RUSH: Cynthia in Redding, California, not threatened by fires. Nice to have you with us, Cynthia.
CALLER: Mega dittos, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’m a first-time caller, and I wanted to mention how much our family appreciates your support of the armed forces.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. Thank you very much.
CALLER: And I also wanted to mention that my husband’s mother actually used to babysit you when you were a crumb cruncher down in Cape Girardeau.
RUSH: Naaah, no, no, no, no. Your husband’s mother used to babysit me?
CALLER: Yes. Her maiden name then was Barbara Wallace.
RUSH: I wonder how old I was when Barbara Wallace was babysitting me.
CALLER: Well, she’s in her early seventies, so your guess is as good as mine.
RUSH: Well, you know, my memory is just unflappable, my memory is impeccable, but I don’t remember. I wouldn’t remember the last name, but Barbara… I must have been really, really, really young.
CALLER: Yes. Her and her sister, the Wallace family.
RUSH: Did her sister babysit, too?
RUSH: What was her name?
CALLER: You know, I don’t know her sister’s name.
RUSH: Hmm. Well, does she ever talk to you about this and how it changed her life?
CALLER: No. I would like to think that maybe she helped change your life since you’re conservative.
RUSH: Good answer! (laughing) Great answer. Well, I’ll tell you what, this is on the day we talk to Lynne Cheney about what it was like to grow up.
CALLER: Yes. She served as a pastor for 40 years. Her and her husband just recently retired.
RUSH: No kidding. Well, this is fascinating. You tell her I said hi.
CALLER: I will do that.
RUSH: Anything else that I should know that you know about me?
CALLER: No. But if I find out any other stories I’ll be sure to e-mail them to you.
RUSH: Please do. (laughter) Get some babysitter stories. I’m sure I was hell on wheels.
CALLER: I will find out for you, Rush.
RUSH: Okay, Cynthia. Thanks so much. I appreciate it.
