RUSH: This is Angelique in Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: (giggles) Well, merry Christmas —
RUSH: Same to you.
CALLER: — Generation Dittohead. My father would say, if he knew I was talking to you on a telephone, that I better make this good. I’m in agreeance with you on Blago’s situation, but I do have to say that quite doubtful I don’t buy it when Obama says he has absolutely nothing to do with it. I think we’re playing elementary school games here, kind of like, ‘Bobo told Barry, you know, ‘If I give you my Fruit Roll-Up would you be my best friend?’ He said, ‘Sure,’ and he took it and now he’s just kind of left sitting there.’ (giggles) So I think he’s kinda gotten out of luck there somehow, and something might have been promised and didn’t come through.
RUSH: So you think the notion that Obama knows nothing about this is asking a bit much to be believed?
CALLER: Hooey. Yeah. (giggles) I would say so.
RUSH: You know, I’m happy to hear you say this. Do you know why?
RUSH: Because you’re exhibiting common sense, and do you know how few people do? We’ve gotten to the point where the truth is staring us right in the face and people say, ‘It can’t be,’ because we’ve been lied to so much by the Drive-By Media. We don’t know what to believe, including the truth. When the truth is right in front of us, or something — this may not be an established truth yet, but, for crying out loud! Everybody in this cesspool is tainted for years, and one guy, who was spawned by this cesspool —
RUSH: — has not been touched by it?
CALLER: I know.
RUSH: And somehow people find that easier to believe? So I’m honored. I’m flattered that somebody with common sense like you is in this audience.
CALLER: I think it’s absolutely… I’m almost crazy, you know, borderline crazy for people who just turn their heads the way that they’ve been.
RUSH: Well, we really can’t do anything about it. I don’t know people are turning their heads. What it is, Angelique (one of my all-time, top ten favorite female names, by the way).
RUSH: What it is, is that people don’t want to face this kind of stuff now. Barry hasn’t even been inaugurated. ‘Don’t hit me with this. I don’t want to deal with it. I want to stay lost in the illusion of hope and change —
RUSH: — and receding sea levels and all these things. Nobody hating America. I want to live in my cocoon, my warm little cocoon! Don’t hit me with these things. I don’t even want to confront it,’ and that’s where they are.
CALLER: Well, this year was certainly a very interesting election year for us as we’re kind of out flapping in the breeze with our family, so it made for a very interesting Thanksgiving.
RUSH: What, are you one of the few conservatives in your family?
CALLER: (laughs) Well, my husband comes from one of the union-backed Democratic families in Pennsylvania, and his father worked for a very large company and union and all that. So…
RUSH: You and your husband, how long have you been married?
CALLER: We’ve been married for 11 years now.
RUSH: And has he always been (ahem) of this, shall we say, persuasion and you’ve always been of your persuasion?
CALLER: You know, I want to say, in the last five years, I guess I finally rubbed off on him and he started… You know, he started actually… Now he knows more than I do.
RUSH: So the divide is not nearly as wide as it has been?
CALLER: Well, my husband and I, we’ve come to see eye-to-eye on things, and he went digging for himself.
RUSH: Ah, but it’s the rest of the family. What are you doing for Christmas?
RUSH: I’ve got 30 seconds left. What are you doing for Christmas?
CALLER: We’re going to go and I’m going to tell them, you know, ‘Let’s all be considerate, because it’s the holidays and we don’t all agree.’ (chuckles)
RUSH: What you want to tell ’em is… I don’t know. They all voted Obama. You ought to say, ‘Why are you people so irritable?’
RUSH: ‘Why are you so mad? Why do you want to get so mad at me? Your guy won! It’s the holidays. It’s Christmas! Better times are just around the corner. Why aren’t you happy?’ That’s what I would ask ’em, were I you.
