RUSH: We got news, our sales department called me yesterday, ladies and gentlemen, said that the Justice Brothers — an off-and-on client — had requested in-program commercial time for today. And I said, ‘What about?’ And they said, ‘The beer summit.’ I said, ‘Well, people are getting, you know — all right, we’ll sell ’em a couple commercials just for Friday, in the program, Justice Brothers on the beer summit.
(playing of Justice Brothers spoof)
RUSH: That’s a nice quick 30,000 bucks from the Justice Brothers. Thomas Lifson has an interesting comment at the AmericanThinker.com. The White House, the official White House photo, White House blog has published an official photo of one of the things that happened yesterday, and for those of you watching on the Dittocam, let me show it to you. I don’t want to mess with the focus, I really don’t, because I’ll never get the rest. What you have is Obama two steps ahead of Gates and the cop walking out of the West Wing. What we see is Obama’s like two or three paces ahead. Sergeant Crowley is helping Professor Gates who is walking with his cane down the steps.
This is what Lifson writes: ‘Sergeant Crowley, the sole class act in this trio, helps the handicapped Professor Gates down the stairs, while Barack Obama, heedless of the infirmities of his friend and fellow victim of self-defined racial profiling, strides ahead on his own.’ So who is showing compassion here for a minority? It’s the cop. The cop is helping Skippy Gates down the steps, and Obama is walking two steps ahead ignoring him. Folks, let me tell you something. My father told me many times, one of the best ways to judge someone’s character is to watch how they treat people who can’t do anything for them. If they treat people who can’t do anything for them like dirt, then you’re dealing with a lowbrow plastic banana, good-time rock ‘n’ roller phoniness, bad guys, no character whatsoever.
