RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, from yesterday, we shall never forget.

BIDEN: Uh, uh, Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up, Chuck. Let ’em see you. (rimshot) Oh, God love you. What am I talking about? (rimshot) I tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up, though, pal. (rimshot) I tell you what, stand up for Chuck. (rimshot)

RUSH: Stand up for Chuck! Hey, Chuck, stand up, old buddy. (laughing) oh, God, oh, love you, what am I talking about? And then it’s followed up, in Nashua, New Hampshire, Joe Biden.

BIDEN: Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend. (rimshot) She is qualified to be president of the United States of America. (rimshot) She’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) And, quite frankly, um, it might have been a better pick than me. (rimshot) But she’s first rate.

RUSH: (laughing) I can’t stand this! I just can’t it! (laughter) Can you imagine Obama when he hears about this? He’s getting ready to go on the Letterman show, he hears about this. (laughing) Again, ladies and gentlemen, we play it again. I thought we were going to play it again, number four, can we have it again?

BIDEN: Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend. (rimshot) She is qualified to be president of the United States of America. (rimshot) She’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) And, quite frankly, um, it might have been a better pick than me. (rimshot) But she’s first rate.

RUSH: Chuck Graham, stand up! Chuck, let ’em see you! (laughing) Oh, God, oh, my God. Yeah, what am I talking about? Can everybody stand up for Chuck, and then our buddies at the Power Line blog have this little paragraph: ‘Perhaps these findings explain Joe Biden’s uncharacteristic commitment to the use of force yesterday. At the same appearance at which Biden paid tribute to Senator Clinton’s possibly superior qualifications to be vice president, Biden discussed Republican attack ads. Referring to the Swift Boat Veterans for Truth campaign against John Kerry in 2004, Biden said he’s not going to let that happen again. Quote, ‘Swiftboating is not gonna work this time and the reason it is not, number one, I’m going to smack ’em right square in the chops.” (laughing)

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Remember, ladies and gentlemen, it was I, your beloved and trusted host, El Rushbo, who, when I heard that Biden was on the short list of Obama, I said, ‘Please, let it be Biden, please, let it be Biden.’ And, of course, the Drive-Bys, ‘Why does Limbaugh want Biden?’ made a big deal out of it. Here on CNN’s Election Center, August 21st, the fill-in host John King spoke to Democrat strategist Bob Shrum, and they had this exchange.

KING: Rush Limbaugh today said this on the radio. He said, ‘I really hope it’s Biden. I don’t want to say that too loud, but I really do hope that it’s Joe Biden because we’ve got a mountain of archival audio on Joe Biden plus the arrogance factor times two. Biden and The Messiah would just be delicious.’ Bob Shrum, just a rant from Rush Limbaugh or does he have a point?

SHRUM: It’s a rant from Rush Limbaugh. I think Joe Biden would be a terrific choice. His depth of knowledge on foreign policy, his capacity to go out there and campaign, to really go after the Republicans.

RUSH: All right, now, ladies and gentlemen, here is why I wanted so badly Obama to pick Joe Biden.

BIDEN: Uh, uh, Chuck Graham, state senator, is here. Stand up, Chuck. Let ’em see you. (rimshot) Oh, God love you. What am I talking about? (rimshot) I tell you what, you’re making everybody else stand up, though, pal. (rimshot) I tell you what, stand up for Chuck. (rimshot)

RUSH: And here’s another reason why I wanted Joe Biden.

BIDEN: Hillary Clinton is as qualified or more qualified than I am to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) Let’s get that straight. She’s a truly close personal friend. (rimshot) She is qualified to be president of the United States of America. (rimshot) She’s easily qualified to be vice president of the United States of America. (rimshot) And, quite frankly, um, it might have been a better pick than me. (rimshot) But she’s first rate.

RUSH: That’s why I was hoping for Joe Biden.
