RUSH: Did you hear about poor John McCain? I don’t know why, because I don’t care enough to dig into why. All I know is that McCain req… (interruption) What? (interruption) I’m just… (interruption) He requested a… He wanted to get to three million followers on Twitter or Facebook. I don’t know why. Is that a crime, not knowing why? They’re telling me, “Be careful what you say.”
I don’t know why he wants three million followers. It’s not the point. The point is when he requested it, many of the people following him dropped. They stopped following him. He apparently made a plea that he wanted to get to three million (I don’t know whether it’s Twitter or Facebook followers), and what happened was the followers he did have unfollowed him. (interruption) Have I created a headline here with this? (interruption) All right. (interruption) You didn’t know about that? (interruption) You didn’t know about that. See, I passed on information.
RUSH: McCain sent on you a tweet: “We’re only 74 Twitter followers away from three million. Spread the word and help us reach this big milestone,” and now they’re unfollowing him. But has anybody…? (interruption) He has 2.98 million followers? How? It’s as far as I’ll go. (interruption) They’re worried about me creating headlines in there. Does that not concern you? Not “concern.” Never mind. (interruption) I know it’s legitimate.
I know it’s legitimate; that’s the point! How in the hell…? (interruption) “Stop it, Rush. Stop it.” (interruption) I know, I know, but I’m not on Twitter, and I am not soliciting followers. But McCain is a senator. (sigh) Never mind. You know what? Just never mind. There’s no way in this highly charged atmosphere. Hey hi, babe, what’s happening in there? Don’t worry. Don’t worry. Not going to jail… today. Today.
