RUSH: Here is Michael in Alsip, Illinois. Nice to have you on the program.
RUSH: Hey, Michael. How are you?
CALLER: Good. How you doing, Rush?
RUSH: Never better.
CALLER: Excellent. I’ve got a couple observations here, and I want to throw in a (unintelligible) politics dittos to everybody out there. Anyways (sic), my first of two observations is, number one, I didn’t notice Governor Palin wearing lipstick while campaigning with Senator McCain today. I don’t know if that was my bad television or just my bad eyes. Number two, excuse me, I didn’t really take what Senator Obama said yesterday and take it as a ‘lipstick-on-a-pig’ pointed at Palin. Closer to the truth about the gamy governor, it would have been it would have to be the second comment he said, ‘You could wrap a fish in paper and it will still smell.’ That’s my observation.
RUSH: What is your observation?
CALLER: That she is a smelly fish. Uh, everything she says and does, it’s — it’s just… She can’t put two sentences together about what’s going to happen in the future of your Republican Party.
RUSH: You think that about Sarah Palin?
CALLER: Yes, I do.
RUSH: You want to say that again to the whole nation?
CALLER: I just did!
RUSH: I want you to say it again. I can’t believe, of all the things that you might want to say about Sarah Palin, you would come up with that.
CALLER: You don’t think that’s true?
RUSH: There’s no thinking about it, my man. I don’t have to.
RUSH: Sarah Palin can’t put two words together, two thoughts together?
CALLER: I said two sentences together about what’s going to happen with the GOP and why they should elect her and Mc-uh… McCain.
RUSH: What are you so scared about?
CALLER: Oh, I’m not scared, man. I’m enjoying this.
RUSH: What is all this? How come all you touchy-feely sensitive liberals have to come out with all these insults?
CALLER: No, I’m not a liberal. I’m an independent, actually.
RUSH: Well, it’s the same thing. An independent is just somebody doesn’t have the guts to identify themselves as a liberal. And then you call a radio show like mine trying to sound like a very smart guy, and you prove why you’re an independent. You’re brainless. To have those observations about Sarah Palin? Of all the observations, she can’t put two sentences together? This is a woman who has yet to stutter one time, in any public appearance! (exasperated sigh) I’m ending the phone call, ladies and gentlemen. I run the risk of my own IQ lowering every time I talk to people like this.
