RUSH: This is yesterday in Council Bluffs, Iowa. This is at a campaign stop. This is a portion of a speech Mrs. Clinton gave.
HILLARY: There’s so much we can do if we work together as a world. Now, remember that movie Independence Day where invaders were come from outer space and the whole world was united against the invasion? Well, why can’t we be united on behalf of our planet? And that’s what I want to do, to get more and more people to understand that and be involved to protect our environment.
RUSH: Well, let’s talk about movies. You know, I remember the movie Mars Attacks. Remember the little green guys showed up from Mars wearing little glass helmets and so forth and they started zapping and laughing at everybody and they had this funny little language — ‘Ack! Ack! Ack! Ack!’ — when they talked to each other. Jack Nicholson is the president. The first lady is Glenn Close. Nicholson adopts a Hillary. These guys walk in and they gun down everybody in the Senate with their little Martian weapons, and finally they head over to the White House to take care of Nicholson and Nicholson gives a little speech. Folks, if she can cite a movie, that we all need to work together in the world to save the planet; I can cite one too. So here comes a little Martian leader with his little glass helmet there with the big bug eyes and veins all over his face, and these Martians don’t walk. They just sort of glide in the room, and Nicholson rolls up his sleeves, ‘Come on, you people. What is it with you little people? We could do so much working together. Look at what we both bring to the table! I don’t know what your problems are, but let’s sit down and talk about them. This carnage must stop,’ and, of course, the little Martian leader has his two minions, one on each side, and he looks around at each of them and sort of goes, ‘Ack! Ack!’ and smiles and offers his hand. The little Martian leader offers his hand to Nicholson. Nicholson takes the little Martian leader’s hand and shakes it and then the Martian leaders pops Nicholson with his weapon, kills him, and the little Martian flag pops out of the chest cavity of the dead president of the United States. So if I’d have been in the audience I’d have said, ‘Mrs. Clinton, remember the movie Mars Attacks? Remember, if you just blame your own country for the problems that the world is having, and think all you gotta do is get together and what if the people are like the Martian leader in Mars Attacks, you’re going to end up like the rest of us…’ Citing a movie, Independence Day! Remember, now, the reputation: This is the smartest woman in the world citing movies as foreign policy examples.
RUSH: By the way, I should have told you: On these two sound bites that we had with Mrs. Clinton on the Today show today, you need to see the looks on her faces. NewsBusters.org has it. During the cackle when David Gregory is telling her she’s not answering the question, the look on her face is, ‘I’m going to get you for this.’ It is priceless. By the way, Mrs. Clinton was talking about a movie. For those of you in Iowa, I have to be very honest and up-front here. I have a new policy where the Clintons are concerned based on what happened during the nineties. Constantly ripping them and so forth only drummed up sympathy for them. So I’m changing my tack on this. I’m trying to actually get through to you, especially you Democrats in Iowa. I know you’re out there and I know you’re listening. But, come on. Telling you in a speech about a movie and applying something in a make-believe…? It’s not real. Independence Day was not real. It was Martians attacking. Remember? That’s why I chose Mars Attacks as my movie to explain to Mrs. Clinton. Can we remind you of a couple things, for those of you in Iowa? Because I think your intelligence is being insulted here. The first lady in the movie, Independence Day, gets killed in the attack — and who’s the hero? Who is the hero in the movie Independence Day? A black guy, Will Smith! Bad choice, Mrs. Clinton. The first lady gets zapped. The hero of the movie is a black guy. That’s totally bad form. If you’re going to start talking to Iowans as though they’re idiots, and will accept what happens in a movie about Mars attacking as a prelude for establishing world peace, God save you.
