RUSH: Here is Sunny in Seattle. It’s great to have you on the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Thank you. I just called to say thank you. My husband and I got home yesterday from a 17-day hiking trip in the Himalayas. We had no access to news, so we missed both the vice president and the second presidential debate. But we’re 24/7 members. So, as soon as we got Internet, we downloaded all the programs for the past few weeks. We listened to your podcasts on our cell phone the entire 20-hour flight home from Bhutan. Now we’re all caught up and we’re ready for tonight’s debate.
RUSH: (laughing) And, by the way, what you know has not been corrupted or polluted by the Drive-Bys in the tank for Obama. You’ve got the straight skinny on what happened.
CALLER: Well, and we knew we could count on that, so that’s why we did it that way. And we have a splitter, and we were both listening off of one cell phone, you know, we had our headphones in, and you would say something, we would both bust out laughing. We’re sitting up there in the plane and it’s pitch dark and quiet, everybody’s asleep, and we’re laughing out loud because of your very, very shrewd commentary. We just really loved it.
RUSH: So you were hiking in the Himalayas, and you had a 20-hour flight home?
CALLER: Yes. Well, if you count all the legs, you know, Bhutan to Bangkok, Bangkok to Tokyo, Tokyo to Seattle, yeah.
RUSH: All right. So it wasn’t 20 hours nonstop?
CALLER: On, oh, no, no, no, but it was just as bad because, you know, you barely had any time to stretch in between the next leg.
RUSH: I hope you’re flying business or first?
CALLER: Well, we certainly did. I met a gentleman many years ago who told me, “Sunny, if you don’t fly first class, your heirs will.”
RUSH: (laughing) I love that. I absolutely love that. If you don’t fly first class, your heirs will. For those of you in Rio Linda, she means people who would inherit the estate when they pass away. That means spend it now. Don’t leave it for others. I love that.
RUSH: You’ve made my day here. What do you listen to the podcast on, what kind of phone do you have?
CALLER: Well, I can’t say cause it’s not the “i” word.
RUSH: You can say.
CALLER: I have a Samsung Galaxy and I really love it.
RUSH: Do you really?
CALLER: Yeah, we love it.
RUSH: How much did they pay you to buy it?
CALLER: Pardon me?
RUSH: How much did they pay you to walk out of the store? I’m just joking.
CALLER: They didn’t, but, you know, I’m old now, Rush, and that screen is really big, and I like that big screen.
RUSH: I know. I’m just kidding. I have all the admiration in the world for Samsung. I just couldn’t resist.
CALLER: It’s all the size of the screen. The older I get the bigger the screen needs to be for me.
RUSH: Well, to each his own. That’s the great thing about the free market. What you want is available.
CALLER: That’s true, that’s true. I will tell you today is my husband’s birthday. This will make his day that I got to talk to you.
RUSH: Thank you so much. That’s really nice of you. I appreciate it, and thank you for the plug for the podcasts. I don’t spend enough time talking about all the Internet services that we provide, but let me just for a brief moment here. At the end of every program we have available both from our website and from iTunes podcasts of each day’s show, and they are separated by hours. You can get the first hour, second hour, and third hour, and they are of course without commercials. We don’t sell commercial time in the podcasts. They’re up and available for download within 30 minutes after the program and they are free with a subscription to Rush 24/7. There is so much value on our website, and I’m really remiss in not talking about it.
Now we’ve gone digital with the Limbaugh Letter. That’s its own app now, the Limbaugh Letter, which is the most widely read published political newsletter in the country. That’s where I relent and interview people once a month. That’s my job is to interview somebody for the Limbaugh Letter, and we’ve just now gone digital. We’ve got an app for that, and it’s free the rest of the year and three prior issues this year, to let everybody know about the publication. So whatever is up there on the app now is free for the remainder of the year and three previous issues. Limbaugh Letter is the name of the app and it’s at the iTunes App Store.
