RUSH: I love it. Cheney’s at the Bush library groundbreaking yesterday in Dallas. He said this.
CHENEY: The George W. Bush Presidential Center isn’t much to look at it just yet, but the workers are ready, construction will move fast after today’s groundbreaking. This may be the only shovel-ready project in America. (audience laughter)
RUSH: (laughing) The only shovel-ready project in America. I mean everything that these people stand for they’re having it rammed right down their throats, starting with the election. I mean they have staked their happiness, their success, their identity on being able to destroy people like Sarah Palin and her family, and me, and Cheney. And we’re surviving and we’re laughing. And we are happy. And that bugs ’em, too. That bugs ’em, too. S.E. Cupp, columnist extraordinaire, New York Daily News, has a piece on that very subject today. The left is miserable because Bristol Palin is happy, because Sarah Palin’s happy, because they’re enjoying life as Americans. Remember, you’re not supposed to do that. When there’s any misery out there, happiness is unfair. We’re all supposed to be miserable.
RUSH: Here’s Carol in Roswell, Georgia, great to have you on the EIB Network.
CALLER: Thank you so much for taking my call, Rush.
RUSH: Yes, madam.
CALLER: I’m a longtime listener and NFL alum dittos from the Atlanta area.
RUSH: Thank you.
CALLER: Yeah, Mr. Snerdley kept me on track. I was calling about your comments on being happy. I don’t watch Dancing with the Stars but I’m very, very happy, and I just want to thank you for being such an entertaining talk show host and spreading good cheer.
RUSH: Well, thank you. It’s the holiday season and I love the holiday season.
CALLER: Well, blessed happy Thanksgiving. What you said, I feel like the left, you know, wants us all to feel this false and self-righteous heaviness of spirit and that if you’re happy, you really don’t care about, well, whatever it is they’re talking about.
RUSH: Right, if you’re happy, then you don’t have a sufficient capacity to suffer.
CALLER: That’s right. And I was so happy to see Mr. Cheney walk out on that stage.
RUSH: Oh, yeah.
CALLER: He reminds me of my dad who was World War II vet.
CALLER: And you always knew where he stood. You know, he acted like an adult. He wasn’t trying to be your buddy. He was in charge and you felt like you could trust him. And I just thank him for demanding the respect that he does without —
RUSH: He’s a great patriot. He had a great line at the groundbreaking yesterday for the Bush Presidential Center. He said, ‘This is probably the only shovel-ready project in the country,’ in a clever jab at Obama.
RUSH: Hey, folks, I have a great economic stimulus idea: Dick Cheney on Dancing with the Stars. Think of all the liberals who would take out guns or some other weapon and destroy their TVs and then have to replace them. What an economic stimulus that would be.
