RUSH: You, ladies and gentlemen, have got to hear the audio coming next of the newest ad from Senator McCain’s campaign, but you really have to see this, too. It’s linked at the DrudgeReport.com. You’ve got to see it, but here is the audio. It is entitled The One.
ANNOUNCER: It should be known that in 2008 the world will be blessed. They will call him: The One.
OBAMA: A nation healed! A world repaired! We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
ANNOUNCER: And he has anointed himself ready to carry the burden of The One. To quote Barack, ‘I have become a symbol of America returning to our best traditions.’ He can do no wrong.
FEMALE: Do you have any doubts?
ANNOUNCER: Can you see the light?
OBAMA: A light will shine down from somewhere. It will light upon you. You will experience an epiphany, and you will say to yourself, ‘I have to vote for Barack.’
ANNOUNCER: And the world shall receive his blessings.
OBAMA: This is the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal!
HESTON: He has shown his mighty hand!
ANNOUNCER: Barack Obama may be The One, but is he ready to lead?
RUSH: That ad is… I didn’t hear. I guess it’s a McCain ad, I didn’t watch it long enough to see if there’s an ‘approved by John McCain’ on it, but at the very end of that ad is Charlton Heston as Moses parting the Red Sea, and out of the floor of the Red Sea comes the Obama presidential seal that he had designed and used until he was humiliated into withdrawing it and taking it down. I’ll tell you, if the Obama people got mad and fed up over the Britney Spears celebutard ad, this is going to frost ’em. This is fabulous. This is Barack Obama’s words right back at him. This is what Obama has said. And it’s fun! It’s having fun, yes, but it’s his own words thrown right back at him.
Go back to the phones. It is Open Line Friday. We go to Wenatchee, Washington. This is Blaze. Thanks for holding. Nice to have you here.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. I just want to say congratulations on 20 years, right off the bat.
RUSH: Thank you, sir. Appreciate it.
CALLER: And I just wanted to mention that yesterday I was flipping through the channels and happened to see Ben Stein on CNN talking about how it really is the race card that people are voting for Barack Obama. And I just wanted to say that I knew you said it first, and when he said that it was finally the clincher right there.
RUSH: Well, what he said is that race is one of the reasons people are voting for Obama?
CALLER: Yeah. He basically said, ‘You know, Americans feel guilty for the things they’ve done in the past.’ I forgot exactly what show it was on CNN, but he said, ‘Oh, that’s insulting,’ and Ben Stein said, ‘Yeah, but it’s the truth, and we shouldn’t feel guilty for it because we didn’t do that, but we do feel guilty for it, and that’s why we’re voting for Barack Obama.’
RUSH: Not only that. Not only should we not feel guilty, we ought to feel sort of proud. Look at the steps that we’ve taken since those days. Look at the progress that’s been made. There’s a racial component to this. There’s no question. He’s playing the racial component for all it’s worth. But they’re going to have to have at least a 15-point lead in the polls for him to win because I think some of this poll support is not genuine. When it comes time to vote, Wilder Effect, Bradley Effect is going to rear its head. Right now the poll says it’s basically tied. He can’t win that.
