RUSH: I tell you, the Drudge page today: “Brutal weather intensifies, historic ice storm unfolds in South. Georgia warned catastrophic, at least 12 dead. Hospitalizations from sledding crashes, travel impossible, ice from Texas to North Carolina. Cars abandoned on snow-covered roads. Thousands without power.” No worry, Google's working on that with some solar panels. They're killing birds, but that's okay, they're gonna get you power in the next century sometime.
RUSH: Yesterday at the end of the program -- the last half hour of the program -- I was watching TV. Obama did his White House ceremony raising the minimum wage for federal contractors.

I find it all fascinating, both from a political and a psychological basis.
RUSH: You understand what I'm doing when I do this, don't you?
CALLER: No, because he's not Santa Claus. He's a wrecking ball.
RUSH: He is Santa Claus to his base. That's the point. To practically everybody who votes for him, that's all he is.
