RUSH: Lady Gaga, folks, has weighed in on the Arizona immigration law. This is about the level of intelligence, this is about the equal mind-set of everybody in the Obama administration.
GAGA: I’ll tell you what we have to do about SB 1070. We have to be active. We have to actively protest. I will yell and I will scream louder and I will hold you and we will hold each other and we will peaceably protest this state. Because if it wasn’t for all of you immigrants this country wouldn’t have (bleep).
RUSH: That’s the brilliant Lady Gaga performing Saturday in Phoenix in opposition to the Arizona immigration law. By the way, a Mexican drug cartel has apparently just put a $1 million bounty on Joe Arpaio. A $1 million bounty on the head of Sheriff Joe Arpaio has been placed by a Mexican drug cartel. So there you have it, Lady Gaga.
To the phones we go, Jerry in Cookeville, Tennessee, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Hello, Rush. Congratulations on 22 years.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Being the number one all time most influential broadcaster, and on your recent wedding, Rush.
RUSH: Thank you very much, sir.
CALLER: The deal with Andy Griffith, he’s doing a spot now for Obamacare. I was wondering, do you think somebody let him out of the home or did he sneak out or how do you think he did this, Rush?
CALLER: And you know something, Rush?
CALLER: I ran into Andy Griffith about 35 years ago in San Pedro, California. That’s in the South Bay area. There was a clock shop down by Point Fermin Park.
CALLER: And me and some friends were down by the store down there, and he came pulling up in a dirty, beat-up Rolls-Royce with all of the primer spots on it and there was like three of us out there and he got out of the car and made a mad dash into the clock shop and ran out, didn’t even say a word to us. I mean, it was like, you know, we were a bunch of paparazzi wanting to take pictures of him. So I knew the guy was a phony 35 years ago.
RUSH: I don’t think it’s well known, but Andy Griffith is a well-known leftist. Oh, yeah. Andy Griffith is a well known leftist and he’s got a reputation for being nasty.
CALLER: Well —
RUSH: What you experienced is not uncommon. I guess it’s not well known because of the characters that he’s played on TV. No, he let Otis out of jail all the time. It’s a perfect example of a leftist, Otis constantly drunk. Griffith campaigned for Obama. Do you people not remember this? Oh, yeah. Andy Griffith campaigned for Obama. In fact, here is Andy Griffith for Obamacare.
(playing of Griffith spoof.)
RUSH: Back in 1984 the Democrats tried to get Andy Griffith to run against Jesse Helms. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Andy Griffith talked about good crackers in those Ritz cracker commercials. Where do you think we got this? You know, we’re not sitting here, we’re not boobs, we’re not isolated making things up. Be a good cracker, a good cracker. Talk about good crackers, a Ritz cracker commercial. We’re on the case here at the EIB Network.
