RUSH: This is Coalville, Utah, to Steve. Nice to have you on the program, sir.
CALLER: Dittos from a 41-year-old white heterosexual middle class pro-life married police officer who loves hunting and eating meat.
RUSH: A member of the American minority, it’s great to have you here.
CALLER: I’m calling from here on the high prairie. We could use a little of that global warming because I didn’t even put my crops in this year, we had snow until June, and it started snowing again on September 1st. So, I hope it comes. But, Rush, I wanted to thank you for today’s Morning Update because I watched MSNBC last night, more out of morbid curiosity than anything else, and Olbermann, Matthews, that group, just disgusting. I’m driving in to work today and I heard your Morning Update calling out those Drive-By hacks by name, assassin so-and-so, carpet-bomber so and so. Absolutely priceless. I was laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes, and I wanted to thank you for having the guts to do that and calling those jackals out by name.
RUSH: I’ve always believed that’s what you do, name ’em. That’s why I always read the byline on stories, read ’em, tell people who wrote this stuff because they deserve to know so the next time they read something by these people they’ll have a little bit of perspective and context. I appreciate what you said, it’s very nice. I’m glad you enjoyed it.
CALLER: Well, you know I was on the sidelines for this election because I didn’t really have a candidate, but after seeing Sarah and also these hacks in the media, I sent in the largest donation I ever sent to any candidate and I betcha there’s others that are going to do the same.
RUSH: Well, terrific. I’m glad you called. Thanks very much out there, Steve. I have, ladies and gentlemen, the text of today’s Morning Update. You may not have heard it. Let me briefly run through it so that you are informed as to his call. Starts this way: Governor Sarah Palin’s home-run acceptance speech sent chills of fear throughout the Democrat party and the Drive-By Media. Their war room launched a rapid response effort led by a special-forces team from the Associated Press. AP sniper Dina Cappiello reported that the nickname for Sarah Palin among environmentalists-wackos is the ‘killa from Wasilla,’ because she has a philosophy of ‘cut, kill, dig and drill.’ Palin’s chief environmental sin is that she doesn’t buy into the man-made global warming hoax. AP stormtrooper Eric Gorski handled the religious attack, accusing Palin of hiding her true faith. ‘Sarah Palin often identifies herself simply as Christian,’ he wrote, ‘yet John McCain’s running mate has deep roots in Pentecostalism, a spirit-filled Christian tradition that is one of the fastest growing in the world. It’s often derided by outsiders and Bible-believers alike.’
Do you think that AP stormtrooper Eric Gorski, when writing about Maryland representative Bob Wexler — ahem, representing Florida, living in Maryland — would ever write, ‘yet Mr. Wexler has deep roots in Judaism’? Do you think that would ever happen? Of course it won’t happen. Sarah Palin, they can just impugn whatever they want. AP demolition specialist Ted Anthony was assigned the job of carpet bombing the family. He suggested that Palin’s photo-ops with her children, even at the convention, ‘come across as contradictory: Hey, media, leave those kids alone — so we [Republicans] can use them as we see fit’… is supposedly the message the Palins are sending. Veteran AP hit man Ron Fournier was called to defend the Drive-Bys blitzkrieg on Palin. ‘The media views its job as scrutinizing her background, helping voters determine her readiness to serve,’ he writes. No, Ron: It’s clear to all your mission is to destroy her, as it is the mission of AP sniper Dina Cappiello, AP stormtrooper Eric Gorski, and AP demolition specialist Ted Anthony, all from the AP Special Forces team. Your effort is to destroy her, your purpose is to destroy her, and it will not happen this time.
