RUSH: Here’s Robert in Greenville, South Carolina. Welcome to the EIB Network. Hi.
CALLER: Hey, Rush. Thanks. Good news. Bill Gates is gonna be at Clemson University this afternoon I guess spilling his drivel to the students there, so at least he’ll be spreading the —
RUSH: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Clinton University —
CALLER: Did I say Clinton? I meant Bill Gates. I’m sorry.
CALLER: Oh, Clemson University, yeah. He’s gonna be there this afternoon.
RUSH: I thought you said Clinton University, and I said, what did I miss?
CALLER: Well, although they could change it, it wouldn’t surprise me a lot. Anyway, the reason I called —
CALLER: — if I’m not mistaken, isn’t the current RNC debate system the one they fixed from 2012? Didn’t they come out after the Candy Crowley thing and the George Stephanopoulos thing where they said we’re gonna fix this because obviously it was slanted too heavily to the left, and yet this is what we wound up with again? Is this the best they can do?
RUSH: Your memory on this may be better than mine. I don’t remember that. What I remember them saying was that they were going to restructure the way the debates looked, like who got into them, because there were too many people on stage. Whatever they said they were gonna fix, they didn’t, whatever it was. I don’t remember them saying they were gonna let the left have such a strong hand in moderating. If you remember that, then I —
CALLER: No, I thought they were gonna do the opposite, that they were gonna try and fix it to where they had a more receptive host to the debates as opposed to the ones that were so —
RUSH: Where are they gonna find those?
CALLER: Well, I think Fox is about as close as they’re gonna get, and that’s just another —
RUSH: Well, they thought they did. I am sure they thought the Fox debate was gonna be a fix.
CALLER: I heard someone suggest that you, Michael Medved, and there was a third that they were saying should host the debate. Maybe it was Cruz or somebody that said that, and I thought, well, that’s an idea. That would be a ratings boost if ever there was one.
RUSH: You think so?
CALLER: Why don’t you guys get together and do it?
RUSH: I don’t know.
CALLER: Rush, come on, man, you can find one evening. You don’t need to prepare.
RUSH: No, no. That’s not it. I think if I moderate a debate, it ought to be a Democrat debate.
CALLER: Well, that’d be nice, too.
RUSH: I mean, if you’re gonna even this out and we’re gonna make this fair, you let me moderate the next debate with Hillary and the socialist and the abs.
