RUSH: Richard in Valley Stream, New York, welcome to the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: How are you, Rush?
RUSH: Just fine sir.
CALLER: Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: I’m just wondering. I think it would be very interesting if it finally ends up the way it looks like it might end up to be, a Clinton versus Giuliani election.
CALLER: The Clintons have been so successful in reaching whatever they wished to reach through various means of having the propensity for making things like files and evidence and people like Vince Foster and James McDougal disappear, and yet they seem to be like John Gotti as far as being Teflon. All this stuff just slides off them and nobody is ever able to find out actually what happened, and they just move on. And I think if it’s Rudy Giuliani, I have a funny feeling considering his ability to investigate and research and the resources that he has available for him. He built the New York City police department, which has a better intelligence agency than most countries, that foreign countries, including the FBI and the CIA constantly make use of these resources, these databases and —
RUSH: Let’s just cut to the chase here.
CALLER: Okay. Who better?
RUSH: Richard, what are you saying, that Rudy is going to finally dig up the dirt on these people?
CALLER: I don’t think he’s going to dig up the dirt. I’m sure he’s got a file put away for just the right time that he could kneecap the Clintons with the way the Clintons go around us kneecapping everybody else. I’m thinking that Rudy Giuliani probably knows more about the Clintons than the Clintons know about themselves.
RUSH: Well, if that’s true it’s going to be a very boring campaign, because there won’t be any mud slung by either side.
CALLER: Yeah, well, I just think if anybody’s going to be capable of finally beating them at their own game, it’s going to be Rudy Giuliani.
RUSH: I know. I know that’s what you’re saying. I was just pretending to be a reporter. (laughing)
CALLER: (laughing) This could be very interesting.
RUSH: (laughing) Well, you may be right. I hadn’t thought of that, but I don’t care who the nominee is. It looks like it will be Rudy, but this campaign is going to have surprises that nobody can anticipate. It’s going to be, probably… The predictions are it is going to be dirtier than any campaign previously — and, you know, the conventional wisdom is always wrong. If this guy is right, if Rudy has a file on them and they got a file on Rudy, and they’re both telling each other, ‘You play low, and I’m releasing what I got in here…’ Of course, the Clintons would say, ‘You can’t possibly have any more than what everybody else already knows. So you go ahead and talk about it. We’ve already had that stuff dumped on us, and we have dealt with it, Rudy.’ Ha-ha-ha! (interruption) Yes, of course, I do. Of course, I believe it. Snerdley says, ‘Do you believe we’re talking about presidential candidates ‘kneecapping’ people, and nobody even blinks?’ Snerdley, you’re not that naïve. The kneecapping, of course, is used euphemistically. It is symbolic. (laughter) Thanks for the call out there, Richard.
