RUSH: Here’s Kathy in Montrose, Colorado, as we start on the phones, Open Line Friday. I’m glad you called. Great to have you here.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks so much for taking my call. Hey, your depression today is worrying me so I wanted to call and tell you about my personal Two If By Tea story and brighten your day.
RUSH: Well, give it a shot.
CALLER: So, here’s what happened. Our youngest daughter is graduating high school. We’re a strict conservative family. We decided we were gonna have your Two If By Tea at her graduation party because we have some flaming liberal family members.
RUSH: Yeah, yeah.
CALLER: We knew it would just drive them crazy.
CALLER: So we order a couple of cases. Number one, you tricked us because we thought we could just hold off, not have any until the party. But we got one, tried it, had to order more. Because we couldn’t stop drinking it. So, anyway —
RUSH: The trick is how good it is, and the original order wasn’t enough?
CALLER: That’s right.
CALLER: Absolutely. So we had to order a bunch more cases. So, anyway, my daughter says, “I’ve gotta take this tea to my American government class. My teacher’s gonna love it.” It’s about two weeks before graduation, she takes it, it is a hit. Her classmates say, “We’re not coming to your party unless you serve the tea.” So she says, “Done deal.” So here we have your tea in this big cooler at our party, and our family is just scowling, they’re looking at it, turning their nose up. Each one slowly goes over and starts drinking it. By the end of the party, everybody’s got a Two If By Tea, even the hardcore liberals.
RUSH: I have to stop you because of time but I love the story. I can’t thank you enough. And I hear this a lot. People buy the tea to give it to liberals, sometimes they hide the label and so forth, just to screw with the liberals, and they all end up loving it, and they hate that they love it.
