RUSH: Angela in Montclair, Virginia. One more before we go to our brief time-out. Hi, Angela.
CALLER: Hello, Rush 24/7 dittos. I just want to let you know, you should stop acting as if you’re not supportive of the Tea Party, that somehow you’re RINO or for the establishment Republican. I’m not a member of the Tea Party.
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait. I need to stop saying what? I didn’t understand.
CALLER: You act as if you’re not supportive of the Tea Party, that somehow or another you’re part of the establishment, which to me is another name for RINO. That’s how you try to make Governor Daniels appear. I’m from Indiana. I don’t support the Tea Party. I agree with Governor Daniels. There were a lot of us that were so tired of Lugar. And so there were plenty of people who weren’t part of the establishment and weren’t part of the Tea Party that just wanted Lugar out because —
RUSH: Well, now, wait just a second.
RUSH: I have never said that I think everybody in the establishment is a RINO.
CALLER: No, you didn’t say it, but you implied it.
RUSH: But Governor Daniels is an establishment Republican. There’s no question that he is. He would say so.
CALLER: Well, I’m not an establishment Republican —
RUSH: I happen to like Governor Daniels. He’s extraordinary on budget matters.
CALLER: Look, I called you before about Governor Daniels, and you and I had it out. I only call you when I disagree with you, so I don’t call very much. So, anyway, it just seems to me that you tried to act as if you’re not part of the Tea Party, if you’re not supportive of the Tea Party, that somehow or another you’re pushing the establishment —
RUSH: No, I haven’t said that. You are inferring that. I have never said it —
RUSH: — which means you’re running around with a guilty conscious.
CALLER: No, I’m not. (laughing)
RUSH: ‘Cause I’ve never inferred it and I’ve never said it.
CALLER: Well, let me say this. I joined Rush 24/7 I think in 2007 because you said there would be a fourth hour. I have yet to experience the fourth hour.
RUSH: See, you are a malcontent.
CALLER: (laughing) I am not.
RUSH: Yes, you are.
CALLER: I told Snerdley a while ago, and he said, “E-mail it.” I said, “No, I really want to tell him this myself.” Anyway. All right, well —
RUSH: What did Snerdley tell you to e-mail?
CALLER: That I’ve been a member of Rush 24/7 since 2007 because I wanted to experience the fourth hour, and you haven’t done it. But I enjoy Rush 24/7, I still have it, but I just wanted to —
RUSH: You’re just trying to stir it up out there, Angela, but I love you for it.
RUSH: Angela, what do you do for a living?
CALLER: I’m a stay-at-home mom.
RUSH: Are you really? Okay, cool.
CALLER: Yeah. I enjoy it. I have five daughters, but two are adults and three are in school, and my husband is service military, so I enjoy it.
CALLER: It’s a wonderful life.
RUSH: I don’t know how you could possibly be mad at me then.
CALLER: I’m not mad at you!
RUSH: Could have fooled me. Snerdley — Snerdley — I’m gonna tell you what. Snerdley, before I took your call, he said, “Look, she’s a little mad. She’s not terribly angry, but she’s a little put out with you so you need to be on guard.”
CALLER: Well, the way it seems, the way they try to phrase everything is you have to be Tea Party in order to be legitimate conservative Republican, and I did a —
RUSH: No, I’m telling you that you are inferring that. I’ve not said it. I’ve not even tried to imply it. There’s certainly more than Tea Party and establishment factions in the Republican Party.
CALLER: I’m just flat-out conservative. I’m conservative Republican.
RUSH: Well, join the club. Join the club. I’ll tell you what I’m gonna do. Do you have an iPad?
RUSH: Do you know what one is?
RUSH: All right. Well, I’m gonna send you one so that when I do the next fourth hour you’ll be able to watch it on it.
CALLER: Oh, okay!
RUSH: All right.
CALLER: That sounds great.
RUSH: Okay, so you hang on, Snerdley will get where we’re supposed to send it to you and you’ll have it tomorrow, okay?
CALLER: All right, thanks a lot.
RUSH: You want a white one or a black one?
CALLER: Black one.
RUSH: Black one. Do you care if it’s with AT&T or Verizon?
CALLER: Verizon, please.
RUSH: Okay. Done.
