RUSH: Terry in Phoenix. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello, sir.
CALLER: Oh, Rush, Rush, Rush, I am so… I’m really jacked here. I hope my broadcast insurance with the Justice Brothers is current. If not, Bo better keep his hand on the bleep button.
RUSH: Ah, we got a 40 second delay here. You have no qualms whatsoever.
CALLER: All right, great. First of all: Tom, the guy that sent you that e-mail? Screw him. You’ve gotta hit the opponent with as much as you got every chance you get. You don’t hold anything back at any time. So…
RUSH: Well, Tom thought I wasn’t being optimistic enough, spending too much time whining, which I don’t agree with. I don’t think I’m whining. I think I’m trying to correct the record and teach but to each his own.
RUSH: Yeah, go ahead.
CALLER: Okay, since —
RUSH: How much time you need? We got about 4-1/2 minutes.
CALLER: That should be plenty, I hope.
CALLER: I feel like, since he was elected the Speaker of the House, he’s been wooing me; and he’s a really good-looking guy and he’s been talking nice things to me — you know, me being the regular taxpayer, and while things were really good, looking good and I decided, “Sure, I’ll go with this guy,” and then last Friday night, you know, there we were at the dance, and I think he mighta slipped me a roofie, because when I woke up Saturday morning, man, I was sore all over. I think it was date rape. I’m not sure.
RUSH: Whoa ho-ho-ho. Whoa, from Alan Simpson accusing people of “diddling” their secretaries while talking about “social issues” to you feeling date raped we’ve about covered it here.
CALLER: Well, the best thing that we got out of that deal is maybe they’re playing reruns on NPR, otherwise we got nothing. You know?
CALLER: So I got two questions —
RUSH: (laughing) I love that. Play reruns on NPR. Okay, what are the questions?
CALLER: What are we gonna do about Boehner? You know, for years and years us Republicans have been, “Oh, well, you know, he didn’t realize that it was gonna come out that way, and he was trying his best, and he’s doing the good work,” and yada yada, blah, blah, but we can’t afford that, Rush. You know, things are too close.
RUSH: Boehner is a good guy. You know, I’ve played golf with Boehner and I know him. He’s a good guy, and he’s (I think), in a lot of cases, animated by not making what he thinks were the mistakes made during the Newt days, and he clearly thinks the government shutdown was a mistake. He doesn’t want to be perceived as the architect of that. You know, we disagree about that. I don’t think the government shutdown is an end to anything. I think it’s a tool. I don’t offer this as an excuse. I say this just trying to help people maybe to understand — not agree with, but to understand — the sentiment our people have about the media. It is a genuine fear, and I can’t emphasize it enough. And when you look at them looking at what’s happened to Sarah Palin, they don’t want that. They don’t. They don’t want to be in those crosshairs. They don’t want any part of it. It’s just they don’t think they can handle it. They don’t think they can overcome it. If they end up being targeted like Palin, they think it’s the end of their career.
CALLER: You know, if we give them credit for being a million people in the media that would vote the way they report it, big deal. We got 20 million listeners of you, like me, that can overturn that. So, he needs to know that we’re behind him no matter what the media says. So I don’t know how we get that message to him.
RUSH: Well, that’s a good point. It’s a good point. I’ll tell him!
CALLER: You know, and I have another question. I know you can fix it because you are the greatest. I can’t get GoToMyPC to work on iPad.
RUSH: Well, have you got the app?
CALLER: I don’t have the iPad. (chuckles)
RUSH: Oh, you don’t have the iPad. You don’t have the iPad.
CALLER: I was just pulling your leg, Rush.
RUSH: That’s so shameless, I can’t reward you.
CALLER: I know. (laughing)
RUSH: (laughing) That’s so, so shameless.
CALLER: I know, but I did say the NPR rerun thing.
RUSH: Yeah, I know. I know.
RUSH: (laughing) Jeez, and I’ve got like 20 seconds, max.
CALLER: By the way, Donald Trump? You know, he’s touching the nerves that need to be touched.
RUSH: All right, he is. I gotta go. I really do. Thanks very much.
