RUSH: On Scarborough’s show yesterday. This… This… (sigh) This is Huckabee.

HUCKABEE: I bet you never did this. When I was in college, we used to take a popcorn popper — because that was the only thing they would let us use in the dorms — and we would fry squirrel in popcorn poppers in the dorm room.

SCARBOROUGH: Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!

WOMAN: O-kay.

HUCKABEE: Bet you never did that.

RUSH: Nope. Nope. Nope. How could I kid about it? We don’t yet have ‘white comedian Paul Shanklin’ doing an impersonation of Huckabee. That was Huckabee. Play it again. That was Huckabee on Scarborough yesterday.

HUCKABEE: I bet you never did this. When I was in college, we used to take a popcorn popper — because that was the only thing they would let us use in the dorms — and we would fry squirrel in popcorn poppers in the dorm room.

SCARBOROUGH: Ohhhhhhhhhhhh!

HUCKABEE: Bet you never did that.

RUSH: Okay. Well, I don’t think he’s reaching out to the culinary workers because they’re in Vegas; he’s in South Carolina. But this is the kind of thing the Drive-Bys just salivate about. ‘Please, God, nominate this guy. Please? Pleeeease?’ By the way, Obama, Obama has come out for animal rights. Do you want to hear pure pandering? (interruption) The squirrels are safe because of Obama. Wait until Obama hears that Huckabee fried squirrels in that popcorn popper. ‘Democrat Barack Obama, in Nevada, says he won’t just be president for the American people, but for the animals, too. A woman shouted during his town hall meeting outside Vegas yesterday. He was discussing issues that relate more to humans, like war, health care, and the economy,’ and some liberal babe in the audience said, ”What about animal rights?’ Obama responded that he cares about animal rights very much, quote, ‘not only because I have a nine-year-old and a six-year-old who want a dog.’ He said he sponsored a bill to prevent horse slaughter in the Illinois state senate and has been repeatedly endorsed by the Humane Society. ‘I think how we treat our animals reflects how we treat each other,’ he said, ‘and it’s very important that we have a president who is mindful of the cruelty perpetrated on animals.” (laughter) I’m not kidding. I’m not. I’ll tell you why I’m laughing at this. I could just see these liberals in the audience with their tongues hanging out, soaking all this up. (panting) He’s reintroducing America here, Mr. Snerdley, to what Leahy said, ‘We need to reintroduce America to America,’ and this is it: a president who is mindful of the cruelty perpetrated on animals.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: What did Obama say here? ‘It’s very important that we have a president who is mindful of the cruelty perpetrated on animals.’ I wonder what he thinks of Michael Vick. Get the Vick vote or ignore the Vick vote. If Huckabee’s elected president, do you think we now have an idea what the menu would be at the first state dinner? Fried squirrel. I got a note. My North Carolina mistress is upset with me, can’t tell you why, because I never know why. I just know she’s upset. This is a very snarky e-mail: ‘What’s the difference between frying squirrel in a popcorn popper and killing a mouse in a garbage can while spraying Pam on it like you did?’ Very simple. I didn’t eat the mouse. I’m going to call my buddies, Bobby and Todd Hatoff, up at Allen Brothers, ‘Do you guys have squirrel? You’ve never said anything about it, but it’s obviously a delicacy in certain parts of the country, and maybe you have Kobe squirrel, you know, massage the squirrel to make sure the fat’s marbled throughout.’ We could be on the verge of something huge here.
