RUSH: To Jacksonville, Florida. This is Alex. Welcome, sir, nice to have you with us.
CALLER (road noise): Oh, Rush, thanks, man! Mega dittos to you, man. Like I said to your call screener, I’m one of your black Republicans here in Sacramento, Florida.
RUSH: I’m glad to have you out there. You’re on a cell phone. It’s a little bit difficult for me to hear you, but plug away.
CALLER: Yes, I was just calling to back my support behind that Justice commercial, sir. I think I might have to use them one day if I ever run into some problems where people think that they are trying to offend me or anything like that. I may have to sick those boys on ’em.
RUSH: You think the Justice Brothers commercial is an effective commercial, then?
CALLER: Yes, yes! I think there are going to be a lot of people out there that are going to want to use them, Rush.
RUSH: (Laughing.) That’s why you advertise on this program, to get results.
CALLER: That’s right. Like you say, you’re the consensus of America. Many people listen to you, Rush. I started listening to you about two years ago with a challenge from a friend, and I tell you, when I started listening, I started realizing, ‘Man, I’ve been this way for a long time. I’ve just been listening and going by other means and other ways, other people have been somewhat trying to, you know, persuade me, not really getting into the facts.’ But the more I listen to you, Rush, the more I started listening to the facts, and I tell you, man, you’re food for the brain, man. I tell you, your information is great.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. You’re very nice to say that, and I thank you very much, Alex.
CALLER: All right. No problem, Rush.
RUSH: In fact —
CALLER: You be good, and thank you for your noontime information, and as I’m a trucker, I’m going to keep on trucking for you, Rush, and for Republican issues. (honks twice)
RUSH: You’re truckin’? Are you in your truck now?
CALLER: I’m in my truck now, heading back to Jacksonville, just passing through Daytona Beach.
RUSH: All right! All right! 10-4, good buddy.
CALLER: All right, Rush, be safe out there.
RUSH: All right, I’ll tell you what, as a special bonus to Alex in Jacksonville, we’re going to play the Justice Brothers again because he said he might need ’em someday. It’s an effective commercial and we’ll back that up just for Alex, we do dedications here now and then, Alex in the truck on the way to Jacksonville, we’ve got Reverend Sharpton singing
(Playing of Justice Brothers commercial spoof.)
RUSH: Our apologies to Aretha Franklin.
(Playing of Sharpton singing ‘
RUSH: (Laughing.) Have you noticed that he never finishes a song? He starts protesting (laughing) in the middle of the lyric line, and the chorus just keeps singing.
