush?' You know, I'm trying to turn over a new leaf. I am not gonna get trapped in this soap opera, which is what the news is. That's what they want us all talking about. You can watch the cable news networks to find out what the soap opera is."
"Do you know what the polar vortex is? Have you ever heard of it? Well, they just created it for this week."
"So, ladies and gentlemen, we are having a record-breaking cold snap in many parts of the country. And right on schedule the media have to come up with a way to make it sound like it's completely unprecedented. Because they've got to find a way to attach this to the global warming agenda, and they have. It's called the 'polar vortex.' The dreaded polar vortex."
"In their attempt, the left, the media, everybody, to come up with a way to make this sound like it's something new and completely unprecedented, they've come up with this phrase called 'polar vortex.' It actually sounds like a crappy science fiction movie to me, but that's what they're calling it."
"In their attempt -- the left, the media, everybody -- to come up with a way to make this cold sound like it's something new and completely unprecedented, they've come up with this phrase called the 'polar vortex.' It actually sounds like a crappy science fiction movie to me, but that's what they're calling it."
"A lot of people think that the Kansas City Chiefs-Indianapolis Colts was a great, great game. There was no defense in that game. It wasn't great football. There wasn't any defense! A great football game was the 49ers and Packers. That was a football game. That was a game."
"Liberals believe success means people use more than their share of things like oil and fossil fuels, and they destroy the planet when they do this. You may think this ridiculous, folks."
"A concussion is a medical thing. It is a real thing. It's defined and it's treated in specific ways, and it's now become political, because leftist activists have gotten hold of it."
"If you can rewrite the laws of atmospherics to suit your political agenda, I guess science is neat, or if you can rewrite the terms of your religion to fit your agenda. Gosh, religion would be neat, too."
"President Obama returned to Washington from his 17-day vacation in Hawaii yesterday, great relief for the Drive-By Media, which can now resume their soap opera."
"Snerdley, have you seen this headline in the LA Times today? Tell me if you've seen this. 'Teen Athletes with Concussions Should Not Do Homework, Study Says.' You missed that? That's why I'm here. I dig deep, and I find this rotgut, stupid insanity."
"The Drive-Bys are just ecstatic, so happy to have Obama back home, back in Washington, back from Hawaii. Now they can resume the soap opera -- put him as the lead character of the Washington soap opera back on the air -- and of course income inequality and unemployment benefits extension happen to be the two plot lines of the soap opera today. And they will be for as long as it takes to make people forget the misery of Obamacare and the misery of Obamanomics."
"The environmentalist wackos, I kid you not, are now calculating the number of trees that must be planted in order to compensate for all of the greenhouse gases produced by the rescue vessels."
"I have a quick question. How many trees do you have to plant to offset the stupidity of people planting 5,000 trees to account for the carbon footprint of the rescue effort of the lunatics that went down to study melting ice at the Antarctic?"
"So what's Obamacare gonna be like in three to five years? It's easy. It's gonna be expensive. It's gonna be leveled with bureaucracy. Getting treated is going to be an absolute challenge. There are going to be long lines. The evidence is clear. How is it with the DMV, folks, or any government bureaucracy? Name one that you like working with."
"In three to five years, if nothing changes, the only place you're going to be able to go for health insurance and medical treatment will be the United States government, and specifically the IRS and the Department of Health and Human Services. That's gonna be your option unless you have a lot of money."
