RUSH: Dan in Jacksonville, Arkansas, nice to have you on the program.
CALLER: Mega dittos from the great state of Arkansas and Jacksonville, home of the Little Rock Air Force Base.
RUSH: Great to have you on the program.
CALLER: I just wanted to bring up something. I’m a truck driver, so forgive the background noise here. I was in Jackson, Tennessee, a while ago and The View came on the TV while I was at lunch, and Whoopi Goldberg —
RUSH: Wait just a second.
CALLER: — was on there.
RUSH: Wait just a second here, Dan.
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: You’re a truck driver, salt of the earth.
CALLER: Well, thank you, sir.
RUSH: Flannel shirt rolled up. I mean, you’re steaming on down the highway in your multi-18-wheeler. Where were you watching The View?
CALLER: Well, at the truck stop they have these TVs on that have the Weather Channel and things like that, and somebody had The View on for some reason.
RUSH: My God. Every standard that we’ve come to know in this country is under attack. The View on in a truck stop?
CALLER: Yeah. (laughing) But she had made a statement, they opened up starting, you know, with the fires in California, and so on. And Ms. Goldberg decided that that would be her chance to belittle Mr. Bush, by saying that why would he even worry about going to California, checking on them, look what he did at Katrina, which is absolutely nothing. She said the only reason he showed up in New Orleans to check out what was going on down there was because he was shamed because he did absolutely nothing to help the people there. And the only thing I could think of after she said that was, well, they got rid of Rosie O’Donnell and hired her, so they just got rid of an idiot to hire a moron. That’s the only thing I could think of.
RUSH: These people, moron, idiot, we spend too much time to politically analyze these people. They’re just dumb. They’re just closed-minded, stupid, uninformed people who have no desire to get things right. And they are immersed in rage. They’re immersed in hatred. Thanks for the call, Dan. Next time do me a favor. You walk into a truck stop and they’ve got The View on or Oprah on, get up and turn it off. You know, turn on something else. Even if it’s Seinfeld reruns, turn ’em off. Don’t let them take over our truck stops, too. (interruption) Well, maybe so, some guy driving a Volvo in there, but that’s another thing, if you see a Volvo in a truck stop parking lot, go to the next truck stop. I’ll tell you, folks, they’re out there trying to infiltrate every tradition and institution that’s made this country great. Truck stops are certainly a great institution. The View! Truck stop.
