RUSH: Pittsburgh, Wendy, I’m glad you waited. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It’s nice to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’m sorry to have to say this, but I just cringe when you yuk it up about Bill Clinton at the restaurant and about the crush on Hillary thing. It legitimizes them, and I just think about all the things that they have done over the years to people and the FBI files and Billy Dale and all the sexual harassment, and I just don’t find them funny at all.
RUSH: Oh, they are funny as hell.
CALLER: I don’t see it.
RUSH: They’re dangerous, there’s no question.
CALLER: They’ve ruined people’s lives, and then Bill goes and he used you to talk about cochlear implants and then how compassionate he is, when he doesn’t care. He could give a rat’s patooti about your cochlear implant. I mean, come on.
RUSH: But you’re missing the point of that.
CALLER: I don’t miss the point. I think it legitimizes them. It makes them human and real.
RUSH: Oh, come on. For one thing, how in the world can Bill Clinton telling a gigantic lie like that and my pointing it out, humanize the guy?
CALLER: (chuckles) Because people —
RUSH: He didn’t talk to me about cochlear implants.
CALLER: No, no. Not on your show. He went on somebody else’s show and then he gets to talk about how magnanimous he is about your cochlear implants. You know, it’s like… I think he used you and when you yuk it up about them, it humanizes them, and it kind of, you know, takes the edge off of what they’ve done to people in this country.
RUSH: I think… Look, I understand your sensitivity to this. This is frankly why a lot of people are very concerned about Operation Chaos because they think Operation Chaos is oriented towards helping Mrs. Clinton go all the way, which is not the purpose here. But, look: What happened, happened. The guy was on the radio. I didn’t put him on the radio. These other guys did. I found out about it; I wanted to comment on it. I didn’t say I had a crush on Hillary; she did.
CALLER: Well, you know —
RUSH: If anything, these people are humanizing me to the left! You gotta look at it that way, too. Can you imagine how mad the left is at the Clintons for humanizing me?
CALLER: I don’t know that anything could humanize you to the left, Rush. I’m sorry to say. But you should be glad about that — and I notice that my name wasn’t one of the top ten that you like, but that’s okay.
CALLER: I don’t like my name, either. (giggles)
RUSH: Wendy? Wendy, I need to grab your shoulders and shake you here. You don’t like anything today. You don’t like your name?
CALLER: No, I’m just kidding, Rush. When you talk about Bill Clinton and you yukking it up and him with the date, you know, I go back and I think about, you know, what’s her name Willey and Broaddrick and Paula Jones. It’s not funny; it just isn’t funny to me. They’re not funny people.
RUSH: Can I tell you the thing that most troubles me about telling the story about Clinton hitting on my date?
CALLER: All right, what?
RUSH: Well, if you take a look at the women that Bill Clinton has found attractive over the years —
RUSH: — what opinion must people have of the woman I was with? You know, Clinton’s taste in women is not much above trailer park.
CALLER: (giggling) All right. You’ve got me laughing now.
RUSH: So the thing that worries me more about this story… If James Carville can say it, I can say it. The thing that worries me more about this is what people are going to think of this woman I was with, when they compare the women that Clinton has been interested in over the years. It could be very insulting to her, if you get my point.
CALLER: Well, see, there you go again. We’re yukking it up about this Bill Clinton.
RUSH: Wendy, lighten up!
CALLER: (laughter) I tell you, I just don’t find it funny. I don’t find what they do funny.
RUSH: Wendy? Wendy, it happened. It happened in the restaurant. What am I supposed to do, come here with the dukes up?
RUSH: The thing happened.
CALLER: All right. I accept that. I’m just giving you my opinion.
CALLER: That doesn’t mean I don’t like you. I do.
RUSH: Well, I appreciate that. I really do. You sound a little wifey at times.
RUSH: I appreciate that. I’m glad you called.
CALLER: Okay, bye-bye.
RUSH: Thanks very much.
RUSH: This is Marta in Gadsden, Alabama. Hi and welcome to the EIB Network.
CALLER: Hi, Rush!
RUSH: Hi. How are you?
CALLER: Very well. I’m nervous, so I hope it doesn’t show. (giggles)
RUSH: It doesn’t show.
CALLER: I just wanted to call and say I agree with your earlier caller. I’m sick of hearing about Bill Clinton hitting on your date, because I’m sure that you know very well how to take care of your date. And we know that he hits on anything that’s within viewing range. That’s just Bill Clinton.
CALLER: And just — you know, I am tired of hearing about it. (laughter) Because I don’t see what the point is of over and over and over again. Could you enlighten me on that?
RUSH: ‘Cause I think it’s a funny story and it happened to me and it was the first time I had ever met this guy!
RUSH: And I think it confirmed everything we knew about the guy.
CALLER: Well, that’s true.
RUSH: From the —
CALLER: That’s true.
RUSH: He had a wingman to distract me. Now he’s lying about it. It fits the mold.
CALLER: Well, we know that Bubba does that all the time. You’re right. That’s nothing new, but we’ve heard that a long time ago, and I just —
RUSH: Oh, jeez.
CALLER: — gets kind of old hearing that. I kind of agree with the other lady that it just — in a way it seems like you’re insecure or something. I know that’s not the case —
RUSH: Oh, come on, now! Wait a minute, Marta. There’s something going on out here. I am insecure? What does that mean?
CALLER: Well, I don’t know. That’s what I don’t understand. It comes across that way.
RUSH: Tell me what that means, that I am insecure.
CALLER: Well, you keep saying, ‘He’s hitting on my date, hitting on my date.’
RUSH: Oh, come on! That’s not insecure. I’ll tell you, it’s a funny story, for crying out loud. It’s going to be — if I ever write another book, it’s going to be big in there.
CALLER: (giggles) Okay, Rush. (giggles)
RUSH: You know what the real story is? You know what you don’t like?
CALLER: No, what do I not like? You’re the one that’s insecure. I don’t like you don’t like hearing me, El Rushbo, use the term ‘my date.’
RUSH: That’s what —
CALLER: Maybe that’s it! Maybe you’re right.
CALLER: Maybe I’m jealous.
RUSH: Maybe you’re a little jealous here.
CALLER: (laughter) No, I know that you’re perfectly capable of taking care of your date. That’s not it. It’s just I hate to hear Bubba’s name even mentioned.
CALLER: I’m sure he was jealous!
RUSH: Let me tell you what’s out of proportion about this.
RUSH: From my standpoint.
RUSH: Only today — and you are the second. The first was Wendy in Pittsburgh.
RUSH: Here you come from Gadsden, Alabama, and both of you are very intelligent women, and you thought — I don’t know if she said she was nervous, but you did, and you’re not nervous at all because you are fired up. You’re wired.
RUSH: Now, throughout Operation Chaos since we started this in March, I have been advocating people to vote for Hillary Clinton.
RUSH: And I haven’t gotten anywhere near the complaints about that that I have received from you two today, talking about this dinner I had where Clinton hit on my date. And all of a sudden now I mention the Clintons here in the context of this dinner story, and all hell breaks loose! Yet I can mention Hillary Clinton. ‘Vote for Hillary Clinton!’ for three months here, and you don’t call me and say, ‘I’m sick and tired of hearing about the Clintons. Would you shut up? I don’t like hearing about it.’ So there’s gotta be a boy-girl thing going on here somewhere.
CALLER: Well, I think the… Operation Chaos, I think it’s brilliant.
RUSH: Well —
CALLER: I think it’s wonderful what you’ve done with Hillary — and I’ll tell you another thing. I think Hillary is the one with the crush on you.
RUSH: Well, I didn’t want to be that presumptive. I hope it’s… I’m afraid you’re right.
CALLER: (laughing) I do believe that. I do believe that could definitely happen. I mean, she’s probably so deprived of male companionship, really from anybody. What is it you call it, her lockbox? (laughing)
RUSH: Testicle lockbox.
CALLER: I guess you know that kind of nerve-wracking and we know she never gets any attention from Bubba. So she’s probably starved!
RUSH: Marta? Marta? Marta? I gotta hang up. I’m sick and tired of you talking about Hillary.
CALLER: (laughing) Okay. (laughing)
RUSH: (false rage) I don’t want to hear it. I hate these people!
CALLER: (laughing) Okay.
RUSH: These people are polluting our country, and I don’t want to hear about the Clintons anymore.
CALLER: Touche. (laughing) Touche.
CALLER: Okay, thank you, Rush. Love you. Bye-bye.
