RUSH: Is it Kama? Is that how you pronounce it? Kama in Fort Collins, Colorado, the home of Dan’s Bake Sale. It’s nice to have you on the program, Kama.
CALLER: Thank you, Rush. It’s nice to be here. I’m trying to get on any show I can today. I talked to our local affiliate this morning on Fox Radio. I was talking to my friend yesterday. She’s a staunch Obama supporter; I’m staunch conservative, and she told me that her daughter, who her husband is in the military, she said, ‘Yeah, he’s coming home on leave this weekend, and so we told her to get his absentee ballot and vote for Obama because he would probably vote for McCain, being in the military,’ and so they took his ballot and voted for Obama.
RUSH: Wait a minute. Let me make sure I understand this. You have a married couple friend?
RUSH: He’s in the military coming home on leave this weekend?
CALLER: That’s right.
RUSH: Somebody told the wife of the soldier on leave coming home..?
CALLER: Her mother, who is my friend. I’m friends with both the mother and the daughter. The daughter is the (unintelligible) people.
RUSH: Her mother, her mother told the daughter/wife to go get some absentee ballots real quick and vote Obama on both of them: one for the wife; one for the husband, who’s not even home. So his vote is being handled by his wife?
CALLER: It was his absentee ballot that came in their mail.
RUSH: Okay, it was his absentee ballot came in the mail. She opened his absentee ballot and voted Obama for him because she was worried he would vote for McCain?
CALLER: That’s right, because he’s in the military.
RUSH: I knew the Democrats wanted to disenfranchise military people going back to Florida, but I don’t know if I — I haven’t heard about this before, this kind of thing, but I’m sure it’s not unique. What are you going to do about it?
CALLER: You know, that’s what I’m struggling with. I really… We’ve always had differences of opinion politically, but this to me is a judgment deal-breaker. I mean, my children play with her children, and I really had a hard day dealing with this information. I don’t know what to do with it.
RUSH: Do you know him?
CALLER: I know him. I’ve seen him once. I’ve never met him officially.
RUSH: Oh, so you couldn’t call him on the phone and say I want you to know what happened?
CALLER: I could put a message on his MySpace page. I know he has a MySpace page.
RUSH: Uhhh. (sighs)
CALLER: I wonder how many soldiers this might be happening to.
RUSH: Well, that’s a good question. Obviously ACORN and Obama’s get-out-the-vote drive at work here. Let me think about this. Let me… You’ve hit me here between the eyes. I’ve got five seconds left. That’s enough time to say good-bye and thanks for the call. What to do about…? The guy has gotta be told. Somebody has to tell the guy. His vote has been cast for him!
