RUSH: We have 17-year-old Tanner from Cleveland on the phone, and thank you. Appreciate your patience.
CALLER: How you doing, Rush?
RUSH: Very good. Thanks.
CALLER: Good. I’ve been listening to you for two years now, and I’m so happy that you’re on the radio.
CALLER: I found you and everything.
RUSH: Well, congratulations to you, sir. Thank you. You made my day. I appreciate it.
CALLER: Oh, man, I just want to tell you one more thing before I go on. I work at a golf range so any time you come to Cleveland, you just come to my golf range and you can have as many balls as you want.
RUSH: (laughing) All right. What’s the name of…? Go ahead. What’s the name of range?
CALLER: Oh, it’s called Southwest Golf Center.
RUSH: Southwest Golf Center, in Cleveland.
CALLER: Yes. In Cleveland, Ohio.
RUSH: Indoors and outdoors?
CALLER: It’s outdoors, all outdoors.
RUSH: Outdoors. Well, you can’t have everything.
CALLER: Yes. (chuckles) Okay, I just wanted to comment on something you said — I don’t know if you were talking about it Monday or Tuesday — about how Joe Bite Me was talking about how he locked up a reporter in the closet. Wouldn’t he get in trouble like that? Like wouldn’t he be going to jail for that?
RUSH: Well, it was his staff. I’m sure that Vice President Bite Me had what’s called “plausible deniability,” meaning he had no clue, which is not hard to convince people that he’s clueless.
RUSH: What happened was his staff did it. There was this lone reporter, and they send the guy into custodial closet inside this guy’s mansion ’cause they did not want him mingling with the guests.
CALLER: Uh huh.
RUSH: They didn’t want the guests to meet this riffraff reporter. Let me tell you, Tanner, the story here is the reporter was not upset. The reporter for the most part understood it. He said, “Ah, people are making way too much over this, about this. It’s not that big a deal. They let me out now and then. They just didn’t want me mingling with the guests.” Can you imagine if the vice president had been Dick Cheney and this had happened? I mean every journalist organization in the world would be banding together. It would have been the sole topic on CNN, MSNBC, for who knows how long. But, nah, it’s not actionable against the Vice President. You have to wonder: People pay whatever they paid to get in there. Would they rather have talked to the reporter or listened to Biden? It’s a toss-up. But they never got a chance to meet the reporter.
