RUSH: This is Paul in Burlington, Connecticut, as we go back to the phones. Great to have you, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Thanks, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
CALLER: I take exception to the painting of the Democrats advocating defeat. But I think you know that most of the people, not all of them, there’s a —
RUSH: Wait! Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! Don’t tell me what I

It’s just very sad, at the same time.
