RUSH: Last night I’m minding my own business, actually reading a novel and I get an e-mail from my buddy Pete Wehner saying, ‘Hey, if you haven’t seen it there’s a great piece at our magazine, Commentary magazine: How to Understand Rush Limbaugh.’ And I thought, ‘It must be if Pete’s pointing it out to me.’ This guy, Wilfred McClay, writes about, how to put this… we’re into our 23rd year here and he raises things that have not been asked before other than by Zev Chafets in the book Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One. So we’ve linked to it at RushLimbaugh.com. It’s a long piece. We’ve linked to it on Facebook as well.
RUSH: Okay, to the phones. We’ll start in Greenville, North Carolina, and Sarina. I’m glad you called. It’s great to have you here, and hello.
CALLER: Hi, Mr. Limbaugh. How are you? It’s such an honor to speak to you.
RUSH: Thank you very much.
CALLER: Anyway, I’m calling to tell you I’m a little bit mad at you because I got up this morning and I got on my Facebook and I saw the post that you had to look at that article on how to understand Rush Limbaugh, and I read the entire thing and it’s absolutely excellent, and you told your viewers that you ‘hardly’ recommend it, but it’s excellent. Why?
RUSH: Well, no, no, no. I said I ‘heartily’ recommend it.
CALLER: Oh, heartily! I misunderstand. That’s my mistake. I thought you said you ‘hardly’ recommend it.
RUSH: Why would I bring it up if I don’t want to recommend it?
CALLER: That’s true. I just wanted to tell you that I love you, I listen to you every day, I’m seven months pregnant, so I’ve got a genuine Rush Baby in utero.
RUSH: (laughing) Well, that young child is destined to pop out of there way ahead of the game.
CALLER: Absolutely. Thank you.
RUSH: Congratulations. Sarina, thanks very much, thanks for the call. No, I said heartily recommend, h-e-a-r-t-i-l-y.
