RUSH: Colorado Springs, Jennifer. You’re next on the EIB Network. Great to have you here.

CALLER: Well, Rush, you might change your mind about that. I’m kind of angry. All these accolades that you’re receiving are literally making me sick. And, in fact, my doctor, believe it or not, actually may be tongue-in-cheek, but wrote me a prescription for lowering my blood pressure. And that is, is that I listen at your program as infrequently as possible because in reality you are the one who believes that you are The Messiah, not Obama, and what’s more, you’re very sexist, you’re very sexist. You think that the Democrats are sexist and racist. You are absolutely the epitome of sexism. You want to know why I think that?

RUSH: Not really, because you’re wrong. I don’t like to hear people tell me why they believe something when they’re dead wrong. If you’re really suffering high blood pressure, why are you even listening?

CALLER: Well, maybe I’m a masochist and I can’t help myself, I don’t know.

RUSH: I don’t think that’s what it is. I think you’re constantly enraged and angry, and you need reasons to stay that way, and —

CALLER: I’ll tell you why —

RUSH: — I fill the bill.

CALLER: — I’m constantly enraged, because every day it seems that you find a way by innuendo or any other means to put women down.

RUSH: It’s not by innuendo, I do it directly. I put down liberals. If they happen to be women, I put ’em down. There’s no innuendo about it.

CALLER: Can I give you an example of your direct comments?

RUSH: I’d love to hear.

CALLER: Do you recall your comment, I think it was about three months ago, you were talking about Hillary when she was running against Obama. You said that women are trying to move into a man’s world. If you had said that about Obama or a black person, you’d be off the air now, you’d absolutely be off the air —

RUSH: Wait a second, why would I be off the air if I’d accused Obama of moving into a man’s world?

CALLER: No, listen, if it were the same thing, if you accused Obama of moving into a white man’s world, you would be off the air.

RUSH: Oh, oh. That would never even occur to me. There are black politicians all over the country, as there are female politicians, but the presidency up ’til now has been a man’s world.

CALLER: Okay, you’re not doing anything to change that.

RUSH: What’s the big deal? Hillary puts her pants on one leg at a time like all the other guys do.

CALLER: Uh-huh.

RUSH: Why are you bothered by this?

CALLER: See, ‘like all the other guys do’?

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: This is something I’ve been wanting to ask you for a long time.

RUSH: Ask away.

CALLER: Why is it that you always call Hillary Clinton Mrs. Clinton, and you never give her the respect of calling her Senator Clinton? Are you trying to demean her?

RUSH: I do call her Senator Clinton sometimes.

CALLER: I listen to you practically every day, which is why I have high blood pressure, and I have never heard you —

RUSH: You know, you need to go take a test. There’s something not right here about you, Jennifer.

CALLER: Well, what’s not right about you is I think you’re insecure —

RUSH: No, no, no — Jennifer, I’m trying — Jennifer, please, I’m trying to help you —

CALLER: How many women have rejected you, Rush?

RUSH: Women love me, Jennifer, you had better get used to this.

CALLER: — and this is your way of leveling the playing field.

RUSH: I don’t believe a playing field can be leveled, Jennifer, see, I am based in reality. But Jennifer, my concern for you is that you may die listening to this program from high blood pressure, and you can turn it off. You may be committing a slow form of suicide here on purpose. That’s not right.

CALLER: Hm-hm. I know it. I know it. I don’t always listen to my doctor, either, so, you know, I don’t listen to you —

RUSH: You’re a woman. You don’t listen to men, period.

CALLER: Uh-huh. Well, men don’t listen to women, so there’s equality right there.

RUSH: I’ve listened to everything that you’ve said.

CALLER: Uh-huh. And you’ve had sexist reaction to it, too. I enjoy it. This is my first opportunity to talk to you. I’m really happy I got through. I really am.

RUSH: Well, I’m glad you did, too. But I’m worried.

CALLER: Could I say one more thing? I’m in the Colorado Springs area, but I listen to KOA radio in Denver, and you are a topic of conversation almost daily and women are calling in and talking about your sexism and the phenomenon of your Dittohead women calling in and treating you as if they love you, following your sexist remarks. It doesn’t make sense.

RUSH: I’ll tell you, the real sexism in this country was on display in the Democrat primaries, and it was aimed at Mrs. Clinton by Democrats. The real racism in this country was on display in the Democrat primaries aimed from the Clintons to Obama. I helped Hillary Clinton. Operation Chaos. I kept her in the race. If you listen to this program as often as you say, you would know that I did everything I could to help her, and did. Operation Chaos was so important it’s now the subject of academic study. Jennifer, I appreciate the phone call. I’m glad you waited and you got through, too. But I am worried. You’re the first caller ever who has admitted you’re a masochist. This is unhealthy. I think you need to lighten up a little bit. What you think is sexism is simply me poking fun at liberals, which of course that has been taboo for a long time. But I must go because it’s time for a windfall profit time-out. Be back right after this. Stay with us.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Jennifer, if you are still out there in Colorado Springs listening on KOA, you might be interested in this story today. It looks like it’s from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. ‘Hillary Clinton’s newest tactic to pay off her remaining campaign debt involves ‘dinner under the stars.’ Clinton’s campaign launched a contest — contributors are automatically entered — and the grand prize is a dinner for you and a guest with Clinton herself. ‘This is my first chance to sit down and spend some real one-on-one time with you. If you enter today, we could be having dinner together soon!” she said in an e-mail. There is a second prize, and that is you get to have two dates with Hillary. Just kidding.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Tom in Knoxville, we got about a minute here, and I wanted to get you on, and I thank you for waiting.

CALLER: Hey, Rush, dittos from east Tennessee. Let me be the voice of reason here in the listening audience. I think it was Jennifer a few calls back accusing you of being sexist. You know, either she doesn’t listen often or really doesn’t have the discernment to pick up. I obviously don’t know you, but I think a lot of what you do is tongue-in-cheek, and so I just wanted to echo that.

RUSH: Well, I appreciate it. Jennifer. He’s referring to a woman, ladies and gentlemen, a sad case. It was a very troubling call for me. A woman admitted that she had to take high blood pressure medicine prescribed by her doctor because she listened to this program, and she couldn’t stop listening because she hated it so much. She needed the agitation, the irritation. That led her to needing blood pressure medicine. It’s a slow form of suicide that she was committing, and it was clear — she was in Colorado Springs, it was clear — that Jennifer had no sense of humor, and certainly no appreciation for satire, particularly when the satire and the humor is directed at liberals. She accused me of being sexist and that it just infuriated her. So this is what Tom is calling about, to point out that she was just wound really, really tight. She didn’t have any sense of humor. But it was more troubling than that for me. It’s the first time I’ve had a caller who has actually said my show is killing them, and they kept the radio on.
