RUSH: McCain’s mother is dumping on me. On The Tonight Show last night, Leno said to Roberta McCain, ‘How about Rush Limbaugh? You one of his fans?’
ROBERTA MCCAIN: What he thinks about and represents of the Republican Party has nothing to do with my side of it. I don’t know what the man means. I don’t know what he’s talking about. The chairman of the Republican Party, Steele, was exactly right when he defined this man as an entertainer. And, to my horror, the Republican Party made him back up on it. Limbaugh — you’re a compliment when you say the man is an entertainer. I don’t know what he is, but he does not represent the Republican Party that I belong to.
RUSH: She’s right. She’s absolutely right. The Republican Party she belongs to get shellacked election after election after election. Man, send McCain’s mother out to dump on me? (laughing) No, I love it. I love it. Her son said the same thing. (impersonating McCain) ‘He’s just an entertainer, he’s just an entertainer, got it, got it? He’s just an entertainer, he-he, he-he, he-he. He’s a clown, good clown, circus, that’s it. He-he, he-he. You got it?’ I don’t know what the man means; I don’t know what the man means.
