RUSH: San Diego. This is Greg. It’s nice to have you, sir.
CALLER: Oh, Rush, what a thrill to talk to you.
RUSH: I appreciate that.
CALLER: I have a theory, and I want to know if I can get your opinion on it. I don’t think Barack Obama really wants to be president. Perhaps he doesn’t think he has got the mental fortitude for it. My evidence is his picking Joe Biden as his running mate, because if you think about it, Joe Biden brought absolutely nothing to the ticket. He’s got 9,000 votes for the presidency one time. He has absolutely nothing to bring to the ticket.
RUSH: I disagree profoundly. Joe Biden brought humor, comedy, gaffes.
RUSH: Statesmanship, the media says.
CALLER: Do you think he brought gravitas?
CALLER: No gravitas?
RUSH: The original plan and the only reason Biden is there is to shore up Obama’s supposed weakness on foreign policy, whatever the hell. I disagree. I think you would have been right if you would have said that a year and a half ago when Obama got into this, he really didn’t expect to win this year.
RUSH: This was just to set the table for later. I think he got pretty surprised along the line when he thought that he could win. Now I think he wants it as badly as anybody has ever wanted it.
CALLER: I want to see if this lady in front of me with her Obama sticker is listening to you. I’m driving down the road. If I tell you the road and her car, let’s see if she’s listening to you and see if she waves to me.
RUSH: How are you going to find out?
CALLER: I’ll just describe her car. I’m driving down Rancho Santa Fe Road and she’s driving this maroon brand-new Chevy. She must be listening to you. She’s driving a brand-new Chevy Malibu.
RUSH: She’s driving a maroon Chevy and has an Obama sticker on the back?
CALLER: Yeah. And she also has some other leftist nutcase that’s running for Congress here. I forget his name, Lieberman or something like that. Let’s see if she waves to me. No, not waving. Sorry. She’s not listening to you. Oh, wait a minute, she is!
RUSH: She’s waving to you now?
CALLER: She is!
CALLER: Oh, my God! That is funny.
RUSH: Are you behind her?
CALLER: Wait. Rush, I kid you not.
RUSH: Are you behind her?
CALLER: She just waved.
RUSH: Wait a second. Are you behind her giving her an enema with your front end or are you beside her?
CALLER: No, I just pulled in front of her and she can now see my bumper sticker that is a round circle with a slash through it that says ‘BO,’ no BO, like Barack Obama and she’s looking at it. She’s waving. Rush, she’s listening to you. That is too funny.
RUSH: So we have an Obama listener driving around in a red Chevy Malibu.
CALLER: She probably bought it because you told her.
RUSH: (laughing) At least it’s not a Prius. At least it’s not some hybrid. So she can’t be that committed to Obama. Let me ask you…
CALLER: She’s certainly committed to her bumper stickers.
RUSH: Is she smiling?
CALLER: I can’t tell. She’s got these giant glasses on. She’s kind of old and has kind of a sourpuss look on her face. She doesn’t look real happy. She just waved twice.
RUSH: Now, wait a second. Did you wave at her first or did you try to get her to wave simply because of what you said here on the radio?
CALLER: No, I tried to get her to wave. She can’t see me. My windows are so tinted, there’s no way she could see me.
RUSH: So no way she could see you.
RUSH: So you don’t know she’s waving at you like with one finger?
CALLER: No, no. I could see her perfectly.
CALLER: She just turned. Yeah, she waved twice.
RUSH: She waved twice. How do you know she looks like a sourpuss?
CALLER: Because I saw her right when she was next to me.
RUSH: All right. Well, this is interesting.
CALLER: They stick out like a sore thumb, okay?
RUSH: Fascinating. Look, I appreciate this, Greg. Thanks much.
RUSH: There’s an example of safe driving on the highways in San Diego. (interruption) These are new ways to pick up women on the road, exactly right. That is an interesting technique that this guy tried, and we have no way of verifying if it really happened. That’s the only problem, ’cause — I’m not calling the guy a liar, but anybody can call here and say anything.
