RUSH: David, Springfield, Missouri, great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Yeah! Rush, it’s an honor to speak with you. I’ve been listening to you since September of 1998 when you gave the Condom Updates and all that.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Claire McCaskill came out today and said the reason Ike Skelton was beat by Vicky Hartzler — you know, he’s an 18-term rep from Missouri, and the reason he lost — is because of low voter turnout, which is not the truth because people are ‘voting him mad’ here in Missouri. But her excuse was voters didn’t turn out, and I just think he’s in denial because I think her number’s gonna be up next.
RUSH: Well, let me tell you something. Let’s tackle this. I love this theory, low turnout, low turnout. I’ve always wondered about this low turnout business. McCaskill is up in two years, by the way, so she’s trying to set the table here. If your voters love you, if your voters know you’re in trouble, and if your voters don’t turn out for you when turnout’s the answer, then isn’t the problem you, not the voters? I mean, how the Democrats kept saying, ‘We need turnout. We need you to turn out for us,’ and the voters didn’t. They did not turn out for Ike Skelton; they turned out for his opponent. Notice it’s always the voters’ problem with Democrats. It’s always the voters’ problem. It’s always your fault. Also with Lindsey Graham it’s always your fault. But if the voters don’t turn out for you, it seems to me the problem is you.
