RUSH: Lakewood, California, and Jeff, with me to the program, sir.
CALLER: Former pointy-headed liberal. Now nothing but dittos remain, thanks to you. You know, thanks to global warming I’m in southern California chilling among millions of dollars of frozen citrus. And seriously, I wanted to know what the true scoop is, what your take is on the potential pardon for the Border Patrol agents.
RUSH: Well, I know that earlier this week it looked impossible, looked dead, looked like it wasn’t going to happen, but now the White House is considering it. It’s a microcosm for the lack of understanding that people have at the highest levels of this country just how irritated people are by the whole concept of illegal immigration. As I understand it, these two border agents shot a drug dealer who was retreating, who was running away, shot him in the buttocks, and were disciplined, 11 and 12 year jail terms that they started serving later this week. People that don’t know the full details of the case said, ?What the hell we doing here? I mean, for crying out loud, the Border Patrol agents charged with keeping the border safe and ensuring the law are going to jail?? and they throw their hands up in frustration.
