RUSH: Now to the Breck Girl and Barack Obama. I am convinced that Barack Obama has either heard about, or actually listens to this program. The reason I say this is because of a comment that Barack Obama made about the Breck Girl. We have this update theme when we have Breck Girl news, it’s the Breck Girl singing ‘I am Woman’ because he’s been proclaimed by Kate Michelman as a candidate for the first female president. “Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) slipped in a compliment — of sorts — about a fellow 2008 hopeful during his appearances on the Iowa stump last weekend.” Obama, who was clean and articulate, said, ”I want to wait and hear what John Edwards has to say, he’s kind of good-looking.’ Obama envisioned Iowa caucus-goers from the small town of Clinton telling themselves. During an appearance in West Burlington, Iowa, the phrase appeared again, this time with Edwards as ‘kind of cute.”
Now, if you’re the Breck Girl, this is not what you said about you out there, especially by one of your Democrat opponents. I am convinced that our use of the ‘I am Woman’ tune sung by the Breck Girl, John Edwards, has filtered to the Obama campaign. “One Edwards supporter was nonplussed by the reference, coming as Obama stresses rising above petty politics and chafes at press attention to his own good looks. ‘Substance is what makes Edwards stand out from the pack,’ the supporter said.” Well, let’s talk about substances, because there was a white powder that showed up at the Breck Girl’s office. Turns out that it was not anthrax. ‘The white powder in an envelope discovered Wednesday at the national headquarters of [the Breck Girl did] not contain anthrax, according to a Chapel Hill police spokeswoman.’ Word in North Carolina is that if it’s baby powder, Edwards will sue Johnson & Johnson. If it’s baking powder, he will sue Arm & Hammer, and if it’s cocaine, he will return it to his Hollywood buddies.
Speaking of the Breck Girl, ladies and gentlemen, he was at a rally at Bennett College [for women]. The audio is hard to hear, gotta warn you about this. This is the Breck Girl telling these students at Bennett College about the upcoming threat of global warming.
EDWARDS (garbled): If you were to read this analysis of what happens if the climate temperature changes on the face of the earth rises three to eight degrees over the course of the next 75 years, it’s frightening. It will make global war look like heaven. Migration of hundreds of millions of people, not enough food, not enough water, incredible political upheaval — and we, the United States of America, we are 4% of the world’s population. We are making 25% of the world’s greenhouse gases. We are not an example for good.
RUSH: I’m going to read that to you in case you had trouble understanding every word there that the Breck Girl said. He said, “If you were to read this analysis of what happens, if the climate temperature changes on the face of the earth rises three to eight degrees over the course of the next 75 years, it’s frightening. It will make global war look like heaven.” Global warming will look like hell. It’ll make world war look like heaven compared to what’s going to happen to the planet based on global warming. “Migration of hundreds of millions of people, not enough food, not enough water, incredible political upheaval,’ and here comes the old saw that’s been bandied about now for 20 years: “We, the United States of America, we are 4% of the world’s population, we are making 25% of the world’s greenhouse gases. We are not an example for good.”
Once again, Democrats are bashing their own country, which is just typical, and it’s also nonsensical. Besides that, man’s total on the planet does not contribute anywhere near 25% of the world’s so-called greenhouse gases. Nature does that. Man contributes about 4% of the world’s greenhouse gases. Interesting story today in the New York Post: “Obama Surging.” Now, the truth is that Obama is down by seven points nationally. Yet he’s surging, but that’s a misread on this. Obama is not surging. What’s happening here, if there is a surge, it is in the Hillary tumble. Mrs. Bill Clinton was at 40% in January, 30% in March. That’s a drop of a total of 25% so far, given where she started. Obama’s at 23%. He was flat, 21% in January. He’s 23% in March. He’s up two points on Mrs. Clinton, but he’s not really surging. Hillary is down, and that’s why they are getting closer.
We are getting closer to being able to establish a graveyard for media templates for the 2008 election. For example, Commander in Chief, the TV show with Geena Davis, histoire, and everybody knows what that show was about. That show was to prepare America for the concept of a female president. Of course, that show bombed. It bombed royally. Of course the big-time liberal radio talk show network went bankrupt Katie Couric? Need I say more? So this graveyard of media templates for the 2008 election is piling up. Now we’ve got this “Obama Surging” headline. There are stories throughout the Drive-By Media today about how a lot of Democrats are saying, “We don’t want to be subjected to this inevitability of the Hillary campaign. We’re not just a bunch of sponges out here that are going to dutifully vote for Hillary because it’s inevitable.” There are more and more stories about how Hillary is old, and the Clintons, they’re old. ‘That was then and this is now and we need younger, newer, fresher people who are not going where they’re going simply because they’re entitled.’
Speaking of Obama. You notice a rift going on between the Reverend Sharpton and Obama? Reverend Sharpton says that Obama is not down for the struggle and he hasn’t done enough for the community. A news report said that Reverend Al is a little jealous out there that Obama’s being called “clean,” when Reverend Al takes a bath every day; when Obama is being called “articulate” and, of course, nobody’s ever had any problem understanding what Reverend Sharpton is saying even when he uses bullhorn. He’s a little jealous out there. He’s denying that story is accurate, but the story is nevertheless out there. Our microphones, our cameras are everywhere, and it was just the other day the Reverend Al went to the Obama headquarters, stood outside with his megaphone.
(Playing of Al Sharpton spoof.)
RUSH: Ah, the Reverend Sharpton upset that Obama not down for the struggle.
RUSH: Mike, go grab Mama Told Me not to Run. Even though it’s from the 2004 campaign, I’m in an Al Sharpton mood today. (Laughing.) “Your mama’s so fat, on a scale of one to ten, she’s a 747.” (Laughing.) I gotta hear this. This is from the 2004 campaign. The Reverend Sharpton, all he wanted was his matching funds and he was out the door.
(Mama Told Me Not to Run song.)
RUSH: “As soon as I get my matching funds, I’m out the door.” There aren’t going to be any matching funds this year because Obama is in the way. I have to hear this again, folks.
(Al Sharpton/Obama spoof.)
RUSH: (Laughing.) I can just see it. I just see Sharpton outside Obama’s headquarters with a megaphone. Ah, yes. (laughing) Having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have, Rush Limbaugh, with talent on loan from God.
