RUSH: It’s Katie in Farmington Hills, Michigan. Hi.
CALLER: Hi, Rush.
CALLER: Mega dittos from the Motor City.
RUSH: Thank you. Hey, Katie, is your mayor still in jail?
CALLER: No, he’s not. They held him back in the court yesterday because they thought he had violated his bond from another case.
RUSH: Right. So the mayor of Detroit is now out and is able to participate in the Obama campaign?
CALLER: Yes. Yes. He hasn’t been saying much. He’s just been making a lot of sad faces and looking skyward, looking for some divine intervention. Very embarrassing, very embarrassing for all of us here, especially all of us conservative Republicans, very embarrassing. My question to you is — well, actually I was calling to tell you you’re a hundred percent correct. A couple of weeks ago you were discussing the Sex and the City voter demographic, and you made a comment about how it seems like women need to be married before they get smart about politics. I’m 26 years old, I’m single, and I’m a hundred percent with you on that because most of my single friends are liberal, and all of my conservative friends are married. And it’s quite frustrating to be someone in that demographic and I cannot stand Obama. And have the media tell you, because you’re a single, white female in your twenties, you should be supporting Obama 100%.
RUSH: Let me retrace our steps on this so that people understand what this actually was.
RUSH: It was actually a political poll, and I forget who did it, but they did find out that women who were married were generally more informed and more educated and more aware of what was going on. Single women were more Oprahized —
RUSH: — and whether they were single, divorced or what have you. And so the question that had to be asked was, what happens here? Do you, as a woman, get married and a man makes you smarter, is the way I phrased the question. I’m happy to hear that you are agreeing —
RUSH: — with that premise. Now, the fact that you are single and you are still a conservative, are you thinking about getting married so that you don’t lose this position that you have?
CALLER: I don’t think so. My father was always — I had two sisters, didn’t have any boys in the house, and my father always was talking politics, he was very involved, he’s been a lifelong conservative his whole life.
RUSH: I was going to say, you sound well adjusted, you sound like you’ve got everything nailed down and you have confidence and no doubt —
CALLER: And it’s because of a man, it’s because of my father.
CALLER: He taught us to think for ourselves.
RUSH: Okay, so it was a man.
RUSH: So you don’t have to get married, that’s cool.
CALLER: No. No. No.
RUSH: Nothing against marriage, if the right guy comes along, snap it up.
CALLER: Yeah, it’s hard in Michigan. There are a lot of liberal men. It’s very liberal.
RUSH: See, most of the liberal men are out of work, in addition to that, so —
RUSH: — there’s nothing that they can provide for you.
CALLER: Yes. No, no, no, no.
RUSH: Look, hold out, Katie. Hold out.
RUSH: High standards, don’t compromise.
CALLER: I absolutely will not.
RUSH: And there are other states.
CALLER: Oh, yes. Yes. I’ve been looking into actually Texas, Texas looks very appealing to me.
RUSH: Now you’ll run into a little more competition down there.
RUSH: But the fruits of your labors will produce a much greater score. I did not mean that in a figurative sense of course.
RUSH: I’m way long on this break, I gotta go, but it’s great to hear from you. Thanks for calling.
CALLER: Thank you very much.
RUSH: All right.
