RUSH: Tom in Albany, great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.

CALLER: Hi, Rush.


CALLER: It’s an honor to speak with you.

RUSH: Thank you very much, sir. I appreciate that.

CALLER: Well, I’m a big fan. I spoke to you once before and it was a thrill. I’d like to comment on Speaker Pelosi’s comments the other day about violence and she’s nervous, not only is she a bad actress, she’s the ultimate hypocrite.

RUSH: You know, before you talk about that, we’ve got a sound bite trilogy here that I want to use on this which will set up what you’re going to say. Will you listen to these with me?

CALLER: Sure. I’d love to.

RUSH: We’ll start with number seven because this is a media montage, this is the State-Controlled Media falling for Pelosi’s tears yesterday.

BAIER: Speaker Nancy Pelosi got emotional.

BLITZER: (b-roll) Nancy Pelosi’s emotional answer.

BROWN: Speaker Pelosi getting emotional.

MATTHEWS: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spoke emotionally.

COOPER: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi actually tearing up today.

SCHULTZ: Nancy Pelosi’s emotion.

MADDOW: It’s especially striking, this Speaker of the House, who rarely shows that type of emotion.

RUSH: Man, oh, man. I mean the templates get started. It was fake. Look, it’s well-known fact, this is been proven in John Kerry’s case — he served in Vietnam, by the way — but people that Botox up cannot cry.

CALLER: Well, she’s a bad actress but —

RUSH: Well, I know she’s a bad actress, she’s a bad actor. I want to go back, because the media falls for this every time. Here’s Hillary January 7th, 2008, this is during the Democrat primaries, after she got skunked in Iowa, couldn’t believe what happened.

HILLARY: It’s not easy, it’s not easy, and I couldn’t do it if I just didn’t, you know, passionately believe it was the right thing to do. You know, I have so many opportunities from this country. I just don’t want to see us fall backwards, no.

RUSH: The tears of a clown.

CALLER: We know how sincere those tears were.

RUSH: Absolutely. Now, let’s go back and let’s listen to Pelosi’s tears of a clown based on her fears of violence.

PELOSI: This balance between freedom and safety is one that we have to carefully balance. I have concerns about some of the language that is being used because I saw this myself in the late seventies in San Francisco, this kind of rhetoric is very frightening and it created a climate in which we — violence dictates.

CALLER: Democratic Party of Cynthia McKinney who used the Black Panthers for her bodyguards, didn’t the Black Panthers show up in Philadelphia outside of voting stations with baseball —

RUSH: Yeah, yeah.

CALLER: — didn’t Howard Dean say, ‘I hate all Republicans –‘ hate. And one of the Democrats or their clowns said, ‘Where is Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him’ when Bush was president?

RUSH: That’s right. Forgotten that. Where is Lee Harvey Oswald when you need him?

CALLER: And also, another one of the brilliant scholars on the democratic side said, ‘If only Dick Cheney’s pacemaker would malfunction just one time, we’d be rid of him.’

RUSH: That’s exactly right.

CALLER: And she’s crying about hateful statements? Rush, tell me something. Am I crazy or is Pelosi out of her mind?

RUSH: No, you’re definitely not crazy. It’s difficult for someone who doesn’t have a mind to be out of one’s mind.

CALLER: And I think she’d better keep a close eye on Bill Ayers if she’s worried about violence.

RUSH: Well, no, look, I can understand Pelosi’s sentiment but I am very suspicious of it.

CALLER: Well, I am, too.

RUSH: Because I think they’re setting the table now so they can point fingers of blame, just like they’re charging racism to excuse any failures of Obama, oh, it’s not his ideas, it’s not his agenda, it’s not his personality, no, no, no, no, the only reason Obama failed is because racists rule America. That’s what they’re setting up. And all this talk about violence, they’re the ones with the hate-filled rhetoric; they’re the ones that did movies on assassinating Bush; they’re the ones that wrote books on assassinating Bush. They’re the ones that set up climates of violence. They benefit from them. These are the people of chaos. So she’s out there, she’s just playing a strategic game here. I wouldn’t put it past Pelosi to want to be trying to create some violence with this. Town hall meeting, the poor 34-year-old black conservative shows up at the Russ Carnahan — IQ of a pencil eraser — town hall meeting outside St. Louis, and union thugs dispatched by the White House beat him up, and he has to go to the ER. They’ve already incited violence. Oh, it’s beyond the pale. It is beneath the dignity of any high government official to be doing anything like this. In fact, let’s go back, Pelosi herself, August 4th this year.

PELOSI: I think they’re Astroturf, you be the judge. Carrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on health care.

RUSH: Yeah, so she’s doing her own inciting.
