RUSH: And we’re back to the phones now, to Wilmington, Delaware, which I practically flew over going into Philadelphia last night. In fact, the arrival route took us right by Lincoln Financial Field and Citizens Bank Park where the Phillies play. I noticed they’ve taken down a big picture of Donovan McNabb on the end zone at Lincoln Financial Field. They have got Jeff McLane, number 10, the wide receiver up there. The lights were all off and we had almost an hour-and-a-half ground delay getting out of Philadelphia last night because of lightning and thunder in the area. So we rolled in here about 2:00 a.m., but it was fine. It was okay. I always have things to do on the airplane. Anyway, Rocky in Wilmington, it’s great to have you here on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Hey, Rush, thanks a lot. Listen, super Megadittos from the home state of brain-dead Joe Biden.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: It’s a pleasure to speak with you. Rush, I just wanted to say a few things concerning Mike Castle and the RNC here in Wilmington, Delaware. You are right. Mike Castle is fanning the flames of running as an independent. You know, there are rumors going around. What I would say is he has to do what’s best for the people of Delaware. He’s got to get up to everyone who supported him and thank them for their support. He’s got to get up there and say, ‘Now’s the time to stand with me and vote for Christine O’Donnell.’ That’s the only way that this woman’s going to get elected. Two, the other part is —
RUSH: No, it’s not. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. That is not the only way. I know what you’re saying, but that’s not the only way she’s going to get elected.
CALLER: Well, you know, the problem is, uh, if you go down to RNC headquarters — I went down a couple of days ago and I got a few signs — in front of RNC they have Mike Castle signs still up.
CALLER: When you walk inside, they have Mike Castle stickers and propaganda all over. Now, I asked, you know, ‘Aren’t you going to take these down and put up…?’
RUSH: Now, wait a minute. RNC, you mean Republican National Committee, or do you mean the Delaware Republican Party?
CALLER: The Delaware National Committee.
RUSH: The Delaware Republican Party?
CALLER: And I walked in there and I got my O’Donnell signs and they have Castle propaganda all over the place. And I asked, ‘Aren’t you going to take that down and put up O’Donnell?’ And their response was, ‘Well, he’s still Congressman Castle.’ I said, ‘That may be correct, but he’s not running for Congress.’ So, you know, right now everything is against Christine O’Donnell as far as Mike Castle goes. You know, he hasn’t called her on the phone, he hasn’t endorsed her. I’m hoping he would do the right thing by endorsing her — and if I may say one other thing, sir, about Chris Coons.
RUSH: Yes. By all means.
CALLER: Two times he ran in the State of Delaware, he won both times. Both times he ran, he pledged not to raise taxes; both times he raised taxes. So, this is someone that Christine O’Donnell is running against and I would put her record up against his any day. And with that, I’ll sit back and listen to your show. Thank you for taking me.
RUSH: Okay, Rocky, you bet. I think all this is just… To me it’s axiomatic. Anybody with a D next to their name, you vote against them. And people talk about making things too simplistic? No, we make the complex understandable. I don’t care if this guy has stood for tax cuts and opposed them two times. I don’t care about that. He’s the Democrat. He’s a liberal Democrat. We don’t need any more of them. (interruption) ‘What about the conservative Democrats? What about the Blue Dog Democrats, conservative Democrats?’ Uh, if they’ve got a (D) next to their name, you get rid of them. We’re not pussyfooting around here. They got a (D) next to their name, it’s history. If you’re conservative, come out and say you’re conservative first and put a (C) by your name or join the Republican Party or whatever. ‘But Rush! But, Rush! What about the Reagan Democrats?’ Well, Reagan Democrats are an (R) in front of the (D). They weren’t making any bones about it.
You know, if Mike Castle is so beloved by the liberals of Delaware, wouldn’t his running as a third party help O’Donnell? Wouldn’t he siphon votes away from what’s his face, this Coons guy? If Mike Castle is so beloved, why is anybody worried about him having a write-in campaign? He’s just going to siphon votes away from all the liberals, right? If he’s so beloved? So go ahead, Mike, do your write-in campaign. Take votes away from this Coons clown. You guys have an argument: Who’s going to raise taxes faster, who’s going to raise them higher. You guys get in a little shouting match over how rotten Christine O’Donnell is. I told the people in the audience in Philadelphia last night, this escapes me.
All this, people on our side telling me, ‘Rush, I don’t know about Sarah Palin. I’m worried.’
‘What? You want four more years of this? You want four more years of Obama and Biden and all the rest of them? You want four more years of assaults on the United States? Where is the question here?’
‘I don’t know, Rush. This Christine O’Donnell, you know, she’s got some baggage. She’s a little weird.’
‘You want an Obama clone? You want more of Obama? What? I don’t understand this.’ It’ll be six more years, six more years of this! Who wants to, who wants to even try to survive that?’
I really don’t think this is complicated at all. You know, I’ve seen Christine O’Donnell. I’ve watched her on television. She’s bright. She’s smart. She’s conservative. I don’t see the problem here. I really… We look around at all of the deadbeat worthless human debris candidates on the Democrat side and we want to start splitting hairs about genuine conservatives who can beat these people? Somehow I missed this train and I’m glad I did.
RUSH: Robert ‘Sheets’ Byrd was in the United States Senate for 40 years. We have people on our side worried about Christine O’Donnell somehow doing damage to the country, to the party? It’s amazing to listen to all this. If they’ve got a (D) next to their name, they’re history. It’s that simple.
RUSH: I’ll say something else about Christine O’Donnell. You ready? I’d rather look at her than Mike Castle. I think she’s kind of cute. I think she’s kind of refreshing. She’s a conservative. What’s the problem? You’re telling me Robert Byrd, Castle?
