RUSH: Phyllis in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. You’re next. Welcome to the program.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks for taking my call.
RUSH: You bet.
CALLER: I just want to… I’m a little nervous. Sorry. I just wanted to thank you for converting me. I used to be a liberal, but I’ve been listening to you for 20 years. And how I actually stumbled across you is I wasn’t aware of you, but I was home from work, and I was working three to 11, and I was flipping the channels. And this is 1992 when Clinton was running the first time. And I caught you on TV.
CALLER: So you caught my attention (chuckles) and I started listening to some of the things you were saying. It was about the time you kept playing that clip of Clinton at Ron Brown’s funeral.
RUSH: At the memorial, yeah.
CALLER: (giggling) That was so funny. But, anyway, I actually was very liberal my whole life, and then I started listening to you. And you had mentioned your radio show, so then I started listening to the radio, and I started to listen. Even though I didn’t agree with a lot of the things that you were saying at first, after listening to your logic for so long I started to realize that liberalism does not work. And I’m like, “Why didn’t I see this before?”
RUSH: Well, no, no. You eventually did. That’s the key. And you came to it the right way. You intellectually now understand it. You can help spread it. Everybody remembers where they were when they first heard this show.
