RUSH: Detroit and Robert. It’s great to have you, sir, on the Excellence in Broadcasting Network. Hello.
CALLER: Rush, how you doing?
RUSH: Great. Thanks. Couldn’t be better.
CALLER: Thank you for taking my call. All right. You know, I used to get real upset, you know, when I listened to you, you know? But really not much anymore now. I just wanted to say that, uhhh — that I’m — I’m definitely happy with the turnout of the election. But, you know, all the stuff that you say, you know, clearly basically say is one thing: that you are extremely disgusted that the President has brown skin.
RUSH: Now, why in the world…? How in the world do you accuse me of saying that? You know for a fact that is not true.
CALLER: I did not say. Rush? Rush, hold it. Rush —
RUSH: That has nothing to do with anything.
CALLER: I did not say that you said you were disgusted. I mean, the things that you’re saying. I mean you don’t have to directly say it, but all of these accusations. You are just completely railed, uh… You’ve given the man all kinds of bad lip, and he hasn’t even been inaugurated yet. It’s like you’re trying to taint this complete historical thing that’s going on here with a whole lot of, ‘Well, if he talked to this person or if his administration.’ It’s a lot of ifs and ‘Well, probably.’ Nothing has really been proven.
RUSH: You know, Robert, I think you’re misreading here. You may be calling the wrong show. We’re doing nothing but having a lot of fun here.
CALLER: And that’s another thing!
RUSH: What’s going on? Yeah, I do find a lot of humor here, but, Robert. Please, grow up.
CALLER: Rush? Rush?
RUSH: It’s 2008. It has nothing to do with the color of The Messiah’s skin.
CALLER: Oh, it absolutely does.
RUSH: It does not!
CALLER: I want to ask you another thing. Rush? Rush? I used to say to myself and people I knew, I’d said, ‘Well, Rush’s show going to turn into a comedy show after the election.’ ‘Cause after the election, I mean you didn’t play around with these little ridiculous kind of joking things.
RUSH: That’s right.
CALLER: You were pretty much — you were pretty much on the issues, you tried and tried and tried everything to get McCain to win. Now, you don’t care about McCain whatsoever. I know that you don’t. It’s just that —
RUSH: You know what I find, Robert?
CALLER: — I mean, you wouldn’t have cared if it were Pee-Wee Herman.
RUSH: I’m listening to every syllable you’re uttering; and between the two of us, the one who sounds mad is you. You sound mad as hell here. And you’re accusing me of saying things and doing things I haven’t said or done. I’m having a great old time. I’m jocular as I can be. You make me out to be some kind of sore loser. You’re a sore winner. I haven’t heard the last time a sore loser spends so much time laughing as I’ve been laughing. I’m loving this. You know, this country gets what it deserves. Elections matter. They have consequences. And hang on, Robert, ’cause the ride that you are headed for is going to be a giant stunner to you, regardless of the color of skin of anybody that’s serving in Washington. I’m glad you called and gave me a chance here to talk to you. In fact, there’s a lot of anger on the left. These people that are mad at Obama for Rick Warren? The left is perpetually enraged. They can’t get up and live without being mad — and Robert, you sound like you’re almost ready for a straitjacket out there you’re so mad, and you’re mad at me. And I can’t raise your taxes. And I can’t send you off to war. And I can’t do things economically that are going to force your company to fire you. You’re mad at the wrong guy.
RUSH: Pat in Houston, as we go back to the phones. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Oh, my God, Rush. Rush! Rush! (laughing) How are you?
CALLER: Well, Merry Christmas.
RUSH: Same to you.
CALLER: And this is ‘Sleepless in Houston.’ You get e-mails from me all the time. Anyway, I just… It is so hilarious, the reason I called is about the guy that called and accused you of running down Obama because of his color?
RUSH: Yeah, he accused me of being a sore loser, too.
CALLER: Well, a sore loser, but you know that old Shakespeare’s quote? It says, ‘Bad men have no ears’? These guys, they’re so in denial about this guy that’s what’s making ’em so mad. I mean, they are just — they are so — it’s just — but the way you put —
RUSH: Wait a minute. Wait a minute. How does being in denial about Obama make them mad?
CALLER: Well, it makes them mad because the truth is starting to come out about him, and they can’t… You know, they can’t handle the truth. They knew it was there. They knew it was there, and they denied it. They’re like the Republicans, or the conservatives are now. We won’t listen to the news now, but they listened to it before, and they weren’t getting the information they needed so they were in just complete denial.
RUSH: Okay, who’s mad at him right now? Why would the guy from Detroit, Robert, be mad at him? He thinks I’m mad at him? What do you think Robert in Detroit has realized that he didn’t know?
CALLER: Well, he’s realized that Obama is a Chicago thug, just like Bill Clinton called him.
RUSH: I don’t think he’s figured it out. I don’t think Robert’s figured this out yet. Now, some Obama voters, some leftist extremists are worried — and I keep trying to tell ’em not to be. They’re gonna get everything they want and more. Once they get past the public image and the PR of these cabinet choices and so forth.
