RUSH: Josette is in Reno. Great to have you first today on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush! Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: Yes, ma’am.
CALLER: Well, I have been a registered Democrat for at least 30 years, and if you had told me I’d be listening —
RUSH: You don’t sound a day over 35 so I don’t know how that could be.
CALLER: (giggles) Well, I am, but if you had told me a year ago, I’d been listening to you, I would have said, ‘No way,’ but I have been listening to you and Sean Hannity, and you guys have made a lot of sense, and I’m glad I have listened. But my point today is they keep saying — I am a Hillary supporter and was a Hillary supporter — but they keep telling us that we’re angry. Well, we’re not angry. We just don’t like Barack Obama.
RUSH: But everything that we’re hearing — we have our spies out there, Josette.
RUSH: We have people that are closer than the Democrats think to what’s going on inside the inner circles of their party, and there are some women who are fit to be tied. They are angry as hell because they think this is the last chance to see a female president in their lifetimes and they’ve lived to see that kind of progress and emancipation. See, what’s happened here is this unexperienced, inexperienced good-looking, well-sounding dweeb has once again come along and made the aging woman stay at the secretary desk —
CALLER: And, Rush?
RUSH: — instead of getting the promotion. And they’re mad about it, and they ought to be mad about it. I’d be mad, too, if I was them.
CALLER: Well, I think you’re right about some people. I’m just not angry. I just see it as I see it.
RUSH: How can you stay a Democrat, then, if you’re not angry?
CALLER: Well, maybe I’m not. Maybe I should switch tickets. I’m thinking about being an independent next year, but I’ve been watching this whole thing through and through and I saw the first interview with Michelle Obama.
RUSH: Wait a second. You don’t have to wait ’til next year. The Democrats will — well, I’ll tell you. Not let you switch from Democrats.
CALLER: I’m voting for John McCain this year, so I guess I have.
RUSH: Okay, okay. All right.
CALLER: All right. But I mean I saw the first interview with Michelle Obama, and she acted like she was inconvenienced to be the first lady instead of having it be an honor. I listened to the Reverend Wright tape, and that literally made the hair stand up on the back of my neck and that was it for me right now right there. So if you really pay attention he’s not ready and he’s not The One, and it doesn’t have anything to do with being angry for me. It just has to do with picking right candidate.
RUSH: You’ve arrived at your decision in a rational way. Again, more evidence that you have left the Democrat Party already, whether you know it or not.
