RUSH: Last night in Las Vegas at an early get-out-the-vote event Dingy Harry spoke and said this.
REID: When Barack Obama was elected president, he found himself in a hole so deep that he couldn’t see the outside world. It was like the Chilean miners, but he, being the man that he is, rolled up his sleeves and said, ‘I’m gonna get us out of this hole.’
RUSH: No. The difference, Dingy Harry, is we’re still in the shaft. If you’re gonna compare Obama to the Chilean miners, we’re still down there and he’s still down there. He hasn’t gotten anybody out, much less us, certainly not himself. He’s still digging. He’s digging the mine shaft deeper, Dingy Harry. He’s admittedly in a ditch. He’s not out of the ditch. This is a deathly, deathly bad analogy for Dingy Harry to bring up. We gotta get out of the shaft on November 2nd. Obama’s still going to be in it. Obama couldn’t get himself out of a mine if his life depended on it.
You have to laugh, you know, last week’s debate with Dingy Harry and Sharron Angle — by the way, Dingy Harry’s already been in the recording studio to build on that great performance of his in that debate. But here he is, here’s Sharron Angle, she’s a grandmother, she’s Betty Crocker. And how does Dingy Harry describe her? An extremist, a tool of the special interests. It’s just the script. It’s just what you say about anybody who is an opponent of Democrats. It doesn’t matter whether they are or aren’t extremists or tools of the special interests. You just say it. It’s been shown to work. It’s focus group data. Here’s Dingy Harry and his message for the country and Nevada after the debate.

RUSH: See what I’m talking about? Extremist.
