RUSH: Carol in Baltimore. Glad you called. Great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hi. I’m sure you won’t be happy after a while, but mega dittos.
RUSH: Thank you very much. I appreciate your calling.
CALLER: I am a liberal. I listen to your show a lot, most of —
RUSH: What country are you from?
CALLER: I am from the USA.
RUSH: Oh. You’re an American liberal. Okay.
CALLER: Yeah. Where did you think I came from? I’m certainly not somebody down in — I don’t know, from Afghanistan.
RUSH: I don’t know. You just, I’m sorry. You know, I have a hearing problem, I have a cochlear implant, and you do have a mannerism, a speaking mannerism that sounds international.
CALLER: Well, I don’t know what that means.
RUSH: You probably perfected that while at university.
CALLER: No. I did not. I perfected it in Savannah, Georgia.
RUSH: You’re from Savannah?
CALLER: Yes, I am. I’m from Savannah, Georgia.
RUSH: That’s a huge capitalist town, you know, they make Gulfstream jets there.
CALLER: Well, you know what? Wonderful. I love capitalism.
RUSH: It is wonderful.
CALLER: I love capitalism and I’m a capitalist. I am a small business owner.
RUSH: Well, then how can you be liberal?
CALLER: How can I?
RUSH: You have to hate yourself, then. If you’re a capitalist and a small business owner, you have to hate yourself.
CALLER: Why would I hate myself?
RUSH: Well, because liberals hate small business, they hate capitalism —
CALLER: No, they don’t. That’s why I called.
RUSH: — injustice and inequity and —
CALLER: Thank you. That’s why I called. To find out —
RUSH: Okay, okay, hold on. Just please hold on, we’ll come back after the commercial time-out. Don’t go away.
RUSH: Back now to Carol in Baltimore. We have a little bit more time now, Carol. I appreciate your holding on through the break.
CALLER: Well, thank you. I’m just excited that you would even have a liberal on your radio show.
RUSH: Well, we have ’em on each and every time they call.
CALLER: Well, I’ve never heard a liberal call in. I listen to your show every day.
RUSH: No, then that’s not possible.
CALLER: Well, it is.
RUSH: Now, wait a minute. I don’t want to waste time arguing facts here.
CALLER: Okay, we won’t argue.
RUSH: Please don’t hit me with these —
CALLER: We won’t argue because I’m not going to go there.
RUSH: Yeah, but, see, you already started. In the first call, you said I wasn’t going to be happy after talking to you. That’s the first clue I had you’re a liberal. The second thing is you then hit me with this gobbledygook image that we don’t take liberals on this show, when that’s not true. Now, you’re here, and you’ve been held on through the break, you’re going to be given all the time you want to say whatever you want including —
CALLER: Wait a minute, why are you so angry? I didn’t get upset at you.
RUSH: I am not angry. I’m frustrated. You sound like an intelligent woman —
CALLER: I am a very intelligent woman.
RUSH: Well, then you need to do something about your level of education and understanding, ’cause this program does not restrict liberals from appearing.
CALLER: I didn’t say that you restrict. Did I use that word?
RUSH: You did too.
CALLER: I did not.
RUSH: Here we go. You said, I’m so happy, I’m excited you would have a liberal on the show.
CALLER: I said because I hadn’t heard them. Excuse me! I hadn’t heard.
RUSH: Even though you said you listen every day. I warn you, do not debate my memory. Do not debate my facts.
CALLER: I listen to you every day.
RUSH: You will lose.
CALLER: That’s why I’m not a Dittohead.
RUSH: You must not listen all day every day because we have liberals call here all the time. I can understand why you’d want to maybe forget them. They’re not the most memorable phone calls, but nevertheless they do call, and we put ’em to the front of the line. Do you realize there are four people on hold who have been holding longer than you, but because you’re a liberal you got through.
CALLER: Well, I don’t want to have any kind of preference. I would just rather just call and be in line. I don’t want to be a liberal.
RUSH: Gee Whiz! My God. All right, I’ll tell you what, we’re gonna put you on hold, and we’ll put the other three people ahead of you. Just hang on; we’ll come back. Who’s next? Where are we going next? She wanted it, folks. She wanted it. She wants equal treatment, fine, she doesn’t want any preferential treatment.
RUSH: Okay, we want to check in with Carol in Baltimore. She requested to go to the end of the line to be fair. Carol, are you there?
CALLER: Yes, I am, Rush. How are you?
RUSH: All right. I just have one more call to go in front of you.
CALLER: Okay. Go ahead.
RUSH: All right? Put her back on hold.
RUSH: I will put Carol from Savannah, Georgia, in the queue tomorrow (the q-u-e-u-e, not the c-u-e) and we will be talking to her tomorrow at her request in the normal line in which she ends up being. No preferential treatment for her, by her request.
