RUSH: Moraga, California. Stewart, you’re next, and I’m glad you called, sir.
CALLER: Rush, do you remember when the timeline for ending the war depended —
RUSH: Stop it just a second! Stop just a second. Sir, do you have an iPhone?
RUSH: Would you like one?
RUSH: I’m going to send you one, and you know why?
RUSH: Because you got right into it.
RUSH: You just asked your question.
CALLER: Thank you, sir.
RUSH: You just got right into it: ‘Rush, about this timeline…?’ You just got right into it. You couldn’t ask me how I was doing. You didn’t blah, blah, blah, blah. I don’t mind the other way, but I just loved it. So if you hang on here after this is over, we’re going to send you an iPhone, because we’ll get all the information necessary to do it. I’m going to send you an extra cord, charger, and dock for the thing as well.
RUSH: All right. Now, even though you started out right, I interrupted you, but that was for a good and gracious reason. Start again, please, sir.
CALLER: Thank you. You’re very gracious. The reason I called was to ask if you remembered when the timeline for a war depended on when the enemy surrendered.
RUSH: Uh… (laughs) Yes.
CALLER: Why is it that John Edwards and the rest of the Democrats don’t understand that principle?
RUSH: Well, I think they do, but they’re too far gone politically now in the investment of defeat, and their line is, ‘It isn’t a war. It’s a civil war. It’s sectarian and we can’t stop it, and there’s nothing we can do and they’re going to have to fight it out for themselves.’ They’re being led around by their kook-fringe leftists, the anti-war movement in this country, and that’s who they are proving fealty to, and nothing is going to change that. They’re not interested in victory. You have to understand now, Stewart (which I’m sure you do, politically), the absolute worst thing that can happen is for this to work, and for this to succeed, and for there to be victory at the end of it. That’s the worst, absolute worst thing, that can happen, especially if we make significant progress toward that prior to 2008.
CALLER: That’s correct from the Democrats’ point of view. Mr. Limbaugh, there’s one other thing I wanted to mention about Fouad Ajami.
CALLER: And the evidence that he was right last night is that Syria right now is very upset with the rest of the Arab world for not condemning Israel, which last week did a long-range bombing strike into eastern Syria, and none of the other Arab countries are complaining about what Israel did because they think Syria deserved it because what was bombed was a missile battery that was provided by I-ran.
RUSH: Exactly. And it may have been nuclear. They’re still looking into that, but there might have been some nuclear sites that Israel also hit. Interesting point. He did make that point, that nobody is condemning Israel in the Middle East, and that is unreal. That has almost never happened.
CALLER: Thank you very much, sir. I appreciate your graciousness, and I will use your gift to the maximum potential.
RUSH: Have you ever seen an iPhone? Have you ever seen one used?
CALLER: I’ve seen them at the store, but I have never seen one used.
RUSH: Well, you are going to be blown away. Do you have a Mac or do you have Windows?
CALLER: Presently I have Windows, but that could change.
RUSH: Well, it will work with Windows. You have iTunes, use iTunes?
CALLER: Yes, sir.
RUSH: All right. Well, you need iTunes. You need the latest version of iTunes to activate the phone and sync all the data. It’s sort of like an iPod except it has much more on it. You’ll be stunned and blown away.
CALLER: I am sure I will. I’m already ecstatic. Thank you.
RUSH: Good. I like appreciative people. Now, stay on hold here so we can get all the vital information necessary to get this to you.
