RUSH: Molly in Carmel, California. What a beautiful place!
RUSH: Now, are you in Carmel Valley or you in Carmel by the Sea?
CALLER: No, I’m Carmel by the Sea.
RUSH: Ah! Because Doris Day, who is a friend of mine, lives in Carmel Valley.
CALLER: I go to her place every Tuesday and Friday night with my standard poodle Bocelli.
RUSH: Yeah, she’s practically got a zoo there. I know.
CALLER: Yeah, she’s a wonderful lady. Well, I’m a first-time caller, Rush. I’m so excited to be on your program. I wanted to tell you that Karl Rove is coming to the Monterey Conference Center along with a fellow by the name of David Plouffe, who is a Barry man.
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, David who? What’s the last name?
CALLER: I don’t know if I’m pronouncing it right. David P-loof. He was former —
RUSH: Oh, it’s ‘fluff’. Yeah, David Plouffe, one of Obama’s campaign guys.
CALLER: Okay. So anyway, they have a conference going, and the topic is, ‘Can the partisan divide ever end?’ and what I want to say is, in the papers — and I want to name names. This CNN correspondent, Frank Sesno, he goes, ‘We trust our (garbled) readers will refrain from throwing shoes or pies at the worthy Mr. Rove.’ Now, now, you know, if we’re going to end some sort of divide like they’re saying, what a ridiculous comment to make.
RUSH: I think Mr. Sesno was trying to be funny, but this is typical of liberal humor. The premise, you know, the belief here is that Karl Rove is going to be targeted. They just think, ‘Rove? Oh, my God, Rove’s coming out!’ So he said, ‘We trust people won’t throw pies or shoes at Karl Rove.’ It’s just… I don’t know. It doesn’t have a whole lot of class to it. But I just think these guys are trying to be funny. I think that’s an example of their sense of humor. They’re not funny, but don’t worry. Even if somebody throws a pie or a shoe at Karl Rove, he’ll dive in the audience after ’em. Karl Rove doesn’t take this from anybody. He’ll be fine. Everything’s cool. Look… (sigh) It’s just what it is. I’m glad that you saw that. That’s who they are. Now, Snerdley thinks that Sesno is sending out a signal to throw shoes and pies at Rove, and that could be. Maybe they want that picture. Maybe they want that kind of thing to happen. If they want that kind of thing to happen, do this in Santa Cruz. (laughing) Go up the road to UC Santa Cruz and it will happen without anybody saying a word.
