RUSH: Phillip in Beaumont, Texas, hello, sir.
CALLER: Pleasure to speak to you, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I was watching Fox News Sunday yesterday, and they were discussing foreign policy, and there was a Rush moment with Juan Williams as he referred to Mrs. Clinton as Mrs. Clinton. I just started to laugh. I was wondering, I don’t know if your staff had a chance to pull that clip, but I thought it was quite funny.
RUSH: Why, what’s so funny about him calling her Mrs. Clinton?
CALLER: Well, you know, he’s a liberal pretty much, and —
RUSH: Well, on some things, but not on others. But a lot of people call her Mrs. Clinton. Do you think that Juan Williams is doing this because I call her Mrs. Clinton?
CALLER: That’s what I think.
RUSH: Is that what you think?
CALLER: Yeah, but I think he mistakenly said it.
RUSH: Very possibly true. I constantly underestimate my own influential powers.
CALLER: I know some other Republican talk show, conservative talk show hosts say that, repeat ‘Mrs. Clinton’ quite a bit, but you’re the first.
RUSH: I’ll tell you why I suggested it, too. I suggested it because it is a reminder that she is married to Bill Clinton, Mrs. Clinton. She’s his wife, wants to be president, if it’s being picked up by people out there and used more frequently, then I will gladly take the credit.
Ralph in Washington, DC. Thank you for calling, sir. Welcome.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Before I get to my point, I just have to compliment you real quick. Rush, you know how you look at a lot of the great football games, knowing, you know, a game, for example, like the one last week, Dallas against the Patriots, and you know how you anticipate a game like that, Rush?
CALLER: Well, think of that in contrast to anticipating the Pittsburgh Steelers hosting the championship game against the Indianapolis Colts in snowy Pittsburgh. Well, I just want to tell you, Rush, as part of my job responsibilities, I listened to six nationally syndicated radio show hosts on a daily basis and, Rush, I gotta tell you, when I hear your bumper come on every day, the Pretender bumper, I feel like I’m at championship Sunday at Three Rivers Stadium getting ready to watch the Pittsburgh Steelers. It never fails; it’s the greatest thing in the world.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that.
CALLER: Yes. And, now, Rush, to my point. I have a nephew who became a Marine because of words you spoke on one segment of one single show. Whatever you said inspired him to talk to a recruiter and join the Marines from that one simple show. So, Rush, I want to thank you for your service to our military, volunteering your efforts free of charge to the American taxpayers is so much appreciated, Rush. You know, you are more helpful to the Armed Services, Rush, in one single segment than Reid, Harkin, and John Kerry are in an entire career.
RUSH: You know, you are absolutely right about that. It’s sad to be able to say that truthfully. Thank you very much.
