“Let’s put it in perspective, folks. One day, a tree was cut down, and it was processed into paper. The paper was then turned into stationery. That stationery then became a four-page letter with 41 signatures that the free market has now valued at $2,100,100.”

“We broke eBay! And as such, we have heard from south Florida lawyers who suspect that there might be a hanging chad scenario here. We are, of course, going to just flick that away as we would a Lake Erie midge during a New York Yankees game in the American League divisional series playoffs.”

“Harry Reid said, ‘We didn’t have time, or we could have gotten every senator to sign the letter.’ Just write another letter and have the remaining senators sign it — we’ll put it back on eBay and do it all over again!”

“Story: ‘Malaysia’s Muslim men are suffering sleepless nights and cannot pray properly because their thoughts are distracted by a growing number of women who wear sexy clothes in public, according to a prominent cleric.’ When I read that I thought, ‘What kind of wimps are these guys?'”

“Dennis Kucinich looks like Pinocchio without the long nose.”

“The people writing the history of the Bush administration for the next 30 years are going to be people who detest Bush, who will fill their history with lies. But eventually, I think, Bush will be considered one of few presidents who has actually sought to transform America’s place in the world — and out of necessity.”

“Don’t be surprised if you see Hillary and Michael Bloomberg on a third-party ticket.”

“I am not here to write campaign brochures for these candidates. If you have listened to this show for any period of time, you know full well where I stand on the issues.”

“Story: ‘Mrs. Clinton snared an influential endorsement of her own: Henry Cisneros, the first Latino secretary of Housing and Urban Development.’ Can I rewrite that for you? ‘Hillary picked up support fromanindicted politician who had mistresses.’ Subhead: ‘And it’s not her husband!'”

“A lot of e-mails: ‘Rush, what are you doing for your birthday?’ I am watching football: that’s the answer. By choice, it will be bliss.”

“This guy — George Bush — is lied about and has been vilified constantly for seven and a half years now. He’s the one person that has taken the defenseof this country seriously, and yet you liberals think he’s a dumb ass and Obama is brilliant. In fact, it’s the other way around.”

“What’s obvious is that Obama didn’t care about seeing the troops — he just wanted a photo op.”

“Some friends of mine came by and screened a movie for me called Henry Poole is Here. I thought, ‘This is going to be boring as hell. Why can’t they bring me some shoot-em-up action flick?’ But I couldn’t take my attention away from it; I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it.”

“Obama didn’t even consider Hillary! This is the biggest sign of disrespect that anybody in the Democrat Party has ever shown the Clintons!”

“So once again, Obama compares our incursion into Iraq as a moral equivalent example of the Russians going into Georgia. You have to ask the question: Is he just stupid, or is he just pandering to his wacko nutcase fringe base?”

“It’s Chicago: everybody knows that Mayor Daley runs the bookstores and the magazine stands! Mayor Daley runs Obama, for crying out loud!”

“Chinese couples are allowed one child because they can’t feed all of their people, and most people want a son. So if they get pregnant with a daughter, what do they do? They abort! And they keep aborting until they get a son! Now, that’s a policy Obama can support!”

“Obama’s for infanticide; it is not an overstatement to say so. He’s has two daughters, I know, Mr. Snerdley. But all liberals exempt themselves from their own stupidity.”

“I have a new name for Sarah Palin: ‘The Lorena Bobbitt of Republican politics’.”

“We have the Democrat Party’s presidential candidate, this magnificent man, this man who has graced us with his birth and his presence, the likes of which we have never seen trod the soil of the American political turf… and he can’t chair a meeting without it falling apart. Great unifier, ladies and gentlemen.”

“I did something I rarely do: I picked up the phone last night and I talked to some people. I don’t use the phone much because generally there’s somebody on the other end.”

“McCain has a golden opportunity here. McCain is the solution to the economic crisis. He’s talking tax cuts, he’s talking capitalism, and he’s talking economic growth. McCain should just tell everybody that a vote for McCain can save the market.”

“The intellectuals say, ‘The Republican Party has to have a big tent.’ That’s code for: ‘We have to have some pro-choicers in our party to get rid of the influence of these hayseed hicks in the south who are pro-life.'”

“These ‘moderate’ Republicans who wanted the ‘big tent’, they have taken the party exactly where they said they wanted it to be, and when it got there, these little cowards jumped the ship. I have lost all respect for these people.”

By hiding every bit of information about Obama that was damaging.”

“Exit polls of Obama voters show that they know diddly-squat about anything. Obama voters are the new Rio Lindans! Hey, it’s exit poll data, and not mine.”

I want you all to realize that the vast majority of you have been laid off not because of current economic circumstances, but because of what the people you work for fear is going to happen starting next year.

“I won’t be surprised if Blago weasels out of this, and, frankly, I wouldn’t be disappointed. It would serve as a great daily reminder of just what you get with Democrat power politics.”

“When Ronald Reagan took office in 1981, the top marginal tax rate was 70%. When Ronald Reagan left office in 1989, the top marginal tax rate was 28%. The only way you can say his tax cuts didn’t lift us out of a recession is if you want to lie like Bill Clinton did.”

“Stop trash-talking the economy, Obama. Stop using people’s emotions to further your political ambitions.”

“If government spending is the salve, then why stop at $1 trillion? It’s sort of like the same argument I make about the minimum wage. If $10 an hour is so great, why not $20 and hour? In fact, why not $50?”

“When I started my program in August of 1988, there were 125 radio stations doing talk radio. Today there are 2,010. It’s not our fault we have succeeded, it’s to our credit: we’ve done so in the free market.”

“One of my greatest regrets is that my father died before we acquired EIB One. He would not have believed it! I would not have been able to get him out of the cockpit jump seat.”

“There’s also some news that another governor has been tagged as a client of the same hooker that Eliot Spitzer used. Well, I know who it is, but I don’t have a source that’s firm enough. Yes, it’s a blue state, Snerdley, and there’s lot of eagles in this state.”

“There’s actually a piece at the Huffing and Puffington Post on what Mary Jo Kopechne would have thought of Ted’s career. The last line: ‘Who knows — maybe she’d feel it was worth it.’ Are we to believe now that liberal young women like to die for the cause of advancing Kennedys’ careers?”

“This is the Media Tweak of the Day: You have to be brainwashed or mentally deranged to think that Barack Obama is good for America.”

“The world rejected Obama, the world rejected Michelle (My Belle) Obama, and the world rejected The Oprah. And this is the guy who is going to talk Iran into giving up its nukes?”

“Obama and Michelle have such an ego that they thought they were going to pull this off just by showing up. Is he such a fool that he doesn’t realize that these people hate America more than they like him? Does he not realize that they are delighted to make him look foolish in order to take a swipe at his country?”

“It is not coincidental or insignificant that Chicago was eliminated first. I mean, this was a bitch slap, folks, upside the head!”

“Mr. President, America inspires the world just by being. America inspired the world long before you were born, and we will inspire the world long after your presidency — despite your efforts to impugn this nation.”

“Steve Schmidt has said that Sarah Palin in 2012 would be a ‘catastrophe’ for the GOP. This is one of the things that I was asked to comment on today, and here’s what I wrote back: ‘I think it’s time for the McCain crowd to acknowledge that they’re losers and pack it in.'”

“You know, Obama got his Nobel Peace Prize based on 11 days of work. And what was the most talked-about event in Obama’s first 11 days? Me saying I wanted him to fail. This man owes me.”

“I probably do have power, but I don’t get up every morning and say, ‘Okay, how can I manipulate things to get the outcomes I want?’ That’s not at all what’s in my mind when I do this program. I’m broadcaster, and what’s in my mind is doing a good show.”

“How can I trick the media into dumping on Obama? Well, as you well know, I can play the media like a Stradivarius, and it’s all based on one simple reality: the arrogant SOBs refuse to listen to this program.”

“Make no mistake — the NFL is as politicized as anything else is in this country when DeMaurice Smith and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson can pressure the commissioner into saying who can and cannot even apply for ownership.”

I don’t know if he got a vaccine or not, but I know he knows how to sneeze right because he was there when Kathleen Sebelius demonstrated how to put snot on your sleeve instead of in a Kleenex.”

“I’ve railed against this notion that you can’t win the presidency without the female vote, because conservatism will attract women. Conservatism will attract everybody. Conservatism is America!”

“Remember, it was just three months ago that McChrystal made his request for more troops, and we’re continuing to dither here. I have such empathy for all of you out there who are military families.”

“You want to hear a joke? Obama plans to announce a war on deficits in his State of the Union speech next year. I don’t believe a word of this! He’s all of a sudden going to become a deficit hawk? What moron is going to believe this?”

“Obama appeared weak and small on his trip, and he didn’t even leave with anything prearranged to be announced as a positive — which is hard to believe. Presidents usually don’t fly off and ad-lib.”

“You people don’t know this, but Snerdley doesn’t even start screening calls until about a half hour into the show because he knows I’m not going to take one right away. So he sits in there and fakes screening calls to make it look like he’s working when he’s not.”

“Sarah Palin has far more patriotism and love of country and decency in her than Barack Obama could hope to have. This woman would be so much better leading this country than what we have now because we are being led over the cliff into an abyss.”

“Snerdley thinks that I’m the reason The Oprah quit. See, I tell you this to show you how hard it is for me to keep a level head. If I believed everything my staff told me about me, I wouldn’t be able to fit in the door to get in here.”

“Everyone over a certain age always talks about how they were scarred forever by the little drills we had to do in case the Russians launched a nuke at us. I was not scarred by it at all because I had the sense to realize that a desk was not going to protect me from 10,000 zillion degrees.”

“No, it’s not really called the iTampon, Snerdley — it’s the iPad. I made a remark, though, when I first saw it was named the iPad: ‘That sounds like a menstrual device!’ Then a bunch of bloggers actually gave it the name ‘iTampon.'”

“Obama knows he’s governing against the will of the American people, and therefore his definition of success is succeeding in defying the American people. That’s why I say I want him to fail.”

“I wonder how former Vice President Algore felt today when he found out that on his global warming team is none other than — dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut dadelut — Osama Bin Laden. We have to sign that guy up for a Nobel Peace Prize. He should be a joint recipient.”

So, yes: We’ll put a chicken in every pot and a car bomb in every garage in Afghanistan.”

“So according to Pelosi, quit work, indulge your fantasies, become an artist or a documentarian, and let the rest of us pay for your healthcare bill. And, by the way, if you happen to get pregnant and want to have an abortion, no worries — we’ll pay for that, too.”

“I wouldn’t be surprised if they try to cram amnesty into this bill, too. Why not? If you’re trying to get everything done in the Senate with 51 votes, why leave anything out of this? I probably shouldn’t have said that because I’ve given them an idea. Oh, well!”

“In this culture of ours, people have this insatiable desire to be known, insatiable desire for fame: Facebook, MySpace, Space-Butt — whatever it is.”

“Snerdley, we’re about to get creamed. Look at that squall line coming in. Holy smokes, we’ve got a tornado watch out there! I didn’t even know that. Cool! Flood watch, too? Oh, this is great! Count me in! I love inclement weather like this!”

“Harry Smith is actually intelligent in one way. He knew that talk radio across the country, which has 15,000 times the audience of his piddling little morning show on CBS, would give him all kinds of publicity, and it’s worked. But we don’t mind. Happy to help our favorite liberal at CBS, Harry Smith.”

“Wherever there’s a problem with a business, odds are somewhere in the mix is going to be a union.”

“One of the most important people in Obama’s life as was Frank Marshall Davis, the avowed communist who raised him. Barack Obama also always honors the infamous Jew hater, Louis Farrakhan, with the title ‘minister’. And this guy’s worried about truthful, informed political speech?”

“Palin is exactly right. How do you learn about nukes as a community organizer?”

“Most people don’t have the courage or guts to come down one way or another on an issue; they want to maintain some gray area so they can be perceived as open-minded. And, of course, when I add to my opinions my trademark braggadocio, people just go, ‘Hell with him! Who does he think he is?'”

“There is no greed in the insurance industry. They’re practically nonprofits at this point. They’re just trying to make enough money here to stay in operation in Massachusetts.”

“Has anybody looked at Obama’s fingers lately? Are his fingers fat? We already know Obama is somewhat clumsy, but could it be that he has been ramping up government spending by typing ‘billions’ when he just meant ‘millions’?”

“I think Obama looks at Tennessee and doesn’t see a risk reward there, he doesn’t see any benefit to going. I mean, those are bitter clingers.”

“For every Republican who’s running for office and wants to hold it, Chris Christie is your model. Not only is he talking the game, he’s getting it done. He’s actually taking on all of these liberal special interests. He’s taking them on without any fear of reelection. He doesn’t care. He just loves the state.”

“So Obama said BP is going to pay for the damage caused by the oil leak. What I want to know is: Who’s going to pay for Obama’s damage to the private sector? Answer: us. But it ought to come out of Obama’s back pocket — he’s the destructor.”

“Too bad Obama’s not mad at 10% unemployment. I’d like to see him get mad at illegal immigration, too. I’d like to see him get mad that our southern border is one of the most dangerous places in the world. Instead, he’s mad at the state of Arizona for trying to protect itself.”

“They found three more people involved in this Times Square thing, and they’re not from Texas, folks — they’re from Pakistan.”
