RUSH: Rich in White Plains, New York. Thank you for calling, sir. You are next.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. It’s an honor.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Real quick: I’m in New York, I’m a Jets fan, who do you like tonight?
RUSH: Who do I like tonight? You gotta go Jets. I mean, there’s —
CALLER: Okay. That’s what I wanted to hear.
RUSH: You got too many problems on the purple side of the ball tonight.
CALLER: You mean not concerning genitalia?
RUSH: Well, no, including genitalia but I wasn’t speaking specifically of genitalia. One thing that Moss may help is the running game. They might have to be able to put as many people in the box they haven’t had a running game. They have not had a running game because the Vikings had not had a deep threat. They do have that with Moss.
RUSH: They’re gonna get [Darrelle] Revis back tonight. I think it’s going to be a good game.
CALLER: Yeah. Yeah.
RUSH: And it’s on the only for the Vikings. They’ll be 1-3 if they lose this thing.
CALLER: Yes, and for the Jets, too, if they want to stay on top. Hey, Rush, what I wanted to talk to you about is the liberal entrapment tool that was created with regard to illegal immigration. We saw the Meg Whitman thing. Now they’re doing it to Lou Dobbs. The liberals have created an environment where you cannot question a person’s legal status even though it’s illegal to be here in the country if you’re not here legally. So they create this environment where you can’t question it, but yet when you try to go through whatever legal channels for employment, and you get caught with an illegal, the liberals jump on you! It’s a lose-lose situation. You can’t ask them any further than what the law requires them to provide. You can’t go beyond that question them otherwise you’re labeled a racist, okay?
CALLER: And then when they find out that the person’s illegal, then they condemn you anyway. So I’m frustrated that nobody sees that. It’s a lose-lose. It’s like entrapment.
RUSH: Yeah. It’s a setup.
CALLER: It’s a setup.
RUSH: Exactly what you’re saying. I know exactly what you mean, and there’s no question that Meg Whitman took a hit on this, and it’s unfortunate. There’s no question she took a hit on it and she’s going to have to work hard to overcome it. But it’s still exactly as you say. You can’t go too far in asking because then you’re profiling. You’re being racist. But somehow the word spreads. Somehow these people end up with the business card of Gloria Allred. They all end up with that business card! They all have that phone number, toll free. And then a car comes and picks ’em up and takes ’em to wherever Allred’s press conference is. You know, just follow the red carpet to where you see the cameras. It’s a nice little routine that they have going.
RUSH: From Bakersfield, California, Matt, thank you for waiting, and welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you very much, Rush.
CALLER: How are you?
RUSH: Very well. Thank you.
CALLER: I live in California as you announced, and the daily beating that the conservatives take in California from the liberal media regarding, you know, once again Boxer, Meg Whitman, and this weekend I had the opportunity to attend the Bakersfield business conference where I for the first time got to actually listen to Sarah Palin and Karl Rove and Laura Bush and Mitt Romney. How do you — I mean I’m trying to get a suggestion on how do you keep positive about us winning and all of a sudden it’s this daily beating. Where’s Gloria Allred when Meg Whitman is being called a whore?
RUSH: You know, we’ve learned here, I think it was Jerry Brown’s wife that actually called her the whore on that phone call.
RUSH: That’s the latest I’m hearing on this, that’s what Fox News is reporting, that Jerry Brown’s wife called Meg Whitman the whore. People ask me how I stay optimistic. I admit I have an advantage over all of you. I’ve got this microphone. I get to come here for three hours every day and I get to vent. It’s very healthy. I see the changes that have resulted because I’m here. I would be a fool not to be optimistic cause it’s the evidence — and the polling data that’s out there now about where we’re headed, I go back and forth. I mean there are times like you, I see people on our side being decimated and creamed and unjustifiably so and wonder where’s the fairness or justice, but then I realize it’s the rules, it’s the league that we play in. The people on our side have to know those rules and be prepared to compete with those rules, which means you can’t whine about it because it is what it is.
