RUSH: Rick in Rochester, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Gigadittos to you, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I can’t believe I’m talking to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Listen, I just wanted to share my disappointment over the weekend with Vice President Dick Cheney. Under the premise that it’s easier to get forgiveness than permission, I’m disappointed that Vice President Cheney seemingly missed a golden opportunity, a two-hour window, as president of these United States, to turn Iraq into an ocean of glass.
CALLER: While President Bush was under the knife.
RUSH: (Laughing.) ‘Easier to get forgiveness than permission.’ (Laughing.)
CALLER: I mean, there would have been plausible deniability on President Bush’s standpoint —
CALLER: — and he knew that the operation, the procedure was coming, so he could have planned, pre-positioned the generals.
RUSH: Well, why not? Why are you disappointed about that? Why didn’t you prefer that he take action against Iran?
CALLER: Well, I mean —
CALLER: — that could have been phase two.
CALLER: He could have done the first part in the first hour, made sure that that theater was blown away.
RUSH: Well, look, funny thought, no chance of ever happening. By the way, ladies and gentlemen, the policy had five polyps removed during a colonoscopy recently, and I just wanted to let you know again that Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Carl Levin, and Dick Durbin are doing fine having been removed from the president’s colon.
