RUSH: Brian, Goldthwaite, Texas. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. I just wanted to express my extreme thanks for helping me understand the area of politics a lot more. I started listening to your show probably about three months ago, and —
RUSH: Three months ago? Where have you been for 23 years?
CALLER: (laughing) Well, actually I’m 25, but —
RUSH: Oh, okay. That explains part of it.
CALLER: I always just went with what my grandmother said and I was never really interested in politics.
RUSH: What did your grandmother say?
CALLER: Well, she’s extreme Democratic liberal, so…
RUSH: Well, what did she say? Did she tell you not to listen or something?
CALLER: Ah, she always told me that you are a liar and not to listen to you.
RUSH: Your little old grandmother told you that I was a liar and that you shouldn’t listen?
CALLER: Yes. Yes.
RUSH: (sigh) Well, you’ve been listening for three months now, so you obviously think your grandmother was wrong?
CALLER: Yeah. I just talked to her the other day and I realized exactly how brainwashed she is on the whole aspect of politics ’cause I asked her who she was voting for next year, and she said that she was voting for Obama.
RUSH: Yeah, it’s just been in her family and it was just handed down to her. It’s probably her DNA and so forth. I have a project for you, Brian: Have her listen with you someday. Start slow with a half hour. Gradually add five minutes every day. You’ll be up to three hours before you know it and you’ll have a brand-new relationship with your grandmother.
