RUSH: Mike in Kansas City. Great to have you, sir. Welcome.

CALLER: Hey, Rush, it’s great to be on.

RUSH: Thank you, sir.

CALLER: I just wanted to call and tell you I’m a dentist out here in Kansas City, and I wanted to comment on the Kucinich story.

RUSH: Yeah, he’s suing over an olive pit or something, right?

CALLER: Correct. And it’s kind of funny because he’s suing for $150,000.

RUSH: I’m not familiar with the details out there, Mike. What damage to the oral cavity of Kucinich did the olive pit do?

CALLER: Well, that’s a good question, and they don’t tell you in the story. The story just says it’s serious and permanent.

RUSH: Ohhh, serious and permanent damage from an olive pit.

CALLER: Well it’s funny because, you know, a cavity is permanent if you don’t get it fixed. So it doesn’t really tell us exactly what happened.

RUSH: Yeah, okay, so why sue the dentist, or any dentist? Why not sue whoever grew the olive?

CALLER: Well, no, he is, he’s suing the cafeteria, the congressional cafeteria for $150,000.

RUSH: Oh, I thought he was suing the dentist. Okay.

CALLER: No. But what’s interesting is, you know, I have malpractice insurance, and they tell me that the average dental claim is $50,000. So it’s funny that Kucinich is going for three times that amount.

RUSH: What does that tell you?

CALLER: (laughing) It tells you that he’s an elitist. And I think it’s funny because I’ve had people come in, and I think the most I’ve ever charged someone, and I mean doing a full mouth reconstruction —

RUSH: Yeah.

CALLER: — $22,000.

RUSH: Twenty-two grand for a full mouth reconstruction?

CALLER: Yes. And that’s roughly a thousand dollars a crown. You do 20 crowns.

RUSH: You need to move to New York, even Palm Beach. You’d get 22 grand a tooth!

CALLER: Well, yeah, I know, I need to be your dentist and move down there.

RUSH: No. (laughing) I’m trying to figure out why you sue the cafeteria. It must have been that the olive was sold to him as pitted?

CALLER: Oh, no. I mean obviously they put something dangerous in his food.

RUSH: Well, but correct me. Maybe I’ve got the wrong story. Isn’t the Kucinich lawsuit over an olive pit?

CALLER: You’re right, you’re right.

RUSH: Yeah, it’s over an olive pit. So he’s suing the cafeteria over an olive pit which means he obviously thought he was chowing down on a pitted olive.

CALLER: Yeah. He said that it contained a dangerous substance.

RUSH: Oh, the pit?

CALLER: The sandwich, and that’s why he’s suing.

RUSH: Dangerous substance. Hmm.

CALLER: It’s funny that he claims —

RUSH: Well, all I know is, ladies and gentlemen, I was nowhere near there when it happened.

BREAK TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: Here are the details, by the way, on the Dennis Kucinich story. He’s ‘filed a legal complaint Wednesday in D.C. Superior Court, spelling out the case in chilling detail: The wrap was ‘unwholesome and unfit for human consumption, in that it was represented to contain pitted olives, yet unknown to plaintiff contained an unpitted olive.”

I knew it. So he chomped down into what he thought was a — I’ll bet you Kucinich thinks that the pimento in the olive is grown there. What do you think?
