RUSH: Here’s Alex in Alexandria, Virginia. Hi, sir. Thank you for calling.
CALLER: Good afternoon, Rush. Thanks for allowing me to speak. I have to be quick. I have disagreement with you when you call the uninformed voter. I don’t think they are uninformed at all. I haven’t met one uninformed voter yet. Really, I try. They are deceptive. They just want the people they are voting in in. They know who those people are. They know what is coming, and they’re all about it, they’re in favor of it. It’s not they’re uninformed. Actually, they are very well informed indeed.
RUSH: Well, let me see. Your contention is the uninformed voter really isn’t uninformed and is voting exactly for what he wants to happen and likes what’s going on and wants more of it?
CALLER: Absolutely. We didn’t have a problem like that when (unintelligible) 50% of population became, you know, that way, but after that happened, the tipping point was achieved and here we are —
RUSH: Okay, so the low-information voter is actually a very sophisticated sponge. His theory is the low-information voter is probably 50% that gets some kind of government check. They know full well why they’re getting it and who’s giving it to ’em and they know full well how to keep the train going, and that’s vote Democrat. That’s his theory. Therefore, there are no low-information voters.
Now, I mean, we could take issue with this, and I might on another occasion. I just want to tell you, Alex, that the reason why you’ll never run into a low-information voter is that the low-information voters don’t know that they are low-information, by definition. They don’t know enough to know that they don’t know anything. It’s kind of hard to understand at first, but then when a light goes off, it makes total sense. By definition, being low-information, they don’t know that they’re low-information. They don’t know what they don’t know. And that’s why you don’t ever find any.
I’ve never found anybody that admitted they’re low-information. Everybody talks about ’em, but nobody thinks they are one. But we know they’re everywhere. (interruption) Oh, you agree with the guy? (interruption) Look, there’s no question. I mean, remember those man on the street things that Jay Leno used to? If those are real and not scripted, if those are real, then there can be no doubt there’s low-information people, and we are dwarfed by ’em.
The Obama phone lady, Obama phone? Yeah, I think they’re all over the place. But they don’t know it. That’s why, you know, I’ve been talking about the low-information voter, I’ve been insulting them for 20 years, and I’ve never had one of them bitch because nobody thinks I’m talking about them. It’s been the safest group to criticize that I’ve ever come up with. And I did come up with the term “low-information voter.” Not that that’s a big deal, of course.
