RUSH: Hey, folks, do you want to have a little fun tonight? I mean… Yeah, it might be a little fun. We used to suggest this when I hosted my television show. Whenever Clinton press conference or State of the Union speech or something was coming up, we’d tell people to make little signs that you could tape to the TV screen to remind you what you’re watching so as to keep focused rather than being lulled by what you were hearing. So with Obama speaking tonight, if you want to have some fun, just prepare a sign that fits on your screen that you can read from where you’re watching it.
You put it in the lower fourth of the screen, and it says something along the lines of, just off the top of my head here. ‘I don’t know what I’m talking about. I have no experience.’ Make up one of your own to remind you, and it will change the way you watch the speech. You see how far away from the set the actual podium is going to be. With that set, those columns, Obama is going to appear twice as large as that set tonight by design.
RUSH: This is Eddie in Acworth, Georgia. Hi, Eddie, I’m glad you called.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Atlanta Falcons and Georgia Bulldogs dittos to you. How are you today?
RUSH: Very well, sir. Thanks for the call.
CALLER: Good. I wanted to give you a suggestion basically that you gave to us back in the nineties when Bill Clinton was running around, and it has helped me calm down this week, and I think you need your own advice. Every year when Clinton would give us the State of the Union address you gave us instructions on the State of the Union Viewing Kit. It involved a piece of paper, tape, and we were instructed to tape that to the TV and write on it, ‘He is a liar,’ and that was our viewing kit. You remember that, Rush?
RUSH: Oh, yeah. I mentioned that earlier today, that it would be fun for people to do that on their TV sets tonight. As Obama speaks, the sign you put on your TV is, ‘I don’t know what I’m talking about. I have no experience.’
CALLER: Well, the kit worked beautifully for me, of course, a couple times I’ve written an ‘S’ in front of the ‘H-E’ to cover Hillary, Nancy, and the others out there, but it’s worked beautifully and kept me pretty calm this week. I’ve dusted that thing off.
RUSH: Well, good. We need to update it. It’s not enough to say Obama is a liar. I mean, we’ve been through that before. It’s just: ‘I don’t know what I’m talking about. I have no experience.’ Have that on your TV screen, if you watch this thing tonight so that you’re able to keep it in perspective. I appreciate the offer. People, audience members, they heard my eruption in the first hour. Cookie even says, ‘Rush, I don’t want you to die. I want you to live. Please, don’t watch this tonight. I’ll watch it. I’ll get you all the audio you need.’ What did Kerry say? I don’t want to know. Don’t tell me! Why do we have to revisit John Kerry? Revisiting Clinton and Biden is enough, from the party that’s promising all this great future and rotgut garbage, all they’re doing is giving us the past. (interruption) Well, I’m glad I didn’t see it, because I was reading some conservative bloggers who were praising Kerry’s speech as finally a good one, that he’s much better when he’s not actually running for something.
The conservatives, the posters at National Review Online, on The Corner, were saying Kerry’s speech was one of his best. If it’s as bad as you say, then I’m glad I didn’t see it. I’m glad. I woulda just totally lost it. I woulda lost it worse than I did with Biden… (sigh) Then, there’s a God. I didn’t turn the TV on ’til eight o’clock. I was busy. I was sitting there not eating. I was on my diet working hard. I turned on the TV at eight o’clock or maybe it was close to nine.
RUSH: We have taken the steps here ourselves at RushLimbaugh.com. We have prepared a bumper-sticker-size sign in a PDF format at RushLimbaugh.com. If you’re a member, it will be in your Rush in a Hurry that comes out about an hour and a half before the website’s updated. It will also be on the website, ‘I don’t know what I’m talking about. I have no experience.’ You cut it out, put it up there on your TV screen, or you can download it as a PDF and size it if you want. It’s in four color, and every ‘O’ is Obama’s logo. It looks very good. Koko just put this together.
