RUSH: Bloomington, Indiana, let’s head back to phones. This is Dan. Thank you for waiting, sir. It’s great to have you on the program.

CALLER: Rush, what a tremendous thrill up my leg it is to speak with you.

RUSH: (laughing)

CALLER: It was one of the momentous events that you always remember where you were. When I first listened to you in 1988, I was on Highway 70 east of Indianapolis when you came on, and I heard you for the first time, and it was like a bolt out of the sky. I couldn’t believe somebody was on the radio saying the things that you were saying, and I remember exactly where I was. It was quite a thrill and I remember telling people, “You’ve gotta hear this guy. I cannot believe that this guy’s on the radio.”

RUSH: I’m guessing it only took you five minutes to come to this conclusion.

CALLER: Oh, not even that long.

RUSH: Yeah, I was gonna say, didn’t take anywhere near a whole show.


RUSH: You ought to see the crease in my pants. If you got a tingle up your leg, you ought to see the crease in my pants.

CALLER: I’ve got friends listening to this. I hope they know what I was talking about, the Chris Matthews thing. But I want to say regarding the church, before I get to my point about Santorum, the Bible is very specific that conservatism is from God. Ecclesiastes chapter 10, verse 2, says a wise man’s heart directs him toward the right when a foolish man’s heart directs him toward the left. Straight out of the Bible. But I wanted to say that I think Rick Santorum, I’m feeling good about him, and I believe that he’s ultimately gonna be the nominee. I think the process is working, and the longer we look at all these candidates, the more we see and understand who the true conservative is, and I think Santorum, you’ve said this before, he speaks it, it pours out of him, he’s fluent in conservatism, and Romney’s protesting that he is one.

RUSH: I agree with you, I think conservatism is in Santorum’s bodily fluids, and, because of that, he’s able to articulate it without thinking about it.

CALLER: And Obama wants Romney as the candidate, not just because of Obamacare, but because Romney, I think, is going to be the candidate that he can run his class warfare campaign off of much easier. Him versus the haves, the haves versus the have-nots.

RUSH: I think that’s what Occupy Wall Street was all about. I think you’re right about that.
