RUSH: Yesterday Fox News Channel Studio B, fill-in host Trace Gallagher speaking with Democrat strategerist Mary Anne Marsh, Townhall.com’s Amanda Carpenter about the upcoming Pennsylvania primary. Trace Gallagher says, ‘The next major battleground, the race for the Democrat nomination, Keystone State, 158 delegates. Mary Anne, you have to imagine a lot of GOPers are going to want to play here.’
MARSH: That’s exactly right, and you’ve seen that more and more since McCain’s got the nomination, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see it in Pennsylvania, too. What we’re now seeing, though, is more Republicans supporting Clinton. Some people think that has more to do with Rush Limbaugh than it might do about how they feel about Hillary Clinton.
RUSH: No kidding. Gallagher then says to Amanda Carpenter, ‘Amanda, can you see any of the candidates say, ‘Look, I really don’t like the idea of the GOP switching sides just for temporary purposes here now?” You know, Trace, I gotta tell you, Obama and Hillary are both urging Republicans to do just that. Well, they’ve stopped it now because the registration ended yesterday in Pennsylvania. Obama was running radio ads, Trace baby, and Amanda Carpenter is clueless.
CARPENTER: Yeah, I think there’s a number of people that aren’t comfortable with, you know, members of one party interfering with another party’s nomination, but it looks like it’s happening. If you look at the numbers from the Pennsylvania State Department, they reported in February that 26,000 people changed their party registration in that month alone. So it could be the margin of error if it’s really close, you know, a month from now.
RUSH: Try 161,000 Republicans registering as Democrats in Pennsylvania, pushing Democrat Party registration over four million for the first time in history, 161,000. (laughing) Early bird special.
Paul in Milford, Connecticut, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush, thank goodness for you and Fox network, we’d never get any true news out of the media.
RUSH: Thank you, sir, I appreciate that.
CALLER: Hey, listen, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I’m afraid that a variation of Operation Chaos has been in effect with the phony liberal Democrats for the last 15 years, and I’ll tell you why. They go into states like New York and California and Massachusetts, they promote all these social programs that raise taxes and then the phony liberals flee out of those states and come into Connecticut or Nevada or Vermont, and that’s why those states are turning so liberal and so Democrat.
RUSH: Well, I don’t know about Vermont. Vermont’s been liberal for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. But I get your point. Like people out on Long Island who cannot afford to live there anymore with just the basic costs of living, the housing costs and property taxes and this tax and that tax, some are moving to North Carolina.
RUSH: Some are moving to Florida. So your point is well taken, that there’s already a Democrat Operation Chaos underway because the Democrats are already moving and infiltrating our states.
CALLER: So maybe your earlier caller was right, maybe we need to get some people to move to California.
RUSH: Yeah, that’s tit-for-tat. Absolutely. Coming up with 250,000 of them would be a challenge. It would be a challenge. But it’s worth looking into, as I told the caller who suggested it.
Dresher, Pennsylvania, this is Gil. Nice to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Rush Limbaugh, it is a pleasure and an honor to speak to the sage of sanity, the (unintelligible) of conservative pontification. I am a foot soldier in Operation Chaos, and I want to let you know, I’ve got a real serious problem going on.
RUSH: What’s that?
CALLER: Well, yesterday, I went and I registered as a Democrat, and I woke up this morning, and I had this incredible urge for deep fried tofu, and it won’t go away. Rush, you gotta help me here.
RUSH: Yeah, well, it’s only going to get worse if you don’t get your arms around it. Deep fried tofu, next you’re going to ask us for a welfare check; then you’re going to want food stamps.
CALLER: Rush, is this contagious?
RUSH: Then you’re going to start hating the military. You gotta get your arms around this real fast.
CALLER: I’m thinking of buying a Prius, Rush.
RUSH: No, no, no. Buy whatever you want. I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. You need help. I want you to hang on after this call. I’m going to send you an Operation Chaos T-shirt and an Operation Chaos cap and a couple of bumper stickers.
CALLER: Oh, Rush, that’s got to be an antidote. If there is one, that’s it, right?
RUSH: Of course it will be an antidote. You put this stuff on the minute you get it. Now, the first shipment is not going to go out ’til April 4th, so you gotta toughen up, you gotta use some discipline. You might even want to go get some counseling. You cannot let this happen to you. I can imagine you have nightmares and so forth after doing this, but remember this. You’re doing this for our side to win. You have not — I imagine many of you are dealing with this challenge — you have not sold out, you are not a traitor. You are not betraying anyone. You are foot soldiers in Operation Chaos. You’re the infantry; you’re the guys on the front lines; you are making it happen. You just bring this to a screeching halt, your hunger pangs for tofu. If it goes any further than that, call me back.
