RUSH: Cathy in Fremont, California, great to have you with us.
CALLER: Thank you. Everybody has my phone number. That’s a post office number I gave you.
RUSH: Okay, good, a post office number.
CALLER: God bless you, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: You’re welcome. I was calling about these people that were calling in yesterday regarding the pit bull attacks versus the —
RUSH: Yeah, the famous Michael Vick situation, yes.
CALLER: Yes. And it just strikes me that the people who are so fed up over the animal thing, which is, of course, horrible but they’re not that upset about the family murder, are people who tend to worship the creatures over the Creator.
RUSH: Yes, yes, yes. We understand why, especially when you talk about dogs here, man’s best friend.
RUSH: And of course the dog will do anything to protect its homestead and its master, you know, the cat would eat you if it were big enough.
CALLER: But these people will humble themselves before anything with the exception of God.
RUSH: Well, you were calling because I shared with the audience yesterday, there’s a couple of e-mails I got that said, ‘Your callers today are dumber than usual. Perhaps Snerdley is not applying himself in there.’
RUSH: And you had called to raise the overall IQ average.
CALLER: Well, I was kidding of course.
RUSH: Well, no, you obviously sound very intelligent. We intelligent people do not need to be — I mean, we can be humble about it. We don’t have to be braggadocios, but we don’t have to downplay it, either.
CALLER: That’s true.
RUSH: People downplay their achievements too much because they’re afraid to be thought of as braggadocios.
CALLER: Yes, that’s true.
RUSH: Anyway, well, Cathy, are you really at the post office?
CALLER: Yes, I am.
RUSH: Well, good. Are you safe?
CALLER: At the moment.
CALLER: Speaking of that, if I could say hello to one of our guys who works here who is over in Iraq right now.
RUSH: Oh, yeah what’s his name?
CALLER: His name is Carl Anderson.
RUSH: Carl Anderson.
CALLER: I’m sure he’d be listening if they’re allowing him to.
RUSH: I’m sure, too. Thank you, Cathy, very much, I appreciate you letting us call you back. And we will not be selling your phone number to sponsors.
CALLER: All right.
RUSH: All right.
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: I was just kidding. Well, you never know what people hear and believe out there.
