RUSH: Scott in Dallas, I’m glad you waited. You’re up next on the Rush Limbaugh program. Hello.
CALLER: Good afternoon, sir.
CALLER: This morning, Campbell Brown tried to literally take apart Lynn Rothschild, a formerly very high placed Hillary Clinton supporter who has just voiced her support for John McCain.
CALLER: It was interesting to watch that she was — Campbell Brown was furious, she interrupted Rothschild, and I kept wondering, ‘What if this were a former McCain supporter who had all of a sudden turned Obama supporter?’ Campbell Brown would have just fawned over her.
RUSH: Well, you gotta understand what was going on there. And I, as host, understand it flawlessly.
CALLER: That’s why I called you, because I know you understand.
RUSH: Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild is a very prominent, wealthy, cultured, refined woman. Campbell Brown thinks of herself the same way. Liberal elitist babes think that they are in the same social set, the same cultural set as people like Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild.
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: So when Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild splits the scene, it is like she’s being a traitor, and Campbell Brown says, ‘How could you leave us? How could you betray your kind,’ and so forth. When the truth is that Campbell Brown is not in that league and I don’t know that you would really want to be, but —
RUSH: — they do. Now, we don’t have Campbell Brown. I’m glad to get your on-the-spot report on that. We do have two sound bites from the The Situation Room and Wolf Blitzer last night, who spoke with Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, who said, ‘I’m abandoning this party, I don’t like Obama, Obama scares me, I really do not like Obama.’ So Wolf Blitzer says, ‘What they’re saying, the Obama people, you just heard that congresswoman suggest that Lady Baroness de Rothschild, who is that to be talking about elitism, when you are obviously among the elite right now?’
ROTHSCHILD: See, this is so sad when the Democratic Party plays the class card, and they try to divide America and they try to say that somehow my opinion is less worthy than another person’s because I have this wonderful life. I have a wonderful life. I want John McCain and Sarah Palin in the White House so other people can have that wonderful life.
RUSH: Is that not great? This woman’s a Democrat. But she is fed up with what’s happened to the party. How come my opinion is not valid just because my life is wonderful? How come you only accept opinions in the Democrat Party from people you think lives are not wonderful or miserable or what have you? And then Blitzer said, ‘But you’re still a registered Democrat!’
ROTHSCHILD: I’m going to stay a Democrat. You know, Ronald Reagan might have said it right, the Democratic Party left me, I didn’t leave the Democratic Party.
BLITZER: Lynn Forester de Rothschild, thanks for coming in.
ROTHSCHILD: Nice to see you.
BLITZER: You’re going to get a little grief, you know that?
ROTHSCHILD: I know. I’m getting it all the time, particularly from the likes of you, the liberal elite. You’re the elite, not me.
RUSH: Yeah, all right, all right, all right! She called Wolf Blitzer and his guys the liberal elite! See, they think that they are in her league, on the same team, they’re in the same social strata, and he’s giving her a little wink and a nod, ‘You’re going to get a little grief, you know that. How about that?’ Yeah, I know, I’m getting it all the time, particularly from the likes of you, the liberal elite. You’re the elite! Not me.
