RUSH: Ben Affleck showed up on Capitol Hill yesterday, as we told you was gonna happen, to testify on Congo. The Hill, particularly the Democrats, literally went gaga. They went celebrity gaga. It was the most embarrassing thing to see.
You have an actor, an expert on Congo, and the members of the Senate go gaga. It is a shame what's happening right before our very eyes, as the pop culture influences now the elitist political culture. Remember, politics is showbiz for the ugly, and the people in political showbiz really want to be in A-list showbiz. So when an A-list showbizzer shows up, they just went gaga. Ben Affleck. IQ of a pencil.
Well, never mind. That's mean. I take that back. Take that back.
