RUSH: Let’s go to Kathy in Thousand Oaks, California. You’re next on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Oh, my gosh, my hero. Hi. It’s a privilege to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’m so nervous.
RUSH: Well, now, you do sound nervous.
CALLER: Oh, my gosh.
RUSH: We need to do something about that. Are you married, do you have a boyfriend?
CALLER: Oh, I’ve been married for almost 30 years.
RUSH: Do you still love your husband?
CALLER: Yes, I do.
RUSH: Well, that’s unique and great. I want you to pretend that instead of talking to me on the phone, that your husband is rubbing your back with a mink glove.
RUSH: That’s how much you’re going to enjoy this. And you’re going to want to do it over and over and over again once you finish the first time.
RUSH: All right?
CALLER: All right. The point I wanted to make is that Harry Reid is taking the Democrat Party and he’s running it like a theocracy, and he’s actually issuing a fatwa on the Congress floor against you.
CALLER: And I just think it’s disgusting.
RUSH: A fatwa. I hadn’t looked at it that way. It’s clear, is it not, Kathy, that I have become their number-one target? They’re running against me.
CALLER: Yes, they are. That’s how scared they are.
RUSH: I’m not even on the ballot. And, see, you know, it’s interesting. Even though I’m not on the ballot, why do they run against me? Because this program, and you, and the audience, we exist in the arena of ideas.
CALLER: We think. Yeah.
RUSH: They don’t. They don’t want to play in the arena of ideas. They want to shut up opposition.
CALLER: There was another point I wanted to make.
CALLER: I wish you would join the presidential race, not to run for president, but just to debate, because you’re a great debater, and people who have been told and they don’t know who you are, they would be able to actually see and hear you.
RUSH: I know. The problem is I would win the nomination.
CALLER: I know! (laughing)
RUSH: Without having to spend a dime, and then I’d have to run, and then I’d lose the show, and I probably would be elected president and have to take a pay cut.
CALLER: Yeah. (laughing)
RUSH: None of that do I want.
CALLER: (laughing) But you’re great. Oh, my gosh, I love you. You’ve been my teacher, and I am so shy, I can’t believe I even called in. It took me over an hour to get through.
RUSH: Well, you did.
CALLER: I just had to make the point.
RUSH: And you did great.
CALLER: Oh, thanks.
RUSH: You did great. Thanks, Kathy, so much —
CALLER: Thank you.
RUSH: — for the phone call. She was in Thousand Oaks, California. A fatwa. Harry Reid. Here’s the thing about Harry Reid’s fatwas. He bombed. He wanted this to be another condemnation of me in both houses just like Petraeus’s ad was. Didn’t happen. The Democrats have yet to offer the resolution in the House. He only got 41 senators, not even all the Democrats, to sign his letter to the Clear Channel CEO. This is another Harry Reid failure. Now I might not get censured, as Ken Salazar wants. I mean, you gotta be examining the job Harry Reid is not accomplishing.
