RUSH: I have to tell you something. I gave away a Select Comfort Bed yesterday. Now, that was a nice gesture. It was a call from a military wife who had been at Camp Lejeune but now she and her husband — he had gotten back from Iraq, I think, six weeks ago, and they live in Louisville. So, I gave her some flowers from ProFlowers, a little Valentine’s Day bouquet, to get her husband off the hook; and a Select Comfort Bed. It was like a nice thing to do, right? So I checked the e-mail when I get home. ‘You’re not fooling me.’ People, not many of them but a couple of people, said, ‘I’ve called you before, and I’ve had a nice story. Why didn’t you give me one?’ or, ‘Could I get one?’ I would love to be able to give everybody one, but this program is not socialism. But, see, everybody wants one. That’s the thing. Once you give one away, everybody wants one. Select Comfort, the Sleep Number Bed. This is the bed that you can get a king-size, queen-size. Each side of it, you can set your own firmness. You can lay down on that bed, take the clicker, start flicking it; make it more firm, make it softer — and wherever you end up liking it, that’s your sleep number. It’s a great bed. It really is.
Check it out: 1-800-GET-A-BED. Who knows? I’m going to be giving other beds away. This is an ongoing thing I do. Yeah, she was saving up her pennies. We lucked out. She was saving up her pennies. I had no clue. I just threw it out there. I wasn’t feeling magnanimous, but at least check it out. You get a free DVD or video to look at what all this thing does. There are 465 stores around the country. Just call 1-800-GET-A-BED, and then we’ll talk about giving more away as the program unfolds on future days.
Peter in Jacksonville, Florida. Thanks for the call, sir. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Republican conservative dittos from the first coast, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you. Gratsate. (ph)
CALLER: And I want a Sleep Number Bed, but I want to earn it. Before —
RUSH: There’s a way you can do that.
RUSH: I’ll tell you what: If you make your point in 25 seconds, the bed is yours.
CALLER: Oh, jeez. I want to vote for… I’m not going to vote for John McCain. McCain wants to convince me that he’s a conservative? Why does he need convince me? His record should speak to that fact. McCain’s ego, this is another reason why I’m not going to vote for McCain. His ego, when he looks at my vote and the vote of my family who are going to vote also, they’re going to think that we’re liberal Republicans and we want to move the Republican Party to the left.
RUSH: You did it.
CALLER: I’m not helping McCain or anybody hijack the Republican Party.
RUSH: Shh, shh, shh! You did it. You got a bed. Hang on. Don’t go away.
