RUSH: Everybody is asking me to explain to them why the Anna Nicole Smith story is such a big media story, and about the best we can come up with here is you’ve got a blonde, large-breasted train wreck. You’ve got all the ingredients necessary for a big media story. You’ve got train wreck. You’ve got a blonde. You’ve got big breasts, and plus you’ve got half the male population of California claiming to be the father of her child. I ought to put myself on the list. So many people are claiming paternity here, and their claims are about as absurd as mine would be. The only difference between me and those guys would be I don’t need the money, which is the only reason they’re putting themselves on the list. Zsa Zsa Gabor’s husband, Prince Frederic Von Anhalt or some such thing, claims to be the father! This is a study in pop culture, to figure out why the Anna Nicole Smith story — which is now, what, a week old? — is so big. It’s not going to subside, folks. It’s just going to keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger, and when you realize she never was anything in terms of genuine achievement… She never was anything. She was a Playboy playmate and it was downhill from there. I’m not trying to be mean, but somebody tell me where I’m wrong? She never was anything.
