RUSH: Terry in Houston, thank you for waiting. You’re next, hello.

CALLER: Hey, Rush.

RUSH: Hey.

CALLER: Mega San Jacinto Day dittos from the great state of Texas.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: God bless our vets and all of our servicemen, too. I just wanted to call you real quickly because I was grinding when I heard the quotes from Obama this morning and then you quoted Samuel Adams, and I told Bo, ‘Ever since you were on the Limbaugh Letter as Paul Revere I’ve been wanting to call in, just to make the point that you are a modern day Samuel Adams much more than a Paul Revere,’ because you do such a great job of communicating to the American public what we needed to know about the legislation and all that kind of stuff. That’s exactly what Sam Adams did. Not only did he do all those other jobs you talked about earlier, but he was also a newspaper publisher. He organized a lot of the protests in Boston, including the tea party against the Crown. So I just wanted to make that point: You are a modern-day Samuel Adams. We appreciate everything you do.

RUSH: Terry, thank you very much. You’re very nice. I truly appreciate that much more than you know. If I were Tiger Woods I would say, ‘Of course and it’s a good thing you realize it,’ but I had a little humility here, and I do appreciate that. You’re very, very kind. Samuel Adams’ quote, once again. I mean, this guy knew about the tea parties. He was the tea parties back then. ‘It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.’ That’s exactly what the tea party is. That is from Samuel Adams.
