RUSH: Joseph in Vancouver, great to have you on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Oh, my God, Rush, this is the greatest honor of my life.
RUSH: Thank you. Thank you very much. I appreciate that. I understand it, too.
CALLER: I’m 56. I travel all over the world, and I’m an educator, and I’ve also been in business, so I’ve been on both sides of this thing, and I teach theater, and I’m calling about the Camelot allegory.
RUSH: Oh, yes.
CALLER: Well, you know, it’s a perfect myth to address this whole thing with Obama because if you follow the whole play to the end, at the end Camelot is destroyed by the illegitimate son of King Arthur and a tryst with queen of the fairies.
RUSH: Yes. Yes!
CALLER: And that’s Mordred, and he comes back in and he attacks Camelot and destroys it. And he sings this song called the Seven Deadly Virtues, and it would be like a perfect thing for Obama’s voice to be singing that, it’s incredible. And you have King Arthur would have been I guess Kennedy, and Lancelot would be Clinton, and Carter is the crazy King Pellinore, who’s the guest of King Arthur. So I mean the allegory is perfect.
RUSH: Well, who would Obama be? Queen of the fairies?
CALLER: Obama is Mordred.
CALLER: The illegitimate son who destroys Camelot.
RUSH: For the sake of peace for me over the weekend, would you spell fairies as in queen of fairies?
CALLER: I think her name is Morgause. All you have to do is get the script for Camelot —
RUSH: No, no, no. I totally understand. But you said queen of fairies.
CALLER: Yeah. King Arthur went into the forest and was subdued by trickery, witchcraft, and then the queen —
CALLER: — had a relation with him, and the child of that illegitimate relationship was Mordred.
RUSH: Right, but she was queen of what, the fairies, I just need you to spell fairies.
CALLER: Fairies, like the mythical the Tinker Bells that are in the forest.
RUSH: Oh, f-a-i-r-i-e-s.
RUSH: Because he said it.
CALLER: (laughing) What?
RUSH: (laughing) I just want a peaceful weekend.
CALLER: Okay, well, thank you so much. It’s a great honor to be on your show.
RUSH: Joseph, that’s great. It’s a great idea, and we’ve got just the guy to put this together, just the guy. Paul Shanklin, white comedian, to put this together. You know we’re calling it Camelnot now because the last Kennedy is leaving Congress, the last Kennedy is leaving Washington.
CALLER: Camelot ends with a horrible ending. Why would they choose that for the allegory of their, you know —
RUSH: Well, you know, they didn’t choose that until after JFK was assassinated, and I think it was Jackie O and Ted Sorensen who came up with that.
CALLER: The ending is not good.
RUSH: Manufacture a public image. It was great marketing at the time, and the press, the press is still longing for the next one. They thought they had it with the Clinton administration, but that kind of went down the tubes with the semen stained blue dress.
