RUSH: Who’s next? Nick in Greensboro, North Carolina, welcome to the EIB Network. Hello.
CALLER: Rush, mega dittos. It’s an honor to speak with you.
RUSH: Thank you, sir.
CALLER: Well, I just wanted to say first: Truly, even being on hold for an hour and a half on the EIB Network with the entertaining great ads and everything was great. The reason I called is I got to thinking those mean-spirited executives at Fox News have kind of put a border up around tonight based on the top 10. You know, they’re leaving out the poorest polling, and I feel like those early debaters maybe they should just crash that main show, you know?
CALLER: Why should they honor the borders that those mean-spirited executives at Fox News have put in place?
RUSH: (laughing) I like the way you’re thinking out here. Okay, so the prime time debate at nine o’clock, there are borders around it.
RUSH: It’s only 10 people allowed there, and these other seven have been told that they are second-rate citizens.
CALLER: I think Jeb should be right there to welcome them.
RUSH: Welcome them in. That’s right.
CALLER: And in fact —
RUSH: They want to come out of the shadows on the five o’clock show.
CALLER: I think, in fact, the rest of the panel should start pandering to them the whole time and just —
CALLER: — try to get on the same page with them all the while not knowing what they’re there for.
RUSH: This is great. So we’ve got the main debate going on, this little ruckus, and here come the rejected seven and they storm down the center aisle and they cross the border and they get on stage, and the moderators begin to pander to ’em as members of the majority and so forth and welcome them to the stage and make maybe some of the 10 leave their podium so that these seven can have or maybe stand next to somebody at the podium. (laughing)
CALLER: That’s it.
RUSH: Give ’em amnesty! (laughing)
CALLER: Rush, thanks so much for taking my call, and have a great one.
RUSH: All right. You bet. (laughing) The execs at Fox News have put a border up around the debate! (laughing) Ah, yes. The seven candidates walking out of the shadows, doing the job other Americans wouldn’t do. Doing work other Americans won’t do. But the key to it is the moderators welcoming them and defending them and attacking anybody who gets mad at them for crashing the party.
You know, that would be fun if it were to happen. You know, outside the similarities of the immigration debate, what if one of those seven said, “Screw this! You know, they’re worried about Trump blowing this thing up? I’m blowing it up! I’m going. I’m gonna storm that stage.” Can you see Carly Fiorina running out there and somebody trying to restrain her and pull her back? (laughing) Ah, we can dream, folks, we can dream.
