RUSH: Elizabeth in Washington, DC, nice to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, dittos.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: I’m calling about the cartoon. I finally got to see it because my newspaper reprinted it today. And the cops who shot the chimp, that’s not a racist cartoon, that’s sexist. That’s old Nancy Pelosi lying there on the sidewalk.
RUSH: Yeah, let me describe, for those who haven’t heard it, or seen it. In fact, I have a Dittocam, for those of you unaware of it we televise the program each and every day on RushLimbaugh.com for members, my website. Yeah, I love that camera, it sees everything I do. I have to turn on the bars to have any measure of privacy in here. It’s a radio show and it’s on television. I have to worry about what shirt I’m wearing every day, otherwise people write me about that. All right, now, I’m going to hold the cartoon up for those of you who have not seen it. Can I get tight enough even here and have it stay in focus? All right, you can’t read it, probably, but you got two cops shooting a chimpanzee, right? That’s Sean Delonas in the New York Post cartoon yesterday. Here is what one cop says to the cop who shot the chimpanzee: ‘They’ll have to find somebody else to write the next stimulus bill.’ Now, what Elizabeth’s point is, is that Obama didn’t write it. Nancy Pelosi did. But if you watch the mainstream media, you don’t know that.
Sean Delonas, the cartoonist, obviously is more informed than the people having a cow over this. Did you watch Miami local TV news last night, by the way? Why not? Well, I seldom do. I don’t watch this local news, but I mean the local news in Miami was out rabble-rousing last night. They were getting groups, angry civil rights groups, ‘We’re marching on the Post, this is outrageous,’ exactly what I predicted. I predicted that the race industry would only intensify, that any little criticism of Obama would be cast as racism. So this is a play on that chimpanzee that went nuts the other day up in Stamford, Connecticut, the cops had to shoot, and the caption here, one cop to another: They’ll have to find somebody else to write the next stimulus bill. Obama didn’t write the stimulus bill. He delegated it. I don’t know that he’s even read it. I don’t know how many people have read it front-to-back. But if anything is being lampooned here, it’s Nancy Pelosi. She’s the one who wrote the thing, and then Harry Reid got hold of it and stuck his train in there, Disneyland to Las Vegas. So even as we speak Al Sharpton is leading a protest outside the building housing the New York Post in New York. Now, let’s not forget, of course, how many editorial cartoons there were for the past eight years depicting George W. Bush as some kind of monkey, shall we not?
