RUSH: Trisha, Trumbull, Connecticut, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Rush, although I’ve never met you, you are my friend and I believe a friend to everyone who desires that which is good and right —
RUSH: Well —
CALLER: — and success and happiness for all. EIB is wonderful, but I think it’s a huge understatement. To me you are Brilliance and Fearless Broadcasting and you deserve a promotion to something like Supreme Dean of Truth-Tellers.
CALLER: And the opposite of that is kakistocracy, which is government by the least qualified or most unprincipled, which I was reminded of when you were talking last week and many were about Blumenthal running for Senate against Linda McMahon to replace Chris Dodd.
RUSH: Yeah, what did you think of his attempt to explain how a job was created?
CALLER: Total fumbling, but that represents him. I mean, for a quarter century he has worked in government, for two decades he’s well earned the sobriquet Sue ‘Em All Blumenthal. I mean, he sued thousands of companies and well deserves the title of nation’s second worst attorney general this year rated by the Competitive Enterprise Institute. And it includes things like selective application of the law, ethical breaches fabricating law, usurping legislative powers. So, anyway, some think he would be even worse than Chris Dud, which —
RUSH: Well, I’ll tell you, anybody that doesn’t eat, you can’t trust them and he looks like he doesn’t eat. And the way the guy speaks, (imitating Blumenthal) ‘I’m proud of my service, I’m proud of my time served in Vietnam.’ Give me a break. Wuss.
